  2. Bernie McHoligan Jacknall Personnel File Full name: Bernie McHoligan Jacknall Place of Birth: Big Timber, Montana Current Residence: Palomino Avenue, Vespucci Beach Height: 5'11 Eye color: Green Hair Color: Dark Black Current Rank: Senior Fire Captain, Station Captain for Station three. Divisions: Urban Search and Rescue Command, Training and Recruitment General Background Montana is a land of natural resources, trees, salmon, freshwater, natural beauty, what it doesn't really have, are people. Big Timber is a prime example of 'small' town, barely a thousand or more people, for miles on end. Bernie ended up being born there, on the McHolihan-Jacknall Ranch, he was born into a large prime midwestern family, with three brothers and one sister, he was the runt of the ramble. The youngest of all five. Going into high-school ended being worse for the runt, between getting himself into trouble, antics, and pure ba-fuggery. This ended up tanking his High School career. After an incident involving a log, a cold river, an Alderman's son, and a bear, near ended up with two people going into a hospital, Bernie included. This led to his father giving him a note in his bedroom, not really forcing the issue face-to-face like any good nervous catholic, the note simply read 'Join the Military.' Montana has a long history of sending its sons to the Army, from the days of Abraham Lincoln to the Korean War. So Bernie joined the United States Coast Guard, a service primarily focused on waterborne operations, the biggest body of water in Montana is a lake. The Coast Guard found Bernie his true calling, being helpful. Not in the simple politeness most Midwestern's show, but truly being helpful. Saving lives, jumping into danger, and saving the folk who need saving. Six months into his first year of service, he entered into the Boatswain's mate rate program, becoming one of the many men and women who the Coast Guard deems fit enough to drive small-boats out to emergencies on America's coast. From there, he was assigned to San Fierro Small-Boat Station 17. Only leaving for a short deployment to Maine, and then he was back in San Fierro. The good times didn't last, and Bernie eventually left the service, deciding that two terms of active duty was enough service to be proud of. He reconnected with a friend from Montana in Los Santos, and had to adjust to civilian life from there on out. Two months of trouble led to his hands becoming too idle for his taste, he decided on leaning on what he was good at. He signed up to Volunteer for the Los Santos Fire Department. He's been there ever since. This thread follows his story, good and bad, in the Los Santos Fire Department.
  3. This thread will follow the life of Fire Captain II Jess Williams who is the current Commanding Officer of Air Operations. Jess originally came from a small farming village called "Camphill Village" in Minnesota. During her late teens, Jess had gone through a very traumatic experience of her boyfriend at the time physically abusing her, to the point when one night, he almost beat her to death. She was spared that gloomy fate, by two responding paramedics, and her ex-boyfriend still serves behind steel for attempted murder. She was a total wreck for a couple of years, continuing to work as a farmhand around her parents land, never going out to socialize and just saving her earnings with no real goals in mind. Once she slowly came around and gained more confidence in herself once again, she decided that she wants to move away from Minnesota and start a new life in a new environment - city life in Los Santos. A lot happened throughout Jess' time in Los Santos, she met a group of new friends who call themselves "The Losers Club", she bounced through multiple jobs, working for a group of Russian's, The Noodle Exchange in Vespucci, Vespucci Bookstore. Jess can be rather clumsy the odd time, and to her detriment, she one afternoon fell off her apartments balcony on Goma Street and busted her thick head, to which a very large EMT responded to her distress after a local pedestrian called for aid, the EMT stated to Jess "You would look good in a firefighters helmet", this stuck with Jess for a couple of weeks, then over a month, it started to dawn on her that she was very interested in becoming a firefighter, and more prominently, a paramedic, her life was spared that horrific night by the two paramedics, Jess dreamed of becoming like them, and giving back to the world for her spared life. Jess gets accepted into the Los Santos Fire Department and now thrives as a station captain of fire station 3 in Davis, she studied hard to become the best firefighter that she can, though not all is sunshine and rainbows. She has seen some extremely gnarly things during her years, seeing someone gushing out blood is a daily occurrence for her. After all of her years of service, Jess reaches the rank of Fire Captain II, a Senior Captain role in the department and now continues to strive to make the department a better place for not only her colleagues, but for the citizens of Los Santos the same.

  6. LOS SANTOS FIRE DEPARTMENT PRESS RELEASE - What is USAR? WHAT IS USAR?⠀⠀Written by: Elise ReynaPublished: 22/12/2020The USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) has the primary mission and objective, as the name suggests, to enable the Los Santos Fire Department with the ability to carry out Search and Rescue Missions. Whilst it may seem really bare-bones in and by itself, USAR actually has much more other areas that are carried out on a day-to-day basis, this article will go in-depth in all of those areas to explain the real mission statement of the USAR.Urban Search and Rescue is a sub-divisional team within the Los Santos Fire Department which Firefighters are able to volunteer for, firefighters that do wish to join are required to have a couple of pre-defined certifications and are required to go through a hefty application stage, entry test and an induction process, this assists the Los Santos Fire Department in choosing only the most qualified candidates for the position of USAR. Furthermore, USAR utilizes specific fleet vehicles which for the purpose of this article will be separated into each different team so it is easier to explain;Rescue Engine (RE-3) - This unit is responsible for responding to any structure fire and is the front-line for doing primary searches by going directly inside of burning buildings and searching for any survivors, were they to find any survivors it becomes their primary objective to get those survivors out of the burning buildings in as safe of a manner as possible. Any type of structure fire would most likely fill up the building with dark smoke, so the visibility for for firefighters would be close to none, firefighters mainly rely on walls for their navigation as well as verbal communication/callouts from people.Search and Rescue (K9-3) - This unit is responsible for responding to any calls in which a person's location isn't specifically pinpointed to a small enough area for a regular response. Calls that require response from this division usually require search teams over a large area to pinpoint the exact location of an incident, this is usually around forests, mountains or coastal lines. The division is responsible for establishing multiple search teams to cover as much ground as possible and even has the authorized use of a helicopter. This team also utilizes specially trained K9 Rescue Medical Dogs which will track down the location of someone who may have found themselves lost or have issues designating their location when contacting Emergency Services. The fire department's K9 dogs are specially trained to locate specific items, humans and human remains (bodies). These dogs also have some very basic skill of treatment against anxiety attacks as well as panic attacks.Hazardous Material Response (Squad-3) - This unit is responsible for, as the name would suggest, responding to calls which would include hazardous chemicals (including and not limited to; explosives, gases, flammable liquids, flammable solids, oxidizing substances, toxic/infectious substances, radioactive material, corrosives). Alongside Support Services, they also assist with the cleanup process of any hazardous materials and leaks.Swift Water Response (SWR-3) - This unit is responsible for any emergency calls that come from or near bodies of water. This includes and is not limited to; Oceans, Rivers or Lakes. This division primarily focuses on rescue, however, it does also have an included Search element, in cases where the people are unable to be located and are described to be on or in water, Water Rescue is the division who locates these people alongside the assistance of other divisions and agencies. Water Rescue also has an element that focuses on recovery, this is not necessarily limited to /only/ body recovery, most of the time, Water Rescue is responsible for searching larger bodies of water for items and attempting to locate evidence for the police or just a victim who may have lost their wallet.Technical Rescue (USAR-3) - This unit is responsible for any technical calls that come in to the Fire Department, technical calls can range from a regular cat being stuck in tree to a call of people stuck in an elevator. Essentially, Technical Rescue is, as the name suggests, a team that specializes in calls that require some type of technical intervention. This team also ensures safety on electrical hazard scene and usually handles such calls by ensuring that a hazard is turned off so it is no longer hazardous.Logistical Support (UT-3) - This unit is responsible for any calls that requires Logistical Support (equipment hauling or personnel hauling). This team is also just utilized for transportation of equipment or personnel between stations.Opinion & A deep dive into USAR calls:I have spent 2 full weeks within the Urban Search and Rescue Team, responding to calls with them, interviewing them and getting a general outlook alongside them in their work. The first thing, within my own personal opinion that I can say is that I believe the USAR team is basically a SWAT department within the LSFD. These guys are the elite of the elite, the most professional people I've ever worked with and the calls that I've seen whilst working alongside them and everything they did was bloody amazing. Here's a some of the calls they responded to during my time within the USAR team;Mountain RescueHosue FireMotor Vehicle Accident w/ EntrapmentSwift Water Rescue DrillConclusionOverall, for me, it was an eye-opening and learning experience being within the USAR Team. I've learned a lot during my time with them and hopefully, you, the reader have as well!

In this day and age for Los Santos, this helps raise funds that provide vital aid to citizens and our department will continue to raise money for charity and never not put our community first. Me and Brendan have been friends since I first moved to Los Santos and joined the department and we were both close friends with Freddy so it felt only right to do this for Freddy. For both of us Freddy had major impacts in our lives and he will live on in everyones memories. Not just for myself and Brendan. But, the same goes for almost everyone in the Los Santos Fire Department and State Fire Marshal's, Freddy had a heart of gold and would give his all for everyone.

  13. LOS SANTOS FIRE DEPARTMENT PRESS RELEASE - Meet The Employee: Molly Steele Meet the Employee: Molly Steele⠀⠀Written by: Alice MacCarthyPublished: 27/10/2020The Los Santos Fire Department is made up of a dedicated team of employees who serve Los Santos and surrounding areas with courage, integrity and pride every day of their lives. Over the next couple of months you'll be able to learn a bit more about the individuals that give it their all to keep you safe and well.This week, Public Relations sat down with Station Three's Captain Molly Steele of USAR Task Force 3. Molly talks to us about her motivations for joining the Los Santos Fire Department, what she enjoys about the work and advice for those looking to become a firefighter. Interview Transcript⠀ ⠀ What made you want to be a Firefighter and join the Los Santos Fire Department? "Prior to 2011 I worked for San Andreas Medical Services, frequently staging for fire calls, my adrenaline fanatic personality coupled with my love of helping others, gave me the desire to get involved. I wanted to be inside the fire, I wanted the adrenaline of fighting the fire from inside and the overall sense of achievement once the fire is out and the people are saved. Truth be told it just seemed more 'bad-ass'." What motivates you in your job role or in the department in general? "Once the fire is out the world is a better place. It's a compulsive need to do what ever possible to put that fire out, to rescue the people. That's both literally and figuratively speaking; the same applies to mountain rescues, high angle rope operations and other high octane incidents. I guess you could say it's an adrenaline- junkies high, to be in an extremely dangerous situation - yet we do it to save a life, and that's the best feeling there is. So every minute of everyday is spent working towards that goal; train train and train! It motivates me to work knowing that what I and my fellow Firefighters do will contribute to saving a life." How do you deal with the day-today stress of the job, being a Firefighter? "I focus on the bigger goal of the fire service to save lives and protect property, and as a Captain that's a goal I share with my fellow Firefighters. You don't think about the stress if you're constantly 'on the go', whether that be training or responding to calls - that's why it's important to have time to 'unwind', this may be just hanging out with your fellow Firefighters around the table or spending time by yourself; reading, watching TV, cooking...etc. Personally I spend my time planning, both on and off duty. I watch training videos, I read the paper to learn about all the new developments in our city, I walk different places and drive different roads. I like to do a lot of research into our area and also discover different techniques in fire and rescue. This knowledge improves mine and others work in the field, while also helping me to unwind from the stress." Whats your favourite part of working for the Los Santos Fire Department? "The low frequency high risk calls and training - tower rescues, dive calls, cave searches and also structure fires. I'd be lying if I didn't say we're adrenaline junkies and better yet we're saving a life - what can be better than that? There's also the comradery and social spirit; it's a strong bond that no other work environment has." Whats any advice you'd give to someone who wants to join the Los Santos Fire Department? "Be a sponge - soak up as much as you can. Ask questions, attend training, ride along, try things out, make mistakes and just keep developing yourself." ⠀ ⠀

  15. New fleet enhances Fire Department services Friday, September the 20th, 2019 LSFD Public Relations: Chloe MacKenzie The new vehicles lined up in the yard to Fire Station Seven LOS SANTOS - It's a proud day for the Los Santos Fire Department who have just received order of 18 new emergency vehicles to the fleet, drastically updating and improving the service the department provides to the metropolitan area of Los Santos and rural southern San Andreas. The delivery arrived in the early hours of Friday morning in convoy from MTL Fire Apparatus, arriving at Fire Station 7 around midnight. The new fleet will replace almost half of the Fire Department's operational old and outdated fleet. Featured are: 2 new tower ladder trucks, 7 new ambulances, 2 new brush trucks, 1 new swift water rescue vehicle and 6 new command and administrative vehicles. New Tower Ladder Trucks: Quint 1 and Quint 2 Two of the most impressive additions to the fleet are the tower ladder trucks call-signed Quint 1 and Quint 2. The MTL Fire Apparatus 105' Rear Mount Platform trucks replace a previous Brute Utility Mid Mount Platform truck under the callsign Truck 1, which had been out of service for several years due to a number of technical faults. The new apparatus can now carry a crew of four, in addition to 500 US Gallons of water that the previous ladder truck did not carry. The vehicles serve as both ladder and fire suppression units, enabling them to handle a wide variety of fire call outs, traffic collisions, medical emergencies, public service duties, technical rescues and more! One of the most notable features is the 105 foot tower ladder with a bucket, that can reach up to about 8 stories on most buildings commonly found in Downtown or Little Seoul. You'll likely see these around the streets of Los Santos for the foreseeable future due to their hybrid capabilities. New Ambulances: Rescue Ambulances 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 To replace the aging fleet of seven Bronto Ambulances, the Los Santos Fire Department has opted for Bravado Bison pickup chassis and converted them to Ambulances by MTL Fire Apparatus; after a few month long trial. The new Ambulances are more economical, featuring LED lighting and enhanced computer control in addition to higher visibility reflective chevrons on the rear. New Brush Trucks: Brush 1 and 2 To replace a number of Vapid Contenders, the Fire Department sought to choose the much larger and more robust Vapid Sadler pickup chassis modified to a Brush Engine by MTL Fire Apparatus. The vehicles work much like their much larger companions, the Type I Engines for structure firefighting seen in the streets of Los Santos; how-ever instead these Type V Engines are more suited for wildland fires and off-road operations in the mountains and deserts of Blaine County. At a much smaller water tank of 400 US Gallons, the Brush Patrol vehicles can be seen patrolling rural areas looking for potential fire hazards and mitigating them before they become a catastrophic wildfire. They can also be used to provide a quick response to medical emergencies and rescues off road. New Swift Water Rescue 1 One of the more specialist vehicles is the Maritime Division Swift Water Rescue 1, also on a Vapid Salder pickup chassis supplied by MTL. The new water rescue vehicle allows Firefighters to access a variety of areas affected by water emergencies, such as rivers and lakes. The vehicle can deploy a small boat from ontop to perform rescues of those stranded in water as well as tow a much larger boat for incidents off the coast of Los Santos or in the Alamo Sea. New Pickups: Battalion 1, Chief 1, Public Relations 2, Marshal 1, 2 and Fast Response 1 Lastly the fleet saw the addition of six new Vapid Caracara pickups converted by MTL Fire Apparatus. The new vehicles will be in addition to and replace a number of Declasse Grangers and Bravado Buffalos as Chief command units, public relations, fire marshals and fast response vehicles. These pickups can be fitted out for almost any use needed to get equipment and personnel to a variety of scenes and Fire Department situations. The Fire Department is very pleased to receive the new vehicles which will greatly enhance the service the Los Santos Fire Department provides to the citizens and visitors to Los Santos and Blaine Counties. Feel free to come and have a look at our new vehicles, get a tour and take photos!
  16. Roof collapses after house fire in Banham Canyon Wednesday, July the 10th 2019 LSFD Public Relations: Chloe MacKenzie Fire apparatus surround the burning building. BANHAM CANYON - At 18:56 on Tuesday, July the 9th 2019, the Los Santos Fire Department were notified of a Brush Fire in the Banham Canyon, a standard Brush response was dispatched to the scene with Air Operations being put on standby. How-ever while en route further reports came in of a structure on fire, and the response was upgraded. On arrival at Inseno Road it was apparent that a three story coastal home was heavily involved in fire showing from the roof. An offensive attack was initiated and firefighters searched the structure, finding no one inside. Firefighters outside headed to the roof to try and knock down the fire while other firefighters surrounded the property to prevent spread to surrounding exposed property and brush. Due to the steepness and height of the roof, Firefighters struggled to make access to fire burning in the attic as it weakened the structure of the roof. At 19:34 a partial collapse of the roof occurred, forcing Firefighters off the roof and into defensive mode - meaning no one is allowed in or near the structure. The style of attack was changed as Firefighters focused the deluge guns on the roof and hit it with fire hoses from the outside. At 19:43 knock down was declared with the incident being concluded a short while later at 20:01. There were no reported injuries or damage to other properties. The cause and the cost of damage is currently being being investigated. Dispatched LSFD Units: B1, BR1, E1, E2, E3, RB1 The house while the roof was involved in fire.
  17. Firefighters respond to a beached Tugboat at the Alamo Sea Sunday, July the 21st 2019 LSFD Public Information Officer: Chief Chloe MacKenzie A tug rests on the beach as firefighter assess the situation. ALAMO SEA - At 13:20 on Sunday, July the 21st 2019, your Los Santos Fire Department were called to reports of a tugboat that had beached itself off Marina Drive near Sandy Shores. Concerned for the safety of those on board and the risk to the environment, fire department resources were dispatched to the scene. On arrival members of Engine 1 and the elite Maritime Division found a tugboat that had indeed beached itself off Marina Drive. Members assessed the situation and determined that there was no threat to the environment, no significant damage to the boat and most importantly no one was injured. It was at this point additional resources arrived on scene to liaise with the Captain of the stranded vessel and the Los Santos Police Department about recovering the vessel that was resting in a precarious position and still posed a threat to life. Initially it was determined the best cause of action would be to utilise other tugboats to pull it back out to sea, how-ever both rivers into the Alamo Sea have low bridges, waterfalls and rapids. This option was quickly ruled out as not possible while other options were considered amongst several parties on scene. The Fire Department's primary concern being that the tilting Tug was in an unsafe position and could cause injury if not recovered properly. Through cooperation with the Maritime Division leader of the Fire Department, the Captain of the ship and the Los Santos Police Department, a plan was formed to pull the tugboat back out to sea using mooring cables, a team of dozers and rocks on the seabed. Shortly after reaching out, a team of Dozers from HVY arrived on scene to liaise with the parties involved. The cables were attached to the dozers and handed over to the Fire Department's dive team to secure to the seabed, and then the tug. Once the land and water was cleared of pedestrians, boats and vehicles - the dozers pulled the mooring cables and brought the tug back into the water. The operation was a success and the boat was able to resume operations in the Alamo Sea. There were no reported injuries, hazards to the environment or damage to the vehicle involved and by 15:45 was declared concluded. Dispatched LSFD Units: B1, E1, LP1 and MR1 as Dive 1, MS1

Reinstatement of Ryan Lionheart Deputy Fire Chief Lionheart In may mid-month Former Fire Chief Ryan Lionheart was reinstated into the Los Santos Fire Department as our Deputy Chief of Operations. When asked to comment on his return, the new Deputy Chief had this to say: Training Firefighters conduct training in Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus at Mirror Park.This month in the Los Santos Fire Department, we have had a heavy focus on the training regime of our department, particularly in fire & rescue due to last month's release of our new guideline in that field, not to mention the influx of probationary firefighters who need the lessons. The training that's been conducted with our department has varied from PPE kit checks to ventilation and primary search operations. We have also arranged BLS lectures with the Police Department, headed by Lieutenant Klenova.With recruitment now reopened as of last Thursday, we anticipate a lot more probationary firefighters and thus more training for them and our staff present. Our goal is not only to make sure the firefighters we send out on calls are trained to the standard we're known by, but are trained to perform beyond the cities expectations and perhaps, beyond the expectations we, as a department, set our employees. It goes without saying, safety is paramount and that is one of our fundamental goals, to keep the public and our employee's safe and through dedicated training, we will achieve that.
