Had a detached garage fire today. Overall crew were busy city wide. Fire danger remains high. One of the video clips courtesy of @911_images You can make out in the darkness @rg.1985 checking for hot spots on the exposure.
Today these are the tools of the trade. While I’m working in house and on my assigned rig but I’m working with the A shift. #Fire ground jobs are performed based on what seat you are ridding in. The #truck saw #firefighter and AO are responsible for #ventilation . If you are considering a career in the fire service I hope you consider @sacramento_fire Every rig here carries 4 people , so there are several jobs you can perform based on what seat you are riding that day. You may also want to consider the @sacfirereserves this program is a great way to get your foot in the door. #laddertruck
#repost @southernmarinfire You might see strike teams of #engines through out our region. Due to #redflag conditions the region is up staffing with representatives of multiple agencies all this in an effort to be prepared should a fire break out. Please use extra caution. Be #Fireready
Another rotation is the books. Got to see #Engine 56 crews at a small garage #fire More often than not people think these tanks are filled with oxygen. They are NOT. They are filled with compressed air. They are called Self Contained Breathing Apparatus or SCBA. #firefighter#firefighting @scottsafetyemea
Today marks one year of when my life as a rescue worker changed forever. I always knew when I joined the #fireservice in 1995 that I would someday be going back home to #MexicoCity and help due to an #earthquake . When I was 8 the images of 1985 were something that stuck with me. When the earthquake hit last year for a brief moment it became personal. Once it was established all my family was accounted for my drive to go help did not stop. Packed a backpack and I was at the epicenter of things within the first 36hrs. I was humbled and inspired by what I saw and experienced. So many others just like me had jumped into action. Going on my own was something I will never forget and not a day goes by I don’t think of it. I hope this inspires others to do the same when their time to help comes up. Don’t just watch stuff develop. Get involved do something. #firefighter#rescue
He won’t like it but here it goes. This guy gets public information specially the importance and power of #socialmedia I had the privilege of meeting him and his team about 4 years ago. #firefighter#firecaptain#pio
Today’s opportunity to work extra hours came courtesy of #Engine 8. Located near #Sacramentostate this house protects what’s know as #Riverpark and parts of #eastsacramento Its also a #boat house and houses Medic8 as well. In good #firefighter fashion as soon as I walked in the door I was greeted with hey good to see you. BTW you are cooking.
