It has not been a good day for the fire service… Please keep our Bothers and Sisters at Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014 in your thoughts and prayers. Brother Flagler, we will take it from here…

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of our own, Brother Jonathan “Jon” Flagler. Brother Flagler passed away early this morning after sustaining significant injuries while battling a residential structure fire in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Known for his dedication and commitment to the profession, Brother Flagler, 47, was a 21-year veteran Firefighter. He was previously a member of the Vernon Fire Department for 19 years before transitioning to LACOFD in October 2020.

Brother Flagler leaves behind a wife, Jenny, and two sons, 15 and 13. Please keep the Flagler family and our 1014 Fire Family in your thoughts and prayers. Our LACOFD Peer Support Team and Chaplains have been sent to the family, affected personnel, and stations.

This incident is a sobering reminder of the real dangers our members face each and every day as we fight to keep our communities safe.

We will take it from here Brother. #WeShallNotForget

It is our absolute favorite day of the year! And although we were not able to personally deliver the gifts this year, we needed to make sure the kids still knew how much we care! We made a quick call, and we were lucky enough to have Santa stop by. The sleigh was broken down, but Truck 461 was just as good! Thank you to the members of Central Church - Green Bay, Green Bay Metro Fire Department, Chief Litton, Truck 461, Engine 481, Battalion 411, and HSHS St. Vincent Children's Hospital for making this year another memorial amd uplifting experience…

**Incident Release**

*Fire in the Village of Bellevue*

GBMFD units responded to a vehicle on fire in a detached 9 unit garage complex last night. Upon arrival, the first due engine encountered flames and smoke coming from 2 of the units. The fire was aggressively attacked and the other garage units were accessed to check for fire extension. The fire was stopped at the adjoining unit to the units on fire. The scene was declared under control in about 20 minutes.

The cause of the car on fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshall Division.

On the morning of December 17th at 7 am, Captain Brian “BC” Cairns will walk out the doors of Station 4 one last time after faithfully serving the citizens and visitors of the City of Green Bay and Villages of Allouez and Bellevue for the last 26 years. Captain Cairns started with the Green Bay Fire Department on April 10, 1995 as an EMT-Paramedic. He faithfully served our country in the National Guard for 8 years. Prior to being hired on the GBMFD, Brian worked for De Pere Fire Department for 4 years. He worked at various stations throughout his career climbing from the rank of Private to Captain, with most of those years serving at Station 6. Throughout his career, Brian has had many interesting calls, way too many to remember. He stated a couple of the events that made an impression on him was assisting Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, bringing them out on Lambeau Field on game days, and hearing all the stories of what they went through to receive the medals. He was also able to assist Madison Fire Department twice, by volunteering his time to cover calls while members of the Madison Fire Department attended funerals for fire fighters that dies in the Line of Duty. When asked what Brian will miss the most, he stated he will miss being there when someone needs you. When someone calls 911, they need help, and being able to respond and mitigate the issue meant more to him than anything else. With retirement, he is looking forward to working security at St. Vincent Hospital, spending more time with family, traveling, and actually having a whole weekend off. He also stated the fact that he will be able to sleep in one bed consistently sounds amazing, since working 24-hour shifts does not allow us to be home every night! Please help us in congratulating Captain Brian Cairns on his 26 years of service protecting the citizens and visitors of our great community from the perils of fire and medical emergencies…

Thinking of our Brothers and Sisters at Local 215 following the loss of Battalion Chief Slowey. He was an icon at Milwaukee Fire Departmemt and will be missed…

Today the Milwaukee Fire Department is filled with sorrow as we lost a great man. Battalion Chief Sean Slowey was a great teacher, mentor, and brother to hundreds of other firefighters through his career and will never be forgotten.
We will take it from here.

The Green Bay Metro Fire Department was dispatched at 8:36 PM on 12-9-21 to the 700 block of Bay Beach Rd for the report of a structure fire, with smokes and flames. GBMFD arrived on scene within 3 minutes and found heavy smoke coming from rear of structure. The incident was upgraded to "Box Alarm" to get additional assistance due to large size of structure, and heavy smoke/fire.

GBMFD crews remained on scene into the early morning hours to continue overhaul and check for hotspots. The fire is under investigation by the Green Bay Metro Fire Department's Fire Marshal Office.

For everybody wondering about insurance and spouse missing enrollment for their plan they will or should be able to enroll themselves due to the city’s delay in getting info out to us because that is considered a qualifying event in insurance terms the sh*tty thing is children/dependents cannot be enrolled so they will stay on city plan for time being. So spouse could likely have their own plan separate from the family city plan. If your spouse is going through open enrollment now or by the end of the year, please have them review everything to see if moving the entire family is the better benefit. Vickie is going through open enrollment now and has questions to Jill and the city so she can make a truly informed decision on our healthcare for 2021. What the city is doing is legal,for now,until insurance companies start paying out claims, but not ethical. So in short the city is pulling a fast one.
Wanted to share this shot I got Thursday evening at the site where Lt. Arnie Wolff gave the ultimate sacrifice and served his Last Alarm.
Hello everyone! I am doing a research for my grad school which the main goal is to compare the food intake among adults from two different countries, Brazil and USA, more specifically from Fortaleza and Green Bay. I would really appreciate your help on answering a few questions on how your food habits are. I need a total of 382 people to answer it and I still need 257 to get there. I would also be really grateful if you could send it to your friends and family members so they can answer it too!
Hi there! I’m conducting this study about the diet habits of adults that live in Green Bay. I would really appreciate if you could help me by answering it and sharing it with your friends in Green Bay. ♥️

Thoughts and prayers to the family of retired Captain Tom Titulaer ,on his passing.
I’m not 100 this is the correct FD but this is Zak, he is collecting shirts from the various FD in the country. His teacher started this kind of by accident just wanting to get him something after his last surgery and it has turned into a big flood of shirts coming in. I am not necessarily getting the address where the shirts are from. I just wanted to say thank you!!! Big thank you! Zak was a victim of shaken baby at 10 months old and was not expected to live or we were told he would be catatonic. He is far from that and just turned 20 and is full of life. So thank you for this it means the world to my family and Zak!!!!
