Say Hi 👋🏻 to the #NEW UCLA Health LA County Mobile Stroke Unit 🚑

This rig is now patrolling #LongBeach and other #LACounty areas to be able to meet up with #Firefighters and #Paramedics to assist with assessment, treatment and transport of stroke patients. It’s staffed with a Doctor, CT Technician, Nurse and Firefighter/Paramedic.

While driving to the hospital the staff can initiate CT scanning, drug administration and real time face to face video chat with other doctors.

Please remember to dial 911 for anyone you suspect is having a stroke.

Loveeeeee anything UCLA Health related. Saved my Boyfriends life 2x last year and the whole cardiomyopathy team is amazing! He had a stroke June 1st with L eye vision loss and we took the chance to take him up to UCLA. Was seen within 2 mins of walking in the ER, had 5 ER docs eval him, 4 stroke research specialist, labs and CT within 15 mins and he was able to regain 100% of his vision in 2 days. Im excited for the benefits LB residents will have with this. The Cardiomyopathy transplant doctors are amazing and the UCLA Stroke team are the best. Yay Long Beach!

Shauna Lastique, more details regarding this. ❤

I thought it was more amusing when the valve was in the base of the hydrant

Been there done that.. X 100

Thank you for all you do

Yep, I’ve been drinking again. Richard

I hope you stopped at Gold Star and treated yourselves to a all meat burrito. You guys deserve it !

This is a reoccurring problem. Truckers typically run it over and cause flooding. What is upsetting is that it disrupts and deters business, not to mention the damage to landscaping. But why should the City of Long Beach care?

I passed by that

Use flex seal next time...

Last night around 9 p.m. #LongBeachFirefighters responded to a #structurefire in a small bungalow on Washington Place and E. 9th St.

One person in the house managed to escape but suffered some minor burns from the #fire and transported to a local hospital.

#Firefighters were able to quickly extinguished the blaze, but the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Glad Fire was extinguished. No injuries. Take care. You are so precious to us. 😃

Thank you

that flange is for a pipe pumping some type of fluid heave duty

Be safe Sta 6. Confined space work is no joke.

As firefighters, we see horrors few can imagine. While the call may end, the effects linger.
If we’re not careful, sometimes they can push us over the edge.

Experts Support Four-Person Staffing On Fire Engines/Trucks

Since 2004, the Long Beach Fire Department has lost 30 sworn positions and is now below 1970’s staffing levels when the department responded to 5000 emergency calls, compared to 2010’s 48,525 calls. The Long Beach Firefighters are especially concerned about a city proposal to cut staffing onboard firefighting units from four to three, since this will cause completely unnecessary life-threatening delays.

California law requires that there must be four firefighters on scene before a unit can deploy personnel into a fire. If a unit arrives with only three firefighters, it has to wait for back-up wasting critical time since fire doubles in size every minute. Lost time results in greater danger to those in the building, those fighting the fire, the structure itself and surrounding neighbors.
