Phenix is very sad to announce the passing of our good friend Bob Lucchesi. Bob passed away on April 15th at the young age of 58. He started his career as a US Govt. Firefighter at the Presidio in San Francisco before joining the California State Fire Marshal's Office as a Deputy in Fire Prevention and Field Operations. In 1996 Bob replaced our founder, Ray Russell, as the Regional State Fire Training Officer. Upon retiring from the State, Bob went back to school and completed his Bachelor's and Master's degrees and served as Fire Chief at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, Ca. He also spent time as a volunteer firefighter in Riverside, Ca with the Home Gardens Volunteer Fire Company. He was a true friend to the Phenix family, especially to Ray, and he will be deeply missed. A funeral service will be held in Oregon along with a memorial service here in Southern California. As we receive more information we will share it. Please keep Bob's family in your thoughts and prayers.

AlertHouston | Red Flag Warning Issued for Houston until 3:00pm Due to Fire Danger What is Happening? The National Weather Service has issued a "Fire Weather Warning" (Red Flag Warning) for Houston until 3:00pm today because dry and windy conditions have resulted in increased fire danger. What Can I Do To Be Safe? Houston residents should be extra vigilant with things that can spark wildfires and grass fires. This includes avoiding the use of barbeques, chainsaws, or any devices which may throw sparks. It is also advised to avoid driving or idling over areas of tall grass, as dry grass interacting with the underside of a hot vehicle may spark a grass fire. For more information on how to protect your family from fire, and steps you can take to be prepared, download the Houston Fire Department's Fire Prevention & Life Safety Guidebook at www.houstontx.gov/emergency.
The New Year is upon us and people are thinking of getting together with friends, reminiscing about the year gone-by and enjoying fireworks. As a reminder, the use of fireworks is PROHIBITED on JBER, Anchorage and most of the State of Alaska. The city of Anchorage has a $300 fine for illegal use of fireworks. The JBER fire department "highly encourages" the base populous to leave the fireworks to the professionals and avoid the use of consumer fireworks. If you still want to view fireworks in the local area, you can go to the Town Square next to the Performing Arts Center in Anchorage, where the festivities start at 8 p.m. If you have any questions regarding fire safety, call Fire Prevention at 552-2620.

The students come from 13 fire departments and represent the Academy’s 66th RFFT class. “As we recognize Fire Prevention Week, I am pleased to announce that these nineteen individuals have graduated from the State’s rigorous firefighter training program, preparing them for the critically important service they will provide,” Governor Cuomo said. “Since 1984, over 1,700 recruits have successfully completed this training.

October 9 honors Emergency Nurses and Fire Prevention. We celebrate National Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work and School Day, more fun/less boring than National Popcorn Popping Day and National Chess Day. Some of my favorite mysteries are highlighted on this, Curious Events Day; the name is a bit misleading since most of the "events" are actually items, people, or other living things: crop circles, the Bermuda Triangle, Stonehenge, the pyramids, the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the fates of Jimmy Hoffa and Amelia Earhart, the truth about JFK's assassination and the "aliens" who landed at Roswell, NM. Every day deserves its special food; Octobers 9's is moldy cheese, which is redundant because all cheese requires mold for its transformation from milk to cheddar or mozzarella or havarti or whatever. Let's honor instead those pears which grow on the ancient tree near my pond; they are large and never soften enough to bite into without risking major dental damage, but they are the best ever for preserves and pe . ...
Fire Prevention Week 2013 The reason we have Fire Prevention Week is because on October 9, 1871, Mrs. Catherine O’Leary was milking her cow when the animal kicked over a lamp, that cause a large fire in Mrs. O’Leary’s barn which started the fiery of fires, because of high winds and a record dry fall this help lead to the Great city of Chicago fire. After this fire was finally put out (extinguished) it burnt down over 3.3 square miles of the city. In the United States, President Calvin Coolidge wrote a proclamation of Fire Prevention Week was made in 1925, It was told this week October 6-13 will always be used to teach and talk to students and adults in the community about the importance of fire safety.

October is Fire Prevention Month in British Columbia, we @ HBS and our friends at the MRFD would like to remind you that in addition to resetting those clocks for daylight savings, also check the batteries in your smoke alarms.

Lets reduce that number with fire prevention awareness this October.

Congressman Lloyd Doggett, who was instrumental in the grant award to AFD, said, “Austin firefighters are on the frontlines of keeping our families safe and it is up to us to protect these protectors,” said Rep. Doggett. “That begins with providing them with the training, equipment, and resources they need to do their jobs effectively and keep Austin families safe.” The grant dollars will be used to support the Department’s community outreach efforts as they relate to education, preparedness and prevention of fire- and life-safety issues in Austin, including AFD’s initiative to install working smoke alarms in every home throughout the city. AFD will be seeking City Council’s official app ...

Thought of the Week- Fire Prevention. It seems each year we have friends, associates and family that have to endure the heartbreak of a barn fire. Please take a moment and access your barn for fire hazards and develop a fire response action plan. Here are some great resources to help.
We posted the written version of the press conference, earlier, but I didn't get something very important mentioned. The resources for this fire, as of 6pm tonight, are: US Forest Service, La Veta Fire, Division of Fire Prevention and Control, Huerfano County, Pueblo County, Pinon Canyon, Huerfano County Fire Colorado State Patrol, Boulder Rural Fire and Rescue, as well as other resources. Multiple aircraft and engines have been ordered. This is the fire to focus on and the Emergency personnel are getting what they are asking for. Thank you SO much to all these people who are sacrificing their time and lives to come work on this fire. We appreciate you so very much!
The NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control offers the following information on grilling safety. Gas and Charcoal Grill Safety Outdoor Grilling Safety Tips: ■Gas and charcoal BBQ grills must only be used outdoors. If used indoors, or in any enclosed spaces, such as tents, they pose both a fire hazard and the risk of exposing occupants to toxic gases and potential asphyxiation. ■Position the grill well away from siding, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. ■Place the grill a safe distance from lawn games, play areas, and foot traffic. ■Keep children and pets away from the grill area: declare a three-foot "safe zone" around the grill. ■Put out several long-handled grilling tools to give the chef plenty of clearance from heat and flames when flipping burgers. ■Periodically remove grease or fat buildup in trays below grill so it cannot be ignited by a hot grill. Charcoal Grills: ■Purchase the proper starter fluid and store the can out of reach of children, and away ...

Campaign aims to keep families, businesses safe   May has been proclaimed “Building Safety Month” by state and federal officials to help families and businesses understand the importance of sustaining safe structures and reinforcing the need for modern building codes, strong code enforcement and a well-trained industry workforce. In issuing his proclamation, Gov. Steve Beshear has asked the Public Protection Cabinet’s Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction (DHBC) to oversee the public awareness campaign that was founded by the International Code Council (ICC). This year’s theme is “Code Officials Keep You Safe,” and the week of May 6-12 focuses on fire safety. State Fire Marshal William Swope and his staff in DHBC’s Division of Fire Prevention work diligently to eliminate the potential for loss due to fire and other hazards through education, licensing and inspection programs. “The deputy fire marshals across the state not only investigate the cause and origin of fires and ex ...

State Fire Marshal honors Fire Prevention poster contest winners Artists from kindergarten to 12th grade promoted home-escape plans NASHVILLE, TN - In the State Fire Marshal's annual banquet to honor winners of the Fire Prevention Division's youth poster contest, youths from kindergarten to the 12th grade were praised for using creativity and skill to encourage their communities to be more fire-safe. State Fire Marshal and Department of Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak addressed the adults attending the banquet Sunday before the young winners came forward to receive their certificates and prize checks: "Think about one of the roles of a parent and a grown-up - it is our job to make sure our children understand to respect and avoid the things that could harm or endanger them. This poster contest goes beyond that goal by getting our children to think of ways to warn their families about fire hazards in the home."

At 5:02 pm a first alarm assignment consisting of: E2, E6, E5, Truck-6, Rescue-2, Medic-2, and Battalion-6 were dispatched to a reported structure fire in the 2100 block of Yale Ave. The next door neighbor had noticed smoke was coming out of a vent and called 911. The Resident was not at home but returned home after being called by the same neighbor. Fire crews made entry and discovered smoke to the floor and a fire coming out of the floor. A second alarm was called and units arrived from Mt. View Fire Department. The approximately 900 sq. ft. home had extensive smoke damage throughout but the fire damage was confined to the floor in the living room. The cause of the fire has not been determined but it appears that a malfunction of the floor heater may be the cause.

Fire Tax Update: Logue Blasts Board Decision to make Fire Tax Permanent SACRAMENTO – North State Assemblyman and Chief Republican Whip Dan Logue today blasted a decision by the California Board of Forestry and Fire Prevention to make a new fire fee permanent. The fee has been challenged in a lawsuit as an illegal tax by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “This fee is and always has been an illegal tax,” said Logue. “The board’s decision to make it permanent does not take away from the fact that this supposed fee was passed without the proper vote as required by the State Constitution.” The State Responsibility Area fee, also known as the fire tax, was implemented by AB 1x29 (2011). The bill passed by a simple majority vote in the state legislature with Logue and all other Republicans voting in opposition. This action was in direct violation of Propositions 13 and 218 passed by the voters which require a two-thirds vote of the legislature to pass additional tax increases. Beginning in Aug ...

Using the Fireproofing Solution for your Christmas Tree 1. Once you get home with your new tree, get a saw and IMMEDIATELY make a fresh cut at the base of the tree trunk. This is mandatory for any tree you’ve bought. Make your cut about an inch above the bottom of the trunk. 2. Next, you’ll need a place to store your tree for a few days before taking it into your home, as it takes a few days for the preservative mentioned in the next step to fully saturate the tree. An ideal place would be the carport/garage or possible a balcony for apartment dwellers. 3. Immediately after making your cut from the bottom of the tree, mix the homemade preservative as follows: Into a 2-gallon (or 1-gallon jugs) bucket, add HOT WATER from the kitchen tap. Fill the bucket to within an inch or so of the top, then add the following ingredients: ...2 cups of Karo syrup ...2 ounces of liquid chlorine bleach ...2 pinches of Epsom salt ...½ teaspoon of Boraxo ...1 teaspoon of chelated iron (pronounced KEY-lated) Sti ...

Gallagher on Christmas: Let's look at Christmas from a fire prevention stand point: When it's cold outside and you have your heater cranked up drying the air out in your home, you go out in the woods and chop down an evergreen tree. You place it in the corner next to your drapes. Adorn it with cheap wiring and tinsel. Wrap presents with tissue paper and stuff them underneath. Invite your friends over, get drunk and light candles. :)
The Fire in garment Industry.My heart goes to all the people who had recently Died into the Fire of the Garments Factory in Bangladesh . May be our government does few investigation about this matter for few months and everything is going to be pushed down under the red tapes;but the constant accident like this tell the people of Bangladesh that there are no enforcement of laws and regulation by the government and its affiliated branches to safe guards our valuable workforce and earning members of the family. It is a sad state of affairs that this things keep happening in our culture and we haven't really learned anything from it.

WORKPLACE FIRE SAFETY Fire safety is important business. National Fire Prevention Week is intended to focus on the importance of fire safety in the home, in schools and at work. But workplace fire safety is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) principal focus and saving lives and preventing injuries due to fire is a key concern.

Building Fire Exits Each workplace building must have at least two means of escape remote from each other to be used in a fire emergency. Fire doors must not be blocked or locked to prevent emergency use when employees are within the buildings. Delayed opening of fire doors is permitted when an approved alarm s ...

Well almost done with the Thanksgiving eating. Having Thanksgiving w/ Dad Sunday at Jammi's.

Friday, Thanksgiving with the Wilson crowd, tonight Hyder Burks to watch neices and nephews run barrels and poles. But the one thing I have found within myself while being homeless (which I have decided I may never get to move back into my house) it does not matter I have every thing I need and want, my wonderful family, event though we are spread from the east coast to the west coast, and great friends. OK I want my house back, but all I need moved back in is the washer and dryer, my stove, fridge and bed is already there, I really miss the memory foam bed. But I am hoping after a phone call to the Tn Commerce and insurance: Div of Fire Prevention, who license the home movers who refuse to bring the set decal (have to have to get Electric inspection passed and turned on) back down to ...
Essential Tips for Prevention of Fire Disasters and Burn Injuries In the past few days, I have seen more burns patients than I have seen all my life. From minor scalds to major burns, such as a case of a woman with 100% burns, the stories are usually similar: careless handling of burns precipitants. For example, in many homes flame cooking, often without guard, is common place, and such cooking is done at floor level. These situations encourage burn accidents. However, burns is largely preventable in most cases and efforts required to prevent burns are simple everyday vigilance which cost little or nothing. These include: Careful handling of fire and fire-causing materials like matches. Cooking should be at a higher level where the children cannot easily reach, and the position of the fire should be such that it cannot be easily overturned. Cooking should be done with utensils that can be easily handled and not with "hand-less" pots. The handles must be made of materials that are poor conductors of heat. ...

Follow these fire prevention tips to help you and your family enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving: •Keep smoke detectors on every level of the house, in every bedroom and in the halls adjacent to the bedrooms.

Make sure that you know how to use your fire extinguisher. •Start holiday cooking with a clean stove and oven. •Keep the kitchen off-limits to young children and adults that are not helping with food preparations. •When cooking, do not wear dangling jewelry or clothing with loose sleeves. •Cook on the back burners when possible and turn pot handles in. •Never leave cooking foods unattended. If you must leave the kitchen while cooking, turn off the stove or ha ...

A Santa Rosa man who mistakenly received several hundred calls from residents frustrated with a new fire prevention fee says the state not only botched its mailers by sending appeals to his personal phone number, but appears to have used a faulty billing list.
Friendly reminder people. Fire season starts today. Please no more burning off, and please monitor any previous burns please monitor them for any smouldering. Clean up your yard and create a fire prevention plan for yourself and your family. And… Stay safe for this coming fire season.
Homeowners are being forced to pay for property that they don't even own!!! This is highly inappropriate!! I am in no way responsible for property I sold! Bob Blumenfield passed a law to have home owners pay a fire prevention fee asssessment. The law states that owners as of 07/01/11 are responsible for this bill of $115.00. It does not account for owners who sell their property. I sold my property 07/07/11 and have to pay for a bill even though I have not lived in California or owned property there for the 07/01/11 to 06/30/12 fiscal year. Just because a fiscal year starts on 07/01/11 doesn't mean everyone is going to own their property the whole year. Bob Blumenfield is irresponsible and cannot be expected to take care of anyones needs by passing laws that are written so poorly.

Each year, fire prevention professionals examine the number of civilians who die as result of fire. We look at the numbers from month to month and compare them to previous years. But they aren't mere statistics. They're people -- mothers, fathers, grandparents, and children.

So now that my ranting rage over the elections last night has subsided, I want to tell everyone two things. First off everyone have a wonderful thanksgiving holiday! Secondly don't forget to support the fundraiser for the fire prevention. Having money in this section of the fire dept could mean a family being saved or a family lost! Go to . This fundraiser I will be donating 20% of all sales to the fire prevention section of JMVFC! Please support! It will be ending on Dec 10th. These make wonderful Christmas gifts and you don't have to worry about leaving candles unattended!!

With Thankgiving Day this week here are some saftey times from the National Fire Prevention Association - Thanksgiving safety The kitchen is the heart of the home, especially at Thanksgiving. Kids love to be involved in holiday preparations. Safety in the kitchen is important, especially on Thanksgiving Day when there is a lot of activity and people at home. •Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food. •Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently. •Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away. •Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns. •Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags. •Keep knives out of the reach of children. •Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy rea ...
The unexpected fun of EBM is endless. This morning I was asked to act in a staged auto collision for the event educating all in fire prevention, medical aid, and automobile safety. So this morning I got to be in car that they cut the roof off of and then lifted out by fire fighters. Not a bad day at all- because I do love men in uniform.

I would like to take the time to let the citizen of Brigantine know that their Fire Department achieved what can be declared its finest hour. It has now been 2 weeks since Super Storm Sandy has hit the shores of our Island. We hope that everyone is getting their life back to normal. In the wake of such events there are always stories to be told. I feel it is time to let the citizens know some of the details of the efforts and heroics achieved by members of the FD/EMS. In the eight day period beginning Sunday October 28 to Sunday November 4th the department responded to over 239 alarms. To use a light hearted description; water rescue in the morning, fires in the evening, EMS all day long. The work began with evacuating the special needs victims to off shore shelters on Sunday 28th. Needless to say, more citizens should have listened to the warnings and evacuated that day. With the evacuations completed preparation began for the storm. With the rise of the first tide people realized that they had made ...

Fire prevention tomorrow at the school :-) can't wait to see them kids eyes light up :-D
This is the last day of October which is also Fire Prevention Month. Our firefighters have been pretty visible out in the community this month visiting with the school groups to educate them about fire safety and fire prevention and visiting all of the apartments in Le Sueur to inspect smoke detectors in each unit. As Fire Prevention Month draws to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on the commitment our firefighters make to the people of our community, taking the notion of community service to a level most of us cannot match! Quite simply, it is part of a firefighters job description to go into places and do things most of us would avoid (or only observe from safe distances). Whether responding to a house fire, automobile accident, or gas leak, your firefighters are there to preserve you and your property. Each and every firefighter in Le Sueur is on call 24-7, they don’t rotate duty or have days off. Have you any idea how many hours of training and drills the firefighters accumulate each year in ...
The Ware Fire dept serves approximately 10 people spread over about 33 miles. It has a Chief Deputy Chief Several Lieutenants etc. There are approx. 14 full time men. we have an on call group of men of approx 25. We provide Ambulance rescue fire coverage Fire Prevention 24.7. We have three Ambulance and approx 6 fire Apparatus. All this equip is used ifnot all at once ..at different times. Full mutual Aid to less fortunate towns. is in place to handle any mutiple fire os rescue etc.problems. The system workd amazingly well.

We can have 100 piecesof equipment and still not be able to save all. This is a fact with Firefighting.

Advance Fire Fighting Course This course has been designed to meet the requirements of STCW section VI/3 and is based on the guidelines of IMO Model Course 2.03. Course provides training at an advanced level for all officers. The course forms part of the training requirements for both deck and engineering officers who wish to qualify for a Certificate of Competency. It also meets the needs of other seafarers who are designated to control fire-fighting operations. Experienced master mariners conduct the theory sessions. These are followed by practical exercises on the fire ground and in the fire fighting unit. The syllabus deals with fire-fighting procedures both at sea and in port and places particular emphasis on organisation, tactics and effective command including liaison with shore based fire fighters. It also covers topics such as ventilation control, hazards involving dangerous goods and the effects of fire-fighting water on ship stability. A variety of practical exercises involving fighting fires o ...

Fire Prevention Week: teach your kids 2 exits, a meeting spot, ck ur extinguishers, ck smoke alarms & make sure your kids recognize the noise. Stop drop & roll should be in their vocabulary, too! Call ur local fire dept for a walk thru so your kids won't be frightened at the sight of the uniform & end up hiding under a bed or in a cupboard. Make Sparky the Bear (yep, sparky not smokey) proud, folks! Fire drills will be taught in this house monthly :-) **Borrowed from a friend - great advice!

October is Fire Prevention Month – and a good time to rake leaves, remove dead or dying vegetation and trim tree canopies. Residents are encouraged to relocate wood piles away from the home, remove combustible materials and vegetation from around and under decks, remove or prune vegetation near windows and remove dry leaves and pine needles from the yard, roof and rain gutters. “We saw homes survive the brutal wildfires of 2011 because of actions homeowners took long before ignition occurred,” said Justice Jones, Wildland Urban Interface and prevention coordinator for Texas A&M Forest Service. “It doesn’t take long and it doesn’t cost much to do a few things that could end up saving your home.” Residents also should create and practice an evacuation plan and ensure that working smoke alarms are installed on each floor of their home, said Texas State Fire Marshal Chris Connealy. “Homeowners can significantly increase their safety and their home's likelihood of survival by taking a proactive ...
