VCPFA is proud to endorse Jeff Gorell for Ventura County Supervisor, D2.  Jeff is a former State Assemblyman who has always supported firefighters and their families. He served on the Woolsey Fire Task Force to identify and adopt best practices to help safeguard communities from brushfires and protect the firefighters fighting them. His extensive experience serving as the City of Los Angeles Deputy Mayor for Homeland Security and Public Safety, a criminal prosecutor, and State Legislature demonstrate his commitment to public safety and the community. Jeff is also a Navy veteran, and as they say in the USN, "every sailor is a firefighter".  

Join us in supporting Jeff Gorell for Supervisor.
Before the day is over we'd like to wish those that "keep the wheels turning" in an office a Happy Administrative Professionals Day! (pictured are the 3 responsible for our office at yesterday's golf tournament)

We'd also like to wish our Admin Assistant, Amber well as this is her last week with us. Amber worked for VCPFA for a number of years and re-joined our team a year ago while on her extended stay back in California. Her family will be leaving again soon, as their time here is almost up and their new home will be completed. Thank you for enthusiastically jumping right back into your role like you never left. You will be missed (again)!

VCPFA wishes you and your loved ones a safe, joyful and healthy holiday season.
It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Fire Control Worker Zachary Gregson. He has succumbed to his injuries sustained from an off-duty motorcycle accident that occurred on July 15th, 2021. 

Zachary served on the Ventura County Fire Department’s Hand Crew with his final assignment as Dozer Swamper for Dozer-12. He leaves behind a loving family, a strong group of friends, and a grateful fire department. 

Zachary dedicated his life to helping others by fighting fires. In his last days, that spirit of service to others continued as he has donated his vital organs in a final act of selflessness. It is the family’s hope that his generous spirit will live on through this gift of life.

Thank you to everyone who has supported, donated, and prayed for Zachary and his family over these last few days. We ask that you please continue to keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Happy Independence Day 🇺🇸  from your Ventura County Firefighters ______________________

Walking Into fire season like... ⬆️

As the weather seems to get warmer and warmer, your firefighters are gearing up for the challenges ahead. 

You’ll notice “Strike teams” of type 1  & type 3 engines (Teams of 5 engines with 3 to 4 person staffing) being deployed in and out of Ventura County to major fires. You’ll also see in future posts our members that deploy on federal and state wildland management teams, alongside with firefighters that deploy as a single resource. So stay tuned for future stories/posts. 

With these deployments your Ventura County Firefighters will back fill fire stations as we send members out to these incidents. This profession is a calling to serve, and we’ll do just that!

“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
Today our brothers and sisters from LaCo Fire and the families hurt by this tragedy grieve for the loss of a firefighter and the serious injuries of another.   Please take the time to visit their social media pages and help in their campaigns to assist their families. @lacountyfd @iafflocal1014 @lacountyfirefighters

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
