Friday Update  

Brothers and Sisters, 

This week, Local 1014 and the Los Angeles County Fire Department joined our partners from across the region including LAFD, United Firefighters of Los Angeles City, IAFF Local-112, OC Firefighters, Local 3631, Long Beach Firefighters, for a two-day training seminar: “Everyone Goes Home.” 

At the seminar, LACOFD Captain Chad Christianson instructed the group of over 200 on Fire Behavior. There was also a special emphasis on Behavioral Health, lessons learned from past incidents and cancer prevention--all of which are critical components to ensuring our members stay safe and healthy while on the job. 

Across town, Long Beach Firefighters Local 372 and Local 1014 hosted an advanced Firefighter Suicide Prevention and Awareness training.  Several of our LA County Peers attended to continue learning how to help our members and ensure they build resiliency and get the help they need when they need it. 

It was a great week for our members as we continuing to train hard to stay safe and ensure everyone goes home.

MEASURE FD 

This week, you should be seeing our television ad spot beginning to roll out and mail beginning to hit voter households for Measure FD. This is the largest ballot initiative and political action campaign in the Union's 70-year history. Local 1014 is at the helm of a monumental effort to ensure that Measure FD passes on March 3.

Measure FD will be the first additional revenue measure for our Department ever and will bring an additional $134 million annually for stations, equipment, and staffing. Not since Proposition E in 1997 have we asked the voters for additional funding for our Fire Department. We have been good stewards of the public’s funds and have used them to provide world-class services to our residents. But since 1997, we have seen a dramatic shift in the scope of our emergency services, the intensity of our fire season and the use of technology as a critically important tool for providing emergency services. A stable and adequate funding source for our needs in the next 20 years will be critical.

In Solidarity,

President Dave Gillotte and the Local 1014 Executive Board
