It is with sympathy and great sadness that we announce the passing of Buford “Bo” Cameron. Bo passed away on Thursday, February 15th

Bo was a longstanding member of the emergency medical services family, dedicating his life to helping those in need, starting his career in public safety at just seventeen with the East Ridge Fire Department. Throughout his career he served in numerous public safety positions including as a Reserve Police Officer for the community of Ridge Side in Hamilton County, and an Advanced Emergency Medical Technician with Puckett EMS, Life-Force Ground, Lifeguard Ambulance Service and AMR.
