Firefighter Lyons is preparing to take the Acting Engineer test at the end of his firefighter probation. This will allow him to work in the Engineer rank when needed. The hydrant seen is called a twin because of its pair of 2.5” discharges. It’s not the best compared to standard hydrants that sports one if not two 4.5” discharges in addition to a 2.5” discharge.
💵🔥 A burning ATM withdrew a response from Engine 2, Engine 8, Engine 10, Truck 2 and Battalion 1. The fire was quickly extinguished. Ride along with Truck 2 as they check for fire extension with a thermal imager. You’ll notice minimal radio and face to face communication. There isn’t much to talk about when everyone has a predetermined assignment on arrival.
If you have an interview coming up or expect one shortly with the SRFD, please send us a DM. Your @santarosafirefighters are going to host a zoom meeting at 6pm this coming Monday where you can talk to some of us and ask questions, learn about the city, the SRFD and most importantly- what it’s like to work here. Due to the lack of ride alongs and station visits for the last two years we want to make sure you all understand how the SRFD works so you are better prepared for an interview. If you know someone thats going to interview please send this to them. Thanks 🤙
🔥🔥🚒🚒🧑🚒🧑🚒🧑🚒 Pics above: Engine 26 doing work on a structure fire off of Montgomery Dr in 2005. Engine 26 was a staffed type 1 engine operating alongside Engine 6 out of Sta. 6. In 2006 this rig and crew became Engine 10 when Sta. 10 was built and opened.
Ride along with Truck 2 as they cut a vent hole at fire just outside the city limits. Engine 2 and Engine 3 also responded. This was the second fire of the day where all three of these companies worked together 🧑🚒🧑🚒🧑🚒
Happy new year! After a one alarm fire at zero:dark thirty this morning, Engineer McCartney performs a Saturday check on Truck 2. These checks allow for small problems to be identified and corrected before they become an issue with the apparatus or the equipment it carries. It’s also another opportunity to sharpen operational proficiency 🧑🚒🧑🚒🧑🚒🧑🚒
Ride along with Engine 11 as they work with Engine 2, Engine 3 and Truck 2 to extinguish a burning detached garage this morning. One firefighter was injured and was taken to the hospital. He should be back in action shortly 💪
@nitro218 captured Engine 11 responding to a reported Tesla on fire. There was no fire but the crew wanted to talk to the owner. They thought pressing on the hood and knocking on other panels might get the car to text the owner that something was up 🤣. They showed up a few mins later but it was unclear if this trick worked.
Merry Christmas!! A big shoutout goes to our on duty crews keeping Santa Rosa safe today. Fires on Christmas Day are a sad reality. This vid captured your @santarosafirefighters doing work on Christmas morning in 1970.
Checkout these great shots of Santa Rosa taken by @nitro218 You’ll also see Engine 11 handling a vehicle accident on northbound 101 this afternoon. We appreciate it when peeps slow down when they see our engines and trucks stopped in the roadway with our lights on 🤙. See how the engine is parked a ways back at an angle? That’s so a stay vehicle bounces off big red and not off one of your @santarosafirefighters
@2008sap spotted Truck 2 accessing a roof to check for the source of smoke in a building. This vid was from July and this reserve apparatus has since been replaced. It’s now for sale and will not be missed by your @santarosafirefighters. By Felicia ✌️
