2017 IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

2017 IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial

As the Local 1014 Executive Board and myself prepare to honor our fallen brother, Firefighter John Eric Schmidt, in Colorado Springs at the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial, I ask all to reflect and remember ALL of the fallen both in Los Angele County and across the nation.

The 2017 IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial service will be broadcast live via streaming video or here https://livestream.com/KOAA/live on Saturday, September 16. The ceremony in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which officially begins at 11:00 a.m. (Mountain Time), will honor 196 IAFF members who died in the line of duty and were reported to the IAFF in the last year.

The Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial honors more than 7,500 IAFF members who have died in the line of duty since 1918. The names include those who died on the job, as well as the alarming number who succumbed to chronic illnesses linked to the fire service such as heart disease and cancer.

The IAFF and Colorado Springs Local 5 are committed to making the 2017 ceremony an uplifting experience for the families, friends and loved ones that celebrates the lives, dedication and accomplishments of our fallen brothers and sisters.

On behalf of the Local 1014 Executive Board, thank you for your commitment each and every day protecting our communities. Please keep our fallen brothers and sisters who have made the ultimate sacrifice in your thoughts and prayers. Always remembered, never forgotten.

In Solidarity,

Dave Gillotte, President
Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014


The 196 names of our brothers and sisters added to the walls this year...

911 - WE SHALL NEVER FORGET!

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

Patriot Day

Tuesday September 11, 2001 is a day that we shall never forget (click here for a time line of events). Think back....where were you and what were you doing at 0845 EDT on that day? On a call? finishing line up at the station? PT? taking your kids to school? at the gym? Just like our FDNY brothers and sisters. Just another normal day that was about to become anything but normal. 16 years ago....

Local 1014 Members were either at home with their families or serving Los Angeles County citizens when terror struck our hearts and the hearts and souls of all Americans.

The world watched in horror while the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon in D.C, and a field in Shanksville Pennsylvania became the vision of terror on and in our homeland.

On that morning Americans stood strong and fought with incredible courage and wrapped in red white and blue, we all rose to the high standards that America was built on.

Firefighters and Paramedics who responded to the Pentagon, Shanksville PA, and the World Trade Center, which took 343 (click here for information) of our bravest, (and continues to take lives still today - click here) became Americas' symbol of hope and honor and resilience during this time of tragedy.

We all take time today to stay true to our commitment... "We Shall Never Forget".  As you move through your day, take time to remember and honor all those who served and gave all including our great Military personnel in addition to our Firefighters.

Local 1014 Members and all of the people who make up the Los Angeles County Fire Department are the proudest and most honorably serving members in the Country and it is with great pride that we stand together to honor our Country and all who serve.  May God bless us all and our Country.

Labor Day and Help for Hurricane Harvey victims

Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

Representing over 3200 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers,
Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

Local 1014 Brothers and Sisters:

As we celebrate this Labor Day with our friends and families, we are reminded of the many accomplishments of the Labor Movement throughout the years. At the core of the Labor Movement is the dedication we have to each other. Right now, our Brothers and Sisters in Texas need our help. 

Local 1014 members that make up LA County CATF-2 Swift Water Team has been deployed to assist with rescues in the Houston area and have made more than 10 rescues since being deployed since August 27. 

We have all seen the news coverage of Hurricane Harvey which has brought torrential rain, devastating winds and widespread flooding throughout Texas. While thousands of Texas Firefighters’ homes are in the direct path of Hurricane Harvey, they continue working around the clock, rescuing their fellow Texans and Houstonians, knowing that their own homes are likely under water. 

When they return to their homes, these Firefighters and their families will need our help to get back on their feet and rebuild their lives.

That is why Local 1014 will be accepting donations of clothing, shoes, socks, toiletries, and other vital needs for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. All donations will be sent directly to the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association, Local 341. 

Please drop off all donations at Local 1014 Headquarters located at:
3460 Fletcher Ave. El Monte 91731 (click for map)

The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and President Harold Schaitberger have been on the ground providing direct support to Firefighters in the disaster zone. The IAFF Team has set up two disaster relief operations centers in Houston and southeast Texas near Louisiana. These centers provide direct financial relief, emergency medical screenings, vaccines, exposure monitoring and behavioral health services to those on the frontlines of this disaster.

As Local 1014 has done during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, we will be sending Local 1014 PEERS and Behavioral Health Teams and Chaplains to the affected areas to assist with the behavioral health needs of Firefighters and their families. Local 1014 will also be donating $1,000 to the IAFF Disaster Relief Fund. California Professional Firefighters (CPF) has also pledged to donate $10,000 toward the relief effort. 

Now we need you to do your part to ensure funds are available to assist our fellow union members in both Texas and Louisiana whose homes have been devastated by flooding while they've remained on the frontlines, rescuing thousands of people in the storm's path.

Because of the magnitude of this hurricane, the recovery and rebuilding process will be ongoing for some time. I am asking you to have their backs by making sure money is there to assist our fellow IAFF members now and in the future as they begin to rebuild their lives. 

Click below to donate to the IAFF Disaster Relief Fund for our Brothers and Sisters in Houston. 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Los Angeles County Firefighters Local 1014, we wish you and your family a safe and healthy Labor Day and we thank you for your generosity to our fellow Firefighters in Texas. 

In Solidarity,

Dave Gillotte, President
LA County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014
