Tuesday evening monsoon rains brought severe flash flooding to the metro area catching three victims in our arroyos. For the past three days AFR in conjunction with Albuquerque Police Department, Bernalillo County Fire Department and Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office have worked to recover the victims from the flood channel. It has been a somber recovery that has reminded all of us the power of nature and the importance of not being in or around arroyos during rain storms. Albuquerque Area Firefighters IAFF Local 244

This afternoon, AFR crews responded to an individual who had fallen into the storm drain and was trapped. He sustained several injuries and was found hanging precariously in the confined space. Multiple companies worked together to manage a dynamic scene, disentangle the trapped patient, and maintain a RIT (Rapid Intervention Team). Their efficiency, quick thinking and excellent team effort paid off and the patient was successfully rescued and transported to a local hospital by Albuquerque Ambulance.

Earlier this afternoon AFR responded to a working structure fire in SE Abq. Engine 3 arrived on scene and reported smoke coming from the small single story home and initiated an offensive strategy, making entry to the front door for fire control and search. Additional fire crews arrived from Stations 1, 2, 5, 7 and 13 to assist with fire operations.
Fire crews were able to get the fire extinguished quickly that had originated in the kitchen. While performing an interior search, Rescue 3 located two dogs inside the home and were able to successfully get them safely outside of the home. Firefighters administered oxygen and after a short period of time, both dogs appeared to make a full recovery. The homeowner was not home at the time of the fire, no injuries were reported to firefighters or civilians.
Great job Battalion 1 and 2 crews making a quick stop. Albuquerque Area Firefighters IAFF Local 244

Oh the dog days of summer make sure our job is never boring and always rewarding.
Today at Station 11, firefighters along with the Albuquerque Animal Welfare helped save one of our furriest community members whose curiosity got them stuck. This pups owner brought her in for a station visit to help free its head from a tire rim. Dr. Kat Rodriguez and Tiffany Fernandez from Cabq Animal Welfare quickly and graciously came to our aid to safely sedate this scared furry friend making for a successful and safe rescue. Great job Rescue 11, Engine 5, Ladder 5 and Battalion 2. Albuquerque Area Firefighters IAFF Local 244

AFR, Albuquerque Police Department and New Mexico National Guard completed the second week for Camp Fearless hosted at the North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center and park. This City sponsored summer camp consists of single day camps once a week for six weeks. Camps are structured for different age groups and focus on creating positive relationships between our youth and first responders. Campers learn basic first aid, injury prevention and a comprehensive demonstration of emergency response agency operations. This week campers participated in fitness exercises, classroom lecture and demonstrations, rope rescue courses and other fun activities. Each week, camps are hosted at different locations throughout Albuquerque. Registration is closed at this time but another camp is expected again next year.

Today Firefighters from Albuquerque Fire Rescue, officers from the Albuquerque Police Department, Solid Waste, and many other members of the community, completed the rebuild of a home that was severely damaged last year in a fire.

In November 2020, Albuquerque Fire Rescue responded to a house fire in the Valley Area Command near I-25 and Aveneda Cesar Chavez. AFR was able to save the home, however there was extensive damage.

Once the fire was extinguished, a disturbance call was generated and officers from APD responded to the scene. Officers spoke with the residents of the home and learned they needed assistance with temporary housing and rebuilding of their home.

APD officers contacted the Red Cross and the Special Work Assignment Team, a volunteer crew with Habitat for Humanity. Although not a Habitat project, many of the same volunteers stepped up to assist and immediately went to work.

Firefighters from AFR, officers from APD, Clean Crews from Solid Waste, and many other community volunteers donated their time and money to help rebuild the home. Solid Waste got involved thanks to the Downtown Public Safety Echo and crews helped with picking up trash and debris post fire as well as excess construction materials during the rebuild. Firefighter Random Acts volunteers raised money for the project and recruited volunteers.

Multiple businesses across Albuquerque donated supplies; contractors provided free labor, including Lowe’s, Summit Electrical, Hunter-Bower, Home Depot, Champion Windows, Harder Champion, Pats Doors, Board Up, Raks, and IAFF 244. Additionally, local plumber Greg Ortiz provided his skills, electrician Ed Mora handled the electrical, and Victor Carillo stuccoed the home.

On June 25, after seven months of hard work and dedication from all parties involved, the volunteers presented the family with a safer home, completely free from fire damage. This labor of love was a true example of the Albuquerque Community rallying behind a family in need.

Albuquerque Fire Rescue was dispatched this morning to the area of Tingley and Marquez Ln SW for a smoke investigation near the Bosque. Engine 1 arrived on scene and reported smoke coming from the Bosque just west of Tingley Rd. Additional resources were added to the event and the Wildland Taskforce was deployed to assist in extinguishing the fire. A total of 26 firefighters were on scene to extinguish the approximate ¼ acre fire with 1-2 foot flame lengths. Firefighters utilized hand tools and handlines while operating in the Bosque. The AFR Arson Investigators were also called to the event due to the suspicious nature of the fire. Firefighters were able to successfully extinguish the fire preventing it from spreading past the ¼ acre. No injuries were reports to civilians or firefighters.

We're expecting a severe fire season, & with holidays like Independence Day just around the corner, firework usage is ramping up. It's more important than ever to celebrate safely & to never use illegal fireworks. Remember, smoking & open flames are also not permitted at Open Space areas. If you spot illegal fireworks, the fastest way to let the City know is to report it online at cabq.gov/fireworks or on the ABQ311 app (please provide the exact address if possible).

With the peak times of house fires upon us, I'd like to express gratitude to Tim Pope for installing new smoke detectors in the homes of elderly citizens. Thank you Mr. Pope, AFR & The Red Cross for the services, care & compassion you provide within our community.
Any word on the fire trucks and thick smoke that took place last night (around 10:30PM 12/8/20) by the Bosque at Central and Tingley?
The smoke is really thick NE juan tabo constitution We heard about 10 shots now smoke and we already had two tire stores on fire a few weeks ago
To The ABQ Fire Department, I'm embarrassed that you take care of our people. A little boy came to our house last night after being beat by his parents. He had 2 holes in the back of his head. When the fire department showed up, all those asses did was complain that they had to come to the rescue of a poor little boy. WTF is wrong with you????? I want those guys fired. They complained TO MY FACE they had to bother with the poor little boy. I hope to hear from the Fire Chief or the Mayor before I let every news outlet know what kind of people you employ. This will not end well for the Abq FD. Why did your employees even bother showing up? He had almost no clothes on, no socks, and was freezing and YOUR department complained. If the police weren't there I would have kicked the crap out of those asses. What do you have to say?
Thanks so much to Captain Eddy ,Dom and poncho. For going above and beyond helping us out. God blessing.
Smoke is super thick outside have to use inhaler. Is there smoke from Colorado fires or NM fires, I live by Sandia mts is there a fire up there?
Saw the squad here in Laughlin, NV on what is sure to be their return trip home from fighting the California wildfires!! Thank you for your service and sacrifice in protecting us!! Enjoy ur trip home gentlemen and a few hours of rest you guys deserve it!!!
