Due to the Woolsey Fire, the Local 1014 Executive Board has voted to extend the election period by one week in order to allow all members the opportunity to submit their ballots. WE WILL ACCEPT BALLOTS THROUGH NEXT TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2018. 

Many of our members have been working an excess of 7 to 10 days in a row and have been embedded at the Woolsey Camp. This extension will allow time for our members to mail in their ballots over the next few days. 

If you have not received your ballot, please contact the Union office immediately at 800-334-6285.  

Remember:

  • Ballots must be postmarked by U.S. Postal Service and received at the Post Office Box by 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, in order to be counted!
  • No hand-carried ballots will be accepted at the Union Hall or at the Post Office.

Ballots will be counted on Tuesday, November 27th by California Elections Company (CEC) and results will be posted to the web and sent to stations and sites.

Thank you in advance for your vote and your voice.

FRIDAY UPDATE 

Brothers & Sisters,

This has been an extremely challenging week for our members, our families and the communities we serve.Thank you to all of our members who have served during this siege.  

The Woolsey Fire has now burned nearly 100,000 acres, destroyed over 400 structures and caused 4 deaths. This is no doubt the worst fire in the County’s history and certainly in recent memory. We have deployed 450 fire engines, 40 water tankers, 22 helicopters flying day and night and 50 bulldozers to fight back this fire. We are also ensuring that we continue to fully staff our stations to protect the rest of the 2,307 square mile LA County Fire District. 

We created the rules as we went to staff our rigs with two shifts per rig. We pulled rigs from everywhere to fill 27 strike teams while at the same time covering our vast area of LA County with fire and paramedic service.  We moved Orange County Fire Department rigs into our stations to help while we drew down hard to get it done. Local 1014 Dispatchers, Forestry and Health HazMat, FSA’s, and Heavy Equipment all pulled hard to help get it done.  We should all be proud of our efforts.  

Thank you to Chief Daryl Osby for communicating early and often on this fire and empowering his staff to work with our Local 1014 Executive Board to create solutions to staffing and working condition issues. As for our ongoing recall issues for strike teams and seven-day staffing issues, we were able to get these addressed by the Chief from the operations briefing area where we told him it was held up at OPS.  There will be more action on the staffing items in the coming weeks.  

Additionally, for the first time ever, we formed 'Occupancy Support Strike Teams.'  These teams went out into the communities devastated by the loss of homes to help them repopulate and look for lost treasures, records and photos etc.  There were many small victories in the middle of this tragedy such as the strike team that helped a woman find antiques and heirloom rings from her grandmother amidst the rubble of her home (pictured below). This was an emotional moment for her and our strike team members were humbled to restore a little piece of her life amidst the ashes

We would like to thank to Governor Elect Gavin Newsom and State Senator Henry Stern for taking time this week to join our first responders on the front line and shadow our Peer SupportTeams. We thank them both for their commitment to getting our members more resources and more behavioral health support not only on this incident but long term. Our Peer Support Teams have been fighting the fire on the front lines while offering support for our fellow brothers and sisters. We are committed to getting our members the help they need both physically and emotionally. We embedded Peer Teams at both the Woolsey Fire and the Camp Fire. We had over 60 Firefighters lose their homes throughout California, one Firefighter run over by a car, and we had peer support needs for Firefighters from last week’s Borderline shooting. Thank you to all our Peer Support Team Leaders who have been spearheading this monumental effort.

           

        

Tomorrow, President Dave Gillotte will be joining President Trump’s tour of the Woosley Fire. On behalf of our members, we will continue to ensure that all our elected representatives from every level of government know the challenges our members face here in Los Angeles County, not just during wildfires but every day, as we protect the residents of Los Angeles County with limited resources and staffing.

To that end, we also provided a tour of the fire site to our Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer and used it as an opportunity to explain the harsh conditions our members face out in the field and again lobby for our contract to come to a resolution.

We would also like to thank IAFF 10th District Vice President Frank Lima and CPF President Brian Rice who have been instrumental in getting our members and members of our surrounding locals the help they need. 

On behalf of the Local 1014 Executive Board, we are proud and honored to represent the men and women of the Los Angeles County Fire Department. 

In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board

Assistance for Members in Fire-Affected Areas

Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health Haz Mat personnel

Brothers & Sisters, 

The Woolsey Fire has now grown to over 70,000 acres destroying at least 150 structures. The Camp Fire has now spread to over 90,000 acres and destroyed an astonishing 6,500 homes. 

                  

                     

While thousands of our first responders are working day and night to protect lives and property, many of them have homes in the path of these fires and several have already lost their homes. 

The IAFF Disaster Relief Fund provides immediate financial assistance to help these displaced Firefighters and their families while they continue to serve the surrounding communities. 

If you are a union member and have lost your home, click here to register for IAFF Disaster Relief Fund and contact your Local 1014 Executive Board.

FRIDAY UPDATE 

Brothers & Sisters, 

This week has been a difficult week with the news of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks claiming the lives of 12 people including a Ventura County Sheriff. Our LA County Peers in conjunction with the IAFF have been providing behavioral health support for those affected including first responders. Our thoughts and prayers are with our brothers and sisters at Ventura County Professional Firefighters Local 1364 and Ventura County Deputy Sheriff’s Association. 

Now once again, the news is flooded with images of unprecedented wildfires sweeping across Los Angeles County—this is truly becoming the “new normal.” 

               

    

We currently have nearly 100,000 people evacuated and thousands of homes under attack throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties as part of the Woolsey Fire. Our members are working day and night to protect lives and property both at home and as part of over a dozen strike teams across the State, including at the Camp Fire in Northern California which has caused at least five deaths and destroyed entire towns and over 2,300 structures. 

All year long, our members face constant recalls due to short staffing and poor planning by the Department. When large scale incidents occur, our members answer the call. No matter how tired or how many hours they have worked they respond because that is our job. 

Today and every day, your Executive Board is proud to represent the incredible men and women of the Los Angeles County Fire Department as they fight to protect our communities.   

Be safe out there. Take care of each other. 

In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
