Killexams : Danbury promotes third-generation firefighter to lieutenant

DANBURY — The city’s fire department welcomed a new fire lieutenant after city officials confirmed the promotion of James Gagliardo from the position of communications coordinator.

A member of the Danbury Fire Department since 2007, Gagliardo grew up in Brewster, N.Y. and is a third-generation firefighter. After graduating high school in 2003, he started volunteering for Putnam Lake Fire Department where he serves as deputy chief today, in addition to fulfilling his duties in Danbury.

“Your resume speaks for itself,” said Mayor Dean Esposito before City Council members voted on Thursday to confirm his promotion.

“You are a citizen beyond citizens to do what you do, everyday getting paid here as a paid firefighter and going home and doing the same as a volunteer, and I am very confident with you moving forward.”

“I just want to congratulate you and thank you for everything that you do and the entire fire department but you are a standout and congratulations, sir,” the mayor added.

Gagliardo, a self described “radio guy,” is a well-known throughout the city and across the state line in New York for installing a drone program at the Danbury Fire Department. With more than 200 hours of flight time, he is regularly called on by the Danbury Police Department and other agencies in the surrounding area and even across state lines in New York — primarily for search and rescue operations, in addition to providing over-watch for fire and SWAT team operations.

He holds an associate degree in fire science from Columbia Southern University and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in fire administration and emergency management. He also holds a number of certifications and has received awards throughout his career including the “Danbury Fire Department and State of Connecticut Exchange Club Firefighter of the Year in 2021,” according to a statement issued by Mayor Esposito.

The newly promoted lieutenant declined the opportunity to address the City Council following the award but told a reporter the hardest part of his current role is “going home,” adding his promotion means he will switch back to a 24 hour-on, 72-hour-off shift.

“This job is the best job in the state,” Gagliardo said.

Killexams : Firefighters, bulldozers battle fire at recycling facility in Vidor Tuesday

VIDOR, Texas — Emergency crews worked and successfully made sure a fire that started at a recycling facility does not spread. 

It happened at the J-3 Metals Recycling Center, which is inside the county line. The Jasper County Sheriff's Office got the call a little after 11 a.m. about a "very large trash fire." 

Employees were able to leave the facility before firefighters arrived.

Orange County Emergency Services District #1 Chief Robert Smith, whose department was called to assist, believes a large pile of trash was burning out the facility when it got out of hand. Evadale Fire, Kirbyville Fire, Buna Fire, Forestry Service and Roganville Fire Departments all responded. 

The Forestry Service brought in bulldozers to help put out the fire. 

This is a developing story. We will update with more if and when we receive more confirmed information.

Killexams : Why a Fort Worth Firefighter Who Died of Brain Cancer is Considered a ‘Line-of-Duty' Death

The Fort Worth Fire Department is honoring a longtime firefighter who died of brain cancer linked to his job.

Engineer David Greene, 56, died Monday.

To his friends and family, he was known for his easygoing personality.

"He's somebody who would talk with anybody and he didn't know an enemy,” said Lt. David Childs who knew Greene since they both joined the department in the early 1990s.

They both worked together at Station 39 on the city's southwest side.

"David was known as the car guy, mechanic guy, that liked to tell stories,” Childs remembered.

One day in January, Childs noticed Greene getting confused, mixing up words and even taking the wrong turn to calls.

"Suddenly he just didn't get it,” Childs said.

Greene saw a doctor who wanted to do a brain scan.

"And they did and it came back that he had a mass in his left frontal lobe and it just blew my mind,” Childs said.

It was cancer.

In the next few months, they tried everything including chemotherapy and surgery, but the mass kept growing.

"They asked the doctor, when is our next appointment?” Childs said. “He goes, there's not one."

There was nothing else the doctors could do.

That was in June.

He died on Monday.

"It's your friend, your brother, your family. I mean all of us are hurting in the department,” Childs said.

Greene's death is considered a result of his work. "It's a line-of-duty death. He got sick from doing what we do,” Childs said.

It's called occupational cancer.

"Many more people are dying from occupational illness than from actual structural firefighting duty. You know, a flashover of a fire, a collapse of a building,” Fort Worth Fire Chief Jim Davis said.

Studies have shown firefighters are far more likely to get certain types of cancer than the general public because of their exposure to hazardous smoke and chemicals.

In fact, occupational cancer is blamed on 70% of firefighter deaths and is now the leading cause of death for firefighters, according to the International Association of Firefighters.

Fort Worth has seen three firefighters die of job-related cancer since 2019.

"It used to be the profession of firefighting was a dirty profession and it was cool to be dirty and it was expected,” Davis said. “Well today we're trying to treat it more like a hazardous materials event and we're trying to say, ‘Listen, clean is cool.’"

Davis said the department is doing everything it can to prevent cancer in firefighters, including focusing on cleanliness, early detection and physical fitness.

The Fort Worth Fire Department has partnered with UT Southwestern to study and better understand the link between firefighting and cancer. The city has also dedicated more than $1.2 million to the mitigation of cancer for firefighters.

Greene leaves his wife of 17 years, Gwyn, and their two beloved bulldogs, Bella and Bentley.

Childs will deliver the eulogy at Greene’s funeral on Wednesday.

The two last saw each other about two weeks ago when they took one last ride together in Greene's fancy car.

"He was just a good-hearted guy. I'm going to miss him,” Childs said.

Killexams : 'She'll have a little piece of my heart forever': Firefighter rescues little girl in Florida during Hurricane Ian

The girl in the photo is one of 26 who were rescued by the St. Augustine Fire Department during Hurricane Ian.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — Many St. Augustine first responders are back home with their families after a very busy week. The St. Augustine Fire Chief says they had 26 rescues during Hurricane Ian.

One St. Augustine firefighter, Hardus Oberholzer, was part of many of those dangerous missions.

He says the department has a saying: "The more risk, the more you save."

He said he was a part of so many rescues, he really didn’t have a specific count – but at least 10 to 15. 

“I knew they were just kind of racking up," said Oberholzer. "They were almost on a waiting list. We finished one, we dropped them off, turned around, and went off.”

The calls picked up during the Thursday high tide as water pushed up driveways and into homes.

“They were all kind of the same," said Oberholzer. "People, they got caught, they didn’t think it was going to be as bad, then at the end of the day, they realized they needed to get out.”

One particular rescue hit close to home for the father of two.

A fellow firefighter snapped a powerful picture during the storm, of Oberholzer rescuing a little girl over on the island side of the Bridge of Lions. 

The rescue was during the worst high tide, Thursday afternoon. Oberholzer walked through waist-deep water to get the young girl to safety.

Oberholzer says the family thought they’d be able to hunker down, but after seeing the water get mere inches from inside the home, called for help before the next high tide arrived in the middle of the night.

The girl is the same age as his youngest son. He says seeing her face is an experience that will stick with him for a while.

“She’ll have a little piece of my heart forever. It’s something in their eyes," he said. "When they truly are at their worst, we show up and have to be at our best every time. Something I’ll remember for the rest of my life and I hope they do too.”

Oberholzer says they had a massive highwater truck to work with, where he felt comfortable driving through up to six feet of water, so never feeling totally in danger, but nerve-racking nonetheless.

He certainly earned a day off with his family – trading in rescues for breaking down all the pillow forts that are scattered around the house.

Killexams : Chicago’s first firefighters entrance test since 2014 draws diverse pool, but rules have changed

More than 8,157 applicants — 57.7% of them Black and Hispanic, 15.7% women — have already applied to take Chicago’s first firefighters entrance test since 2014.

Testifying Friday at City Council budget hearings, Human Resources Commissioner Chris Owen said another 12,638 people have started an application but not finished.

The test will be only the fourth the department has administered in 44 years.

With additional recruiting events scheduled before the Oct. 17 application deadline, Owen said he’s “pretty sure we’re gonna get closer to the 20,000 number that we typically see” for a Chicago Fire Department entrance exam.

So far, the 8,157 applicants include: 6,747 males (82.7 percent); 1,281 females (15.7 percent) and 129 applicants who did not identify their gender.

The applicant breakdown so far: 2,677 (32.8%) are white; 2,077 are Black (25.4%); 2,632 are Hispanic (32.2%); 113 are Asian-Americans (1.3%).

Ald. Nicole Lee (11th), the first Chinese-American and second Asian American to serve on the council, said she was “really disturbed by the tiny number” of Asian Americans in the applicant pool.

“I’d like to see a bigger, more intentional plan around that. Clearly there are plans in other communities and this one’s obviously been overlooked at this point,” Lee said.

“Very disappointing because we have such a small number of firefighters within the department right now. And we need to be able to recruit new ones — especially with the language-access needs there are across the city.”

Last year, Annette Nance-Holt became the first woman to serve as fire commissioner in the 162-year history of the department.

She promptly vowed to diversify a department with a long, documented history of discrimination through “vigorous recruitment in communities of color,” outreach to high school students in “under-represented communities” and by scheduling an test no later than early 2022.

Well, better late than never.

The entrance test will be held in December, with plans for exams to be held every two years after that.

But Owen said the rules have changed to reduce the costs that made more frequent testing too expensive.

Instead of having all applicants take the test, the city will use a lottery to choose 4,500 exam-takers, with 80% of those spots reserved for Chicago residents.

If the lottery doesn’t produce an test pool with enough city residents, “you start pulling people in and pushing people out who aren’t city residents,” Owen said.

Budget Chair Pat Dowell (3rd) asked what happens if “everybody is male” after the 4,500 test-takers are chosen.

“We’re not explicitly allowed under the law to take that into account,” Owen said. “However, the goal again is to get as much diversity in the applicant pool as we possibly can. And we are seeing better diversity numbers than we have in the past with the recruitment campaign.”

The new approach is expected to save the city $3.5 million, making the ambitious goal of holding a firefighters entrance test every two years not only realistic, but achievable.

Administering smaller and more frequent tests will also pave the way for the city to “align the size of the applicant pool” to the Chicago Fire Department’s “actual hiring needs,” giving test-takers “more realistic expectations” about if and when they can expect to be hired, Owen said.

“We want to go out as frequently has possible. But, people can say, `You still have thousands and thousands of people on that list.’ We really needed to change this. Getting to a model where we’re posting every two years to keep this list fresh — in order to get there, we needed to [be] testing fewer people,” he said.

But that lottery-first approach did not sit well with Ald. Chris Taliaferro (29th), chairman of the council’s Committee on Public Safety. He called it “disadvantageous to the Black community and the Latino community.”

“If they signed up for the test, they should be given an opportunity to take the test. Let it be determined whether or not they can be firefighters or EMT’s based on their merit — not based on the lottery,” Taliaferro said.

Otherwise, “that eight-year wait becomes another two years — if the city does follow through on testing in another two years. I even have doubt about that.”

Killexams : Firefighter fired for testing positive for marijuana can proceed with lawsuit to get his job back

A Buffalo firefighter fired over his medical marijuana use can proceed with his legal action to get his job back, a state judge ruled Thursday, but the judge declined to immediately reinstate him as he requested.

State Supreme Court Justice Catherine Nugent Panepinto, who rejected the city's motion to dismiss the case, said she will continue reviewing arguments from each side before making a decision on whether Scott Martin can return to his job.

Firefighter Scott Martin was fired earlier this year because he tested positive for marijuana. He is a certified medical marijuana patient who uses cannabis to treat post-traumatic stress disorder and back pain.

Martin, a 12-year veteran with the Buffalo Fire Department, was fired from his job last year because he tested positive for marijuana. 

The 38-year-old firefighter who served with the Air Force in Iraq and Afghanistan said he is a certified medical marijuana patient who uses cannabis to treat post-traumatic stress disorder and back pain and that cannabis has greatly improved his health and well-being.

"If anything, I think it makes me a better firefighter, because I don’t have the issues like I did," Martin said after Thursday's court proceeding.

To treat his back pain, Martin said doctors prescribed him medication like the opioid OxyContin and later shots of Tramadol into his lower spine.

"Imagine getting an epidural every three or four months," he said. "I don’t get the injections anymore because of the medical marijuana. I’m not on any opiates anymore."

The city fired him after urine samples tested positive for marijuana metabolites based on the firefighter union's collective bargaining agreement. That agreement, however, hasn't been updated since medical marijuana was legalized in the state in 2014, said attorney David Holland, who represents Martin. 

Under the state's Compassionate Care Act, conditions that can be treated with cannabis should be considered disabilities, so firing him should be considered workplace discrimination, Holland said.

Attorney Michael Risman, who has been retained by the city, said the city was bound by the labor agreement with the firefighters' union.

"A firefighter who doesn't like a policy just can't change it," Risman said.

Risman also told the judge that Martin does not seem medically fit to be a firefighter again, a physically demanding job requiring carrying victims out of house fires, lifting hoses and driving large fire trucks. Risman cited the pension Martin now receives from the Veterans Administration. The only way to get such a pension is to be 65 years old or be permanently disabled, Risman said.

"I don't think anyone thinks he's able to return to work," Risman said.

Holland said Martin was entitled to received the pension 12 years ago for the injuries he suffered in combat but declined to take it while he worked as a firefighter.  

"I was gainfully employed. I didn’t need it," Martin said of the pension. "I did my job perfectly fine."

There is no complaint that Martin ever showed up to work impaired or was unfit for duty, Holland said.

Others in the Buffalo Fire Department use medical marijuana, Martin said.

When he was on the job, "I never used it at work. I did it the day before."

And it wasn't a secret, he said.

"My crew knew. My captain knew," he said.

Holland said protections offered under the state's medical marijuana law apply to Martin.

"The protections are intended for everyone," Holland said during the court hearing. "He should be reinstated today."

Risman contended the Compassionate Care Act did not apply to Martin as a city firefighter.

"If there's a job it shouldn't apply to, this is the one," Risman said.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The City of Houston and its firefighters are just months away from a final showdown over long running legal issues regarding pay and collective bargaining rights.

Friday morning, the Supreme Court of Texas combined two cases in which the City of Houston, the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association and the Houston Police Officers' Union disagree about how firefighter pay should be set.

One case questions collective bargaining; the other the legality of a 2018 voter-approved pay parity amendment known as Proposition B. When Prop B passed, it was to set firefighter pay at the same amounts as a similarly ranked police officer. The police officers' union sued to stop that.

Houston police officers, who have higher salaries than Houston firefighters, objected to linking their salaries to that of firefighters, who have negotiated their contracts in the past.

After years of fighting in court, it now appears this final showdown will decide the issue for the city. Oral arguments are set for November 29, 2022. A decision is likely to happen in early 2023.

If justices decide the cases in favor of the firefighters, they could be owed millions in raises and back pay. It is money the city has said in the past it cannot easily pay. It is likely that by the time a court decision is entered, current Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner will be in his final months as mayor.

It is unclear what would happen if the city or union prevails. Houston firefighters have been without a contract since June 2017. The city implemented raises without a new contract or collective bargaining in 2021.

UPDATE: The following statement from Houston City Attorney Arturo Michel was received after our deadline:

"Houston is pleased that the Texas Supreme Court has agreed to review Houston's challenge to the HPFFA-sponsored Prop B charter amendment, which requires that firefighters receive higher police pay while still working under firefighters' more favorable working conditions and receiving their more favorable pension benefits. Houston contends that the charter amendment contradicts, violates, and is thus preempted by Texas law, Texas Local Government Code Chapter 174, which outlines the bases for firefighter compensation, and does not include any reference to police compensation or working conditions. If preempted, the HPFFA-sponsored charter amendment would be void and unenforceable.Although briefed separately, the cases were consolidated for argument with Houston's pre-existing separation-of-powers challenge to the process by which impasses are resolved under the collective bargaining provisions of Texas law, Texas Local Government Code Section 174.252. In particular, Houston has asserted that there are limits on a Texas trial court's authority to resolve those impasses.Consolidation of these cases highlights that the HPFFA cannot have it both ways: it cannot seek strictly to enforce Chapter 174's state-law provisions, as it would do in the pre-existing constitutional lawsuit, yet claim in the HPFFA charter amendment lawsuit that the same Chapter 174 provisions can be easily overridden and openly violated by an HPFFA-sponsored local charter amendment, depending only upon under which law the firefighters receive more money. By contrast, there is no conflict in the City's position in the two cases because the separation of powers case and the Prop B preemption case address different legal issues."

Killexams : Full circle: Teen car crash survivor training to become firefighter 2 years after horrific accident

KATY, Texas (KTRK) -- In December 2020, a Tompkins High School football player fought for his life in the intensive care unit after a devastating crash. Now, two years later, he is aiming to help others.

Samuel "Sam" Mills was ejected from his vehicle on Dec. 26 after losing control and hitting a curb while driving home from his job at Chick-fil-A on Pin Oak Road.

According to the Fort Bend Sheriff's Office, Mills' car flipped over at least twice. He was 17 years old at the time.

"Whenever I saw a hard thing, I didn't run away from it; I ran towards it," Mills said.

Mills' road to recovery wasn't easy in the slightest. He underwent physical therapy and speech therapy.

The support of his loving family, the community, and God, he credits, is what helped him get through it.

"I learned a lot through my treatments. My verbal communications, my occupational therapy, my physical therapy especially," Mills said.

Now in 2022, Sam was approached by a firefighter while working at his Chick-Fil-A job. He handed Sam a business card and said to call him.

Sam did and felt inspired.

He then applied and got into the Harris County Firefighter Academy.

"It's our turn, not even as a family but as an individual, to pay it forward to those first responders. Because, boy, they don't get recognized very much. And I'm glad Sam has decided to go into this field just to pay it forward," Carrie Mills, Sam's mother, said.

A full circle moment as the now 19-year-old Sam Mills is inspired by those who saved him from paying it forward and helping others.

"I have all faith in him. He's a fighter," Sam's mom said.

The training will begin on Oct. 4 and will go on for several months at the Harris County Fire Academy.

Sam says he's looking forward to learning and growing. He aims to supply back to the community that supported him through one of the most challenging moments in his young life.
