Los Angeles County Firefighters IAFF Local 1014

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

This holiday weekend started with Good Friday through Easter Sunday. Many of our members will be taking time to reflect and remember sacrifice and give pause for all that we have and why.  There will be everything from solemn services to Easter Egg Hunts, BBQ's and Family time.  Some of us will be at the Stations taking care of others all weekend.

Local 1014 would like to ask all of our members to take a moment this weekend, faithful or not, to reflect and consider how fortunate we are to be American and to be the part of the workforce that makes up the LA County Fire Fighters.  We work hard to be a premier team of Professional Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Forestry, Dispatchers, Heavy Equipment, Pilots, Health Haz-Matters, FSA, Fire Prevention and Fire Personnel in the business and we should be humble and proud of our work and all those who serve.

We also ask that you mark your calendars for May 20th, 2017, and plan to be at the LA County Fire Fighter's Memorial Ceremony at LAO.  We want every off-duty Local 1014 member to commit to attending this year.  If you are not working, you need to be there.  Join us to pay tribute and to "never forget" our fallen.

As most may know last week a young firefighter from Marietta Georgia Fire Department lost his life in a tragic accident on the boarder of LAC and LAFD. The vehicle he was traveling in was struck by a drunk driver. The other firefighters in the vehicle were treated and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Members of Local 1014 worked on this young brother but he had succumed to his injuries.

The days that followed proved that the brotherhood of the fire service is alive and well. Local 1014 members along with members of Local 112, LAPD, LAX and many other fire locals honored this young firefighter by making sure he was transported with honor and dignity from the coroners office to the mortuary then LAX for his trip home. It was an honor and a privileged to pay such a tribute to this firefighter.

Please keep his family, department and members of his community in your thoughts and prayers.

Easter Weekend is a perfect time to reflect, remember, sacrifice and commit to any number of things in our behaviors that make us better people, a better team of folks that serve others and to remember our fallen.  We encourage everyone to celebrate responsibly and make a plan early if you are going to drink alcohol.  Get a ride, get a room, get a driver set up before you roll.  Your job and your life or others depends on it. 

Happy Easter everyone an enjoy your families and our family this weekend.
