Today we remember Deputy Zackari Parrish. You will not be forgotten. Rest easy Brother.
Douglas County Deputy Zackari Parrish, 29-year-old husband and father was 'eager to serve,' the sheriff said. He was shot and killed this morning while responding to a call in Highlands Ranch. 4 other law enforcement officers were injured, as well as 2 civilians. We will always have our Family in Blues back. Thank you PIO Hurst for the picture.
Tonight at midnight, as we ring in the New Year, we have the honor of bringing in our Brothers and Sisters from Local 3027 into the Local 2164 family. As of January 1st 2018, stations 61, 62 and 63 will become SMFR stations. We are looking forward to our future together.
Praying for our Brothers and Sisters at DCSO this morning as they lost a member and more are wounded.
We are saddened to hear of the of the line of duty death of Cal Fire Engineer Cory Iverson. Our hearts go out to his wife, daughter & unborn child.
Last night Local 2164 signed into place our first contract agreement. We are excited to see the future and strength of our local and department to grow!
Second fire of the night for C-Shift.
From PIO Hurst——-* Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives * At 01:55 a.m. on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, South Metro Firefighters responded to a reported house fire in the 10000 block of East Powers Drive in Arapahoe County. 9 Firefighters assigned to Engine 31, Medic 31 and Tower 32 arrived at the same time; they found smoke showing from the front door of a two-story house with the family standing outside. A 360 degree walk-around was quickly completed, a hose line was stretched inside and crews searched the structure. The house was filled with dangerous smoke from a fire burning in the basement which was controlled by 02:08 a.m. All searches of the residence were clear, no fire extension was found and the incident is under investigation. A total of 31 personnel from Stations 31, 33, 34, 35, 42 as well as on-call support staff responded. The family woke up to smoke alarms sounding which led to the discovery of a fire, a call to 911 and the safe evacuation of everyone outside. Remember, smoke alarms should be tested regularly, batteries changed twice per year and completely replaced by the expiration date (typically every 10 years). These devices literally save lives.
We hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving today. Here are a couple tips to keep you safe today.
‘And duties as assigned…’ recently during a cut gas line, crews had to shut down part of a road but the crews made sure that the homeowners received their packages in a safe and timely manner. #FireDepartment #FD #Fire #Rescue #Brotherhood #IAFF #medic #EMT #colorado #smfr #southmetro #EMT #medic #union #southmetrofire #southmetrofirerescue #medic #whatcanbrowndoforyou
Remember when you change your clocks it’s the perfect time to change the batteries in your fire alarms and CO detectors.
