Congratulations to six Lexington firefighters who were able to obtain their swiftwater rescue technician certification last week in Campbellsville. Firefighters Byers, Howard, Hollins, Oakley, Durrenburg and Lt. Abell endured long days and nights and a lot of time in the cold water. And special thanks to Campbellsville Fire & Rescue for hosting and coordinating such a high-quality training event!

Thank you to the men and women of the Lexington Fire Department who stepped up to help a Brother in need and to the Kentucky Blood Center for collecting 51 pints of blood!

Jesse Eaton with the Lexington Fire Department's 4-year-old daughter was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in October. A component of her treatment is regular blood transfusions.

It's no surprise that Lexington's bravest stepped up yesterday to support their brother and his family. More than 50 from LFD showed up to donate blood.

You can help too. Jesse's daughter is being treated at UK HealthCare, where nearly 40% of our blood products are sent.

Let's all join in and help the Eaton family beat cancer!

Thousands of hours of preparation, evaluation, and training have gone into today. The Lexington Fire Department has successfully transitioned into MSA SCBA (Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus). Our evaluation and implementation began in January 2022, driven by 200+ firefighters providing feedback and assessments. Our Chief of Logistics, Joey Harris, said, “We sincerely appreciate the investment from our organization and the vendors who provided the resources needed to finalize this decision. We would also like to thank Mayor Linda Gorton and the City of Lexington, Ky - Government City Council for providing the funding necessary to purchase this mission’s essential equipment. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is more than gear in firefighting – it’s a lifeline. It is a crucial tool that allows us to navigate hazardous environments.” Thank you to Vogelpohl Fire Equipment and MSA for their assistance moving our department forward and to everyone who helped achieve this historic milestone!

Attention all current and former firefighters,
This completely voluntary opportunity is available in January and is brought to you by the Local Professional Fire Fighters of Richmond, Nicholasville, and Lexington.

COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH SCREENINGS at the Union Hall - JANUARY 2-6, 2024
Over the past year, Local 526 Executive Board members have had the opportunity to learn about and experience United Diagnostic Services (UDS), a leading provider of comprehensive wellness screening and diagnostic services for firefighters. UDS specializes in early diagnosis and treatment through advanced diagnostic techniques, helping individuals gain a comprehensive understanding of their overall health status.

Given the nature of our work as firefighters, we are at a higher risk of developing certain types of cancer and other diseases. Early detection is crucial in improving health outcomes and reducing the need for more invasive interventions. We, along with the LFD Health and Safety Committee, are excited to partner with UDS to bring them to Lexington January 2-6, 2024 to offer our members and retirees access to state-of-the-art screening services that prioritize early detection and prevention.

Benefits of partnering with United Diagnostics Services include:
- Comprehensive wellness screening and testing programs utilizing advanced diagnostic techniques
- Early detection of potential pathologies, cardiovascular diseases, and occupational cancers
- Timely treatment and improved health outcomes
- Support from UDS Health's team of experts

Groups from across the Commonwealth of Kentucky worked tirelessly to search for two men trapped in a building collapse in Martin County. Over two days, we were able to send 16 firefighters. We were humbled to work alongside some of the bravest in this state toward a common goal. The outcome, however, was not what we had hoped. Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the two men who perished there in Eastern Kentucky.
