Friday Update

Brothers & Sisters,

This week, we saw the heart-wrenching footage of our brothers and sisters at United Firefighters of Los Angeles City Local 112 (UFLAC) enduring a massive explosion in Downtown LA. By the grace of God, all members from Station 9 survived. Our thoughts and prayers are with the 12 injured members and their families as they begin the long road to recovery. 

      

This incident footage highlights the intense danger our members face each day. The investigation has begun on this incident and information from the fire will be shared with all so we can train and improve our operations. Click here to watch Chief Terrazas interview on the incident.  We are working closely with UFLAC, as our Chiefs Terrazas and Osby, on coordinating our Peer Team to help all impacted members and their families cope with the aftermath of this incident.

We stand in solidarity with Local 112. These injured Firefighters and their families will need support as they begin the long road to recovery. UFLAC has set up a fund through its foundation to raise money for these families. Show your support and donate today.

1014 Blood Drive 

                             

The Red Cross is experiencing a severe shortage of blood due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has not only limited donors but also available sites for blood drives. As part of our commitment to our communities, we are hosting a blood drive and partnering with Supervisor Hilda Solis to help get the word out that we need donors. 

This drive will be open to the public but by appointment only. No walk-in accepted. We also require donors to fill out an online form in advance, wear a face covering or mask for your appointment, and adhere to our social distancing requirements. 

Friday, June 12, 2020

Finally, as we celebrate Memorial Day and those who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our Country, please remember to celebrate responsibly. Even though celebrations this year may look different than in the past, be responsible. DONT DRINK & DRIVE. Stay safe and have a great weekend. 

In Solidarity and Strength,

President Dave Gillotte and the Local 1014 Executive Board
