  Happy Thanksgiving
Local 1014 Brothers and Sisters

We know we have much to be thankful for heading into this Thanksgiving Weekend.  We work for one of the greatest fire service agencies in the World and that's because of the men and women who make it happen each and every day.  We are thankful for the spirit and passion and dedication that our membership brings to the firehouse and the citizens we serve in Los Angeles County and throughout the World with the vast Structural, Air and Wildland, Forestry, Health Haz-Mat, Dispatch, Heavy Equipment and Emergency Medical Services we offer.   We are like no other agency in the world in all we do and all we are.  COUNTY!  Local 1014! 

Local 1014 has been working hard on your behalf and on behalf of our families as late as the day before Thanksgiving to remain at the forefront of Union strength to advance and protect the members who serve with the Los Angeles County Fire Fire Fighters IAFF Local 1014.  There is so much that goes into our collective team that is over 3200 strong.  Remember as we give thanks, that we also work hard to keep our way of life and our profession at the top of the game.  Local 1014 members work hard and play hard and are Thankful for all we have in opportunity to serve and time with our friends and families. 

Thanksgiving is a day we now know as a Recognized Holiday to not only give thanks, but also to kick off the Holiday Season and spend time with our families and friends and eat too much and celebrate all that is good. Thanksgiving has its origins in an annual Good Harvest Thanks and was a hard fought for recognized holiday in our history. The original meal of 1621 at Plymouth Rock was not formally set into America's History until hundreds of years later. After much debate and political influence by Presidents Washington and Lincoln and 40 years of letters from author Sarah Josepha Hale to politicians, and with the help of stores and commerce interests who wanted to kick off spending for the season entering into Christmas, Franklin D. Roosevelt, on December 26, 1941, signed a joint resolution of Congress to set the Thanksgiving Holiday to be the fourth Thursday in November. This is now a vital part of our economy as well as a day to give thanks for hard work and the fruitful harvest of our efforts. This strangely sounds a lot like a Union Operation!

Enjoy the Thanksgiving Feast and give thanks and prayer for all we are fortunate to have and remember the hard work it took to get it done, and as always we ask that you do so responsibly.   Choose not to drink this holiday or limit your drinks, but if you are going to drink alcohol, remember GET A DRIVER, GET A CAB or GET A ROOM, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!

Please take a moment and remember the families of our fallen, and the those who are less fortunate then us. Remember those in our country and throught the wold who have suffered tragedy be it natural or man made. This has been a difficult year for many. They need our thoughts and prayers and our voices to surround them with our arms and know that they are part of our family  always. 

"We shall Never Forget"

On behalf of the Local 1014 Executive Board I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families be safe. 

Dave Gillotte
President, Local 1014
