Gulf County Fire Coordinator Brad Price was helping family members clear debris from Hurricane Michael when a tree fell on his tractor.
Price, 49, died at the scene.
The Wewahitchka native worked as a firefighter and paramedic in Bay County and, in the past, worked for Lynn Haven Fire and Emergency Services.
The Gulf County Sheriff's Office says Price "was known for his service to his community in Gulf County as well as coaching softball for many years."
The Gulf County Fire and Emergency Services also released a statement.
"To Brad’s entire family and friends, on behalf of all the firefighters and emergency staff in Gulf County, we love you, grieve with you, and are praying for all of you."
Price's casket was draped in an American flag and transported to the Bay County Medical Examiners Office, led by a procession of emergency vehicles.
Price is survived by his son, Brandon, and his daughter, Ashleigh.
Our prayers go out to Price's loved ones, his first responder family and all those recovering from the storm ~ including our USFRA staff and many members.
