Remembering Troy Buzzell

Santa Clara City Firefighters Local 1171 and Santa Clara City Fire Department are saddened to announce the loss of one of their own. Fire Captain Troy Buzzell took his own life on February 1, 2021 after a battle with work related PTSD.

In addition to his time as a volunteer firefighter, Brother Buzzell was a 15-year veteran of the Santa Clara City Fire Department. He was heavily involved in all aspects of firefighting, including being a highly respected truck and rescue instructor, Wildland Engine Boss, and member of the FEMA California Task Force 3 - Urban Search and Rescue Team. Brother Buzzell was known for his attention to detail and commitment to excellence. He served his community with honor and distinction and was held in the highest regard by his peers.

Brother Buzzell is survived by his wife and two children.

Condolence cards, gift cards, and the donation items that do not require someone to receive them should be mailed to: Santa Clara Firefighters Foundation c/o Buzzell Family 1124 Walsh Ave, Santa Clara CA 95050. In lieu of flowers, please send monetary donations to the Santa Clara Firefighters Foundation c/o Buzzell Family.

The Santa Clara Fire Department and L1171 will do everything necessary to ensure that his life and service are honored and his memory celebrated. The Department will continue to provide updates on next steps and forthcoming plans to celebrate his life.
