Dennis and i participated in a run, organized by the tule river tribe, to support our local first responders and in honor of the brave firefighters who sacrificed their lives. it was a very humbling experience. dennis was asked to carry an american flag at the head of the group of runners. he ran with this flag for over 16 miles. he was truly amazing. i don’t know how he did it. he proudly gave his flag to a local firefighter at the end of the run. 🇺🇸 i cannot take credit for running the entire course, but i pushed myself beyond what i thought was possible. to all of our first responders, thank you for putting others above yourselves. you are the definition of selfless service. to those involved in this tragic event, please know of our love and support. you are in our thoughts and prayers. ❤️ #lifeisprecious#portervillefiredepartment #portervillelibraryfire #selflessservice#thankyoufirstresponders
Undercover officers with the california highway patrol take down suspect on hollywood boulevard yesterday. judging from their posture and long rifles, this man was wanted for more then leaving his car parked on the freeway.

Chp participates in active shooter/mass casualty incident training exercise
yesterday, members of your san gorgonio pass area chp office participated in a multi-agency mass casualty incident training scenario at north mountain middle school in san jacinto. several hundred first responder partners from multiple agencies including riverside county sheriff’s department, hemet pd, calfire, amr, u.s. forest service, soboba fire department, riverside regional gang task force, and reach medivac, to name a few, worked together to complete a common goal of ensuring the safety of your loved ones if the need were to arise.
the exercise was designed to simulate an active shooter incident resulting in multiple levels of injuries. first responders were broken into several components including contact teams, rescue task force teams, casualty collection points, ambulance staging, medivac landing zone and triage areas. after finding and eliminating the “threat”, first responders worked together to triage, treat and evacuate wounded parties until the area was secure.
training like this is crucial to establishing valuable protocols across multiple agencies for real-life scenarios. communication among different agencies is always challenging in stressful situations and practicing tactics, movement and life-saving treatment is beneficial to all those involved.
we want to thank the riverside county sheriff’s department for providing this valuable training as well as the san jacinto unified school district for allowing us the use of their facilities.

explorers must put a tq on the arm of the downed officer, after the officer is in the vehicle. the second explorer must apply an israeli bandage while being driven to the hospital. the training entails medical accuracy under stress and time limits.
Had the opportunity to attend @valpo_canines comedy event! what a great turnout and show!! while we were there, k9 vega and his partner hopped up in leona. k9 vega wasn't to sure what was going on!! ************************************** veteran owned and operated.
leona is designed to honor those that are willing to give up their life for people they do not even know, in hopes that freedom will always be the way of america.
leona is a visual reminder to people everyday that the military, police, k9, firefighters and other first responders daily put their life on the line for that freedom that we as americans enjoy and sometimes take for granted.
never forget those that are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice.
Today is national random acts of kindness day. kindness is a beautiful thing every day, but today we're paying extra attention to the little things that brighten us up and inspire us to do just a little more. has someone ever paid for your morning coffee or sent you a thank you note for all you do, or even that one little thing you did that changed their world? what random kindnesses have your fellow officers experienced that lifted them up? what kindness are you sharing with the world today?

It's just too easy to take things for granted, even people. especially people, perhaps.
i rarely think about the sacrifices that many make just to do their job - the things they are signed up to see and deal with, bringing the rescue.
today we wanted to say thank you to our very own estevan fire & rescue crew. we appreciate you!
i hope anyone reading this will be inspired to reach out and share a small act of #kindness - our first responders are a great example of selflessness, time and time again.
Pick-up day at the california highway patrol academy for
ctc i-20. today these cadets will embark on their long journey to becoming officers. life at the academy will be challenging, both physically and mentally. we wish them luck as they will spend the next 27 weeks learning all the necessary training and skills to provide the best safety, service, and security to the people of california.
Car fire at mccowan and nugget around 3pm. sirens approached as i pulled into the plaza to call 911 for the car well ablaze. by the time i had camera in hand and stepped out of the car, it was already being put out. we have awesome first responders. <3 (taken with a 200mm zoom and cropped 40%)
This was a job worth sharing. i complain a lot about the amount of boring, wasted, down time i have as a tow truck driver. it’s all or nothing. one day your back to back with calls, no breaks, 7:30am to 9:30 pm. other days your sitting in your truck at a gas station or walmart parking lot for as long as 2hrs. it’s gets you down. start to slip into a lethargic “this is pointless” mentality. but then, there’s days like this when you get a call about a woman trapped in her car, sliding off a ledge in the snow, with police and emt on their way. this day was terrifying, and incredible all at the same time. the poor woman was trying to get home after a big snow, with semi bald tires, lost control, and slid back down the hill and off a ledge. the cars undercarriage caught the edge of the blacktop, and temporarily held her in limbo, all four wheels off the ground. a passerby saw the car and ran over, using his body weight to hold the front end of the car down enough to keep it from sliding. the driver was trapped, forced to keep her foot on the gas and break, waiting for help. a volunteer firefighter and i were the first on scene, and were both equally surprised by the seriousness of the accident. immediately i looked for the nearest and largest tree, limped my winch cable, and told the fireman to look for a hook point on the car. it took about 15 min, 3 other firefighters and 2 police officers- but we got it done. it taught me that my job, your job-any job- that requires some amount of training that could save yours or someone else’s life-at some point in your career- some day, it will happen. and it means i need to treat every day like it’s going to happen. mentally, spiritually, physically being aware and ready for the unexpected. i’d like to give a shout out to our police and first responders here in northern az! thank you guys so much for your commitment and drive to get there in time, and take care of business! #thankyoufirstresponders#sar
