With #LongBeach Unified School District heading into summer 😎 #LongBeachFirefighters wanted to remind everyone that DROWNINGS can happen in seconds! YOUR ARMS are their best protection!

Pool toys aren’t designed to float you to safety. Put little kids in life jackets approved by the Coast Guard.

Great to have #peersupport leaders from around the county come together at our union hall and share their experiences. They were able to discuss what is working and what needs improvement regarding #behavioralhealth and #mentalhealth in the #fireservice

June is PTSI (Post-Traumatic Stress Injury) awareness month. It’s time to break the stigma that speaking up is a weakness. Post-traumatic stress is an injury that is no less in need of treatment than a broken bone. #Firefighters see horrific tragedies day in and day out year after year.

Special thanks to our Brother and @halos4heroes founder Jason Cash and Scott Ross from Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014 LACoFD for helping bring these leaders together to heal our Brothers and Sisters across the county.

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.
