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.

Local 1014 Friday update - July 13, 2018

As many of you know, the Los Angeles County Fire Department in addition to serving the 1 million residents of the unincorporated communities of Los Angeles County also contracts with nearly 60 cities within Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles region to provide Fire/Rescue/EMS services to over 3 million residents. While we do not seek out city contracts, when we have labor and management support within a city, we welcome cities and their Firefighters into the County family.

On July 10, the Redondo Beach City Council voted 4-1 to request a feasibility study and.....https://tinyurl.com/y75z4epa

Very true

Local 3371 Hermosa Beach supports RBFA in whatever direction they decide to pursue. LACo Fire district and 1014 were the right answer to our many limitations in Hermosa Beach. I hope our brothers and sisters in Redondo Beach find a solution that will provide them the stability and support they deserve. Good luck boys, we are here if you need anything. Sincerely, Aaron Marks (Former) President HBFA - Local 3371

Victory! Fire Fighter Cancer Registry Act Signed Into Law
Culminating more than two years of intense lobbying and hard work by the IAFF and its leadership, the President has signed the Firefighter Cancer Registry Act of 2018 (H.R. 931) into law. With this final action, the federal government takes the first steps towards establishing a one-of-a-kind national cancer registry specifically for fire fighters.

With the President’s signature, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is now directed to undertake the collection of detailed data on the occurrence of cancer in fire fighters. The data will provide scientists with specialized information needed to research the relationship between the disease and the job, which will help strengthen our understanding of the link between firefighting and cancer and potentially lead to better prevention and safety protocols.

The bill, introduced in the House by Representatives Chris Collins (R-NY) and Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), and in the Senate by Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), passed the House unanimously in June for the second time after the Senate made slight modifications to the bill. H.R. 931 first passed the House last September.

This legislative victory was only possible with the dedication and hard work of IAFF members and a bipartisan cadre of elected federal officials. “I sincerely thank Representatives Collins and Pascrell, along with Senators Murkowski and Menendez, for working with the IAFF to pass the Firefighter Cancer Registry Act. Their superior leadership on this legislation has been invaluable. I also thank the entire House and Senate for their unanimous votes necessary to deliver this legislation to the president’s desk for his signature,” says General President Harold Schaitberger. “The strength of the vote in each chamber demonstrates the importance of this legislation and the need to better understand cancer within the fire service.”

The bill requires the Trump administration partner with national fire service organizations, including the IAFF, to build out the registry. As this process begins, we will be working closely with the Centers for Disease Control to ensure the registry well represents our members and their interests.

Signed by President Trump.....the Donald Trump? Outstanding

Wow!!

Excellent! The lives of our emergency response personnel matter. #alllivesmatter

Good decision no brainer

That’s really cool. You guys definitely deserve it. And it so refreshing to hear that our elected government officials worked together from both sides to make this happen. Congrats.

Wow. Things are moving forward to keep us healthy and safe. Great moment.

That idiot Trump! What was he thinking? Maybe he was influenced by that “dirty” campaign money, or MAYBE he is just a blue collar loving, compassionate American. I’ll choose the latter.

This is wonderful news 🙏🏻 GODSPEED

Thank you President Trump for always supporting our men and women in Uniform 👨‍🚒👩🏾‍🚒👮‍♂️👮‍♀️🚒🚑🇺🇸

Congrats. Trump supports our public safety personnel. Maybe the IAFF can continue the work on other firefighter 👩‍🚒 issues. 👍🚒🇺🇸

Glad to see that both sides of the aisle came together for a worthy bill

On behalf of your Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014 Executive Board, we would like to wish you and your families a safe and healthy Fourth of July!

Each year, on Independence Day, we remember the day our country was born and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. We also remember the courageous men and women that have shaped our country’s growth and protected our safety since that historic day on July 4, 1776. As you celebrate our nation’s freedom, please take a moment to reflect on those serving in the United States Military who are standing a post both at home and abroad to ensure we continue to be a free nation.

As you enjoy your families, friends and fireworks, please remember that summer is a busy time of year for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. We have to be ready to answer the call when the phone rings. This holiday (and every day) do not drink and drive. Drink responsibly!
