“He fell from what appeared to be a massive heart attack, and they immediately started working him as well as trying to help the patient that was already there,” Scott Tucker, the city’s fire marshal, told WSB radio.
Nutt was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, but could not be revived, Tucker said.
Nutt began his career with the city in May 1994 and had served as a fire fighter, inspector, investigator and most recently as a firefighter engineer.
“We had a lot that we depended on him for because he was a very good firefighter,” Tucker said. “He was somebody that was knowledgeable. You could depend on him and he had the expertise to do a lot of things.”
An Oklahoma native, Nutt lived in Kennesaw with his wife, Tucker said. He is also survived by a daughter.
