Annual Fund-raising is Underway

It is time for our annual fund-raising drive.  We will be reaching out to Kern County residents and businesses in the coming weeks to raise money for local, worthy causes. We will also be sponsoring a Business Directory consisting of fire prevention articles, emergency phone numbers and advertisements from local concerned business owners.

Although Local 1301 has been raising money for charities this way for 26 years, there are always reasonable concerns that these solicitations by phone are part of a scam. We want to ensure our members and the public that calls the may receive in the next few weeks are in fact legitimate and have been authorized and approved by the Local 1301 Board of Directors.

We want to thank everyone for supporting us this year. If you would like to donate, please click the link below to donate via PayPal.

Christmas tree fires are some of the deadliest home fires that fire fighters respond to. If you bring a live tree into your house, make sure to water it every day and do not leave the lights on when you are out of the house or asleep. #IAFFSafetyTips
Happy Thanksgiving from our fire family to yours! For those of us on duty today thank you for your dedication and sacrifices of time away from family
Your #KernCountyFirefighters advise you to cook with caution and pay attention in the kitchen this Thanksgiving. We wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving! #IAFFsafetytips
This week is Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW). Nearly every week, a first responder is killed while helping clear a roadway crash. Many more sustain life-altering injuries. Our members work tirelessly to save lives at traffic incident scenes as safely and quickly as possible. But we need motorists to do their part to protect responders by slowing down, moving over and staying alert when approaching traffic incidents. #CRSW #IAFF
Time to check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms when you change your clocks for Daylight Saving Time . Press and hold – you should hear a loud beep if it is good. More than 400 people die each year in the United States from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. When you install smoke alarms, install carbon monoxide detectors.  #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips
Halloween is super exciting for kids, but can also be very dangerous. On average, twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween compared to any other day of the year. Stay safe by staying VISIBLE: bring flashlights, glow sticks and reflective goodie bags, and add reflective tape to costumes. #IAFFSafetyTips #IAFF
Earlier today our law enforcement partners stood bold in the face of danger and in a senseless act of violence, a Deputy Sheriff was tragically killed. Another Deputy is currently being treated at a local hospital. We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the Kern County Sheriffs Office and Kern Law Enforcement Association. Our thoughts and prayers are with the deputies families, friends, and loved ones.
Your #KernCountyFirefighters would like to wish you a Happy Independence Day!  As you celebrate this 4th of July, please remember that if you choose to light fireworks, make sure you are doing it in a safe and legal way.
Congratulations to our new Fire Chief Aaron Duncan. On behalf of the 1301 board we look forward to working with you on important issues that are ever present throughout our department. We must forge a strong labor/management leadership role so together we may lead this great department into the future. 

                                 David Nelson,

Let us introduce you to an amazing young woman Hayliee.
 
Hayliee reached out to us to replace our barbeque as part of her Silver Award Project for Girl Scouts. She was moved upon hearing the theft, as she has many memories from her childhood around this barbecue and the positive impacts on our community.  

Many may not know that the Silver Award is the second-highest award she can earn as a Girl Scout Cadette.  To be successful, she must identify an area that her project can have a lasting impact, set goals, and develop a plan to make her project successful. She must also demonstrate leadership through the entire project, from development and fundraising to project completion. 

It has been a wonderful experience working with Hayliee on this project and we are thankful for the partnership and her desire to make a difference. 
Anyone willing to assist Hayliee in reaching her fundraising goals can do so by submitting donations in person at our office, payable to Kern County Firefighters Muster 
7900 Downing Ave Suite D
 or via PayPal by visiting

Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women of the @lacountyfd and our brothers and sisters of @iafflocal1014
Today we honor all those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedom and democracy. For us, it is a reminder to never forget and continue to honor our fallen service members.

Please have a safe Memorial Day. Your #KernCountyFirefighters are on duty and ready to answer the call.
When grilling this weekend remember to follow these easy safety tips:            
•Be sure to always have an adult supervising kids when the grill is on.
•Remove all flammable items that are near the grill.
•Be sure to keep fire safety tools around like fire extinguishers.
Today is International Firefighter Appreciation Day and we would like to say thank you to the 500 members that make up #YourKernCountyFirefighters. The last few days have been ever busy with two fires that burned almost 4,000 acres and a close call in the City of Delano, where a firefighter was hit by a moving vehicle. We are proud of each and everyone of you and your sacrifices do not go unnoticed. On behalf of your 1301 Board, Thank You! 

County of Kern, California Kern County Fire Department

For smoke alarms with non-replaceable 10 year batteries check your smoke alarms when you change your clocks for Daylight Saving Time​. Press and hold – you should hear a loud beep if it is good. For smoke alarms with replaceable batteries change the batteries when you change your clock. #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips
Two-thirds of home fire deaths result from broken smoke alarms. Check your smoke alarms when you change the clock this Sunday March 14th. #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips
Before placing a child in the bath or getting in the bath yourself, test the water by moving your hand, wrist and forearm through the water. The water should feel warm, not hot, to the touch. #IAFFsafetytips
