Capt. Scott Ferguson, who served three decades with Rural Metro Fire Department and was known as an accomplished musician in his off-time, died while on duty Sept. 8. He was 57.
Ferguson suffered “a major cardiac event on duty” that left him in very critical condition, said Battalion Chief John Walka. He died at Banner-University Medical Center Tucson surrounded by his family and fellow firefighters.
Ferguson was assigned to Station 72 at 2741 N. Houghton Road, north of East Tanque Verde Road. Before joining Rural Metro, he served two years with the Houston Fire Department, said Walka.
