“Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well-trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely…I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking” – General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander #dday #honor #remember

Last week Academy 58 put in the work on the #VCFD burn props running scenario after scenario preparing for their week of “ride outs” in the field. 

This week all academy 58 recruits are riding alongside firefighters in the field learning first hand how to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. After this week they’ll return back to the academy for graduation and then they’ll be assigned to engine and truck companies during probation. 

It’s during this probationary period that your firefighters are tested daily, physically and mentally trained, and properly mentored on how to be successful in this career. 

This isn’t their last week to ask questions about the job, it’s a career of constant learning. However after this week they’ll be relied upon by their companies and the public to do the best job possible. 

Good luck 58!

Get out there and train! E41 testing out the TFT Blitzfire portable monitor, this new tool is making its way throughout the department for some R&D. Our training division leads the charge in bringing new equipment to the field & it’s your firefighters that put it to the test! 

This piece of equipment hooks up to the end of a hose line allowing a single firefighter to stretch the hose, carry the equipment, and start flowing water seamlessly. In under 2 minutes there could be 500 gallons of water flowing, unattended, so our firefighters can perform other important tasks.

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, where we recognize those in an extremely thankless job. Our dispatch center dubbed, Ventura, dispatch all fire and EMS responses for us in #VenturaCounty 

They answer the call and get the wheels rolling in order to try and save someone’s life, often without ever knowing the outcome. Their training, professionalism and passion for the job are heard everyday. 

Thank you for answering the call day and night. We know it’s not easy hearing someone experience their worst day, let alone gather enough information to get them the right help. Without you we couldn’t do it!

Also thank you B-Shift for sending in the group photo ! 📸

The driver and only occupant made it safely out of the vehicle, however from this photo that might not be your first assumption. 

Engine 45, 47 & Quint 44 responded to this semi truck on fire in #SimiValley

Firefighters acted quickly pulling multiple hose lines and knocked down the fire within a couple minutes. There are a lot of factors to consider with this call such as: location of the occupants, roadway safety, water source and securing a loaded semi that was going uphill. 

All these hazards are taken care of within minutes of firefighters getting on scene. Please make sure when you see us responding to an incident to pull over to the right in a safe location & slow down and give plenty of space to those working on scene.

Happy International Women’s Day!

It’s a day to recognize women in history who are trailblazers in their own field and the women who help make up Ventura County Fire are no different! 

We don’t need to look far to highlight women within our agency as women make up every part of #VCFD from Dispatchers, Human Resources, EMS Nurses, Fire Investigators, Tactical Paramedics, and Firefighters. 

Hard work and dedication goes without question and for that we celebrate you. #InternationalWomensDay

Here are your #VenturaCountyFirefighters from Crew 11 & 12, our wildland fire control workers, taking a break from the fire line to document the hard work the crews put in this fire season.  

There are limitless ways for you to become a firefighter but one GREAT path is that of our Fire Control Workers. If you get hired on seasonally you have the opportunity to earn a permanent position in the wildland division. Starting here you’ll gain knowledge of the fire service, wildland firefighting, and get to learn about our agency from the inside. 

A large portion of the recruits for our fire academies come from these two crews. They prove their ability to work hard and it pays off in the end. Whatever way you come to us we’ll train to you and welcome you to the family, but putting in the work is on you!

Our spotlight today is on our Honor Guard. They represent all of us at VCFD in the finest light during formal awards, parades, promotions, graduations and memorials. These members choose to be apart of a centuries old tradition of honoring our members, participating in civic events and honoring the fallen. 

Our Honor Guard members train in different elements of drill and ceremony. This consists of marching, flag etiquette, and for planned events throughout the year. Many of our members who participate in the Honor Guard have also served our country in the military and their continued service showcases their commitment to be apart of something bigger than themselves. These members find a calling in tradition and service to others.

Let’s congratulate another promotion! Captain Johnathan Tolle, currently assigned as our COVID Officer in the EMS division.

He has served throughout the county from fire stations 43, 32, 36, 34, and Air Unit as a full time Crew Chief. After serving the county for nine years as a firefighter/paramedic, we are happy to now watch him serve as a captain. 

Beyond his normal duties, Captain Tolle has served on our air unit and apparatus cadres. These separate cadres are made up of firefighters who take time away from their normal schedule to help keep the wheels rolling within that specialty. The air unit cadre develops the training for the aviation unit, flight paramedics, crew chief, and search & rescue teams who work either full time or as a collateral assignment. He is also a part of the apparatus cadre, which has designed our future medic squads being added to the fleet. 

We congratulate you on your promotion and wish you the best of luck ! - L1364

Today we’d like to highlight our Firefighter/Paramedics and their critical role in the EMS system and their dedication to providing the communities they serve the highest level of care possible. Your Ventura County Firefighters provide prehospital care as EMTs (BLS) or as paramedics (ALS). 

We specialize in a multitude of different fields and being a paramedic is absolutely another speciality one can obtain after getting hired or have prior to applying. Most come to us with prior experience or they voluntarily sign up to go to paramedic school after probation. Schooling in total consists of a year of classroom learning, hospital rotations and a field internship. 

Beyond this training our firefighters in Ventura County “Upgrade” from a level I to a level II paramedic by working under the direct supervision of a senior Firefighter-Paramedic. Earning the status of a level II Medic allows that individual to work as the sole paramedic with an Engineer & Captain (EMTs). 

Firefighter-paramedics have all the normal responsibilities of a firefighter with the added responsibility of providing advanced life support to the public. This consist of medical intubation, starting IVs, pushing/handling of narcotics etc... After being a qualified paramedic they are able to work in the aviation unit, Tactical Emergency Medicine, squads and the list goes on. 

We are extremely fortunate to have these members on our team when those critical calls go out. Our Firefighter-Paramedics are placed throughout the county between BLS VCFD fire stations and the location/distance of paramedic ambulances.

“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.
Let’s congratulate our newest promotion of the year! First up Captain Steve Chandler, Currently assigned to Truck-54 in Camarillo.

He has served throughout the county from fire stations: 41, 26, 33, 44, 43, 28 & 46. After serving the county for 14 years from the rank of firefighter to engineer we are happy to now watch him serve as a captain. 

Beyond his normal duties, Captain Chandler has served on our auto extrication and S.C.B.A cadres. These separate cadres are made up of firefighters who take time away from their normal schedule to help keep the wheels rolling. Our auto extrication or Auto X cadre teaches our trainees how to properly secure vehicles that have been in accidents and how to use the “jaws of life” to cut patients out of cars. The S.C.BA ( Self contained breathing apparatus) cadre also teaches our newest recruits how to operate and become familiar using our equipment used in firefighting operations. They also provide training and inspections on equipment throughout the department.

We congratulate you on your promotion and wish you the best of luck ! - L1364

Today your Ventura Co. Firefighters had the opportunity to take a staff ride to the Cory Iverson memorial. These staff rides are an opportunity for firefighters, engineers, captains and fire chiefs to learn about the horrible incidents that take the lives of our firefighters. We could read from a PowerPoint of all the mistakes, accidents, and near mishaps. 

However it’s important to create a human connection for brand new firefighters to the most senior fire chiefs. Your firefighters walk the path of the fallen and take a deeper look into what happened that day. Having the ability to participate in these staff rides provide such an important learning lesson to not have history repeat itself and helps create a closer connection to our fallen brothers and sisters. 

Linked to our story is the Iverson Foundation, please take a look.

As we start off the New Year we would like to welcome 29 new Firefighter Trainees and wish them the best of luck on their 20 week fire academy. 

They start next week in Fire Academy 58 and will be welcomed into the fire family with open arms. Although we welcome our newest addition into L1364 and add to our firefighter ranks, it’s up to every individual to prove their worth, show some grit, and endure the hardships that come with starting a career in the fire service. 

As they start their journey we’ll make sure to introduce them all and show you their progress. This photo is from a previous academy and takes place during the “Ladders” portion, where recruits learn the in and outs of ladder use on the fire ground. This can be a tough time for recruits physically and mentally. However, this photo captures about 30 seconds of laughter and surprise when the fire ground sang happy birthday to another recruit as she waved her arms like a conductor of a orchestra. 

We look forward to these moments with our newest recruits. Get ready 58...

On a large residential structure fire you can see Medic Rescue Engine 40 flowing water from the top of the ladder during defensive operations ~ Circa 2008 #tbt

#WildlandWednesday 

Dozer 12 🇺🇸

During fire season our dozer operators stay extremely busy with their work on fighting wildland fires. However the rest of the year has an “Off season”. While they use their heavy equipment to build or improve our training grounds, they still remain ready for emergency operations. Flood responses, debris removal and overhaul are just some of the calls our dozer operators respond too.
