September 9th-12th is National Suicide Awareness Week. In 2018, more #firefighters committed suicide than died in the line of duty. We encourage not only our members but anyone to reach out if they need help.

I discussed this situation with my university students in the hopes that they would start taking the time to be thankful to our first responders. Often times, I have my students write thankyou notes to the first responders!! I love it when the fire fighters take the time to reply with a two page hand written note!

Healing takes time and lots of prayers!

Wherever you are, you will always be in my ❤ HEART ❤ The time is passing for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th🇺🇸. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family every child that lives in grief.

Talk with someone. 🙏🏻for all of you.

WOW. What an accomplishment. 👏🔥🥰

Great news

Can i bring my grandbabies to visit?

Yesterday I saw a Long Beach ladder truck going north on the 605 near Beverly . No crew just driver . I believe there was a chase vehicle behind . Could this be the Engine 12 that got funding to be reborn ?

Awesome

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.
