4 Years and Still On Fire for Public Safety

It has been four busy years since we created our online Public Safety publication that has grown more and more by the day, weeks and into the years.  We Thank every single one of you for joining us on our journeys going Fire Chasing to visiting facilities quietly snapping you all in action.  We are still on fire for “Everything Fire, EMS, 1st responders and Law Enforcement”.  It’s just how we roll here in the Northwest.

Copy of Smoke on the Horizon

We cannot get away from this image as we lay witness to the fierce fire taking over  brush  and fields ,within seconds. and working to destroy a lifetime of hard work and dedication.  #RimrockFire [in the Douglas County Complex Fire]

A lot has happened in 2015.  Here’s a recap:

FIRESTORMS

Fire Season came early and it seemed like all of Washington State at one point or another was ablaze and we heard your stories of responding via locally, State, Federal, City, County and across the Globe as mutual aid.

  • State of Alaska had many fires burning across thousands of acres and even scorching part of Canadian territories.
  • Eastern Washington was like a firestorm and that’s an understatement. Beloved Lake Chelan and other hot travel destinations saw their revenue burning up.  Many homes were lost, as were businesses and communities wiped out.
  • California saw alot and is still reeling from the drought that has brought many fires including arsons, all across their State bringing heartache, hundreds of evacuations, unbelieveable Fire Images taken by some increadible talented Photographers.

We know we are forgetting some States and fire incidents.  We are just highlighting a few in between.  The Fire Season was so busy, we were literally running from call to call and trying to keep up.  We knew that was out of the question.

In the end, we were able to catch our breath and tweet, writing and post a few stories and major events in between.

FIRE CHASING

We had several opportunities to put our Fire Photography skills to the test by capturing several fires, fire suppression tools at work and the personnel on the ground working tirelessly as they jump from one fire to the next.

We were on scene at the Highway 28 Fire, Rimrock Fire, I-90 Fire and several others.

STATION VISITS

While you all were very busy preparing to be deployed as strike teams to area fires, we were quietly photographing your fire suppression tools, stations and some of you flying those great flying machines during incidents.  Next time, we hope to hang with you in person and say, ‘hello’ as we are passing through.

GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN | 4 Seattle Firefighters Remembered

Tragedy struck at the Mary Pang warehouse incident  that  occurred on January 5, 1995, an arson-caused fire – that was deemed to be a well-played out plan by the owner’s son for insurance money.  He had hoped that  if it burned down, he would reap a large payout.

As it turned out, many people and Officials were aware of this planned attack on a Seattle business but the day to carry out the arsonist’s intentions came and went.  Soon afterwards after the intended date, the fire eventually took place and the intensity was well publicized.  It was also the day, the arsonist murdered four great Seattle Firemen and destroying hundreds of lives and those who were deeply impacted by their losses to their immediate families, Fire Department, fellow Fire Brothers and Sisters, communities and those indirectly.

I wrote a short story, Seattle Mourn from the viewpoint of a fictious reporter but based upon actual Fire Investigative reports, media news and publications, eyewitness accounts and listening to audio coverage as the fire incident unfolded on that horrendous day.  As a former Firefighter REHAB volunteer, I can only imagine the intensity, the smells, the sounds and the large number of Fire personnel arriving on scene.  This story was inspired by these amazing men – Lt. Walter Kilgore, Lt. Gregory Shoemaker, Firefighters James Brown and Randall Terlicker who lost their lives on this tragic day and published in an anthology, Felons, Flames and Ambulance Rides released July 2013.

Their lives will be forever remembered and what they stood for.  Please take a little moment and say a prayer remembering those who are still greatly affected by their loss by their families, friends, Fire brothers and sisters.  We Will Never Forget.
