HAVE A GREAT MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

Local 1014 has had quite a busy last few months to say the least.

As we all know by now, early Thursday morning at a commercial building fire one of our companies experienced a roof collapse that sent them through the building to the floor below. Other companies were just exiting the building when the failure of the roof happened. Fortunately, they exited without difficulties and were in position to return to the interior immediately to affect rescues for our brothers.

Three members of the crew were treated, transported and released. One member is still in the hospital. He will have a long healing period and he will need his brothers and sisters help. Stay tuned for more details on how you can help our brother.

Please keep our member and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

As we rest over this weekend, we must take time to remember those who have sacrificed so much to protect our way of life as Americans. Please join the entire Local 1014 Executive Board as we pause this weekend to reflect and remember all of the military personnel who have served or are serving our great Country. In all branches of service, Americans have proudly sacrificed so much to make America the greatest Country in the world. We proudly protect and serve the citizens within our great Country it is important to remember those who protect us and those who have given their all so that we may prosper and have the freedoms we enjoy.

These individuals come from all walks of life. As we set out to enjoy this long three day weekend, take time to watch the tributes. Look at a waving American Flag as you roll down the road. Don't let the sacrifices that are represented pass through you easily this weekend. Let the history of this Country and the memories of those who have served and given their all cause you to slow down and deeply reflect and pay your respects, pay our respects.

We would also like to once again take a moment to remind our membership to Drink Responsibly this weekend. This weekend traditionally sees a lot of travel and with that a high level of alcohol related accidents. Don’t let yourself be one of those individuals who finds themselves in trouble. Limit your drinking! If you make a mistake and have too much to drink, think you might have impairment from drinking, or if you know you will be having a few and be over the limit, DON'T DRIVE. Get a room. Get a cab. Get a driver.

Please also make the effort to put away the phone, food and any other distractions that impair your driving. Keep you and your family safe and sound. Thank you to all members who will be on the line this weekend protecting and serving our citizens in Los Angeles County.

Local 1014 Salutes all those who have served and we remember your sacrifice.

Sincerely,

Your Local 1014 Executive Board

Task Force Returns

This past week we have seen a few things that remind us of what makes our Fire Department so great. The members of USA-2 returned after weeks in Nepal from helping citizens in their time of great need.

The members of USA-2 returned after weeks in Nepal helping citizens in their time of great need.

On April 25, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake erupted approximately 85 miles east of the capital, Kathmandu, killing more than 8,000 people and destroying a half-million homes nationwide. Three weeks later the country was struck again by a 7.3-magnitude tremor near Mount Everest that killed more than 100 people and triggered fresh landslides.

Our members participated in rescues as well as building assessment for structural integrity and many other functions that they are trained to do. t is amazing to all of us how even though they could not get home initially due to circumstances beyond anybody’s control, they immediately went into action, deployed and began helping the citizens of Nepal when the second earthquake hit.

They returned home to a hero's welcome and now are taking a much deserved rest after long days of work and many hours of travel to get home.

Dodgers FF Appreciation


Los Angeles County Memorial event

The annual Los Angeles County Firefighter memorial was held on May 13th at the LA County Fire Department HQ.  We honored those who have fallen and have given all for the citizens of Los Angeles County.  This year as usual the Chaplains, Honor Guard, PIO, LA County Fire Pipes and Drums as well as everyone else involved did an amazing job honoring those whose names were already on the wall and also those whose names were added this year. The event concluded with a Local 1014 sponsored BBQ for the all the attendees.


Thank you to the Camp personnel and the cooks Brothers Glenn Goulet and Bob Haskell. In the last few years these members along with members of the Memorial Management team have done an incredible job honoring those members who lost their lives, as well as their families and our Department. Thank you for all your selflessness.

Added to the wall this year were: James F. Horton, Janet L. Chatelain, John D. Mazzocco and Darrell Rice.

When at LAO please take a minute and stop by the wall to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. They will never be forgotten.

May is Mental Health Month


Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental health condition. During the month of May, The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and the rest of the country are bringing awareness to mental illness. Each year we fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Every year, the movement grows stronger. In 2013, President Obama proclaimed May as National Mental Health Awareness Month and brought the issue of mental health to the forefront of our nation’s thoughts.

We believe that these issues are important to address year round, but highlighting these issues during May provides a time for people to come together and display the passion and strength of those working to improve the lives of the tens of millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

This year's May is Mental Health Month Campaign and Toolkit will use the theme B4Stage4 and will focus on how people can address their mental health early, rather than at "Stage 4" - when symptoms are more severe, and recovery a longer process.

2015 Los Angeles County Firefighter Memorial

“WE SHALL NOT FORGET”

WEDNESDAY May 13th, 2015, 1000 am

ANNUAL LA COUNTY FIREFIGHTERS MEMORIAL SERVICE

LAO HEADQUARTERS AT OUR MEMORIAL SITE

LOCAL 1014 BBQ TO FOLLOW

Sisters and Brothers,

This is a reminder to take time Wednesday the 13th and “Never Forget” our very own Los Angeles County Firefighter Brothers and Sisters who gave all and are forever remembered on our beautiful granite Memorial Wall at LAO.

Break out your Class A or department long sleeve uniform and make time to get to LAO to create a sea of blue along with the LAO uniformed and non-uniformed personnel to support the family members who will be in attendance to remember.

We have seen many tragedies and triumphs in our Department and our Unions history, and we have traveled far and wide throughout the Country to Honor FDNY’s fallen, Boston, Chicago, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Canada, Kansas, Arizona and more. We have formed up and marched and paid our respects with pride as if the fallen Brothers and Sisters were our very own.

Well, Wednesday the 13th is our very own; our Brothers and Sisters from engines, trucks, air squads, PM squads and hospital beds who have given.  While all have given some, some have given all. Those are the folks on OUR Memorial Wall.

Please join Union President Dave Gillotte and Fire Chief Daryl Osby representing Labor and Management along with members of our great Department to shore up and let the families of our own fallen know that “We shall never forget”.  Local 1014 will be hosting an after ceremony BBQ for camaraderie and fellowship and all are invited.

  • This year the names of James F. Horton, Janet L. Chatelain, John D. Mazzocco and Darrell Rice will be added to the wall.
  • The Los County Firefighters Pipes and Drums will be performing.
  • A new addition this year will be the Men of Fire Motorcycle Club in their first Los Angeles County Memorial Ride.  Click here for details.

Thank you advance for your attendance and helping to do the right thing….take a day to remember,

Dave Gillotte and the Local 1014 Executive Board
