Roll of Honor

Firefighter
Age: 30
Year of Death: 1972

Eric Oliver

On January 14, 1972, a box alarm came in for a 3 story brick building with heavy fire and smoke showing.  For over 2 hours, the on and off duty member of the Little Rock Fire Department shot thousands of gallons of water into the aged brick building.  The result was a thick, slick coating of ice on everything. Truck 4 was operating their ladder pipe and several men were operating hand lines between the truck and the building when suddenly  a loud noise signaled the collapsing south wall with tons of falling brick and mortar.  Firefighter Eric Oliver from Engine 5 and Firefighter Jerry Jacobs from Truck 4 were fatally crushed by the debris.
