News Release
**UPDATE** Gresham Firefighter Suffers Cardiac Arrest (Photo) - 02/03/23

As the next of kin has been notified, we are releasing that it was Gresham Firefighter Brandon Norbury that suffered cardiac arrest and passed away today. 


Original message below 

GRESHAM, Ore. – It is with a heavy heart the City of Gresham shares one of our Firefighters unexpectedly passed away earlier today. As not all the next of kin have been notified at this time, we are unable to release his name.  

The firefighter suffered cardiac arrest while in the line of duty and was unable to recover despite emergency medical attention. He had been with the Gresham Fire Department since 2008, spent seven years with the Gresham Police Department prior to that, and was a veteran having served our Country as a Navy Seal as well. 

The Gresham Fire Department and City leadership are actively in communication with the family and funeral services are pending. As the City works to support the family and our firefighters that are grieving, we will not be releasing any additional information or conducting interviews at this time. 

The City of Gresham is greatly appreciative of his service. But more than that, our hearts go out to the family and friends as we mourn this tragic loss.
