Over the past few months Chris Betscher has held a county wide training once a month for all fire departments of Johnson County. In March of this year, it was search and rescue. There were three different scenarios where teams of 3 had to find and rescue a "victim". Here are a few pictures from that night.

The summer rains have kept the grass fires in check. Fire dispatch has two months in using the new CAD system and it is doing great. Many departments have purchased Ipads so they can interact with the CAD system. Liberty Chapel received a new engine, Godley got some new equipment, and Briaroaks installed new radios on their equipment. School starts in a couple of weeks so drive safe out there.

Classic Retrovision Milestones

Classic Retrovision Milestones

45 years ago today, Emergency! premiered. It was a joint production of Mark VII Limited in association with Universal Television for NBC. It debuted as a midseason replacement on January 15, 1972, on NBC, replacing the two short-lived series The Partners and The Good Life, and ran until May 28, 1977, with six additional two-hour television films during the following two years.
Emergency! was created and produced by Jack Webb and Robert A. Cinader, both of whom were also responsible for the police dramas Adam-12 and Dragnet. Harold Jack Bloom is also credited as a creator; Webb does not receive screen credit as a creator in the show's original TV-movie pilot, being only credited as its director.
The series starred Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe as two specially-trained firefighters who formed Squad 51, part of a then-innovative field known as paramedics who were authorized to provide initial emergency medical care to victims of accidents, fire and other incidents in the field. The plot of the initial pilot film described the passing of state legislation, signed by Governor Ronald Reagan, and was called the The Wedsworth-Townsend Act. It allowed the creation of paramedic units. Squad 51 worked in concert with the (fictional) Rampart General Hospital medical staff (portrayed by Robert Fuller, Julie London, and Bobby Troup), who took over each patient's case from the paramedics who worked in the field.
Nearly 30 years after Emergency! debuted, the Smithsonian Institution accepted Emergency! memorabilia into its National History Museum, public-service section, including their helmets, turnouts, biophone, and defibrillator.

ESD Hires New Executive Director

Johnson County Emergency Services District #1 has announced their selection of their new Executive Director. Tom Foster of Burleson was selected from more than 40 candidates for the position. Foster will replace Burney Baskett who has served as Executive Director for the last three years.
Tom Foster is a native of Burleson and a 1981 graduate of Burleson High School. He recently retired as Deputy Chief of the Burleson Fire Department. Foster began his career as a volunteer firefighter in Johnson County and also worked for Medstar ambulance Service.
ESD President R.C. McFall stated “Tom’s close ties to Johnson County, his knowledge of the departments here as well as his familiarity with the Chiefs and firefighters who he will be working with gives him a big jump on getting started. The Board was impressed with his work history and his experience in the Fire Service both paid and volunteer.”

Mr. Foster will be working with the outgoing Executive Director over the next two weeks to be briefed on current projects and programs.

Merry Christmas !!!

Great video from our brothers up north!

This holiday season, while we are all spending time with our loved ones, these are the men and women keeping us safe.
Today, I am honored to release this video in honor of the police, firefighters and EMS who put their lives on the line for us. I'm hoping each and every one of you who watches this video will tag a first responder (or 10) and share this video far and wide as a show of solidarity and support for them.
This piece was produced by my lead content producer Daniel Herzog and I at The Silent Partner Marketing in conjunction with the Manchester Police Department, Manchester Fire Dept. 8th Dist. and the Manchester Fire Rescue EMS Engine Company #5 - it's part of our ongoing donation of $250,000 worth of services to first responders and veterans. Keep following - we are just warming up.
God bless our first responders....and God bless America.

General information

The Johnson County Emergency Services District #1 (ESD) was originally formed in the mid-1950's as a Rural Fire Prevention District. The District was created to help provide funding for Johnson County fire departments. In 2003, the State of Texas required all Rural Fire Prevention Districts to convert into Emergency Services Districts as outlined in the State Health & Safety Code Section 775. Of the approximately 280 Emergency Services Districts in the State of Texas, the Johnson County ESD has more individual fire departments within its organization than any other ESD. Because most small fire departments require help when fighting fires, having a countywide organization with a common dispatching system, provides a great opportunity to combine these resources for the protection of lives and property.
