Ride along with Engine 1 as they respond to a fully involved travel trailer that spread to the exterior of a near by home. Truck 1 had to cut three fences so crews could access the scene and Engine 1 stretched a 400’ attack line to reach the seat of the fire. Four engines and one ladder truck responded. Five dogs did not survive the fire and one Firefighter received a minor burn injury. @santarosapdpoa assisted with traffic control in the area 🤝
New rig = new training opportunities.
Seriously though, you all chimed in on what the city should do with the PG&E settlement money and the SRFD and city hall listened. This brand new type 3 wildland engine is the first of many new equipment additions that will allow your @santarosafirefighters to better protect our community 💪
We had to throw in a mandatory Taylor Mountain Selfie

This afternoon, your @santarosafirefighters along with @kenwood_firefighters, @amr_social, and @chpgoldengate responded to a vehicle accident which required extraction in area of the 6200 block of Highway 12....
The morning of September 11th, 2001 343 @fdny firefighters made the ultimate sacrifice and since then we have lost many more due to the illnesses related to their work in the rescue and recovery efforts on that day. Today marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we will #neverforget. 🇺🇸
@santarosafirefighters Captain Don Ricci (@dons_nose_art) started this painting the night of the event and completed it a week later. After completion, he created museum quality lithographs and sold them to raise money for the @FDNY Widows and Children’s fund. Captain Ricci, along with 19 other @santarosafirefighters flew over to New York to deliver the first check, a total of $87,000 to the @fdny_ufa at Rescue 1 in Manhattan. The group of @santarosafirefighters spent a ton of time at ground zero while it was still smoldering. Captain Ricci stated “it was quite an experience to be standing on debris that used to be 110-story building. Was sobering and heart wrenching knowing fellow firefighters were still in the rubble beneath your feet. Remains of 2 were recovered in the period of time we were supporting the crews at Ground Zero. Just hope what the @santarosafirefighters did in raising the funds, helped even the tiniest bit for the families of the fallen.”

Yesterday your @santarosafirefighters were dispatched for a reported structure fire in the area of Piner Road and Coffey Lane in District 3. Between a quick response and a aggressive fire attack, the fire was contained to the exterior storage shed and only minimal damage to the siding of the gas station.

Today, your @santarosafirefighters welcomed the three newest lateral Firefighter-Paramedics to the Family. Pictured left to right; FF Ruben Alvarez, FF Darrin Hill, and FF Matthew Stobba have successfully completed the Santa Rosa Fire Department 6-week lateral academy ran by Training Captain Musgrove. Congratulations Academy 21-3!! 🔥...
Ride along with @santarosafirefighters Engine 11 as they fight a structure fire with @soco_local_1401 in Windsor. The garage and attic of this two story home were well involved with fire on arrival and were actually ignited by a separate fully involved building nearby (visible at the very end of the vid).

Engine 11 and Engine 7582 were captured setting up for fire attack on a structure fire in Windsor this morning. @santarosafirefighters and @soco_local_1401 work closely on scene of emergencies whether it’s a nearby structure fire or strike team in a community hundreds of miles away.
These four firefighters spent the last 14 days defending homes and working on perimeter control on the #dixiefire. Four new @santarosafirefighters will carry on Engine 25’s Task Force assignment. 🤜🤛 to the crews filling all the extra shifts created back home behind Engine 25 and OES Engine 363’s mutual aid deployments and the extra red flag staffing. And a shout out to the significant others helping hold down the forts at home 😎
Truck 1 A-Shift spent the day teaching our three newest @santarosafirefighters during their six week academy. The 35’ long extension ladder can access the roof of a three story building. The roof ladder they are carrying up has special hooks that allows them to secure the ladder to the peak of the roof and then climb up even the steepest roofs. This is all done to perform vertical ventilation.
