A past post by @culvercityfirefighters reminds us the importance of not losing focus on the #PIO side of your platforms. It’s one thing to do creative posts it’s another to broadcast live during a major event. Be prepared. PIO #training is very important. #fireservice
BREAKINGNEWS: #Rescue crews searching the #SacramentoRiver at Paintersville Bridge in the #Delta community of #Courtland . The multi agency effort appears to be directly below the bridge. The incident started shortly after 8AM this morning. #traffic is backing up along HWY160 just North of the bridge. #firefighters @cosumnesfire #courtlandfire @chp_valleydivision @dartsacramento @kcranews @cbssacramento @kfbk_news @vivianapaeztv #noticias @susannagonzaleztv
#repost @sacareaff522 What is a #fire type call? And why is it important to mitigate such incidents as quick as possible? Every year SFD responds to over 3000 fire type calls. These fires pose several risks to the community from the obvious which is the fire spreading to injuring a civilian due to the toxic smoke produced. Currently the department is operating with 30 year old staffing. Response times are excessive in certain areas such as @jeff4sacramento district and @mayor_steinberg wants to talk about exploring the possibility of cutting staffing and lowering the level of service provided by dual role ambulances. All this as the city is experiencing explosive growth. This 4th of July our members stand ready to serve and protect. Be FIRE READY. #sacramento#publicsafety
#repost @southernmarinfire ICYMI: Quick work by crews stopped a fire from spreading and causing additional damage to a #millvalley#home this past week. The fire which started due to an electrical issue was kept from causing any major damage. Preserving life is our members priority followed by protecting property and the environment. The million dollar plus home only sustained damages in the thousands not tens of thousands or worse. #firefighters#publicsafety#northbay
Today it’s all about #union support. My agency like many of you out there is always under attack. Another message I pushed out this AM for my local. #repost @sacareaff522 Our members work hard to ensure your safety. Supporting public safety needs of the community should be a top priority. As if stagnant staffing levels and record breaking call volumes were not bad enough , some in city council are calling for staffing cuts and a decreased level of service by replacing current dual role #fire#medics . Now is the time to invest in our public safety infrastructure and the members that provide said service. A report requested by The City of #Sacramento showed that up to 4 additional stations are needed not staffing cuts. Dual role medics like the one seen here are a vital part of achieving all risk service. In fact this exact medic has had to engage in firefighting activities multiple times. One of them resulting in a person being pulled out of a burning building when the medics switched over to firefighting to support the rescue operations.The same could be said about many of the medics in the city. Let your elected officials know that you support all risk service.
Some safety messaging I pushed out for my union. Get involved with your #union help protect our profession. #repost @sacareaff522 #redflag conditions are expected over the next few days. A #fire can and will spread quickly. You do not need to live in the #mountains and or #forest to be affected by these extreme fire conditions. This recent fire in South #Sacramento#medowview area reminds us just how quickly multiple #homes can become involved in fire. It also shows us the importance of a quick and aggressive fire attack. This day #firefighters saved multiple homes. Sacramento Fire rigs are staffed with 4 people for a reason. That day like many others it made the difference. Be FIRE READY. Report any sign of smoke of fire immediately. #weather @fox40news
Hopefully this is a wake up call to all those not leveraging your union pages. Now is not the time to be funny or clever with your Social Media posts. It’s about informing the public, members and protecting our profession. Post with a purpose. Stop supporting sites that are actually hurting our messaging. Doing videos mocking how #medics act or how #truckies do this or #engine folks do that have to stop. It’s not going to be funny when they slash our pension and cut our staffing. And if you think those posts don’t hurt us think again. Get your members involved inform them and educate them as to the importance of being in the union. #firefighter#fireservice#iaff @lima_time1 @iaff1918
