CA WILDFIRE | CARTER FIRE | 2

INCIDENT SUMMARY

A 4-Alarm brush is burning off of Austin and Weaver Roads, south of Brawley (Imperial County) in California, that started earlier this afternoon.

COMMAND NAME(S)

With all of the confusing wildfire names, Social Media is reporting this fire as the CARTER FIRE but they are also using WEAVER FIRE and RIVER BOTTOM FIRE.  To make it easier since there appears to be no PIO available, we will just keep it simple and call it the CARTER FIRE.  For all intent and purpose, we will use all three hashtags when posting on our own Social Media channels which are @nwfireblog (Twitter & Facebook) and nwfireblog (Instagram).

CURRENT STATUS

The fire has been reported as 200 acres destroyed with an 8% containment status.

Four air tankers were deployed via Hemet, California.

Seattle Firefighters Battle Weeks of Large Fire Incidents

March and April has been a very long and busy month already for Seattle Firefighters and it does not appear to be slowing down any time soon.

I don’t know about you but there seems to be a pattern of fires breaking out spontaneously, or perhaps not but we won’t say.  However, there appears to be more and more fires breaking out in abandoned structures in the same general area, but don’t take it from us.  Social Media posters are also noticing the same fire trends.

Here are some fires that have lit up Seattle today and in the past weeks.

APRIL 4, 2020 | SATURDAY

On Saturday (today) morning, a full  response  was sent into action via  the Seattle Fire Alarm Center at 0518 hours,  sending a large number of Seattle firefighters  and assets to an abandoned building located in the 800 block of North 50th Street off of Aurora Avenue North.

Responding units were: E9, B6, E31, L9, A25, AIR10, B4, DEP1, E17, E18, E21, L6, L8, M17, M44, MAR5, REHAB1, SAFT2, STAF10, E16, E20, E22, L1, L8.

Firefighters fought it from the exterior side, an obvious defensive fire .  Using hose lines and Ladder pipe operations, water was sent through the partially collapsed roof over the fire building.  It was deemed  too dangerous for them to enter the interior of the structure during fire suppression activities.

US Navy Medical Facilities Arrive in New York, California

New York and California

The United States Navy’s Comfort, a Military Sealift Command hosital ship has arrived to New York City on Sunday, March 29th around 1330 hours EDT (or 1030 PST – West Coast time) and guided in by tug boats to port.  This is in  response to the COVID19 virus response.

USNS Comfort arrives in New York on March 29, 2020

“…our nation, specifically the people of New York, have requested our assistance and we are ready to respond.” – USNS Capt. Patrick Amerbach, CO, Medical Treatment Facility aboard the Comfort.

The facility will be used for non-COVID19 infected patients, which will provide a full array of medical care to include general surgeries, critical care and ward care for adults, while allowing shore-based civilian hospitals to focus on their medical care to the treatment of virus infected patients.

Comfort departed from the Naval Station in Norfolk, Virginia and has a crew of over 1,100 Navy medical personnel and support staff with over 70 civil service mariners on board.  The Comfort is a converted San Clemente-class supertanker, that was delivered to the Navy’s Miltary Sealift Command on December 1, 1987 and is one of two Mercy-class hospital ships.

A second USNS ship, Mercy arrived in Los Angeles, California on March 27, 2020.

The Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) arrives in Los Angeles, March 27, 2020. Mercy deployed in support of the nation's COVID-19 response efforts, and will serve as a referral hospital for non-COVID-19 patients currently admitted to shore-based hospitals. This allows shore base hospitals to focus their efforts on COVID-19 cases. One of the Department of Defense's missions is Defense Support of Civil Authorities. DoD is supporting the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the lead federal agency, as well as state, local and public health authorities in helping protect the health and safety of the American people.

The Comfort  and Mercy are operated, navigated and maintained by a crew of civil service mariners working for the US Navy’s Military Sealift Command.

Washington State was due to have the Mercy arrive to Seattle, but POTUS redirected it to Los Angeles, California instead.   Washington State is receiving assistance from local Military resources.

A field hospital is being set-up at Seattle’s Century Link to take care of those with non-COVID19 medical needs which will free up local health facilities.  Another facilty is being erected in Shoreline as more cases break out across the State.

The Governor of Washington State issued a Stay at Home. Stay Safe. Mandate for all non-essential employees on March 23, 2020.

We cannot thank the men and women on these two ships for taking time from their own families to help care for the sick while local Cities are dealing with the COVID virus spreading like wildfire.

This is a godsent gift to Cities and their residents who will benefit from overflow of regular people with regular medical needs that are unrelated to the virus outbreak.  I think, we can say wholeheartedly that we speak for the residents of where these ships are arriving to, that we all will be eternally grateful.
