Your Plano Firefighters were up early this morning delivering nutritious meals to food-insecure Plano ISD students headed into Fall Break.

Hat tip to Captain Ray Fitch and D/E John Burch for coming out of retirement this morning to lend a hand.

What is “Company-Level Training?”

Much of the training your Plano Firefighters undergo is assigned by the department. Everyone in the organization does the same class, drills, or evolutions.

Company-level training is different. It is not assigned by anyone. The crew does it on their own. They tailor it to the buildings in their districts. They base it on the crew’s strengths and weaknesses. And the goal is simple: To perform at the absolute highest level when you call them in an emergency.

Company-level training goes on every day across the City of Plano. It is the equivalent of staying after practice to get extra reps or lift extra weights. It’s firefighters being firefighters. And it’s a part of your Plano Firefighters’ culture.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano recognized your Plano Firefighters today for their lifesaving actions while treating a motorcycle crash victim earlier this summer. The patient underwent six surgeries and over 20 procedures, none of which would have been possible without the heroic work your firefighters performed on scene.

We appreciate THR Plano and their trauma team for partnering with us and recognizing the outstanding work of our members.

Today your Plano Firefighters celebrate alongside Captain Randy Stone as he retires from Plano Fire-Rescue after 38 years of service. Captain Stone leaves a legacy of being a fireman’s fireman… always having fun at work while setting the bar for professional service to the residents of Plano and taking care of those in his charge.

His two sons, both Plano Firefighters, will carry on that legacy for the next generation.

Congratulations to the entire Stone family!

Half of the patients your Plano Firefighters transport to local hospitals are over the age of 65. As demographics change, so does the demand for fire and EMS resources.

Whether you’re seven or seventy, if you need us, we’ll be there. And we’ll be there fast!

Around 30% of Plano's population is between 45-64, according to city data.

Structure Fire.

Your Plano Firefighters are on scene fighting a structure fire in the area of E. Park Blvd and P Ave.

Engine 1 checked out with heavy smoke and fire. Crews made an interior attack and ventilated vertically, as seen in the photo. They had the fire under control in a matter of minutes.

Fortunately, the heat index was ONLY 93 this morning…. That doesn’t make the bunker gear much cooler.

Strong work, men AND ladies…

29 of your Plano Firefighters participated in Peer Support Team Training last week as part of the joint mental health and wellness initiative between Plano Fire-Rescue and the Plano Firefighters Association. The training also included an optional evening session for firefighters and their spouses, complete with dinner for all the attendees.

The three-day training and the dinner were funded by your firefighters’ hard-earned dollars as we invest our own money back into mental health support for our brothers and sisters.

Peer support is one way firefighters are addressing emotional health and wellness and su***de prevention in today’s fire service. Training like the classes your firefighters participated in last week is critical for the team’s effectiveness.

Your Plano Firefighters responded to Allen yesterday afternoon to support the Allen Fire and Police response to the shooting at Allen Premium Outlets.

Plano is also one of the only departments in Texas to send a member to FDIC as one of those elite instructors. 💪

Your Plano Firefighters were recognized by Medical City Plano for their lifesaving work on a patient who suffered multiple stab wounds last month. Thanks to their rapid interventions and a looong trip to the operating room, the patient is in on track to make a full recovery.

Firefighter Paramedics Smith and Lariviere and their families were in attendance for the awards ceremony today.

Without the skilled work of your Plano Firefighters, the outcome would have been very different.

Great job, guys!

Your Plano Firefighters are wearing a different shade of blue this week to help raise men's health awareness.

Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health are all issues that affect men around the world. These issues also impact firefighters and their families at a disproportionate rate.

Early cancer detection through regular screenings and mental health resources available through programs like firefighter peer support save men's lives every day. Unfortunately, these resources are still underutilized.

So your Plano Firefighters wear blue this week to raise and let men impacted by men's health issues know that they are not alone.

Special thanks to Association Member FF/Paramedic Anthony DiMarco for championing the blue t-shirt program from start to finish. Great job!

Today Texas Health Plano recognized several of your Plano Firefighters for their outstanding work and named Plano Fire-Rescue the 2022 EMS Provider of the Year!

One of the highlights of the ceremony was reuniting a Plano resident who suffered a sudden cardiac arrest at Muehlenbeck Rec Center and his family with the Plano Parks & Recreation lifeguards who performed CPR and defibrillated him with an AED as well as the firefighter-paramedics who continued resuscitation efforts and transported him to the hospital.

Your Plano Firefighters are proud to be an integral link in the chain of survival for cardiac patients in Plano.

We hope you don’t need us. But if you do, you are in good hands!

Your Plano Firefighters are in the community this morning delivering meals, called “Lovepacs,” to the homes of food-insecure Plano ISD students ahead of the Thanksgiving break.

Plano Firefighters Executive Board member and program chair Nathan Fisk said, “Lovepacs depends on groups of trustworthy individuals to deliver the food to these families and we’re proud to be that resource for the community.”

Plano Firefighters volunteering their time off duty to deliver meals has become a holiday tradition and we’ll be back at it for Christmas. Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!!!

Last week nine of your Plano Fire-Rescue Captains and Lieutenants completed Plano’s week-long fire officer training program, known in the fire service as “Officer Development.”

Plano’s Officer Development program is heavy on leadership, personnel management, and strategy and tactics. Outside speakers include the city manager and Battalion Chief Corley Moore, host of the Weekly Scrap podcast and author of the recently-released book The 9L’s of Leadership. The class also spends significant time outside the classroom for components like PT and hands-on training scenarios.

Congratulations to all of our members of Class IV who completed the program last week. Great job!

Your Plano Firefighters pushed the newest vehicle in the fleet into service yesterday at Central Fire Station. The new Truck 1 is a Pierce Enforcer with a 107’ aerial ladder.

Truck 1 was thoughtfully designed with input from the firefighters who ride it every day. It carries lots of specialized equipment, but is also smaller than other trucks for managing the tight squeezes found throughout its district.

She made her first emergency call last night. Look for Truck 1 on the East Side and give the guys a wave!

Your Plano Firefighters’ hearts are heavy this morning. Please keep this officer, his family, and our neighboring department in your thoughts.

We lost a beloved officer in the line of duty overnight.

He was backing up another officer on a DWI investigation when he was hit by a passing driver. That driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Our officer was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

We will share more information as we can.
