Nottingham EMT a 'role model,' remembered for service


NOTTINGHAM - As rain poured down in Nottingham on Saturday morning - friends, family and colleagues of Diane Nugent came together to remember her life and legacy.

"She was a role model in our department," said Nottingham Fire/Rescue Chief Jay Vilchock. "This tragedy is tough for the town. It's tough for my department - it's tough for my family to endure right now."

Nugent, 51, was an EMT for 3 years in Nottingham, Vilchock said.

She died on Thanksgiving morning while attempting to refuel a generator in a detached garage at a home on Mooers Road.

Officials said the generator was not running at the time, but the garage had been closed up and there was still high levels of carbon monoxide inside.

Nugent wasn't remembered for losing her life, though. Rather, she was known for saving the lives of others.

"She was very dedicated and she strived for excellence in everything she did," Vilchock said. "She is going to leave a great void in the seacoast area emergency services."
