Signal 99 - 5996 Arentine Way 
July 19, 2009
Signal 99 - Structure Fire
5996 Arentine Way

On the afternoon of Sunday July 19, 2009, the Cicero Fire Department was activated by the Onondaga County Emergency Communications Center (E911) at 1617 hours for a reported residential structure fire at 5996 Arentine Way, during the initial dispatch information the dispatched reported there were several callers reporting the rear of the residence was on fire.  Dispatch Times

The fire started in the kitchen / dining area on a sunny Sunday afternoon in a populated residential neighborhood in Cicero. One of the neighbors reported that they saw smoke and called the fire into the 911 Center. No one was home at the time as neighbors checked and removed two propane tanks on the back deck before the fire department arrived. Within a few minutes of seeing smoke, the fire broke through the back of the house. The wind escalated the fire load causing flames so intense that the first fire units could only use an exterior attack to fight the fire. Smoke could be seen in the air from as far away as Sylvan Beach, and heat from the fire melted the siding on a neighboring house.

Cicero Fire box 10-24-11 called for the following units to be dispatched “Mutual Aid” along with the Cicero Fire Department. Those units were Brewerton (Ladder Truck), South Bay (Rescue Pumper) and Mattydale (Rescue # 1) designated as the “Rapid Intervention Team” along with NAVAC Ambulance. Clay (stand by at Station # 1), East Syracuse (stand by at station 2) and North Syracuse (Engine # 6) special call into the scene for additional man power along with NAVAC Ambulances and Rehab Teams.

Firefighters removed whatever was salvageable and suddenly the neighborhood turned out, sorting and cleaning items including pictures that were laid out on the grass to dry. "To see the neighborhood pull together like this is very unique. We don't see it this often at all," said Cicero Fire Chief Dave Pangaro.

The Onondaga County Emergency Management Office says the fire has been traced back to a faulty extension cord in the dining room.

Cicero Truck # 1 (Firefighter Ostrander) and crew six firefighters arrived at 0634 hours stretching two 1 3/4 hand lines knocking the bulk of the fire down.

Cicero Engine # 1 (Lieutenant Florczykowski) and crew of five firefighters arrived at 0636 hours picking up the hydrant at the corner of South Bay Road and Whiting Road to supply Cicero Truck # 1.

Fire units on scene quickly knocked the fire down, crews were able to salvage an antique street rod, however located in the rear of the garage was a 1935 Ford Coupe that was damaged as a result of the fire.

The cause of the fire was a heating lamp that was located in a 3 x 3 dog house that was located outside of the garage on the c / d corner. It is apparent the light got to hot starting the dog house on fire and then extending to the garage.

911 Memorial

Since 2009, the Cicero Volunteer Fire Department has been working on a monument to honor the men of the New York City Fire Department that were killed during the September 11th, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. Although the monument could not be finished by the 10 Year Commemoration, a dedication ceremony was held behind Cicero Fire Station #1. Due to delays caused by Hurricane Irene, the monument was not finished until October 2011.

While a fitting memorial now stands in the Cicero Fire Department Memorial Park, behind Station #1, the members of the Cicero Fire Department have undertaken a plan to honor local heroes and families with the Memorial Brick project. The Fire Department is selling bricks to be used in the Memorial Park, with engraved names to serve as a lasting monument to your loved ones.

Signal 99 - Lakeshore Road

Cicero, NY -- A fire heavily damaged a Cicero home Saturday, killing the family dog.

No one was home when the fire was called in around 3:30 p.m. at 6112 Lakeshore Road, said Cicero Second Assistant Fire Chief Ronald Florczykowski, who lives nearby.

He said the flames were coming through the garage door and a window on the side of the garage when he arrived seconds after the call went out.

Flames burned through power lines to the house, forcing firefighters to avoid live wires in the yard until National Grid workers arrived and shut off power.

Florczykowski said despite efforts that involved firefighters from Cicero, Mattydale, Brewerton, South Bay and Bridgeport, "we were unable to save the family pet."

The one-story house was heavily damaged by the smokey fire. The house's interior was blackened and the attached garage on the west side of the home was destroyed.

A Red Cross disaster relief team was at the scene as were members of the extended family.

New York State Assembly Citation

On November 25, 2009 the Cicero Fire Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched for a medical alarm for difficulty breathing on Alizarin Avenue in the Town of Cicero. On arrival the crews quickly determined the female patient was in full cardiac arrest. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was initiated and maintained by Cicero Fire personal at the scene and while enroute to the receiving hospital. The patient did survive for several days, but ultimately did not survive to hospital discharge.

Ronald Barling EMT-B, William Manley II EMT-B, John Czajkowski, Ronald Florczykowski, Richard Mayers EMT-B, James Perrin Jr., Christopher Hines  BLS-IT, (Ret. EMT-P,) Robert Arnold, Steve Schlie EMT-B, Eric Volcko began CPR within minutes of arrival. Although the patient did not survive to the hospital discharge, the sheer fact that the patient was delivered to the receiving hospital with pulses and respirations is a testament to the crew on the scene. The patient was provided with every opportunity for survival that day.

The Facts About Your Tax Dollars You Didn’t Know



DO YOU KNOW WHO PROTECTS YOUR PROPERTY?
 
 
When you pick up the phone to call 911 because you family member is sick, injured or the house is on fire, who will respond to your call for help? The 64 men and women of the Cicero Volunteer Fire Department will and have answered your call for help 925 times in 2008 and 730 times so far this year.

In 2009, the Town of Cicero received $1,378.621.00 in fire protection tax dollars from you and the other residents of the Town of Cicero.

The tax payers who reside in the Cicero Fire Protection district in 2009 paid at total of $620,890.76 in fire tax to the town. The members of the Cicero Fire Department would like to inform you as a tax payer that we only received $314,650.00. 
THE FACTS 
 
The Cicero Fire Department currently provides Fire and Emergency Medical coverage to 45 % of the town’s residences and businesses which incorporates the largest area of the town. However, in 2009 we only received 22.8 % of the total fire protection money that was collected by the town.

During our budget discussions with the town, for 2010 we have asked for $465,000.00 of the $620,890.76 collected to provide the highest level of service to you.

We are asking you to contact the Town Supervisor and Board (699-1414) and attend the town budget hearing on November 5th to question why your tax dollars are being allotted to other town departments who don’t provide primary services to your business or residence.

                    (Print) Information Sheet

Air-1
Last night, just before midnight, the Onondaga County 2010 Budget was approved by a vote of 11 to 8. This Budget has the Air One Program funded at 2 less pilots and 200 hours less flying time. This is a good compromise during these tough economic times, as it keeps that valuable tool available next year for all Public Safety Agencies in Onondaga County.

This year was the biggest threat of losing the helicopter that we have seen. When we got the message to you, you got involved and mobilized a very effective response to your respective legislators. As a result, Air One remained funded.

Sheriff Kevin Walsh and I want to thank you for you help in this important budget battle. We appreciate being partners with you in the public safety efforts within our County.

Air-1

With NYS proposed budget cuts and layoffs, there are legislators that are looking at the possibility of taking Air-1 permanently out of service.

Air-1 is a full public safety helicopter which has been used to save lives of both our first responders and citizens. Many of you have been involved with Air-1 during many of these rescues over the years and know the valuable tool that this helicopter is for this County.

Now is the time to contact your friends, neighbors, fellow workers and have them contact their respective legislator, asking them to keep Air-1.  If you are not sure which legislator is yours, you can go to
www.SheriffWalsh.com and select the Community Crime Mapping Program he has on that website.  That will show you which Legislative District you live in.  Then go to www.ongov.net and go to "Select a Department" at the bottom of the home page.  Select "County Legislature" for the Department and on the left side of that page is "The Members", which will give you the name, photo, address, and phone numbers of each legislator by District #.

There has not been a more important time during the 35 years that the Sheriff's have had an aviation unit, to get involved and contact your elected legislator.

Thank you for your support in keeping Air-1 in Onondaga County.

Deeper Cuts Wanted for Air-1 (Video-News Channel 9)

October 3, 2009

We are putting a support Air One choice on the Sheriff's web site today. That will be used to keep the public updated by going to www.sheriffwalsh.com.

Manny Falcone started a group in Facebook - Save Air-One, and I am told there are several hundred people already signed on.

We got thru the Ways & Means Committee. Now comes up a public hearing on October 8th at 7 PM. We are hoping that there will be some testimony on why Air One is needed in Onondaga County. Then the Legislature meets on October 13th at 2:30 PM to vote on the budget. This is the time that we will want uniforms in the room in front of the legislators. Their presence reminds them of our support for Air One as they vote. This is also the time that some legislator can bring about a new resolution to put the Aviation Unit down, or reduce it so that it could not support fire and EMS. That means we have 12 days to get people to reach out to their own legislator and either speak to or email them on this important issue.

Carol Chetkovich in her comprehensive book Real Heat: Gender and Race in the Urban Fire Service reveals what it's like to enter a burning building. "...those entering a building are often confronted with such intense heat and heavy smoke that it is impossible for them to walk upright or to make out their surroundings. They wear face masks and air tanks to allow them to breathe, but the tanks are heavy, the time limited and the breathing process awkward. The location is almost always completely unfamiliar, filled with obstacles and unknown hazards. While the engine crew works on the ground with water to put the fire out, a truck crew ventilates the building, opening a sufficiently large hole in the roof to allow heat, smoke and gasses to escape so that the ground crew can do its work. Roof work is not only dangerous, but generally requires a high level of strength, skill and coordination. If there are possible victims, either crew may become involved in search and rescue (or body recovery), which means working one's way through this foreign environment in darkness and heat, unsure what you may find, taking care not to become trapped or disoriented."

Announcements

May 15, 2011

The department's "Family Picnic" will be held on Sunday July 10, 2011 at Enchanted Forest.

I hope this date will provide enough time for our members and family's to attend as this event is for the kids as we the members spend several hours throughout the year at the Station away from them.

To provide a brief overall of the event that day (pending no changes at next months meeting).

• The park opens at 0800 hours, members will be responsible for transportation to the park, if anyone wishes to meet at Station #1 that morning at 0700 hours everyone can follow each other.

• There was a brief discussion at the meeting this month (May) if we have several members who meet and follow each other we could purchase donuts / drinks to stop halfway to utilize the bathrooms and stretch (we'll discuss further at the June meeting).

• Once everyone arrives at the park, everyone will be issued their own ticket for entry, information on where the reserved pavilion will be for lunch / dinner and the kids will be provided their game card (pending approval at Junes meeting).

• The meal package the committee chose is the "Cascade Falls Combo" which includes the following:

Lunch (1130 - 1230) Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Macaroni Salad, Potato Chips and unlimited beverages (all day)

Dinner (400 - 500) Grilled Boneless Chicken Breast, Italian Sausage (peppers & onions), Hot Dogs, Salt Potatoes, Tossed Salad, Fresh Roasted Corn on the cob, Watermelon Wedges and unlimited beverages (all day)

As discussed at the May meeting (needs to be voted on by membership at June's meeting) I would like to purchase each kid a $15 game card that is valid at any shop on the grounds (Candy Store, Arcade, Park Store, Food Stand).

I will be posting sign up sheets in the next few days at both Stations for members to sign themselves up along with your children. Please make sure to document the age of your children as the price is different for kids under 8 years.

If you are not 100 % positive you can attend DON'T SIGN UP, if you sign up and are part of the final numbers you WILL BE CHARGED as we won't be able to obtain a refund.

Emergency Preparedness

Pre-planning and being prepared in the event of an emergency is important for every citizen. A serious weather event, such as an ice storm could result in a power outage. Each household should be prepared to be self-sufficient for 72 hours.

Things to consider . . . a power outage means
• No cordless phones
• No ATM machines
• No gasoline pumps
• No water pumps (especially if using well water)
• No power for home health care equipment


Be Prepared, create a household emergency plan and a disaster supplies kit
Reach out to neighbors and friends before an emergency
Volunteer with the
Citizen Corps to help when the time comes

The People’s Burn Foundation
To Hell and Back
Training Programs

The To Hell and Back Training Programs of the People’s Burn Foundation were created to provide a training tool to effectively educate on the reality of burn injuries and how to prevent them. Developed through funding from the US Department of Homeland Security, these programs are distributed free of charge.

Fire Fighter Training Programs

The To Hell and Back Fire Fighter training programs target the types of burn injuries fire fighters sustain, how these burn injuries can be prevented, and how burn severity can be diminished by properly using personal protection equipment, breathing apparatus, and following appropriate OSHA and National Fire Protection Association standards.  The standard curriculum for training fire fighters does not include education on burns injuries. The THB training programs are used by fire departments across the United States and Canada and, in certain states, THB I and II are legislated as mandatory education for Firefighter I and II classes (required to become a career or volunteer firefighter) and Fire Officer I and II classes for career firefighters.

A new NIOSH publication No. 2009-100, Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program: Leading Recommendations for Preventing Fire Fighter Fatalities, 1998–2005, is now available. The document summarizes the most common recommendations from the 335 investigations conducted during the first 8 years of the NIOSH Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program. NIOSH believes the document will be a valuable resource for improving the safety and health of the nation’s fire fighters.
