Twenty degrees to eastern montana where some farming towns braced for highs close to one hundred ten. Npr's kirk siegler reports. There is little relief in sight. For the drought stricken region.

"Thanks So much for being here. I want to go to a couple of examples of what's happening with policing around the country and how the city of Phoenix and Valley cities and agencies can learn from the mistakes of other cities. Helen Jones grew up in Watts. Um, and last year, she demanded, um fewer police officers and more investment in communities like hers became the demand of a movement. After the police killing of George Flame, Minneapolis shook the country. I'm reading from a news story it inspired by the largest mass demonstrations for civil rights and generations and push police reform to the forefront of the nation's agenda. Now, a year after Mr Floyd's death, Los Angeles and other American cities faces surge and violent crime amid the pandemic, despair and a flood of new guns onto the street. The surge is prompting cities whose leaders embraced the values of that movement last year to reassess how far they were willing to go to reimagine public safety and divert money away from the police towards social services. That's one headline The ST Louis murder rate, already the highest in the United States sword again last year, the mayor still vows to divert $4 million from the police to social programs and cut nearly 100 100 police jobs. In New York City 30 shot over this weekend alone. The Chicago police issued a vote of no confidence for their mayor. After the after what she was saying she won't do interviews with anyone that is any press that is Caucasian. That's white. So we're seeing in the cities where this movement has taken hold that the policing in that city has regressed and the crime has increased. And there's going to be a big push back now. Here in the city of Phoenix. It has not been as severe. But what has happened here in the city of Phoenix is we have seen a nin creasing crime. Violent crime. Gun crimes are up. Isn't it interesting that the same movement That doesn't trust. The police believes that it's only the police that that should have guns. So the answer to the crime problem is to take guns away from innocents people so they can't protect themselves against the people that are out there committing gun crimes number one. The premise of that is foolish. But when you look at the way we are as a society and what's really strange about Arizona. We have the least restrictive gun laws in the country. I believe, and it's embraced by both parties. This is not a partisan issue in Arizona. There are a lot of Democrats that are elected office that have been highly rated with the N R. A And we understand in Arizona that self protection has got to be available. But the idea of reducing the police force I am along order person, just like most of you are now If you break into my house, I'm going to defend myself that I'm not saying that at trying to be a vigilante. I'm saying that I want to be prepared and I am prepared. And it's just like of a fire happens. I've used this analogy so many times. You have a fire extinguishing your house. If your house catches on fire if you start a grease fire in the kitchen if something happens You're going to use every means necessary a garden hose or a fire extinguisher to put that fire out yourself until the fire department and the professionals get there. Well, I would do the same thing with defending my home when violence comes into my house. Would call 911. If somebody was breaking into my house, and if they came into my house, I would defend myself until the professionals got there. That's the society we live in. You know, And that's the way people prepare to be safe. If you decrease the size of the police department, the base of the movement of the fund, the police says they want neighborhoods to be safe for their belief is that less police in their neighborhood makes their neighborhood safer. And every city that this is happening in when less police from the streets, those very neighborhoods are subject to more crime. And why we don't look at this evidence based mess and say, We don't want to be that in the city of Phoenix or Chandler or Scottsdale or any of the other cities. The answer would be more and better trained officers. The ability for continuing education. So you've got enough cops to be on the streets with the others in training. And I'll argue this with anyone we've had people on from black lives matter. We've had people on to talk about this and they don't trust the police. I'll give you one last example of how how deep this distrust goes. There is a community program that is run by the Phoenix Fire Department That involves scenes where the police and other things have happened and they're on those scenes. These are people that are not armed. They're there to fill in gaps and help and they have been in this program is very small, and it needs to be increased. The people of the movement that wanted to fund the police came into the meeting and argued that because the fire Department works with the police Department, they can't be trusted either At least not this program. And in this program just about everything they want with a group of people that are not law enforcement that are not armed. It's all there. It's what they're asking for. It's already in the Phoenix fire Department for the most part. And they wanted to funded because they work in conjunction with the police department. The fact that they were able to persuade the City Council in a 5 to 4 vote to vote in favor of of police oversight Committee on office for police oversight. We can't call it a border a committee because it doesn't mean state law. Nobody that works in that office. That new found office is allowed to be affiliated with the police or have an immediate family member. That is, so you're going to bring people in for a police oversight board that have no idea about policing. They know they hate the cops. They know they don't like the cops in their neighborhood. And those of the people that should be have a oversight voice. That has authorized by city officials. Even if you're someone that believes there needs to be more oversight of the police. You think that this is going to be a fair office? You think that that office is going to be there to fairly judge whether or not an officer did something right or wrong? And again? What happens? When and if the Phoenix Police Department doesn't internal investigation to their professional standards Bureau and they figure out and they say the officer acted within our police policy. And then the county attorney's office does a criminal investigation and said that the officer was well within their rights to do what they did. And this newfound office comes out. Said No. The cops did something wrong. What? What authority? Are you giving them? They have arrest powers..

"Valley, watch radio. I'm your host today. Rob mcdade? I'm a captain with the Phoenix fire department. Currently the public information officer and today, we've got out of skydiver firefighter with Phoenix fire department. Thanks for joining us, Adam. How are you? I'm good. Thanks for having me. Hey, let's get started on a little bit background of yourself. How long have you been with the fire department? And basically what brought you to this profession something that you know, we all joy love coming to work every third day. How long have you been on? And what brought you to this Phoenix fire department? I'm coming up on nineteen years here in may so little just nineteen years. What to it? I'm third generation firefighter, my family. So I kind of grew up around the fire department always kind of. Group going to the fire station and around that. And at some point I thought that might be kind of a cool thing to do. So started moving toward that direction. Here. I am nineteen years later. So that's that's probably one of my favorite parts of the job is such a family atmosphere. I work with a lot of firefighters that have they are second and third generation firefighters in stuff to explain to somebody. That's never done the job before that. It's unique. We do a lot of really cool different things. But we also live together for twenty four hours. And that's something you need to have that personality to be able to do that. I would imagine growing up yourself seeing that visiting the fire station with family there and seeing how that all works sort of. You're there, you know, for sure you want it, or this isn't something you're going to do because not every daughter or sort of a firefighter becomes a firefighter, but it seems to be the trend. Yeah. I mean, you could really. You people think they are? They see firefighters on TV or movies, or or maybe no firefighter, but growing up going to the fire station, you really see all aspects of the job. And so you get a good cross section that. So and there's a lot of Ryan. So obviously everybody sees striving down the road in the red fire truck says it on our title firefighters put out fires. But we also deliver EMS service technical rescue team rescues. We have has MAC opponents. But we also assist the Fima team and deployment the Arizona task force. One has a long history of of representing the state well out of large scale on a federal scale for hurricanes of any sort of a. Mass either. Mass casualty incident or active nature nine eleven is. What I remember when I first got on. I remember deploying there and sending team there. And with that there's so many different components on the Fima team. You've been deployed yourself. I have been on three different deployments. And when we when we do get deployed we serve a lot of different roles. Don't we we have the technical rescue teams. We've got the has teams we've got a medical component. But there's also a component that maybe people aren't familiar with. That's where you come in talk to us a little bit about your role on the deployment when you go with the Fima team. And that you got a special partner that goes with you when you get deployed I do. So I am a canine search specialist with the Arizona tests worth one. So I'm made up. I'm part of the search component of the team. And I have a search and rescue dog that I've trained and he goes with me on deployment. So when we go into. Point we take four dogs. And there are the dogs are trained to find live people. And so we utilize them in in situations where that arises where we could use them our main trainings for building collapse in earthquake type situations, but we could use them in all types of situations. If we need them we've got just another tool that we have for our team. I've been fortunate enough to meet these dogs up close and personal when you look at him. I just looked like these friendly labs a lot of them seem to be predominant labrador retrievers. I know there are different breeds that you have on the team. But they're not just your run of the Bill dog these dogs have been trained while you take it from here. How long I mean, they get trained early and they have a wash out for the program to right? So these are elite dogs these dogs have to pass I mean rigorous testing process. Correct. Tickets through the steps of how we get these dogs in the training that goes into them. There's a couple of different ways we get the dogs. So some of the dogs we got as puppies. My dogs that I've trained got seven-week-old puppies, the training starts immediately, and it just progresses over time. Probably working about Radha thousand hours year in training goes into the dog the first couple of years, and it takes about a year and a half to two years to get the dog to the minimum level. We need them to be at to be a part of the team. And there's a testing process they have to pass the test or she'd be the pass this test to be able to deploy. So that's one way we get him. The other way, we get them is get him as young adults in recently. We'd be getting dogs from a place in Pennsylvania actually called Penn vet and they trained working dogs for a variety of situations. For police canine work for search work even for medical field. I was talking with them about a week and a half ago and their training dogs to detect cancer. So they they do a lot of work in training up these service dogs and Swe beginning dogs from them. They put in countless hours we get the dog anywhere from year to year two half from them. What's the dog's a year and half old? And we continue the training on kind of polishing up the rest of it in moving onto the testing process. So when you get that dog, and it becomes your dog. Not only is this mean this working dog that's going to serve such a critical role on a deployment. But the mean, they have to become a part of your family, don't they you can't just disassociate yourself. I know that you have to I've been around the dogs. And I'm amazed at how well behaved they are. They're training. They know into sit stay they they have to integrate with a team that deploys across the road. They have to be in cramped. Quarters have to be on the trucks. But at the same time. Yes, they're working dogs. And yes, they serve a purpose. But they also need that affection and that fun time of that playtime talked a little bit about how you integrate a dog like that. I know you have a family you've got children how you integrate that dog, and you try to draw that line of. Hey, okay. This is your downtime, but you're still working dog. Walk us through that you go home the morning from the station, and you got the dog with you. And then what does that dogs normal day? Then on a let's say a day off if you would call it that sure. So our little unique some working dogs. We never wanna pet a working dog, and they're working things like that are really unique in we like interaction with people. And and we like people to pet her dogs are dogs job is to find people. And so it's okay for for our dogs to interact with them. Our dogs are really like just your your pets. Just more rules to follow. So, yeah, they the my dog goes to the fire station with me, he goes home with me. He he's with me all the time at home. He's got his bed there in the corner of the living room, and he got his basket full of toys and the kids play with them and throw the toys four of and he likes to treat now and again, and so we everyday life is kinda same. But without there's trading involves. So we made. I have to go to training we go to training at least once a week as a group. I have training equipment at the fire station that I train with me trying to get home. I have some training at home. We may go to the park and trading. So there are some other things that go on. But for the most part most of the day is just a normal dog. He's a seven living the good life with his family hanging out having a good old time. So if they know presses me the most about these animals and for so many that's listening this morning and has never seen these dogs in action. We have our old training academy where we've replicated I mean a disaster zone. Got concrete Jaggi, coal creek. Piles of of blown out cars, and it's so now it is a controlled area. But at the same time, we expect a lot of these animals because like you said if they're gonna find a human they're finding a human in the worst possible conditions building collapse. Apartment. You know? Maybe there was a gas explosion. Maybe an act of terror. Maybe it was a storm. So talked a little bit about the uniqueness of your dogs, and sort of their dexterity what is their their place of work. It's of what so. Yeah. So what what we trained for? We trade for mainly building collapses earthquakes, but other things too. What do you think of a building collapse? Where is firefighters? Where would we start digging for people that are that are need help or alive or? The dog can really narrow down the area. So we have a couple piles that are special operations facility. There. What of around thirteen thousand square feet, the other ones around eight thousand square feet the dog in clear apply. Like that in, you know, ten to fifteen minutes in, you know, run across a pile until you where people are located or if there's nobody there. It's really great tool to allow you to either say, yes, we can commit our resources here or we can move our resources elsewhere to another area. But you're right. There's a lot of different. It's a different environment. Right. Big pieces of rebel, small pieces of rebel metal cars and the dogs work. Really? Well, they're really agile. You've mentioned labradors on our Arizona, all labradors. They're just work really well for us, but across the country, there are different breeds. But dogs work, really? Well, they're really agile across the pile. They can move very quickly. And so it's second nature to them. It's not we don't just get him as a puppy and put them up on the pile. We work our way into that. But they learn very quickly. How to negotiate those sorts of obstacles in really move across the pile of fairly. Well, and so the the the humans that they're looking for. They don't have to be awake. Clapping for the dog calling for the dog is it because most likely this person might be incapacitated. So are we going on the human scent is that the main drive of that dog to find somebody? Yes. So the dogs we have for the task force. They are trained to find live people. And you know, you think of like a tracking dog like a bloodhound or something like that where you people sometimes say, well, how do you? How do you have a shirt or something that they they're sent on them or something? We don't have that luxury. We don't have a building collapses. We don't know who's in there who's alive. We don't have a center of ical. So our dogs air scent. So they look around. They can see somebody that can smell that person. But they smell somebody else. I can't see that person..

"Here's our top story as you just heard on ABC. The house oversight committee is listening to testimony from President Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen and Arizona Republican congressman Paul gosar ripped in Tacoma during this morning's eerie, he called Cohen a pathological liar. Who's just trying to get his future prison sentence reduced by making accusations against the president? Is it not yet? There is a possibility answers, you know. It's not so yes, it is. Okay.

That's between Camelback inn, Bethany home roads. Phoenix fire department is on the scene today. The house is voting on the most. Significant gun control Bill in years, we hear from congressman who's voting. No. The legislation would require universal background checks for gun sales mandating background checks to cover sales at gun shows and over the internet Republican congressman Andy Biggs says he's voting no basically to creating registry. So that they can then go in and take away guns. But I mean, but what they're really trying to do is the Bill itself is unworkable because in order to have a you have to have a registry. So that's what they're really gonna enforce the current law. Only mandates federally licensed firearm dealers to conduct background checks before making a gun sale. Ali vetnar, KTAR news.

"Watch a show brought to you by Bonneville broadcasting. My name is rob mcdade. I'm a captain with the Phoenix fire department. And I'm currently the public information officer we like to showcase stuff going on in the valley with Phoenix fire department and other philanthropy or anything that we think is something really great that we'd like to bring year attention. I'm excited today. We got restaurant here today known him for a while. He's an engineer with the city of Phoenix fire department, but he also holds another title. He is in charge of the emerald society, which is one of our what we like to call a Finnity groups, and they do basically their Swiss army knife and the community they helped recruit potential, firefighter recruits. They donate their time. They just basically make it a better value to live in so Russ, welcome. Hey, thanks, rob. Appreciate you having me. So before we get started. So was driving their car listening. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Did you grow up in the valley? Why did? You want to become a firefighter, and how long have you been with Phoenix? So for the most part grew up in a valley since middle school. And then the reason why I wanna be a firefighter so I had a lot of friends in high school their their dads coach us on football. So we got the visit the station on the weekends. And it was a a great opportunity to see that department. The culture the traditions. They get involved with and it closely actually resembles just being an athlete, and that's a lot of why wanted to get into it. So fortunately, I've been on the department for little over you haven't eleven years, and I get the fun job. I get the drive the fire truck, which is you know, any kids dream, so I absolutely love my job. And it's it's amazing. Now rests works at one of the busiest stations in the city and in the country. He works station eighteen they've actually got two full time fire trucks there an ambulance and medical response vehicle to help with the call volume they like to call it the light show because it a fire station the lights come on. That means you have a call it. So sometimes it's the light show because it's almost like Christmas tree lights at our blanking. That seems like it's always going on. And what's the name of your truck? They have a unique name. So I am on engine nine eighteen and that trucks been dubbed the crazy train right for many reasons. One of them. Of course, you'd have to be crazy to want to read so many calls, but believe it or not I've been to that fire station and the unique and really cool part about that fire station is the folks that are there want to be there. They wanna work at that busy station. They wanna make a difference the camaraderie stations like that where they're busy is very important. They all they all they're all the same page. They do stuff together on their days off. So. When you see eighteen or nineteen rolling down the road. You know, you're in good hands for them. So let's talk a little bit about that the camaraderie about the fire department. It's not just a it's not a job. It's not a job where you clock in. And you leave we like to look at a firefighters a career, and we always like to give back to our community were so thoughtful, we're so welcoming, and we're so appreciative of the fact that the city of Phoenix supports our fire department. We know it's talk tax dollar money. We try to get everything we can out of that tax money for the taxpayer delivering that great customer service that fire EMS service. So what has happened is is that we have a lot of the people that work in the Phoenix fire department have spurned off these affinity groups that basically they help promote our department they helped recruit firefighters, and then they help basically do good in the community. So the emerald society is one of those programs Russ speak to us a little bit about what the emerald society. Maybe it's origins right mean? That mean emerald society where you have to be Irish. So let's talk a little bit about that. That is definitely a question. We get all the time. Do you have to be Irish to join it absolutely not were fully inclusive? Everybody's welcome any gender any ethnic ethnicity. We welcome to all. And where we got started was nineteen eighty-seven news. A group of Phoenix firefighters they were Irish based getting together. And and around a couple pints and tell some stories and said, hey, why don't we just start raising money for the community. It has grown so successful, and such an amazing organization that I'm proud to be part of this currently the vice president on the executive board. And then I've been running a mentorship program for probably nine years now. So that emerald society, we were over two hundred members strong, and it's not just in the city of Phoenix but valley wide, so we have members from P oria, Glendale, Tempe, Scottsdale and surprise, we're really grown out to the whole valley. And it's really amazing. So the biggest thing we do is really give that money back to the community. So everybody that's involved in all the events and fundraisers, we do it's one hundred percent volunteer. So that means pretty much every dollar goes back into the community other than we we've bought some tables and chairs just for operational costs. But everything else goes back into the community such as the Irish cultural center, we'd like to donate money to them. Keep the building in the grounds up. It's a great staple of the Irish community that they get a lot of information genealogy and and whatnot. We also like to to help out with Arizona, Colleen and rose Patchett again keeping into the Irish roots giving back to the Irish community, but there are several other. Events that we'd like to get involved with there's on burn foundation for one they do their yearly tree delivery or auction..
