Engine 1 Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness!

  

Fairbanks Fire goes PINK:The Fairbanks Firefighters Association, IAFF L1324, has partnered with the Breast Cancer Detection Center (BCDC) of Alaska to heighten the awareness of the everyday battle being waged against breast cancer locally and across our nation. This year FFA has arranged for the Fairbanks Fire Department’s “Engine 1”, the busiest fire engine in the interior of Alaska, to be colored pink for 30 days to raise awareness of the fight against breast cancer. The University of Alaska Fairbanks Fire Engine 12 will also support the campaign with pink window tinting and ribbons. For IAFF members, “going pink”, is a way to support women in their fight against cancer.
 
Last year the Fairbanks Firefighters raised over $5,000 for the BCDC by losing our blue duty shirts for two weeks and donning pink. During that time we sold over 500 of the pink Fairbanks Fire Department shirts as a fundraiser. This year FFA wanted to do something more visible to demonstrate their support of this cause and help raise awareness of the struggle many women face right here in our community. Engine 1, wrapped in pink and displaying the signature pink ribbon, will be used as normal to respond to fires, Emergency Medical (EMS) calls, motor vehicle accidents and any other emergency responses during this time. The engine will also be used for fire prevention and other routine events.Last year, in a nationwide survey of reporting fire departments, FFD E-1 ranked in the top 60 busiest fire companies in the US. It is stationed at the Fairbanks Fire Department Station 1 at 1101 Cushman St.
 
The FFA is proud to be supporting this worthy cause. The FairbanksBreastCancerDetectionCenter wants to make mammography available to all regardless of their ability to pay. Their mission is to increase awareness of the survivability of breast cancer and the benefits of early detection by delivering screening services and education throughout Alaska. They have provided over 29,000 mammograms since 1976.
 
Special thanks to AutoTrim Design for a generous donation making this project possible. We also thank Fire Chief Warren Cummings for allowing us to “go pink”. No taxpayer funds were used for this awareness campaign, all funding was provided by the Fairbanks Firefighters Union, IAFF L1324, and the BCDC.
 
This is one of many local charities supported by the Fairbanks Firefighters Association including Muscular Dystrophy (Fill-the-Boot), St. Baldricks, United Way, HIPOW, Boys and Girls Club, and Fairbanks Counseling and Adoption.

Update- April 2011

 Local 1324 signs first contract between the paid staff of the University Fire Department and the University of Alaska.   

As previously posted, the paid staff of the Univeristy Fire Department has become part of the International Association of Firefighters, Local 1324.  After negotiations recently concluded between the Univerity of Alaska and representatives from L1324, a final contract was recently ratified by both parties.  Today the official contract signing occured, marking the first ever collective bargaining agreement for the paid Captains and Battalion Chiefs of the University of Alaska Fire Department.  Hopefully this will be the beginning of a long and healthy joint labor-management relationship which benefits the employer, employees and the citizens they serve.

 

Alaska Proffesional Firefighters annual conference comes to Fairbanks!

The annual PFFA conference is being held here in Fairbanks the week of May 9th. Firefighters who are part of the Alaska Proffessional Firefighters Association, which is comprised of IAFF Union firefighters from across the State, will be meeting to conduct business over several days.  Representatives from Kotzebue, Fairbanks, Juneau, North Pole, University and Anchorage will be attending.

L1324 response to recent Fairbanks Daily News Miner Headline:

Fairbanks Firefighters, L1324, take exception to the Daily News-Miner's linked headline. This headline was posted on April 19th, 2011.  FFD did not respond to this fire as they infer. That we "held back" from fighting the fire is misleading and only fuels a controversial issue. A more accurate title would be "Trailer burns in unprotected area" and then proceed with the facts of the story. The editors should correct this immediately online and print a correction.
 
This headline places the FFA and FFD in a negative light, which has nothing to do with the facts of the story. We would gladly respond and extinguish this, or any, fire in our response area. The City has offered this service to LakeView Terrace many times when previous similar situations occurred. FFA is sorry for the homeowners loss and is glad no one was injured.
 
 
Busy Spring for FFD

 

Spring has arrived and is keeping FFD crews hopping:   

FFD Crews have been busy now that spring has arrived.  Follow the link below to a Daily News Miner Article on recent fires.  

http://www.newsminer.com/view/full_story/12425945/article-Firefighters-battle-multiple-house-fires--in-Fairbanks?instance=home_news_window_left_top_2

Please drive carefully.  With the roads melting and becomming wet during the days, and then freezing at night, driving can be hazardous.  We hope everyone drives carefully and arrives at their destination safely.

A spring update will be posted shortly along with new pictures.  The update will cover activities from the end of winter and leading into the spring and summer months.  Your Fairbanks Firefighters have had a very busy winter for responses.  We are also going to be posting information on staffing levels and other important issues.  Thanks for your patience.
