Mutual Aid Swift Water Rescue Boats Hit Sacramento Area
 
03:47
In an effort to strengthen collaboration capabilities between regional emergency responders, enhance protection of critical infrastructure and key resources, and enhance regional catastrophic incident planning, response and recovery, Metro Fire partnered with the Cosumnes Fire Department, Folsom Fire Department, and Sacramento Fire Department to implement a regional boat replacement program. Replacing the region’s boats will provide the Sacramento area with reliable, more efficient, and ultimately safer resources to prevent and respond to flooding and other water emergencies. Additionally, standardizing these resources will increase interoperability and enhance community preparedness and resiliency. The region’s boats serve as valuable resources to monitor waterways and critical infrastructure, respond to flood and other emergencies, and participate in regional catastrophic incident training and planning exercises. Regional boats are a critical resource necessary for an area with one of the highest flood risks in the nation. Flooding within the region could disrupt water supply, destroy farmland, cause landslides, and damage interstates, gas lines, railways and other infrastructure. Metro Fire, on behalf of the regional fire agencies, was awarded a FY2013 State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSGP) award for $255,000 for the purchase of three rigid hull inflatable boats with accompanying trailers, to be deployed regionally as part of the regional boat program. Award was made by Sacramento County OES who was designated as the pass-through agent for the local administration of the State Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSGP) which consists of federally awarded funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES). The first three boats have arrived and will be deployed to Metro Fire, Folsom Fire and Sacramento Fire as designated by the partnering agencies. The remaining two boats to complete the regional program were recently awarded through a FY2014 SHSGP award and will be deployed to Metro Fire and Cosumnes Fire.

Helping Locations Fight Wildfires During Drought
 
01:09
On Friday, March 27, 2015, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) transferred the first (5), of twenty-five additional Type-III Wildland Fire Engines to local fire departments. Cal OES Director Mark Ghilarducci was joined by Cal OES State Fire and Rescue Chief Kim Zagaris, Senator Richard Pan, as well as Representatives from Senator Nielsen, Assembleymember Cooley, and Assembleymember Gaines offices. In addition, Fire Chiefs and representatives from the assigned fire departments were present to receive the engines and return them to their stations where they will stay until called into action. These engines were ordered last year as part of the Governor’s concern with ongoing wildfires brought on by the drought to provide additional surge capability to the California Fire and Rescue Mutual Aid System. They were purchased as a result of the 2003 Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission and Governor Brown’s commitment to the ongoing drought and fire issues. The local fire departments that received the engines today were Consumes, Folsom City, Sacramento City, Sacramento Metropolitan, and West Sacramento. “These engines provide a critical asset in being able to provide immediate emergency response, saving lives and property and being there for the citizens of California when they need them, said Cal OES Director Ghilarducci.” Since there seems to be no end to our drought anytime soon, these types of events are drawing more attention from the media and the public. A press conference was held to highlight today’s transfer and many members of the media were present. “Having the necessary equipment, tools, and personnel to fight wildland fires is going to be important,” says Cal OES Fire Chief Zagaris “The drought is only making matters worse.” The Type III Wildland engines are equipped to respond and fight wildland fires, have additional capabilities to fight fires in buildings and other structures, and provide EMS response. Additionally, the engines are four wheel drive capable, have a four door cab, 500 gallon water tank, 500 gallon per minute pump, and all the necessary tools and equipment for a four person crew. Through contractual agreement between Cal OES and the local governments, the state permits use of the fire engines for mutual aid responses, local multiple alarm fires, temporary replacement for out of service engines, training and other local needs. In return, the assignee is required to dispatch the engine with required personnel to any emergency. “This is the best Mutual Aid System in the nation,” says Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Chief Mark Wells. “It not only works, but it build bonds between the agencies and regions involved in the program.” More information on the Cal OES Fire Engine Program is available at http://www.calema.ca.gov/FireandRescue/Pages/Apparatus-Overview.aspx More Information on the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission Action Plan is available at http://www.calema.ca.gov/fireandrescue/Pages/Fire-and-Rescue.aspx More Information on the State Fire Assistance Act Program is available at http://www.calema.ca.gov/FireandRescue/Pages/Surplus-Fire-Equipment.aspx

Urban Search and Rescue Firefighter Training - MOBEX Drill 2014
 
03:21
LOS ANGELES - On May 20 & 21, 2014, The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) will be testing the Urban Search & Rescue (US&R) System through a multi-team deployment exercise. The 2014 Western Region Multi-Task Force exercise, commonly referred to as the MOBEX (mobilization exercise) Drill, is a real time deployment exercise designed to test the readiness and effectiveness of the US&R response system within our State of California. Many of California’s elite Urban Search & Rescue teams and members have responded across the nation to catastrophic events such as, New York City for the 9-11 attacks, the Gulf coast for Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike, Floodings, Mudslides and Terrorist attacks. The US&R teams are comprised of two 70-member teams of men and women who are highly trained to conduct search and rescue operations in the most extreme conditions. The following agencies are participating in the 2014 MOBEX Drill: •CA-TF1 (Los Angeles Fire Department) •CA-TF2 (Los Angeles County Fire Department) •CA-TF5 (Orange County Fire Authority) •CA-TF7 (Sacramento Fire Department) •FEMA Incident Support Team (IST) •FEMA Main US&R Office Heads •Cal OES (California Office of Emergency Services) Chief Officers •LAFD Field Incident Management Team While this is not a public event, the 2014 MOBEX Drill will formally begin with a press conference on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. at the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Urban Search & Rescue Building, at Fire Station 88 in Sherman Oaks. Click HERE for the Media Plan. The drill will commence at approximately 10:00 a.m. with a 9-1-1 response to an earthquake scenario that has affected the Los Angeles region, taxing local resources. First responders and US&R personnel will be dispatched in real time with escalation procedures according to the State’s Master Mutual Aid System and FEMA’s emergency response procedures. Disaster exercises will be conducted throughout the day, starting at 11:00 am on May 20 and continue until 2:00 p.m. on May 21, 2014. This drill will take place at four separate locations requiring US&R technical rescue operations: 1.LAFD Fire Station 88 2.Universal Studios 3.Castaic Lake 4.Del Valle Training Center The 2014 MOBEX Drill is a great opportunity for FEMA US&R Task Forces to train and work together in a simulated catastrophe. We hope this exercise educates the public on disaster preparedness and how the Emergency First Responders perform during major disasters. We also hope this large scale team exercise can provide a sense of comfort to the public, knowing their firefighters are highly trained and well prepared to handle a catastrophic event. Are you and your family prepared? Continual and updated information regarding the 2014 MOBEX Drill can be found by clicking and following these Social Media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram.

Hanceville Unveils New Firefighting Super Tanker
 
04:12
Hanceville Unveils New Firefighting Super Tanker The City of Hanceville unveiled a new military vehicle driven, 6,000-gallon super tanker on Thursday. Under the guidance of Hanceville Mayor Kenneth Nail's shrewd utilization of the 1033 Program, his humongous firefighting apparatus is one of the largest of it's kind in northern Alabama. The 1033 Program - made possible by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 - is part of the U.S. Government's Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services (DLA) initiative. The goal is to transfer excess military equipment to civilian law enforcement agencies. The Hanceville Super Tanker will be an invaluable asset to the work of Hanceville Fire & Rescue as well as surrounding volunteer fire departments. The lack of fire hydrants and the frequently encountered challenge of low water pressure in the rural communities of southern Cullman County makes this 6,000-gallon water storage and pumping bemouth a real life and property saving asset. Mayor Nail acquired this piece of apparatus in Fort Polk, LA. The cost of acquisition to Hanceville taxpayers was zero. The city incurred only travel expenses and transportation costs (gasoline) in delivering this rig from Fort Polk to Hanceville. Mayor Nail plans to offer the Super Tanker to area fire departments in need of mutual aid during primary or difficult to fight residential and commercial fires. In this interview with Major Nail and Hanceville Fire Chief Rodger Green, you will get an up-close look at this new Super Tanker and get a detailed explanation of its features and benefits.

Simulated Smoke Search & Rescue Drill
 
05:09
The Blue Barn in East Berne provides the perfect environment for search and rescue training. A non toxic smoke machine is used to simulate a fire scene in which firefighters must navigate the building's interior without the ability to see, to find and rescue a "victim". The floor plan of the Blue Barn can be changed by rearranging the walls and window openings, thus making the layout impossible to memorize for future drills. This was a mutual aid drill with members of Onesquethaw Volunteer Fire Company East Berne and Berne Volunteer Fire companies.
Covington Fire Department worried about aging trucks
 
03:30
COVINGTON, Ky. (Joe Webb) -- Covington recently found itself without the firefighting equipment it needs. Both of Covington's ladder trucks were in the shop most of the day Wednesday, and firefighters had to rely on other cities. The trucks are important to fight major fires and rescue people on higher floors of buildings. One is back in service today, but there are concerns the aging fleet will leave the department relying on help more often. While Covington isn't exactly New York, it does have its share of tall buildings. On Wednesday night, firefighters made a run for smoke in the ascent. They didn't have a ladder truck to send, and had to depend on Newport for its truck. There was no emergency, but the situation raised some questions, and firefighters are concerned. Ladder trucks aren't critical everyday, but when they're needed they are really needed. Covington's 20-year-old Truck One is a workhorse, making about 100 runs a month. It was the city's only working ladder truck because the other was out for maintenance., but then Truck One died Wednesday afternoon, leaving Covington without a ladder truck. It's a scary thought for those living or working in one of Covington's taller buildings. Cassie Juniet and Chris Hille work on the ninth floor of Covington's Rivercenter. "I think they should have more trucks available to have a ladder that will reach us in case of an emergency," says Hille. "I think they need a backup plan for a second truck in case something like that ever does happen," says Juniet. City leaders say there is a back-up plan, and it worked Wednesday night when Covington crews were called to the smoke ascent. Newport dispatched its 911 truck to Covington. It's called mutual aid. But mutual aid is normally for big events when resources are strained, not to cover break downs. Covington firefighters say a new ladder truck would cost about $1 million. They're currently working to get an $800,000 federal grant for a new truck. The city's manager says if they get that grant, the city will find the rest of the money to buy a new ladder truck.

The San Diego Regional Fire Foundation "About Us"
 
11:33
Our mission is to strengthen the system of fire and emergency services in San Diego County. We will: - Provide fire and emergency service responders with funding for basic equipment, training and related materials, operational needs, station improvements, communication resources and planning to enable the delivery of top notch infield medical and rescue services and effective fire prevention and suppression services. - Increase public awareness of the agencies in San Diego County providing emergency medical and fire services, their needs and the role of the San Diego Fire Foundation in meeting those needs with the help of donors throughout our region. - Facilitate multi-jurisdictional coordination and cooperation between cities, fire departments, county agencies, and other foundations. The Foundation seeks strong and effective emergency services to provide quality fire protection and emergency services throughout San Diego County. It established this mission when first founded in 1989. The test of time proves that this mission is as relevant today as it was then. Much progress has been made during those years at every fire agency in San Diego County, but the nature of our environment and increases in population continue to create challenges in the delivery of top notch medical, rescue and fire services. The biggest improvements have been in the: 1. Multi-jurisdictional coordination and cooperation with joint dispatch centers and automatic mutual aid with the closest unit responding without regard to jurisdictional boundaries; and - 2. Fire apparatus and fire and medical equipment

Tactical Consideration: Your Workplace Has Changed: You Need to Evolve
 
01:26
Structure fires have changed over time. Forty-plus years ago, structures were built using old growth, full-thickness lumber, and the furnishings inside were made of mostly natural fibers. This made for a fire environment that progressed slowly toward flashover. Compared to today’s fires, firefighters typically had time to do a search for victims, find the seat of the fire and extinguish the blaze before the fire’s intensity overcame the firefighters’ ability to control the environment. The firefighting tactics employed by a previous generation of firefighters were based upon a built environment and the firefighting and safety equipment they had available to them. Today’s firefighters are faced with a different fire problem. The modern fire environment consists of structures constructed of lightweight building materials, open floor plans, double-pane windows and furnishings constructed of materials capable of releasing enough heat energy to flash over a room in seven minutes or less. Fire conditions that increase in intensity at these speeds require more knowledge of fire behavior and fire dynamics. This series of videos will bring you tactical considerations from firefighter research and will feature members of the UL FSRI team and Advisory Board. A Tactical Consideration is an evidence based concept for the fire service to consider implementing into their department to enhance efficiency, effectiveness, and increase knowledge to accomplish their mission. With all of the measurements made during UL FSRI experiments as well as the vast experience of our project technical panels, several consistent themes have emerged that may be helpful to the fire service. Each of these themes is packaged as a tactical consideration with supporting text and visuals. The application of tactical considerations depends upon many factors such as: building structure and geometry capabilities and resources available to the first responding fire department availability of mutual aid There is no silver bullet tactic for structure fires and these considerations are meant to increase the knowledge of the fire service and to be incorporated into training and procedures, if deemed applicable.

2017-06-21 Firefighter Recruit Class Graduates from Department of Fire Services’ Springfield Campus
 
03:04
From the DFS Press Release: SPRINGFIELD –State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey and Massachusetts Firefighting Academy Deputy Director Joseph Klucznik announced the graduation of the fourth class to complete the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy’s fifty-day Career Recruit Firefighting Training Program at the new Springfield campus on June 21, 2017. “Today is an exciting day to see these recruits complete their training at this new facility,” said State Fire Marshal Ostroskey. “This rigorous professional training provides our newest fire-fighters with the basic skills to perform their jobs effectively and safely,” said Ostroskey. “Being able to provide training closer to where western Massachusetts fire-fighters live and work has long been a goal of the Department of Fire Services and the fire service leadership,” he added. The Massachusetts Firefighting Academy (MFA), a division of the Department of Fire Services, offers this program, tuition-free. This is the fourth Career Recruit Firefighting Training Program to be held at the Department of Fire Services’ Springfield campus. The state bought the former Springfield Fire Training Center from the city and in 2015 completed a $13.4 million renovation and construction project on the 6-acre complex. 21 Graduates from 8 Fire Departments The 21 graduates, two women and 19 men, represent the eight fire departments of: Chicopee, Easthampton, Greenfield, Ludlow, Northampton, Springfield, West Springfield, and Westfield. Guest Speaker Greenfield Fire Chief Robert Strahan The guest speaker at the graduation was Greenfield Fire Chief Robert Strahan, a 25-year member of the fire service, twenty with the Greenfield Fire Department. He has been chief since 2013. He has also been the city’s Emergency Management Director since 2005 and is chairman of the Franklin County Regional Emergency Planning Committee. Chief Strahan is a credentialed fire chief and holds many other fire board certifications. He serves as the District 9 Task Force Mutual Aid Coordinator, on the Hazardous Materials Team District 4 Oversight Board, and Operations Section Chief for the Northwestern Massachusetts Incident Management Team that deployed to New York City for Hurricane Sandy and responded to the tornados in Hampden County. He spoke about how valuable the training firefighters receive at the Fire Academy is at fire scenes in Franklin County where they so often rely upon mutual aid. Today’s Firefighters Do Far More than Fight Fires Today’s firefighters do far more than fight fires. They are the first ones called to respond to chemical and environmental emergencies, ranging from the suspected presence of carbon monoxide to a gas leak. They may be called to rescue a child who has fallen through the ice or who has locked himself in a bathroom. They rescue people from stalled elevators and those who are trapped in vehicle crashes. They test and maintain their equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), hydrants, hoses, power tools, and apparatus. At the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy they learn all these skills and more from certified fire instructors who are also experienced firefighters. Students learn all the basic skills they need to respond to fires and to contain and control them. They are also given training in public fire education, hazardous material incident mitigation, flammable liquids, stress management, confined space rescue techniques, and rappelling. The intensive, nine-week program for municipal firefighters involves classroom instruction, physical fitness training, firefighter skills training, and live firefighting practice. Basic Firefighter Skills Students receive classroom training in all basic firefighter skills. They practice first under non-fire conditions and then during controlled fire conditions. To graduate, students must demonstrate proficiency in life safety, search and rescue, ladder operations, water supply, pump operation, and fire attack. Fire attack operations range from mailbox fires to multiple-floor or multiple-room structural fires. Upon successful completion of the Recruit Program all students have met national standards of National Fire Protection Association 1001 and are certified to the level of Firefighter I and II, and Hazardous Materials First Responder Operational Level by the Massachusetts Fire Training Council, which is accredited by the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications.

The first crews responding made a fast attack and contained the bulk of the fire to the garage by quickly cutting off the fire's advance through the breezeway between the garage and the house. This quick action by Westlake's Squad 42 prevented the fire from extending into the house and beyond. If you look to the right of the screen just above the firefighter behind the fence (Timestamp 0:14 - 0:16) you can see where crews opened up the breezeway with pike poles and cut off the fire's advance so they could focus on extinguishing the garage without risk of the fire extending. Many houses with detached garages in the Katy area were built with breezeways that may not have firebreaks that would prevent or at least slow the fire's progress into the home. If you have this type of construction or know somebody who does please check to see that there are firebreaks in place. If you are unsure or would like some assistance, we check this as well as a number of other potential fire hazards as part of our FREE Home Safety Survey program. You can learn more about this program and even schedule an appointment for your own survey on our website at http://www.hcesd48.org/home-safety Thank you to our great mutual aid partners: Westlake Volunteer Fire Department, Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department, Katy Fire Department, Houston Fire Department, and Harris County Fire Marshal #TeamWork

Exercise Combined Strength - Delburne Mock Disaster - May 2016 - Red Deer County Protective Services
 
02:34
www.rdcounty.ca There was a flurry of activity in The Village of Delburne on Sat May 7 as emergency coordination and response was put to the test in “Exercise Combined Strength”. A village-wide mock tornado disaster pushed the area’s emergency management and protective services teams to activate an Emergency Coordination Centre and Reception Centre…and respond to major mock emergency scenarios. An old schoolbus was safely flipped on its side at the Delburne Dry Dump, and local teen volunteers played the roles of injured or missing students. Each volunteer was given a card designating their specific levels of injury and mobility. Initial response came from Delburne Fire Services, with mutual aid from Red Deer County’s Fire Services, Technical Rescue Task Force, and Patrol Services, as well as the RCMP. The scenario required bus stabilization, triaging, extrication, heavy lifting of the bus to remove a pinned mannequin, casualty management, search and rescue of students who walked away from the scene, scene security, information management with the Emergency Coordination Centre, and management of spontaneous mock volunteers, parents, and media. A mock collapsed structure came into play at the Delburne Curling Rink. Student volunteers, pretending to be participants in a Pickleball Tournament at the Curling Rink, were positioned in an intricately built collapsed structure that included a leaning south wall, single door access, and multi-level ceiling collapse with trapped students. Delburne Fire Services was urgently dispatched, with Red Deer County Technical Rescue soon being called upon to provide mutual aid. Using various rescue tools, the Tech Rescue Task Force assessed structures, shored up external and internal walls, breached walls, monitored air quality which revealed a mock gas leak, and accessed, managed, and removed casualties. A second unstable collapsed structure scenario later took place at the edge of Delburne, which required the Tech Rescue Task Force to rescue a trapped mannequin inside. “Exercise Combined Strength” included a mock village-wide power outage, with multiple residences and stores damaged due to tornado. The ECC called for Emergency Social Services to be carried out, which saw a mock Reception Centre activated at the Delburne Community Hall, with the help of Red Cross. Village evacuees, as portrayed by the exercise participants, went through the registration process at the Reception Centre. As would be the case in an actual disaster, many partners were involved: Village of Delburne staff & Council, Fire Services, & EMS, were joined by Red Deer County Emergency Services, Fire Services, Technical Rescue Task Force, & Patrol Services, as well as the RCMP, Alberta Health Services, Red Cross, and representatives from neighbouring municipalities. Alberta Emergency Management Agency representatives oversaw the exercise and provided insight. Students from NAIT emergency management studies were on hand to observe the exercise. Exercise Combined Strength provided a valuable emergency training opportunity, and re-enforced regional mutual aid partnerships.

Albany Budget Plan Would Close Fire Ladder Company
 
02:37
ALBANY -- There is controversy days after Albany's mayor rolled out the city's budget plan. The issue is over how the city plans to meet roughly $176 million in demands. ‚“When we get [an] alarm of fire we dispatch three engine companies, two ladder companies, the heavy rescue and a paramedic rig and the battalion chief,‚ Albany Fire Chief Warren Abriel said.But firefighters could soon be dealing with a smaller pool of apparatus. The budget looks to close Ladder No. 1, which Mayor Kathy Sheehan says will save the city $1.2 million in overtime costs without laying anyone off. Abriel says the change will not necessarily affect response time but he admits it may require Albany to ask for more mutual aid.‚“We wouldn't have the buffer with the extra ladder truck,‚ Abriel said.Still, Abriel says it's the best option the department has in terms of closing a $1.3 million budget gap.‚“Not any chief or any city official would want to take a company out of service,‚ Abriel said. ‚“This was the situation where we're looking for the least amount of negative impact and due to the response territory being smaller we feel, I feel, that this is going to be the one that we might have to close."But members of the local firefighter union say not so fast.‚“Instead of responding to 2,500 calls Engine 5 would be responsible for all 5,000 calls and that's just an impossibility,‚ Firefighter Brian Wolfgang said. ‚“We feel there are other ways to balance the budget."Including, Wolfgang says, changing the way the city insures its employees. "We wanted to model an insurance plan after the city of Rochester. Basically streamline all of the city's insurance. It saved multiple millions of dollars [in Rochester,]" Wolfgang said.Sheehan says streamlining insurance is a good idea but it's not a quick enough fix for the looming money issues Albany is facing. "We always welcome the opportunity to talk with our workforce about how we can achieve cost savings. But for the 2015 budget that we have to balance we still have $12 million that were filling with one-time revenue," Sheehan said. Sheehan says they are also looking at changing the number of apparatus that respond to medical calls. Right now two vehicles usually respond to medical emergencies but Sheehan says the medical director only suggests one. If that change goes into affect Sheehan said it could cut down 3,400 responses.
