Mayor Excuses NYC Athletes, Performers From Vaccine Mandate

"Do you know that the mayor of New York upholding the vaccine mandate for private employers in the city? Has decided to exempt from the vaccine mandate, got to have a vaccine in order to work in a private company in New York City. City employees have been fired. Many hundreds are out of work. Healthcare workers, cops, people worked in the fire department. Police department, city of New York, they're out of work. You know who doesn't have to abide by the vaccine mandate now? Millionaire athletes and performers. I'm not kidding you, the mayor of New York has waved his magic COVID wand and because Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving wasn't being allowed to play home games at the Barclays center, the mayor has now exempted performers and athletes from the New York City vaccine mandate requirement. So the usher making $12 an hour at the Barclays center, the guy who pours the beer and takes the tickets, he either has to get the vaccine or get fired. But superstar Kyrie Irving because he is a superstar and he's worth a lot of money. He's now exempt

"fire department" Discussed on The Times: Daily news from the L.A. Times

"And we're back. Pause so you mentioned earlier that people have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate what's going on in the Los Angeles fire department. What exactly are they asking? What do they want changed? I mean, the folks who called for the investigation. They want to top the bottom reform in the department. Some of them want to consent decree where the federal government oversee the reforms. The department was under a consent degree many years ago. And since then, these folks inside the department say that things just haven't changed. At least not enough. Do you think any of this news of the scandals of the LA fire department possible investigations? Do you think any of this is going to result in real change in the fire department? You like to think so, but who knows? Again, it's gone on for a long time. Another thing that's a real problem is the lack of transparency. In this extends to the mayor's office, the city attorney's office, they withhold these records from us that are clearly public records. One record day withheld from me and they continue to withhold is the number that's stamped on Mathis car. A number that you could see from the street. Somehow that's not a public record. They released none of the records. Supporting the findings in the math is investigation. And experts on the California public records act say that's just a blatant violation. And we're still pursuing that. When governments like in Los Angeles are the judge and jury, they can control what information gets shared to whoever. And, you know, even for us as Los pombero, we've asked for public records and government records. And even the department will not acknowledge our request, you know? And it should be the other way around. You should be happy to tell the truth. You should be happy to be transparent. You should be always looking to find a way to improve public trust. When I was a union president, I used to advise the fire chief, I'd say, look, when you have an issue that's going to create some public outrage or a political issue, I always tell them this. Tell it once, tell it all, tell it now. Just tell it once, tell it all, tell it now. Finally, Paul, why this opaqueness when it comes to LA FD? Well, the people I talk to say the elected officials are afraid to alienate department union and union leaders. And they want to get the endorsement of the union. They want to get campaign contributions. That's their theory that, you know, it's just not worth it to them politically. I am hopeful because fire chief Kristen Crowley. I know her both personally and professionally. And I know her to be a person who has character who has empathy and who is extremely competent. There's hope because I know her to be a person of that caliber and not to mention the first female fire chief of the Los Angeles fire department. So that right there provides me a glimmer of hope, but she's going to require the support of the public and the electeds to make sure that we don't find ourselves with.

Visit my turn dot CA dot gov to find a booster near you. Let's keep our immunity strong. Get your booster and a flu shot while you're at it too. Brought to you by the California department of public health. Welcome back. So Paul, Mathis was officially cleared of any wrongdoing. So after that, did he go back to work or what happened after the investigation ended? He never went back to work. He stayed on the injury leave, collecting his full pay, he retired at the end of January, and that was within days of the investigation finally concluding. So by the time I got these findings, he had already retired. Did he retire with his full pension? Nothing. He got a very large payment through this deferred retirement plan that we've written about in the past that's been highly criticized. In which firefighters and police officers after a certain amount of time on their departments can start banking their pension while they're still on the payroll after the age of 50, and in fact, you know, they're basically doubling their salary for up to 5 years. They've since been some changes in the program. But anyway, he got 1.1 million from that program. His pension is about $225,000 a year, and then he got nearly $300,000 in unused vacation time, sick leave, and holidays. So a very large payout. How did the handling of the math this investigation go over with folks at the Los Angeles fire department? Well, again, a number of folks are critical of it. And they have been in the past, not just in this case. They contend that there are two systems. When it comes to discipline and other things like promotions and hiring, one for the brass, particularly white men, and another for everyone else, particularly non whites and women. In our initial report, on this case, we pointed to another case where a black firefighter, a lower ranking firefighter, was drummed out of the department, forced to resign. I suppose because he missed some AA meetings or some sort of counseling sessions in connection with Indian found to have an alcohol problem some years earlier. So this case, of course, was handled very differently. This member was not drawn. He was not under the influence, but it just failed to meet one of the provisions and was terminated. But again, math has contends that he was mistreated. Who were some of these groups within the AFD that were critical of the findings. Well, among them were the heads of three organizations that represent women firefighters, black firefighters and Latino firefighters. They said this investigation reflects a deep cultural problem in the department in which their members are treated differently when it comes to discipline than the top brass and particularly white men. This is just the latest scandal that's hit the LA FD, the times, LA times has covered this extensively on this podcast. We had an episode in November with our colleague Dakota Smith about sexual harassment in LA FD against women, the really low hiring rates of women. What are some other recent examples of problems with the LAFC's culture? We reported on a case where a white firefighter punched a black man in the head while he was restrained on a gurney. That was kept under wraps for 17 months until the times found out about it, and we did a story on it. And in the end, he agreed to a 12 day suspension. Before that, there was the case of the chief spokesman for the fire department, allegedly used his city vehicle to stop and threaten an Uber driver over some sort of disputed a Trader Joe's. He was allowed to enter a diversion program through the city attorney's office, and he faced no discipline. And then there was the case of an assistant chief who was charged with hit and run, and he also entered into some sort of diversion program where he was able to do community service, make restitution, and attend alcoholic anonymous meetings, and two years and two months after the hit and run, the assistant chief, ellsworth fortman, still hadn't been disciplined as far as I could determine, and he retired from the department last weekend. All this time, as LA times is reporting these stories, you get repeated promises by LA mayor Eric garcetti that he's going to change the culture of LA FD. How's that worked out? Well, according to the folks, I speak to it hasn't worked out at all, really. Maybe some tiny incremental steps in hiring that number of women on the department is still around 3%. And again, there's just these constant complaints about unequal treatment. Harassment, things like that. And there was a call for a federal investigation back in the summer. Butler was one of those who called for the federal investigation early on. This was last summer before he retired. He retired later that year, and at the time he was president of the Los poem barrels, the group of Latino firefighters. I told the chief, you know, our intent, what we were going to do. And when we didn't get any traction or resolution or anything, we then decided to ratchet this up and send a letter to the U.S. attorney. I spent over an hour on the phone with 5 attorneys from the Justice Department and they were particularly interested in this. And so that's where this led, and the reason we went that route is because I know in my experience, over three decades in the department as a Latino firefighter that sometimes you need to go outside the organization to get the help you need and the federal government was that avenue we have. And they were responsive. And they have the law on their side. They have the authority, and they can direct local governments to do things if there's violations of title 7 of the Civil Rights Act.

"He's very familiar with the disciplinary process. Pretty much everything we do in our day to today routine is a policy for an example the fire department even tells us at what temperature to keep our water heaters in the fire stations. That is a policy. So yes, clearly we have policies, especially when it involves issues of intoxication on duty and really egregious violations. At times during his career, he told me that he knew of other cases where lower ranking firefighters were suspended or fired for being reported drunk on duty. So I've been involved in those specifically as a supervising chief officer in these events and really all you need is reasonable suspicion. And there's a whole process that plays out. You get an employee representative to represent you, the department sends out the internal affairs investigators and chief officer of my rank comes out and gives a directive that the member is to provide a urinalysis. And so what normally should have happened there is that you go through a complete process and of course you get the member help if they need help, but you can't subvert the process, he's one of the folks who was really taken aback by how this investigation was handled and he was one of those who predicted it would play out just as it did. From what we can tell based on our whistleblower involvement of folks that came to us, it's that it has not been followed. And it was not followed. We speculate a lot of reasons, but probably mostly as consistent with what we had seen is a pattern and practice of discrimination in the department. Preferential treatment to members of the chief staff and political pressure also from both the mayor and the city attorney's office, who don't want issues that are politically fraught coming out in the public. There's a lot of unfairness in this process. More, after the break..

"Last May, the palisades fire ripped through the Santa Monica mountains. We are here to share the latest information on the brush fire of the Pacific palisades. Still, we're holding it 1325 acres as the official number, but fire has grown so. About a thousand people were put under mandatory evacuation orders and about 500 homes were threatened by the flames. Thankfully, we have had no pressure destroying our damage and no residents reported any injuries. As that emergency was unfolding, the guy in charge of the Los Angeles fire department's operations center that was overseeing the fire, he was allegedly drunk. That's according to an investigation commissioned by city officials. And aresa LA times investigation details what happened next. Nothing. I'm Gustav Ariana. You're listening to the times, daily news from the LA times. It's Thursday, march 17th, 2022. Today, wine how the top LA fire official who was allegedly Borat on the job got no discipline and retired with a $1.4 million payout. And what that decision says about LA politics. Paul Pringle is an LA times investigative reporter, Paul, welcome to the times. Thanks for having me. It's been more than 9 months since the fire official in the Los Angeles fire department alleged that chief deputy Fred math is appeared to be intoxicated during the palisades fire. So what happened after those allegations came to light? Well, some of the details are still unclear because the fire department has been so tight lipped about it. But as I understand it, he was allowed to go home. They will not answer whether he was required to undergo a testing for alcohol or drugs as the department requires in such situations. They just want to answer that question. And in the meantime, instead of conducting its own investigation, we'll first fire department referred the investigation of his conduct to the city attorney's office and instead of doing the investigation, the city attorney farmed it out to a private law firm. And I was told by folks in the department that, you know, the city does this when it doesn't want scrutiny. Sometimes it will run out the clock. This farm took 6 or 7 months to conduct this investigation. And my source is inside the department said that should have taken a matter of days or weeks. So in the meantime, the law firm found no wrongdoing in his part. And that's it. No discipline. It's all over. What was the investigation's rationale for clearing Mathis of any wrongdoing? Well, that's what have a number of people outraged inside the department and outside the department. And that is that the investigation, according to the very brief findings that were released to me, found that he quote technically wasn't on duty when he was likely intoxicated because he put himself out sick. That day. Now again, my folks inside the department said doesn't work that way. There's a process for using sick leave and that is in it, according to them. And the department will not answer when that occurred precisely. Did he decide to put himself on sick leave after he likely became intoxicated? While he was intoxicated or they just want to answer. So there's a lot of criticism of how this was handled. So he was Mark sick on that day that he was allegedly drunk, but there's questions about that part. And the findings of the investigation did Mathis go back and Mark himself sick after the allegation that he was drunk was made? Well, I don't know that he himself ever marked himself out sick. There was no record of that, but somebody went into the timekeeping system four days later and put him on sick leave retroactively for the day he was, again, allegedly found to be drunk on duty and the following day. And I'm getting no answers about that either. What has math has said publicly about all of this? What response did he give you when you asked them? He says he did absolutely nothing wrong. He won't answer most of my very specific questions, but he thinks he was mistreated. He alleges that his privacy was violated. He was retaliated against when he simply sought help for his alcoholism. In the law firms investigation into this incident also cleared Mathis of other allegations that had been brought up against him. What were those? He was on leave and under investigation. He came back into the department headquarters at city hall east, and accessed the complaint tracking system that had this confidential and sensitive information about his own investigation. I learned of that, and we published a story on it, so they added that to the investigation. And there was also a claim that he might have misused his city credit card and city vehicle when he was on a leave. This law firm again in the very brief findings that were released. Said that they found no evidence that he misused whatever information he gleaned from the complaint tracking system, they did describe it as not a good look where it's that effect or they're not even sure he broke a rule and they said he did not misuse his credit card and city vehicle. They actually didn't address the city vehicle specifically, but they said they found nothing wrong there. You said earlier that investigations like this according to your sources are supposed to take days, not months. So is this how the disciplinary process at the fire department's supposed to play out? Not according to them. Again, if it's not days, and maybe a couple of two or three weeks, I mean the circumstances were so limited. There was this report that he was found to be intoxicated. Again, there was a delay in even entering into the complaint system. It's supposed to be done immediately. That took three days. But once it was done, it remains a mystery what took 6 or 7 months to come up with these findings. Everything in the fire department follows some form of policy rule or order. One of the folks I spoke to is Patrick butler. He retired last year as an assistant chief..

"It's amazing to see how the media continues to kind of be a 24/7 network around this. We're not getting calls back from the Saudis. We're asking Venezuela for oil, Macron is meeting with Putin, not Biden, Iran is wiping the table with us and the JCPOA two talks. We have a hundred and a 100,000 dead mostly young people from fentanyl, our southern border is wide open, we have double digit inflation minimum, 24,000 homicides last year, 24,000 homicides happening in our inner cities. Our educational literacy rates are going down is the most depressed, suicidal, alcohol, alcohol addicted, drug addicted, anxious and Medicaid generation in history. Yet I have to be lectured about our leaders that the American thing to do is to go and force a no fly zone 5000 miles away because something bad is happening. I get it. Something bad is happening. Vladimir Putin is evil. I agree. Something bad is happening here as well. Why are our priorities so upside down? Why do we get out of our chair enthusiastically and go buy a Ukrainian flag to go fly outside of our home and yet the kind of destruction and deterioration of our own citizens this kind of makes sense whatever kind of scoff at it. The same Americans by the way, the same leaders, by the way, who just lecture us last two years. It's the American thing to go get vaccinated and go stay at your home. Stay at home and be locked down. Why do you want to ignore our own problems? And you put all of that together, no one has yet to answer the question. Okay, the house is on fire. Fine, I'll take the analogy. We don't know what we could do about it, but do we even have the competent fire department to put out the fire? No. You know what they would do? The house is on fire. The fire department that we are calling, they bring out their hose, they open it and out comes gasoline.

He chose to spend with the police officers and fire department of new york. And just really look at that picture. Something about that photo of him drink there. I don't know what it is. It was very powerful to me. It really showed the contrast with this biden regime. He's right. there's such a dramatic difference right now. There's a mood in the country. And i here's a poll. That came out from cnn. I don't know if you trust the polar not vast majority of republican voters say they want donald trump to run and in two thousand twenty four. Sean spicer told us today. Not only will trump run in two thousand twenty four and he will be the nominee and he will win

"Make up a small percentage of career firefighters in the U. S. And they face unique challenges. Fred Thais reports that in Boston the Fire Department is trying to address that the Boston Fire Department recently put together an unusual workshop for female firefighters Hall of Bruins, a 26 year veteran firefighter. Says the women share common challenges The challenges that I'd say that female firefighters have is pretty much our physical fitness and getting along with, you know our male counterparts. And working together. And as a team, some women still face prejudice. Yes, one firefighter tells the class. The guy in her fire station thinks the only place in the fire department for a woman is as a secretary. Normally women attend Fire department courses along with men, but Fire Commissioner Jack Dempsey realized that some differences need to be addressed. We've done this course for the man and the women certainly were invited, but the physical exercises that's probably the biggest difference, so this was give specifically for women's bodies. Women have a lower center of gravity than men. Boston firefighter Diana McDevitt points out other challenges, I would say being a smaller stature, learning how to use my whole body to do movements rather than just upper body strength. Firefighters learned that they may be more flexible on one side important to know when reaching for something out of fire. Adam LaRue, founder of 02 ex human performance, the training company, The Boston Fire Department hired to run this workshop says Despite physical differences, female firefighters have to accomplish the same tasks has male colleagues. They have to be able to drag and get low, get high throw ladders up overhead. So you can see it's a very physically demanding job. But a lot of people don't recognize that the mental demands to address those mental demands actually ripped a cognitive performance specialist who works with Army special forces. Teaches the women to trust themselves, changing their self talk to recognize those beliefs that hold them back and performing. What are some of those beliefs, for instance, having to prove themselves and if they're not strong enough, you know, and the men are stronger, or at least appear to be more physically fit, Ricky says. In some situations, Women have a physical advantage over men. A smaller person might be able to get through a small window or a cross face to save a baby. She helps the women counter. Another preconception the belief in the perception that women are more emotional or sensitive. Working through this this, you know perspective, and some of the women were saying, You know, I think it's the men that are actually more sensitive. All the instructors in this workshop or women All the Bruins likes that they show a concern for us in a way that they have the same particular feelings or emotions or they understand a different mindset than, say, a male 6% of career. Firefighters in the United States are women in Boston. It's 1%. Since fire commissioner hopes to offer more workshops just for them for NPR news. I'm Fred Thais.

"Told that the fire department is holding a live news conference right now, Let's listen in. We had six transports. You were ready. For war yellow to Northwestern hospital. We had several removals from fire companies Way had a one room apartment fire on a 32nd floor. It was a lot of heat and smoke up there, as you can imagine in the high rights, which makes it challenging for the fire department. The members did an outstanding outstanding job of extinguishing the fire and removing all the civilians that were up there. Any questions? A lot of people self evacuated themselves down stairwells. On what was the rest of your question. A lot of smoke on 32 up to about 35, where smoke conditions So we had a lot of calls for checking the room, checking the apartments, which we checked every room systematically. Are all fires up there right now. It's under investigation. One lost correct on a 32nd floor. I believe it was a cab. Yes, I believe to the reports they were and they were both transported from the fire floor. And I'm not sure exactly what 32nd floor correct. The fire was contained in a 32nd floor contains one apartment, but it was the smoke conditions and high rise. Our biggest concern is smoke conditions. That's our biggest threat. Smoke spread throughout the building. So we try to eliminate that. Assume assume as possible upon our company's coming down. We had a few fire personnel get stuck in one of our elevators. So they were very are being removed right now. No. No injuries. They're fine. They're just stopped The elevator kind of went out at the last second, honest, not no suit. No civilians. Internet That's on us. About 20 minutes. A zoo. Matter of fact, I think they're about all alright now. So the people in the lobby there from a 32nd floor. We can't let him up there until our fight completes their investigation. Which would be about two hours or so. Yeah. Most people are back up in their apartment decided way prefer people stained or condos We don't want to infect. A 30 story building. If we don't have to only the fourth floor that need to be evacuated, which was the 32nd 33rd floor, heavy smoke conditions. Other than that we make announcements which the panels were working. Everything was updated. We're making announcements to the other residents to shelter in place. Communication is always a challenge. Elevators are challenged the height of the floors challenge in the amount of residents in the building. Middle of the night. We know it's probably.

"Fire department number on then 9 11 sort of scooped all that together and that, But the problem was with law enforcement is people were Directed to call 9 11 for virtually every sort of emergency, and that routed things immediately to police being first responders in many cases, except for some obvious like, you know, traffic accident there's there's someone hurt than paramedics, which turned out to be Almost always the fire department, right? They both had this sort of mission creep. I think there's a lot of cops. If you talk to them, they would say there are plenty of calls. They would rather not go on and rather work on things a little bit more. Important for for public safety, then showing up yet with another, like maybe there is somebody who was a drug addict who's asleep on your stoop or something along those lines. They would rather the right services go for those people and the other stuff, and they don't have to respond to all those. I think if you frame it like that, you get a lot of people on board, including cops. The Seattle Police Department doesn't really good job to some specific type to train to de escalate. And other cities come here and study and work with them and try to emulate it and run it out of their city And on their dashboard. You're gonna look at they did 17,000 meant one of their term that they used to be like mental illness calls. They've changed that. In 18 months. It'd 17,000 of those calls, and then they show you how many times they used use of force of the 12 or three different levels of use of force to explain what they had to do when they got there, they said. It's gotten worse and worse, because most of the times you're making a call on somebody. It's a mental illness individual on again. That's not the term that they use in the Seattle police Department. Some other euphemism to make people feel better. But it's somebody that's got some problems with drugs. So it's a drug related call where the persons out of their mind and the cop shows up, And they said, this is a situation that they don't normally like to get to go to. If the person's unconscious, That's a totally different situation, but if they're completely out of their mind Dave sent me video about a year ago. It was so sad. He goes. Show this to your kids. Just some like just to scare the hell out of him, right. The guy had been on meth, and Dave is talking to a guy through the through the window, and he's basically interviewing the guy. The guy has been up for 48 hours, right and he went from one type of Matthew in and now it's just completely strung out of his mind. He hasn't slept. He hasn't eaten. He is in a schizophrenic state, and this is an individual that's running around in traffic that eventually they take their clothes off for something they go after somebody with a knife and those of the calls that the police end up having to make. It's a mental illness called. Plus, It's also ah, it could be a physical violence call, so Those of the call 17,018 months. That's what they ended up with. Yeah, no, no, and I get it. But there's also if you if you talk to and you probably talked to Dave, and he probably tell you the same thing that he also shows upon calls that he's thinking like, what am I doing here? This would have made a lot more sense for a social worker to show up for somebody else. And then if it gets escalated, then they can escalate to calling actual law enforcement And I think that's what I think. This is what a lot of people are talking about. Like we have. We have a lot of police officers in every city, and we have all them doing a lot of things. And this also, honestly, if you want to reform law enforcement, you also need to reform the amount of paperwork that these people have to do because they would tell you that they spend a lot of time doing that when they could be actually out patrolling. I think that the idea of reforming law enforcement when you actually explain it well, is not anything objectionable. Yeah, The fund is not the best word, right? So it's in Minneapolis is doing it right. Mike isn't Minneapolis completely breaking apart that entire structure and what I had read recently was that they're going to put like community something or other involved in it. And, you know, reconstruct policing. They're going they're going to They feel like they're law. And they've had Minneapolis and problems with between police and the citizenry, particularly black said is not anything new. George Floyd is the is the last of Decades of complaints about the way their their law enforcement has been handled there, And so they're going. They feel like they have to do this ground up rebuilding, But it doesn't mean that they don't want cops who serve in many of the traditional roles. They absolutely do, But they just want to sort of create a system where you wouldn't you call This is these. These calls can be routed to of any number of people who actually are much more targeted for what you're calling about. It doesn't always have to be. Ah, Cops showing up first and then that cop then has to call other people in I saw that Governor Cuomo said on camera. Okay, you can stop protesting you one. All right. You want You got it. Now we create the police department that you want. I think that's a fair ask. I think that actually, I would hope that What happens in Seattle City Council is is exactly that. I mean, if you are unhappy with this, then participate in the process of making it something better. But that's going to mean a negotiating process and a give and take on both sides, which is, actually so this is the you If you want to move it in a separate issue, this is where Unionized law enforcement and I'm about as big a union fan as you could possibly be unionized..

It has its times on there. You can shoot the shit. Just hang out on the bells. Go off you gotta go to work and you gotTA. I don't know what you're doing you're going to be turned in. And you gotta you gotTa be professional whether it's a profession or not you're GONNA be professional and yeah nobody wants to have some dumb ass. Excuse me glitz Hoffman off. Schalke doesn't know what they're doing. And you know what the other thing we're dealing with this day and age too is. I mean you're young and I'm I'm fairly young is is. We've got all the social media which I think is great. Social Media's awesome but you we also have the people that are videotape in everything right and our post and everything up on on the Internet and on Social Media and talk about and I just wrote an article about this yesterday. Yeah I don't know if you had a chance to see it or not but like the critiquing in the criticizing that goes on within the fire service like you WanNa make sure you know what you're doing when you're going to call you. I WanNa make sure you got your equipment ready to go. And you're trained and you're stretching that like even if you don't stretch that hose line perfectly and it's caught on camera look out right The comments that just go crazy. You know my theory is the fire always goes out. You know when guys we should do our hose loads differently here in this and that and listen. Have we ever not had the hose line to the front door and put the fire out. No we've never had that happen but we have that challenge now where we have you know and especially as volunteers were looked that closer when it comes to the social media will world in the in the warriors on their the keyboard firefighters. You know. That's that's another good reason. Why when you when you'd when tones go off and the bells ring you better know what you're doing you better be ready to work so we ran a good bit box alarms alarms year as place those with more than ten people who live in the town? y'All sleep you run a good bit of Fire Alarms Chore So we have incorporated some stuff that can help us train because a lot of stuff. You're gonNA run especially if you have old folks homes in your In your lands those here if you see. I don't have any goes right at all. I've got apartment complexes I've got saw residences with fire. Sorry automatic firearms okay. That's that's all I've all. I've got an schools but So our guys have Some some guys have thought it would be good idea every time we don't do the scene of a firearm restrictions on and take it to the door. I like it through ladders. Don't do any of that to figure out if you need them but every time so we we've made SAG. Because sometimes you're not gonNA if it's a long stretch and you're going to have to do a lot of stuff to get that stretch to the front door. It's good to practice absolutely you know it's always you're always want to look for improvement. Always want to better yourself. So what better way to do that. Then stretch something on a real scenario that you might actually actually. This house could fire one day. No I think that's fantastic. I might get our guys start doing that because rerun fire alarm after firearm. In fact like my guys are on right now and it's just yeah it's just it's constant all the time that medical runs but we can't really stretch lines on those but but it's good practice I like to if it's if it's me driving it'd be let it's me you my brother in someone else so you can do your three sixty. I'm driving and the other two. They'll stretch their lawn on and I'll go ahead and secure water supply Joyce that's something although it's not something that you're done it you end up not needing it. It's great practice and the more you do it. The better you get at it comes second nature it. Gets you familiar with things right right by stretched to this hydrant. When I stretch this right over we stretched around the back side of the house? But that's not the you get saying. Oh I totally do and it also helps you remember where the hydrants are. You know if you're using them and hook up to them you know which you know which one's the best and where they are even before you get to the call. You can picture in your head. I remember wrapping that one once. I got from where our town's so small I can tell you every every fire hygienist I tell you what block whoever lives in. It's it's it's down to you to just memory now that's great that's great. I'm all about two. I'm all about turning any incident into a training situation. There's always some sort of value and it's always value to to to to show your community what you're doing in it. Got Me thinking to what. What are your citizens? Think when they see you stretching a a hose line for a firearm a lot of people now once we started when we started doing A lot of people were just kind of confused because they they heard firearm but they saw smoke or flames will. Why are they taking their fire? Hose end but oh Behind it We we send guys these town meetings. Let they hold later. They think that it's a it's a great thing that we're doing because they also understand that training benefits US explain to them. We're not only doing it for training but if there's really something there stuff they're exactly. It's no different than going in with your packs and tools because we do that for firearm. We go in packs and tools right. Hey Yeah hose lines a tool yeah. That's a great way to look. They they understood and the the they liked it. They thought it was a good idea. They they encouraged us to keep doing it. So Great. I like that You guys run for equipment for fire apparatus. Because I'm a fire truck not and I've looked at some of your stuff but Let's let's talk about your trucks. Whoa Oh's piece is a nineteen seventy nine Mac Im- be okay Our News engine is a two thousand seven pierce contender one of the black roof. Yeah well all of our trucks are black over. Okay okay. All right are yellow. One is a black over yellow. It's a it's ninety eight. It's a pierce dash okay so It carries Twenty four hundred feet of L. D. H.. No kidding well It's it's seven fifty booster pumps twelve hundred okay so That's that's a nice struck to have when you're doing long long way do you. have it set up see. Is the host bed split in half off or is it all all on one on one bed it is because we've we've got We've got two trucks two engines here that We've got two thousand thousand feet and we split it in half and right at the right at the half mark we have the coupling hanging out of the back so we can split that if he wanted to lead to dual supplies appliance. Yeah something to think about. You can get your hands on a divider. You know what I mean. It's not that bad and half. Now you're set up too late ADO aligned. If you wanted to I've I've never thought about that. That's also I'll send you a picture of it the next time at the firehouse. I'll send you a picture because it it actually works that we've never had to do it on a real fire but we do it in training every now and then where we just literally. That's a coupling and it's hanging out and we know that that piece hanging out. What is the the separator between the two thousand feet and we actually have the first thousand is yellow? The second is red. So that's another way to tell the difference and we just we you just uncoupling. We pull both both ends and You know you start land and you got to Big Lines on the ground just like that. Yeah you are Sutton We have a Nineteen ninety something. I can't listen. Yeah we have a four engines. Okay up a rescue engine. which is the contender told you? Before we don't we don't want a lot of wrecks. I think we we ran five last year. Did you really. You don't really have a major highway going through your town either. Do you know we do. But we don't have. US route sixty. But that's it's not like a highway in Charleston. Sure just got your you know your locals going through through people trying to get on the turnpike stuff like that. But we don't don't get a lot of wrecks they're Gotcha. I think this year we we got up to about three wrecks. Many REX's we've ran this year. That's crazy we get them all the time I it gets old at my house. We get a mixture of everything because our areas huge so we run a lot of car wrecks there. But like I'm more excited now to run car wrecks with entrapment than I am and I don't mean to say excited because it's like I'm I want someone to have a bad day but no but I get it and I'm sure everyone else gets it you get adrenaline. My gentleman goes faster for a car wreck with entrapment. US your fire more I get that completely ears. Yeah Yeah My pop speaking of like saying bad days and stuff. This is off topic. He he's always said that if you if if something bad happens you don't want something bad to happen but if something bad happens you won't be there so I kind of incorporate that into everything you know. I don't want someone to have. But if they have a bad dad like view right. And that's what we're trained to do and that's why we do it. That's why we're here right. The term idle hands. Jesus now I don't even even know the term but when you're idle hands creates drama essentially so like when there's nothing going on when there's no calls happening that's when you people start to get like stern shit right and they start complaining about stuff in their unhappy but the second you start getting more calls right mellow who are you working together. You're using your skills and you're having fun right and that's you know that's an issue that a lot of us have when when I first joined back in two thousand and one we're getting fires all the time we were getting all the time and morale is great. It was the best you know and then it died down. It's like then you get you so you get a real job and then you get married and kids and stuff so it's like you get less fires and then you get less opportunity to go to the calls when they do come in and that that tends to get kind of tricky too and I can see where that can be an issue with membership and a lot of different places with volunteer fire departments. anyways you get that point in your life like I'm at right now where it's just like you so damn busy. You know what I mean. Uh Department the First Department. That's yet such a small territory. We run the law so far so that is why I feel like a lot of the younger guys who are younger than me. Like sixteen seventeen year old that wanted to learn about the job. This is a good place for them ago but man way more fire than leave.

Please go check us a check that out on our our website so now let's get into our discussion today. I have a guest online. His name is Raji Selden and we have mentioned him once before four on a previous episode where he had a question for us that we answered He's a firefighter in Rand West. Virginia is that correct. Yeah all right all right man. Welcome to the show. It's awesome to have you on and all we've been talking about doing this for quite a while now and And you came afford the other day and asking if we still want to do it and he is jumped right at the opportunity. So why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into the Fire Service and maybe your family background. Excuse me so my name's Raji seven. I'm a I'm a volunteer firemen and now Centuries Atlanta paid Ireland awesome graduations. Thank you This this has been something that my family's done for a long time My GRANDPA has been the fire chiefs. Allied Involuntary House now for fifty four years. Wow He's been the chief for fifty four years that's awesome. That's wild chief to to weekend's The weekend of Christmas in like nineteen seventy. No kidding yeah I think that's that's when was I can't even remember it's been a while right right and of course myong-chol into to My uncle become a captain Neeson's roofs so now he's our neighboring fire department but So so it's always just been kind of US three Got Some other family Around the state that's involved often. We don't talk to this that like just that family type chores just always grown up in the firehouse functions and whatnot so you you grew up then as a kid around the firehouse. Then I know how that is. Yeah when did you officially join join when I was fifteen on the junior fireman's her gram Yup Yup But so my My GRANDPA my grandpa used to run the county Emergency Services Department Cortlandt. Okay He did that for twenty eight years so and his specialty was fire. Obviously right sure as a kid did he would always leave to handle big of like big situations. Have you have you ever heard of the Marshall Plan Crafts. No I don't think I have so The Marshall Plane Crash was in. Yeah I'm purchasing like like nineteen eighty or some nineteen eighty. Okay so much point crashes Lynne. The flight was carrying the whole Marshall. Football team seventy five members seventy members seventy five members of the of the Marshall Football Team who remembers Crashed and killed all the football walk players except the quarterback cheese so my grandfather had to respond to that I think he's been like eight calling. Crashes is wow so he's got a little bit of background with then he's been written so that's nice to have someone like that. You can always absolutely goto questions. It's pretty cool. So how does that. How does the chief get appointed an in rant as it is voted on or is it something that's disappointed by a town official board we have There's there's people on our board stomped through chief every two years. We have an election okay to town. People people to view from the town a senior fireman and two officers from the Fire Department so They vote every two two years and then just kept him in this long run awesome. So it's not. The full membership does voting. It's more of a panel of people then For that for that it's a for like the chiefs position they They do the wrestle. Our guys we Kinda vote on stuff. That's more not the fires US position life positions positions Accepting new members. Right right so they kind of which makes it real on on sleep. It makes it really easy to kind of keep everything in order as far as these are the rules. Not because we're voting stuff that we feel needs to stay in place right you are You have some sort of ownership ownership as far as how things run and you have you have kind of The numbers to back you. You know what I mean the membership to to back you that you know this is the organization his ation. This is how we want things to to run. You don't have somebody from the outside. That's making the decisions for you. which is a huge benefit exactly? Yup Oh it's it's better because people from the town aren't aren't going to know what goes on as the firehouse right so why should a couple of people from the town. I loved the people of our town and short. That's some at the at my paid firehouse else. I've learned that that's something that they're big on is is keeping everything kind of community a community thing. So everything's about your community whereas at the volunteer firehouse. Everything is kind of just centered around how to make us better care about the community safety in their wellbeing but at the day if we're not getting better as fireman fireman it's kind of you know keeping ourselves happy you gotta you gotTa Take Care of yourself you know. Oh you gotTa make sure that you have that retention in that strong membership and you gotta you gotTa Take Care of yourself you. Don't you know it's kind of selfish maybe to thank you. We come first but in in reality we do when you have a volunteer fire service You gotta put your members I before anything. If you WANNA KEEP WANNA keep that membership up you know you know you. Don't I really want to always think like a tax payer granted we are mostly taxpayers ourselves. But you know when it comes to managing department you WanNa think you know like a leader and you want to think think like how your members are going to be happy so when we talked about you a while ago in that previous episode. We talked a little bit about rand in what you had told me about rand. And it's a small little town right. Yeah so what's the what's the square. Mileage I can't remember now a mile mile long four city blocks deep. That's crazy so how. How many calls do you guys get a year Luster right now at forty two nice. Now he's Doodoo medical to or is it just firearms you do yeah. You don't have a transport ambulance do you. No no no no we don't want to those But you guys get quite a bit of fires. I see pictures that you post up online. You you guys you guys do well with fighters yeah yeah We We do we do. All right we two years ago all the you know so last year we had Thing it's all us. We have forty eight working fires. It's crazy this year were we. We kind of stepped up or faulk prevention stuff. So lot of our stuff is has kind of stopped seeing the result then a good result. That's that's good. That's great this year. So far we've cut that number almost in half or twenty eight We we just we run along mutilates stuff. Fire was but yeah like I told you we had twenty four four in our I D last year and we've had fourteen our first news issue done all right. Yeah Yeah but fire. Prevention is doing its job to and that's that's a great thing now. They've done a great job. Yeah Yeah it's not something for everybody. Everybody I can tell you that but it definitely takes a special person to sit in front of a group of kids for sure but something. We should all be good at at the same time now. What kind of a community community the community is ran as a bedroom community? Is it commercial. What is it that you guys are covering we covered mostly residential? Okay Sir. Twenty eight Apartment complexes so twenty eight apartment complexes Alexes twenty-seven businesses but a lot of our businesses. You gotta think or we have a Very Small Limited Space Chore. You're our only so big so lot of our businesses. You're running out of residential homes. Okay yeah a lot of times we go. People are trying to start their business or whatnot will go into these houses on cramped pack full stuff. So our conditions here are a little bit worse. Okay other places that would make sense yet but Yeah we cover. It's kind of a mixture lushly residential. But we've got a few up businesses like I said we've got to schools okay One is right in the eastern part of town and the other one is rag on the outskirts of town okay. They're they're they're not too far apart. Obviously because well you're only a mile long. So so we we. We cover Elixir Elixir stuff. That's great that's great. How about your membership? Would you guys have for members. It's all volunteer right. You don't have. It's on a combination department right okay. So how many how many members I do you have Right now our last countless twenty two twenty two members who are they all active most of them active or do you have like a percentage actually most of them are active. We we've started a anew new program that we're trying out in volunteers are are what they are level. Hello which makes it. which makes it? We know everybody can't be here all the time right. There's some people I get forty eight hours off so today's the firehouse right right. But there's some people that work and there are some people that just can't can't be around all the time so our our Ara. A percentage of people making calls and stuff has gone up. We started this program. Where if you can't make at least at least forty five percent of our calls and meetings every year than the can't be on the fire department? Yeah that's smart because you don't WanNa be putting your public and your own guys at risk if you have someone that's very inexperienced showing up two random calls and not knowing what's changed on the trucks or new tactics that you might have gone over a new equipment that were put on the trucks and and it's something that I could. I could spent we. We work off grants okay fire. She's okay okay so you don't get any There's there's no like municipal budget. It's mostly just grants gotcha grant okay. County and federal money. Okay.

Were telling us what's that you had an incident where your Subaru apparently just caught caught fire. You said the B. R. X.. Model may have some some faults you bought this thing brand new wasn't and and how long did you had it before it. It caught ablaze well it. It's the Model B. R. Z. and <hes> we had a month and a half wow and where was it where was it was it in your driveway and your garage when this happened driveway okay so thankfully. It probably didn't catch your your house on fire so that's good but the cars burning in your front yard your your driveway. You said you were at work at the time while this was happening uh-huh and <hes> and was anybody home yes my husband was here and <hes> the sheriff's office arrived <hes> the Fire Department arrived and <hes> a little after five o'clock. I arrive and my <hes> my issue. Oh what I would like to pick your brain about is private have a property right because they hauled him off to jail immediately. Yes immediately. They determined that it was some type of criminal activity Mosey charged with <hes>. I have not seen the police report so I do not know hold on. Is he still in jail now. Oh no no. I brought them right away. Okay it's surprising to me. Having you know I've had a lot of friends arrested for civil disobedience and usually you know I wanna know when I go and get somebody out of jail is what were they charged with so. I don't think they have to provide that for the first twenty within twenty four hours. I have never heard that rule mark yeah generally if you're getting bailed out on something you have some idea of what that something is that you've been bailed out on so you even though you're his wife. You don't know what he was charged with okay. Let's go on go what <hes> <hes> I was left there alone and I you know showed up on the scene after coming home from work and <hes> I watched them drive him away data and I was left with all these sheriff officers and Police Department I mean fire department and treated like a criminal <hes> on my very own property and <hes> there were two vehicles that they insisted absolutely insisted and I question them and question them. Why do I have to have these vehicle's towed why why they're my vehicles on my property and they just insisted that they absolutely had to be toned towed wear though well the one I was the one that burn up and it's just <hes> you know scrap metal? Basically I had to move from Point A. on my personal property to point B. on my personal property do a large piece of property <hes> thirty three acres yet okay. I can see why you would want to keep the vehicle that caught fire so that you could talk to the the the the manufacturer and the Insurance Company and everybody that you need to talk to say hey we got this. was there alleged reason why you needed to move the vehicle from point A. TO POINT B. on your property they said <hes> that it was <hes> <hes> the oil oilfield it would be inconvenient for the oilfield too service of whatever it is that they have on our property <hes> although it's not Finn There's plenty of area <hes> I missing someplace so there's a you've got a contract with an oil company working on your property now. I have no contract with them. They all they have is monroe right. Why why would the car being in your driveway be a problem for the oil people but you can't surround the oilfield with <hes> derelict cars so they can't get in right in her driveway? I understand that while she was proposing to move it to another another location..

"Stay and fight the fire yourself with your garden hose, do it. But don't complain that the fire department somehow didn't do their job now. I don't want to digress for into this. 'cause I need to tell you about our sponsors today. And I don't want to make this a philosophical day of discussion. But there is some question about okay, I'm not happy with the service. I'm getting with the police the fire department. So I wanna I don't wanna stop paying you guys. And I wanna hire my own some of the houses in Malibu were saved because people hired private fire department to come out and defend their homes. And of course, they got all kinds of you know, all kinds of heat for that. But the truth is if the flames were coming across from your house, and you could hire a private fire department. Do you think you would? Yeah. You would. So what you really are just jealous because you don't have as much money as they have. And you don't have the resources at your disposal that they do. That's I mean, that's embarrassed. You should be embarrassed of yourself. That's the way you think. In other words, you're mad that they're bigger success. It's exactly right. You're mad about. So there is something to be said for these folks who say, look, I don't I wanna hire my own fire department. I will pay the fee. I don't wanna have to continue to pay your fire department who doesn't have a responsibility to show up. I wanna hire the guys who are responsible to show up and who got to fight the fire. Whether there's a low chance of success or not this is when they hire private contractors in the military when I used to do private contracting work that was a big part of why you hired a contractor when you hired him because you could expand and contract your workforce at will. So I could just hire you one day and say we don't want this contract anymore. So you guys are all fired. The other thing was I was paid to fight regardless of the chance of the outcome. So the reason that you pay me, and the reason that you paid the other guys who are with me. And the reason that it was so expensive to hire us because we were all former special operations guys the reason it was so costly. A higher us is because we were the guys who would stand and fight when the time came and it didn't matter whether we were all going to die or not. That's what we were paid to do and everybody understood that and everybody buddy bought into that before they went down range. And so that's a big part of hiring professionals professional contract workers to do work for you. And the more you pay the better quality person, you get so I can envision a world where you have really cheap. Firefighters that show up with, you know, small truck, and I can see fire departments that rival anything that we have today, and depending on what you could afford you could purchase and that just makes a lot of sense to me both as a police force and as a and as a fire department anyway. Okay. So let me tell you about the sponsor for the day. First skill share guys, you constantly hear me complaining about how people are not working on their human capital and they're waiting around. And if he has some the big complaint that you. His Jason information's expensive. Good information is really expensive. We'll skill share is an online learning community with more than twenty five thousand classes and design business and more and it is not expensive, by the way. In the matter of fact, you're going to get something so cheap that it's going to be stupid for you.

"The fire department in Baltimore City. And I think there's a couple of what engine houses realm that are shutting down or whatever it is. Because I was doing other things at the time. And he could probably tell you more about it. The fire department story rob a couple of houses are going to be shutting down or some engines out of service, or what does that was a couple of fire units north west Baltimore ran out of service. According to the Baltimore Sun report this morning, Frank. But fire officials say there's. They're prepared well equipped to deal with emergencies. Nonetheless, see we had a someone Texas your this morning saying the state of apparatus in the city. Fire department is desperate trucks are breaking down with no parts of edible. Reserve operatic. Is in deplorable condition. Shame of the Baltimore City fire department, and then it goes on to say in a subsequent. Techs. Don't by the city fire departments entered that services will not be affected. They are putting two firefighters in an SUV handling minor emergencies. But they have no firefighting equipment and do not replace a ladder truck on a house fire. So apparently, there's more to it than what meets the eye right now. Anytime you you, you know, I don't know if this is true or not. But if it trucks are breaking down there. No parts. This sounds like what the military was going through having equipment breakdown, especially on planes, and what have you and not having the parts, you know, to prepare them. You're right. The city is losing its tax base. And and you know, there's not that much money coming in anymore to afford the things that they actually need something done about Baltimore City. It was a great city at one time. Not. So right now has the makings of one. Not not so bright now. Hey, by the way, if you have a house for sale, you can go out there and get any agent whatsoever to put a sign in your yard. And then they you know, they go about their business and keep their fingers crossed and hope for the best with Vinny studio. He goes so far beyond that. It's not funny, then.
