Captain Dave Rosa’s Celebration of Life/Memorial services
On behalf of Local 372 President Rex Pritchard:

“The support of the IAFF and the CPF has been overwhelming and so appreciative. The support of local’s from across the nation has been equally amazing and much appreciated. On behalf of the Local 372 Board of Directors, I would like to invite all sworn fire fighters to join us in celebrating the life of our fallen Brother, Captain David Rosa, at our union hall immediately after the ceremony. Our union hall is located at 2201 Cherry (cross street is Hill). Parking for members who are attending on fire engines will be on Cherry Street south of the union hall and on Hill Street. Members who are in personal vehicles will be able to park in parking lots just west of the union hall and at the neighboring elementary schools. Local 372 will have food and drink for all those attending and a guest book for locals to sign and offer condolences that we will give to the family”.

“This has hit our membership extremely hard and we truly appreciate all the support, especially the Rosa family. The Rosa family told me that they thought the fire family was limited to the Long Beach Fire Department / IAFF Local 372 and didn’t realize that the fire family is nationwide. We ask that union leadership spread the word through email, phone calls, texts, etc. We ask that people do not post on social media, as we want this strictly for our IAFF brothers and sisters.”

Five years ago today…

On June 30, 2013, the wind-whipped Yarnell Hill wildfire turned suddenly and killed 19 members of Prescott’s Granite Mountain Hotshots as they moved to re-engage the inferno, 30 miles south of Prescott.

The fire raged into Yarnell, a community of about 650 people, destroying more than 120 homes. In all, the blaze consumed 8,400 acres before firefighters at last contained it on July 10 2013.

Kevin Woyjeck, oldest son of our brother Captain Joe Woyjeck, was a member of the Granite Mountain Hotshot crew who was one of the 19 that perished that day.

We ask all our members today to take a moment and remember Kevin and his crew. Today will be a difficult day for Kevin’s family as well as the families of all the fallen members of the Granite Mountain Hot Shot Crew

The fallen firefighters, our IAFF brothers are:

Kevin Woyjeck, 21 Andrew Ashcraft, 29 Robert Caldwell, 23
Travis Carter, 31 Dustin Deford, 24 Christopher MacKenzie, 30
Eric Marsh, 43 Grant McKee, 21 Sean Misner, 26
Scott Norris, 28 Wade Parker, 22 John Percin, 24
Anthony Rose, 23 Jesse Steed, 36 Joe Thurston, 32
Travis Turbyfill, 27 William Warneke, 25 Clayton Whitted, 28
Garret Zuppiger, 27

Today in their honor from 10 AM to 2 PM the Los Angeles County Firefighters Museum located at 16400 Bellfower Blvd., Bellflowerwill be opening their doors and welcome everyone to visit, share stories and morn the loss of these 19 heroes.

ALL are welcome.

Why is fill the boot only exclusively for one disease?

Did you know more than 23 million Americans age 18 and older have never had an eye exam? The reason: Most say they don’t think they have an eye problem. In fact, many eye diseases don’t show symptoms in their early stages, so without an eye exam, they can’t know.

Remember to:
--Wear sunglasses that block out 99 -100% of UVA/UVB rays.
-Know your family’s eye health history.
-Use protective eyewear during sports and other recreational activities.
-Get a comprehensive dilated eye exam.

Schedule your eye exam, through the Local 1014 Health Plan's vision provider VSP Vision Care TODAY at vsp.com.

Additionally, Local 1014's SunCare plan saves your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. Local 1014 has TWO $300 allowances per year for non-prescription sunglasses.

The Local 1014 Executive Board was pleased to attend the 2019 Contract Cities Conference last week. In partnership with Los Angeles County Fire Department Chief Daryl Osby and his staff, we ensured that the public safety needs of #LACounty and our 59 contract cities are aligned.

Our LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger and Supervisor Janice Hahn were in attendance as well as over 130 City Council members from our 59 #LACOFD contracts cities. During the conference, the Supervisors held a panel discussion on our 2020 efforts to equip first responders and our contract cities with increased fire resources as we face rising call loads and a yearlong wildfire season.

Special thank you to CA State Senator Susan Rubio, Senator Anthony Portantino and Assemblywoman Blanca E. Rubio who discussed strengthening state and local government relationships to secure funding for our fire resources and disaster aid needs.
