This is the link you will keep coming back to as I will keep loading this section with the City of Prescott Public Records Requests ( PRRs ) and eventually break them into Part One, Two, etc. as they increase in volume size so the posts are kept reasonable in size.

 

7-31-20 5:22 PM I am just making a link to later come back then post 8 (Showing what I pulled) then this post 9 (Jeff Archer PRR).

 

Happy August! 8-1-20 10:08 AM

Now, let us see if they (COP) just "copied and pasted" the Troy emails (page 6) since he was named on so many of Troy's emails. For this PRR, I am going to run through it to see what we are looking at then see if any YHF stuff-

I will show the file folder and anything I feel is relevant I will post.

 

Since I was on last (10:08 AM) at 10:10 AM I got the blue screen of death as soon as I placed Jeff Archer's PRR thumb drive into my PC- it took this long (12:04 PM) to repair the PC back to a different time and date to get in to work on it, but now I am not liking this new thumb drive system.


I use to download right from their system. Now " all of a sudden" I have to pay for these thumb drives that I am wasting time on repairing my pc just to dig to what is on the thumb drive. Not good.


I may have to notify them what happened.

 

Also want to notice that Duane and Troy Steinbrink's PRR had less than 75 total but look "how many" Jeff Archer's came back ( to me that is odd):

 


























 

Wow, right? That is what we will be going over "live" right now...way more than Duane and Troy Steinbrink's PRR by far.

 

Let us begin with the first item and work our way down...okay. Quick "pause" (8-1-20 12:22 PM than back on)

So far all I am getting from Planning Meetings is that we may possibly now identify "Jeff Archer" to City of Prescott Fire Station 71. I am gonna do like Duane and Troy's and skip "snippets" unless I see a need to show it. I will put the next in order with title and content but no "snippets" uness I find some want or need to-

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 05/08/18, Time 0815-0915 Location: Station 71 In Attendance Chief Light, Jaimie Sventek, Chief Lucas, Chief Devendorf, Chief Moser, Captain Keith, Chief Luedeman, Jared Haxton Meeting called to order at 0815 Chiefs Report: City Business We are searching for a building official because Randy Pluimer has left the city. Willy Black from sanitation has also left the city, but it is unsure what the plan is for a timeline on replacement. The budget meeting went good. The only significant change is the way ARFF is funded. The airport enterprise fund will pick up 50 percent and the general fund will pick up 50 Percent. The budget was approved as written except for the purchase of new radios. They will be pushed back a year. New Business: 1) ITS/Communications Issues Alpine Update A meeting with Chief Light, Chief Luedeman, Jaime Sventek, Julie Wilson, and Nate Keegan was held on April 25th. IT confirmed that the Alpine rollout should be no more than 6 weeks from that date. Chief Moser is requesting the IFSTA testing software be followed up on. We need to buy the software for firefighter and a test bank for Engineer and Captain. IT to follow up. Chief Lucas stated the heart saver tones are installed in all stations. He asked IT if it is possible to have them installed in the BC office. IT to follow up. Captain Keith Said there is a radio in the loft upstairs at station 74 that is always on. There is currently a make shift mute on the radio. IT will look into it and come up with a plan to fix it. Text paging and Active 911 are still giving limited information and sending multiple alerts to calls spread out over a long period of time. Chief Luedeman said that the paging information is being worked on. **Update after the meeting- multiple active alerts for the same call are a result of having ALWAYS checked in your settings under page groups.2) PRCC Updates Chief Moser said that engine companies will be rotating through dispatch in 3 hour blocks starting the end of May. This is being set up to give the engine companies a glimpse into the workings of dispatch. There were questions whether reporting CAD data is a violation of HIPPA. Chief Moser reported that there are no issues with sharing CAD data as far as HIPPA is concerned. 3) Building Safety Updates (Devendorf) Bringing a new building official in the next month to replace Randy Pluimer. Tom Guice is leaving in 6 months Fire inspections are lacking due to a lack of qualified inspectors. We are hoping that the new building inspector has fire inspection experience. 4) Partners Academy Neighbors at CAFMA had a successful event that was well received by the fire member’s families. We may try to do something similar with PFD family members sometime in the future. It is hoped that with all the newer personnel that HR could come in and offer some assistance on benefits and retirement information. This program helps spouses understand better what we do. This may be pushed to 2019 due to the amount of activities already planned for this year. 5) GMIHC 5-Year Memorial Planning Needs IAP being done by Morgan June 25th at 1000 will be a media preview of the Tribute Center. Devendorf to assist PIO June 28th at 1800 in the evening is a soft opening for the Tribute Center. This is for the family and fire affiliates only. June 29th is the Grand Opening of the Tribute Center at 1200 for the public. June 30th- Ceremony at the Pioneer Cemetery at 0900. At 1630 to 1700 there will be a remembrance down town on the court house. June 30th is a busy day with the parade, boot race, week 4 of citizen’s academy, and other events for the 4th weekend. More information will be forthcoming. 6) Haz Mat Meters on Engines er Recorder: Chief Luedeman Tom Guice is leaving in 6 months Fire inspections are lacking due to a lack of qualified inspectors. We are hoping that the new building inspector has fire inspection experience. 4) Partners Academy Neighbors at CAFMA had a successful event that was well received by the fire member’s families.

More information will be forthcoming. 6) Haz Mat Meters on Engines We will not be putting multi gas meters on all the engines. We will be putting CO detectors on all of the engines in the future. Chief Lucas is working on this to come up with a plan. 7) EMS Week EMS week is May 21-27. A proclamation was read at the 5-8-18 council meeting. E71 crew and Battalion 1 attended. Chief Devendorf will be handling PIO. 8) Update on City of Prescott Academy The academy runs every Thursday from June 7 through July 5. BC’s please make sure your crews are ready for your dates The City of Prescott Academy is coming up on July 26. Conrad Jackson and chief Light will be presenting. After the presentations we will have 4 stations set up in the parking lot for groups to go through. The stations will be Special Ops, Hazmat, Fire Engine tour, and a Truck Company tour. 9) Press Release Development – Regional Airport The airport has asked to handle all PIO releases for incidents on the airport. If we have an event at the airport, all PIO releases will go through them. 10) Kudos. Open Forum Chief Light Chief Light asked that an engine company and B1 attend the proclamation reading at the city council meeting today. Chief Devendorf The Fuels Crew is at full strength. Collin Phipps has been promoted to a full time fuels management technician. 3 part time employees have been hired. They are Tucker Thein, Chance Mills, and Micah Joannes. Please introduce yourselves if you see them. Chief Moser There will be 2 interns working with Chief Moser in the near future. July will be the firefighter academy. The captain’s test is in September. The TECC instructor class is around the corner, and Chief Moser would like the Battalion Chiefs to attend if possible. There will be training to the crews after that. Chief Lucas Chief Lucas reported that he and the crews had a good run up north of Payton. The Type 1 with Johnstone, Archer, McCarty, and Winter did some great structure protection. Chief Luedeman The cars are removed from the training center. Morgan is working on the bus. There is a new car sitting at the training center. This is for the citizen’s academy. DO NOT CUT THIS CAR UP. Jaimie Sventek There will be some chairs stacked in station 71 bays in the near future. Kevin KeithKevin reported that we are seeing an increase of calls for trench work in the area. By law any trench work needs a rescue plan. The contractor is supposed to give notification to PRCC. Any trench permit lists a rescue plan. Most of the permits list the fire department as the rescue plan. Kevin is trying to get some competent person training up here to give us a better understanding of the process. There is diving going on at the Watson Lake Dam. There is no dive team locally. YCSO only has a recovery team. Like trench rescue, the fire department may be labeled as a rescue plan. Kevin is looking into options. **Update after the meeting- E74 crew took the boat out to see what was going on. The crews working there have their own rescue team, EMS, and a hyperbaric chamber on site and another one at their room. E74 stated that it is a very professional operation. Follow- Up Items 1) Community Paramedicine. We are still pushing forward. We are trying to figure out funding options. West Yavapai Guidance is trying to start a community medicine program. Theirs will be dedicated to substance abuse only. June 12 there will be a presentation at the council study session. 2) Building Safety Inspectors/Permit Techs – Ride a longs Tabled 3) Turnout Helmet Safety Haskell has reached out to the supplier. Should have next week 4) Citizen’s Fire Academy Discussed earlier 5) Garbage In/Garbage Out RMS Needs We have about a week for BC’s to ensure all reports are entered correctly. All reports need to be complete and accurate. FOLLOW UPS FOR NEXT MEETING Partner’s academy (Light) Active 911 and Text alerts (Luedeman) Trench and dive rescue procedures (Keith) Meeting adjourned at 0945. Facilitator: Chief Moser Recorder: Chief Luedeman.

Navigate the story the way they want, right-


I revisit my history in truth- do you?


If you "control" the History and narrative - you "control" the future, eh?


The Dude Fire and other Fire Fatalities prove that.

 

Just to show how my PRRs seem to always have this 0012 times 2 folders then you won't see 009, etc- why do they always have duplicates- it does mess it up when asking for the attachments if they are missing. ???

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 10-13-2015, Time 0815-0935 Location: Station 71 In Attendance: Chief Light, Chief Essex, Chief Devendorf, Chief Kriwer, Chief Lucas, Chief Moser, Jaimie Sventek, Captain Keith, Captain Wallace, and Captain Bauman. Recorder: Chief Light Chiefs Report: City Business: Most of the activity at city hall has revolved around the on-going budget discussion with Mayor and Council. Public Safety cuts seem to be under challenge from at least three council members, but there are some fiscal realities that could make some sort of cuts inevitable. New Business: 1) Upcoming Fundraisers A number of community fundraisers are in the works. These include, but are not limited to: Cancer Awareness/Wear Pink; Guns vs Hoses softball game to benefit the Champions for Children Foundation, and the Annual Men Who Cook Dinner event to benefit the Prescott Area Shelter Services (PASS). The association is seeking your support for the softball event and feel free to ask Chief Light about the other two events that he’s involved with. 2) Hazardous Materials Standard Operating Guideline Captain Wallace had sent out for review the recently re-worked SOG governing HM response. All senior staff was afforded the opportunity to provide comments and it was approved for publication and placement into the policy and procedure manual. All personnel are encouraged to review and comply. 3) Brown outs/Move-ups Extensive discussion surrounded the eventual potential for further browning out of stations should our personnel numbers be reduced. The approach for conducting such brownouts is still in the discussion phase, however if our numbers are reduced in any way it is highly likely they will occur. The BC’s will be taking this discussion to our line personnel. Frankly, there is no “good way” to accomplish service reductions when you don’t have the human resources to deliver a determined level of service. More on this may evolve after the next meeting with Mayor and Council on October 22nd. A meeting with BC Moser and Chief Light with our partner agencies of Central AZ Fire and Medical (authority of CYFD/CVFD) on October 28th. 4) Kudos. A vast array of Kudo’s have been received and were reviewed at the meeting. Those have since been distributed via email by Jaimie. Open Forum Public Safety Radio Spots: We are looking for some line folks to help out and record some upcoming PSA’s for broadcast on local media stations. These will be focused on seasonal community risk reduction campaigns. The idea is to allow the community the chance to hear a “different” voice aside from the “Chief’s”. Physicals: Chief Essex has been offering his due diligence to ensure our members receive comprehensive physicals to include the appropriate cancer screenings. He’s got a vendor determined and has worked to get the price down to one that is both affordable while ensuring all our benchmark needs are addressed. Those should be occurring very soon. Training: Many, many, many folks are not acquiring the necessary 20 hours per month of suppression training. This will be a focus to ensure compliance in the coming months so please offer some degree of interest in staying on top of this need. ARFF: A standardized effort for ensuring all engineers are qualified to operate in the ARFF environment is ongoing. This effort was codified last year and we are getting close to where we need to be, however there are still a few stragglers that need to complete some required training. This information is to be communicated to the BC’s and in turn they will work to gain compliance. EMS Refusals: ALL PATIENT ENCOUNTERS REQUIRE THE APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK COMPLETED. Enough said! Prophylaxis Needs: A brief discussion took place about the need for new hire and on-going prophylaxis testing for our current and new employees. Specifically we may have developed a gap in provision of TB and Hep B needs. The CDC is our source for being in compliance or not. This effort will be addressed in anticipation of ensuring we are in compliance with national standards. Meeting adjourned at 0935.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING

Date 01/18/17, Time 0815-0950

Location: Station 71

Present: Chief Light, DC Devendorf, BC’s Morgan, Lucas, Luedeman, Councilwoman Orr, Leila Ranzi, Jaimie

Sventek, Dan Bauman, Nate Seets, Jamie Wallace, Conrad Jackson, Kevin Perlak, Jared Haxton, and

others.

Recorder: Dennis Light

Chiefs Report: Chief Light reported that we will be commencing with the budgetary process. The line for this year,

as in most, is to remain conservative. That said we do look towards funding an EMS Coordinator and Public Educator

position.

New Business:

1. Yavapai Big Brothers/Big Sisters Presentation

As was alluded to in a department wide email, Leila Ranzi and Councilwomen Orr were in attendance to speak

about the possibility of creating some sort of “Bigs in Red” to complement the “Bigs in Blue” currently being

undertaken by Prescott PD. Two programs exist. First being the community program in which interested persons

would be paired with a Firefighter to serve as his/her “big”. The second, and likely more viable for us to be

engaged is the “school program”. In this instance, the interested person is again “paired” but the meetings take

place at one of our local schools and are conducted while on-duty. If interested please contact Chief Light direct. 2. 2-3 Year Vision of the Chief Chief Light shared that we have approached an interesting crossroads that is ripe to move our department forward without having to continually look over our shoulders for the knife wielding maniac. Couple of items in works that will make us more robust in our community: First is the development, with the assistance of Emergency Service Consulting, Inc. (ESCi), of a community risk assessment/standard of cover document. This effort will be commencing soon and is expected to be wrapped up by about July and presented to Council. Then comes some effort in regards to Community Based Strategic Management planning. This will engage a cross section of the community and internal and external stakeholders; if all goes well this will be wrapped up by September 30th. Following these two keystones to accreditation the pursuit to become an Accredited Agency will commence in earnest. If all goes according to plan, we would invite CFAI to do their site visit in about December 2019 and then appear before the commission in about March 2020. Chief has also received inquiries regarding his planned longevity with PFD. I will share that it is my likely intent to possibly enter into DROP in the summer of 2019 and then with God’s help, continue to work for the entire DROP period. That said, as a director there often times are other things to influence longevity so all this is pliable. 3. GMIHC 5-Year Memorial Planning Needs Presently the plan is similar to what occurred in the past to honor our fallen; however, it may be a little more robust than the past couple of years. It is expected that L-3066 will take the lead with families. This year may have heavier involvement down on the Courthouse square since it is the 5th anniversary of the loss. There is more to be worked out in this regard. 4. Assistance to FF Grant and Other Grant Opportunities Priorities A couple of elements are being worked via grants. Our current radio system is paramount in this regard. Other items include apparatus and training. All opportunities to seek grants will be pursued. 5. ITS/Communication Issues/Concerns Radio reprogram is complete and was down with few flaws. Station alerting system work is in progress. Questions concerning linking BC’s quarter in with lighting, etc. were addressed. Zoom video conferencing is now up and operational and can connect all our operating locations as well as Fire Administration when/if needed. We spoke on the fringes about the issue that still limits, for nearly a decade our ability to communicate based upon equipment placement at the Mingus Tank. Chief Light will once again approach CAFMA to see if they can help with the solution. 6. Community Paramedicine Back in 2014-2015, the department went to YRMC to discuss community paramedicine and how to roll it out. The idea was chopped by YRMC at that time. The topic has now again surfaced by YRMC as they are now being fined. Chief Light is working with CAFMA to move forward with concept which could come to fruition by early as next fiscal year. The concept could possibly assist the department in funding a full-time EMS Coordinator (non-sworn) position. The program will target high risk re-admission clients and reach out to them to follow-up on their hospital visit to hopefully reduce call volume, responses, and readmissions. 7. Kudos Thank you for Acker Night Attendance - Jinger Cutting Thank you and donation (EMS assistance) - Carol & Myers Hammond Thank you to Station 73 – Chloe Woodruff Thank you – Nicole DiLeo Thank you to Adam Morris Honor Guard participation – Jeremiah King, CAFMA Thank you for ride a long – Erin Raisley Thank you for delivering St. Luke’s Christmas meals – Muriel de Ganahl Thank you (EMS assistance) – Kathy Flynn Thank you – Albert & Hilde Padilla Thank you for emergency response presentation to Sunrise Lions Club – Mark Anderson Thank you to Kevin Keith for PAL tour of CARTA – Chief Freitag, CAFMA Open Forum Lt. Perlak • Some on-going issues with TriTech roll out and implementation. New target date is February 12, 2018. • PRCC is in the process of hiring two additional dispatchers. • There was an emergency call for service recently where an elderly lady ran her car into a doctor’s office on 12th Place. PRCC dispatchers followed policy and did not respond Fire as there was no indication of health issues, injury, or significant damage to the building. However, it was later discovered by the tow truck driver that there was structure damage. Chief Light would like to make it standard practice to send a unit to calls such as this to place eyes on the situation and to make an assessment of the structure. Chief Morgan • Recently attended a courthouse security meeting and believes that it would be a good idea for the engine companies to do tours of the facility for familiarization. Chief Luedeman • The ARFF engineer training is in progress. • Recently attended a meeting in regards to the Wings Out West event. Chief Devendorf • The purchase of the BC rig is moving forward. There is a cost savings to the department since IT will be purchasing/supplying all of the IT needs for the vehicle. • The department is going to attempt to purchase a new engine rather than moving forward with a refurbishment. The life expectancy of a refurbished engine is only 10 additional years with only a 30% cost savings. • The department may keep E722.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Minutes Date 12/05/17, Time 0820-0915 Location: Station 71 Present: Chief Light, Cory Moser, Don Devendorf, Dan Morgan, Scott Luedeman, Jaimie Sventek Recorder: Jaimie Sventek Chiefs Report: What a difference a day makes at City Hall with the new elected body. City Hall is friendly again. Mayor Mengarelli has requested to meet with the Police Department and Fire Departments already. New Business: 1. ITS/Communications Issues Chief Light has shared the radio issues with Nate Keegan. Training for the CAD mobile is tentatively scheduled for January 2, 3, 8, 2018. There will be a PowerPoint presentation sent to all the stations in the Tri-City area in mid December. The Captain will be responsible for self-guiding through the presentation before the classes. There will be two teleconference sessions from CAFMA (site to be determined), one in the morning and one in the afternoon with the zoom conference software. There should be a recording of the conference so those that miss it can view it at a later date. Beyea, Pluimer, and Reese will be the shift representatives for the CAD mobile. A representative from the TriTech implementation team will be available to speak at the upcoming crew meetings. 2. Department Photo Possibility Chief Light would like to assemble all personnel together for a professional department photo to memorialize the department. He would like to do this in April or May of next year around shift change and possibly provide breakfast. Chief Light is seeking ideas. 3. RED (Remember Everyone Deployed) Friday’s Consideration – Support US Military Chief Light is seeking ideas and thoughts pertaining to supporting the US military. Either all participate and support or the department forgoes the idea. Some thoughts were to purchase hats. If the idea or suggestion to support the cause moves forward, the added costs must be programmed for. Chief Light is not sold one way or another, but would like feedback on the proposal. 4. Apparatus Cell Phone Needs Since the apparatus cell phones seem to be no longer utilized, the decision to retrieve the phones and turn them in and off has been made. Chief Morgan will gather them all and return to the Administration office. 5. Kudos Albert & Hilde Padilla – Station 75 A Shift Kevin Keith – Assisting with PAL at CARTA Sunrise Lions Club – Thank you letter Follow-Up Items 1. Leave Policy The Leave Policy is the standard. There was a suggestion made to create a separate training calendar for PFD only with the ED leave noted next to the items. If an employee is on industrial leave, it counts as a person being off however those reserved PTO slots in place before the industrial notification shall be honored. Chief Light has no problem blocking out leave for an injury that occurs off duty. 2. Storage within the department The department will obtain pricing for storage cabinets at station 71 in the BC’s office which will make the storage environmentally sound and the inventorying of items easier. 3. Structure for light duty personnel and who they report to There is no straight answer. If the employee has a program area then they can be self-directed if they report to the BC each morning first. Each light duty is a case by case basis in who and where they must report to. Open Forum Chief Luedeman · There has been discussion about adding the CO 4 in 1 meters to all engines. The Battalion Chiefs are to come to a solution as to whether or not the meters will be added or not. Chief Moser has concerns about them breaking. Chief Devendorf has a concern about the cost. Chief Light is concerned about the training issue. Chief Moser · A lot of trainings and meetings have been scheduled. TEEC training will be a minimum of two days of training. · Refresher courses, quarterly training and CAD mobile training are scheduled for January, February, and March. · Grant requests need to be sent to Karen. Chief Moser has spent a lot of time cleaning up grant items. There must be a bomb proof reason for why we purchase through a sole source vendor for items and equipment needed. · The department will be purchasing 5 ballistic helmets instead of 3 for the active shooter program. Chief Morgan · Is there an AAR for Public Safety regarding the Christmas Parade? The answer is yes. Chief Luedeman spoke to Casey Cook and suggest and IP for the event next year as the department was blindsided by the helicopter landing at the Mile High Middle School field with a fuel tank nearby. The helicopter was not grounded when fueling. It was suggested that the hard barricades be left in the same place for the parade and the lighting. All in all, the events went well. Ms. Sventek · The budget training seemed to go well. If anyone is interested in learning more or missed the training, please see Jaimie for additional training opportunities. Meeting adjourned at 9:15AM

Either all participate and support or the department forgoes the idea. Some thoughts were to purchase hats. If the idea or suggestion to support the cause moves forward, the added costs must be programmed for. Chief Light is not sold one way or another, but would like feedback on the proposal. 4. Apparatus Cell Phone Needs Since the apparatus cell phones seem to be no longer utilized, the decision to retrieve the phones and turn them in and off has been made. Chief Morgan will gather them all and return to the Administration office. 5. Kudos Albert & Hilde Padilla – Station 75 A Shift Kevin Keith – Assisting with PAL at CARTA Sunrise Lions Club – Thank you letter Follow-Up Items 1. Leave Policy The Leave Policy is the standard. There was a suggestion made to create a separate training calendar for PFD only with the ED leave noted next to the items. If an employee is on industrial leave, it counts as a person being off however those reserved PTO slots in place before the industrial notification shall be honored. Chief Light has no problem blocking out leave for an injury that occurs off duty. 2. Storage within the department The department will obtain pricing for storage cabinets at station 71 in the BC’s office which will make the storage environmentally sound and the inventorying of items easier. 3. Structure for light duty personnel and who they report to There is no straight answer. If the employee has a program area then they can be self-directed if they report to the BC each morning first. Each light duty is a case by case basis in who and where they must report to. Open Forum Chief Luedeman · There has been discussion about adding the CO 4 in 1 meters to all engines. The Battalion Chiefs are to come to a solution as to whether or not the meters will be added or not. Chief Moser has concerns about them breaking. Chief Devendorf has a concern about the cost. Chief Light is concerned about the training issue. Chief Moser · A lot of trainings and meetings have been scheduled. TEEC training will be a minimum of two days of training. · Refresher courses, quarterly training and CAD mobile training are scheduled for January, February, and March. · Grant requests need to be sent to Karen. Chief Moser has spent a lot of time cleaning up grant items. There must be a bomb proof reason for why we purchase through a sole source vendor for items and equipment needed. · The department will be purchasing 5 ballistic helmets instead of 3 for the active shooter program. Chief Morgan · Is there an AAR for Public Safety regarding the Christmas Parade? The answer is yes. Chief Luedeman spoke to Casey Cook and suggest and IP for the event next year as the department was blindsided by the helicopter landing at the Mile High Middle School field with a fuel tank nearby. The helicopter was not grounded when fueling. It was suggested that the hard barricades be left in the same place for the parade and the lighting. All in all, the events went well. Ms. Sventek · The budget training seemed to go well. If anyone is interested in learning more or missed the training, please see Jaimie for additional training opportunities. Meeting adjourned at 9:15AM

 

Storm /Thunder rolling in- logging off for today - 8/1/20 6:13 PM

Happy Birthday Jimmy Ray (RiP)

We miss you!

 

I watched a movie (snacked on pistachio nuts) after the storm pummeled through with a lot of rain, hail, lightning and thunder. I really wish I was better this morning. Starting today 8-2-20 8:20 AM with some breathe easy tea and save by the baby treatment. "Since 1874 Lee's Save the Baby has been relieving coughs in children and adults so they can sleep through the night or make it through the day without hacking. Just rub this old-time salve onto your chest and it reduces the impulse to cough, which helps you sleep." It does not heal just helps reduce those moments. My chest feels like concrete is sitting on it.


Currently, I continue to cough have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing or I try to do a full breath and not yet able to do that, lethargic and achy, joint stiffness, taste buds are off, vomit because of the nausea I have had ever since I ate that pie awhile back- daily. No fever / no runny nose/ no congestion in sinus but there is in bilateral ear making hearing harder and bridge of my eyes (swelling), throat sore from all the hacking and throwing up.


I would not want to be tested tied to an agencies but if they offered on an individual education and knowledge than I would because I am not placing myself out public at all but want to know to rule it out or not. But I am not a person who wants to be part of this Plannedemic so some Government can make funds based on the numbers.


My mother's town's farmer's market owner tested negative for the COVID 19 and currently soon after being tested he is in ICU with COVID 19 and now his daughter has it. I am not saying it is not real, I am just saying it was not something that just appeared out of the blue skies and at all costs I have not tied to the Government stuff. If you are ill, quarantine. I was suppose to be home already but since I was ill I have stayed on same property and refrained from fun shopping moments in the Dragon's Belly ( heat of Phoenix and surrounding areas right now). If my co-author(s) go to see family, I alert his family because I know he won't. I have no clue what it is but I do not wish it on anyone. My bones even feel it and my eyes...I am glad on my wedge pillow at an angle I am able to finally sleep because at the start of this I was not able to sleep. Sleep helps my chest rest from the hacking. Again, I will see a doctor before I head back home to make sure I know what it is but meanwhile drinking plenty of Ph10 and cucumber and celery water. I would never want another person to feel this way. In the past day it actually hurts to talk. So if you do not need to talk with me, refrain from calling me. I do have the T-zone swelling with fluid between the bridge of my eyes. So it could be just one of those phases I have had since the MRSA times on and off back in 2006-2009 because it happens too.


On Monday 7-27-20 7:31 PM someone close to the Willis and Steinbrink families cautioned the blog participants that 'having a CCW is a must now. People will stop at nothing. Please be careful amigo.' and we stated back "God is in control and has the perfect plan." and the person replied 'I agree, [H]e also wants you to have super SA now, that's all I meant.'


Let me get the day started right with ODB then on to this post...

from ODB:

Reflect & Pray

What risks or rewards are associated with helping a wanderer find his or her way back to where they belong? When did God use someone to bring you back from a not-so-good place?

 

When I see the word "wanderer" - I cannot help to bring myself back watching my grandpa following doctors' orders as he had piles of different meds before him and I thought no way am I going to ever be a part of the pharmaceutical lifestyle. Then to watch him slowly fade into this "wanderer" state while his wife Miss Nettie too followed into this dark dementia which has so many levels of changes in behaviors as they become a person who no longer knows you or the memories. I remember him talking about 'ball' before he died when he was a boy. He remembered it with complete details. I was always 'Eydie' - that was my Aunt or the blond girl. You cannot get angry or upset ( I mean you can ) but not worth the energy of such because with dementia you cannot take it personal. Look at the "emotion" not the behavior. If you try reason, you will be left with frustrations. Anyways, when I saw the word "wanderer" in the Reflect and Pray, I wandered to my Grandpa and Miss Nettie then thought about this blog...it is a lot to take in...it is...Make the effort to read it, try to understand I am doing my best to place out what I saw June 30, 2013 and gathered since, it will offend some but I have to share my experiences without filters and in raw real form.

The City of Prescott redacts and closes PRRs with PFD Stations full names but they will offer the above in email threads that have names. ??? Now if Willis and Steinbrink's friend's account is firm than I am puzzled why Harwood began this journey of the podcast. Puzzled!!! Why did the podcast on YHF end? You all could keep rolling more data out as I have proven in my posts there was more data tied to your names. Keep talking Doug Harwood.


Keep talking! If I was the City of Prescott, I would find your involvement with this podcast to be kind of a conflict of interest and or a diversion. What do you think, Harwood?


Harwood is blessed I am not in charge of his career. I would have already made him do a Declaration for the City of Prescott all he knows on the YHF and thereafter for his permanent COP file and that he must refrain from publicly talking outside that declaration in his file, a lie detector test, and turn over all technology tied to his name that he ever used when on G-time that June 30, 2013 and I would make sure I would look his stuff over and make sure to "clear" that area. I am not buying at this point he is solely a "family advocate" until I see him cleared on above areas I just mentioned. No way. Time will tell. After considering what we been posting I would think you Harwood would want to continue on that podcast speaking more. Why did it just stop?


(8/3/20 3:33 PM- adding why I am saying above ... if you know the "behind the scenes" it just does not add up - call me and I am willing to share just not here because I do have one entity with this topic a PRR/FOIA.)

 

11:37 AM: https://www.investigativemedia.com/please-begin-yarnell-hill-fire-chapter-xxxi-here/#comment-484271:

 

It appears I know why I am ill- stuff like this (above) out there.


- Are you kidding me?


At least the man Todd Conklin who did Brad's interview claims he has known the YHF "Alleged" Lead Investigator, Brad Mayhew, a billion years. That should show the exaggerations to start with- Then he adds they known each other as young children...tiny babies...tiny little human factor babies...Gag me, please. What is our world coming to???


Now I can see why I am ill.

That is a current leader for Human Factors to our world?

Please help us.

June 30th Anniversary – Event(s) There will be a sign of some sort placed on the Courthouse Square designating the site of the future memorial. There will not be much of a memorial at the Pioneer Cemetery this year as the event has been scaled back. 2. Budget The first budget workshop will be held in the Founder’s room at the Prescott Library at 9AM on May 12th. The department may be able to restore 3 positions if the SAFER grant is successful at the grant review. The department will be hiring 3 fire fighters regardless of the SAFER grant outcome. The purchase of the new Battalion Chief truck has been tabled for now. The implementation of the compensation / Market Pay Plan will most likely occur in the new fiscal year. Some Fire Department employees are likely to see $10k - $20k in raises, which may be all in one year. Chief Light should have a good sense of this after the budget workshop. The Mayor does not feel the need for a second ladder truck. However, the department receives points from ISO for reserves. 3. Badge Pinning / Promotional Ceremony The ceremony will take place Thursday, May 12th at 1430 in the apparatus bay of station 71. The Mayor and Mayor Pro-Tem have requested to speak.

The employees have been entered into the computer software program. Chief Moser hopes to have the software setup completed in the month of July. Chief Moser stated that he has received secondhand information that if the hospital wants to access Prescott Fire’s EPCR data through the AZ DHS software, they must pay a onetime $13k fee and then there will be a yearly fee of approximately $4k. CAFMA has been the first entity to run into this issue. • There will be no room for error in handling and dispensing the narcotics.

Chief Devendorf • Thanked the BC’s for getting the brownout information to the dispatch center. • The fireworks legislation failed; there will be no flying fireworks. • Chief Devendorf will be covering the FireOps 101 scheduled for May 20th – 21st Chief Essex • TB testing is underway. If there is no bump when the test is administered, the test is not a good test, is not valid, and it must be redone. There is a blood test available for confirmation if needed since some people will always test positive. Chief Light would like the department to work with the County Health Department to conduct future TB testing in-house. • The new air packs should be delivered today. There are new masks that have a thermal imaging camera in them and he will see them at a meeting tomorrow. Mr. Malm is conducting the fit testing. There will be training from MES for the new SCBA’s.

BC is to free someone on duty to assist. Follow- Up Items Meeting adjourned at 9:00 AM

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Minutes Date 04/16/15, Time 0815-0915 Location: Station 71 In Attendance: Chief Light, Cory Moser, Don Devendorf, Ralph Lucas, Eric Kriwer, Jaimie Sventek, Dave Essex Chiefs Report: Chief Light has been working through budget process with COP administration. He will be attending the Arizona Fire Service Institute meeting Monday, April 20, 2015 in Phoenix. COP looking at proposing tax initiatives for the upcoming election in August. Competition for tax revenue between Streets, Open Space, and Public Safety. With the Public Safety pension liability being what it is, some form of reform needs to take place. COP considering a 0.5% to 0.75% Public Safety tax. More discussion by Council and city administration to take place. New Business: 1) Wildland Division Ancillary Duties Fuels reduction still operating as business as usual; finishing current chipping responsibilities. Some of Chief Willis’ duties are being distributed amongst staff officers; covering most immediate needs for now. Tony Sciacca will be monitoring Red card certs and qualifications and NIMS compliance of certifications. Chief Lucas will be assuming many of the Wildland operational duties. Much discussion of the Pack Test. No firm decision has been made as of yet. More discussion with Tony, Chief Light, Chief Lucas and Chief Essex to come. 2) Pending Org Changes Upon Appropriation/Budget Approval Upon approval of FY2016 budget, Chief Kriwer will return as Fire Marshal. Chief Devendorf will be reassigned to begin work on PFD Accreditation, Emergency Plan, and Standards of Cover Document. An interim BC will be assigned to A shift. This position will be rotated amongst those acting BCs’ that are qualified for promotion. More discussion to take place to work out details. City Administration has asked Chief Light to look at a 10% cut in our budget and to see where those funds would have to come from. We are still lean on areas to cut; reduction of service models are being considered. 3) Stork Pins Policy on Stork Pins still to be finalized. Thoughts are that pins should be given out only to employees that actually deliver a newborn infant. 4) Kudos Thank you letters for PFD service were sent from the following: Judy Scheer- 71 A shift; Seets, Archer & Malm Phillip McComas- 71 C shift; McElwee, Jackson, & Carmen Janice Palmer- 74 B shift; Roberts, Cooley. & Mills Jake Seibert- BC C shift; Morgan Jim Walter- 71 C shift; No names mentioned Darrell Willis- All Personnel Open Forum Chief Lucas has installed deep well chargers in the engines and truck companies.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 11/14/17, Time 0815-0915 Location: Station 71 Members Present: Jaimie Sventek, Dennis Light, Dan Morgan, Don Devendorf, Scott Luedeman, Cory Moser, and Ralph Lucas. Recorder: Ralph Lucas Chiefs Report: City Business: Fire Chief Light reported that there has not been a lot to report from City Hall other than things have been pretty quiet and good. Chief Light responded that he made contact with all the Mayoral and Council candidates on the night of the elections. The new Mayor and Council will be sworn in on the 28th of November. New Business: 1) ITS/Communications Issues: Not discussed. IT was not able to attend. 2) Program Oversight Alignments: A discussion was brought forth in regards to making sure program managers are aligned with appropriate BC oversight, based on shift assignments as a result of the bid process. Chief Moser will retain the EMS oversight. Chief Lucas will oversee the two program managers for TRT and Haz Mat. Chief Luedeman will oversee the program manager for ARFF. 3) Documentation of Workplace Issues Involving Violence by Citizens/Customers: Chief Light commented that any indication of threatening or harassing behavior against any City employee needs to be documented and include notification of the Police Department. 4) 2017/2018 Mayor and Council Proposed Orientation: Chief Light stated that new and remaining council members will get an updated briefing via a PowerPoint presentation that will consist of three slides. One slide will include the organizational chart of the Fire Department, one will include a budget overview of the Fire Department, and the last will include the needs of the Fire Department. Chief Light has prepared an agenda for any council members, new or remaining, that would like to go through an orientation to our operations. These members will do sight visits to stations and perhaps observe some demonstrations of what we do. This should take place in the next few months and the Battalion Chiefs will be the curators. 5) Kudos: Chief Light conveyed the importance of all of the correspondence we receive from the public. He stated that he receives a significant amount more of all the good we do out there. He also stated that it is important to know that he sends them to the City Manager for potential dissemination to Mayor and City Council. There were a number of ‘Kudo’s’ read to the staff and Jaimie Sventek will scan and send out to personnel. Follow- Up Items -Leave policy. -Storage within the department. -Structure for light duty personnel and who they report to. 1 Open Forum Chief Lucas: Reported that a wildland cache has been established in the back building of Station 71. With the move of Station 7 out to the training center, we were able to organize and cache a good amount of items for future use, much of which is PPE, while at the same time disposing of items that were outdated and no longer purposeful. Chief Lucas asked about the fire investigators that have been trained in the building department. All of those personnel have been trained at commensurate levels, but are not to be in an IDLH environment, which means that air monitoring and a determination as to safe entry will need to be made by the scene commander prior to their entry. Chief Devendorf is the only current fire investigator that can enter into an IDLH environment. Jaimie Sventek: Ms. Sventek reported that she has completed one shift worth of Budget training and has two more shifts to go in upcoming weeks. Chief Morgan: Chief Morgan brought forth a discussion regarding preparedness at large City events in regards to overall public safety. The Fire Department and Police Department are working towards added safety measures with regards to overall safety at events with large crowds in our communities. More to come on this topic. Chief Devendorf: Chief Devendorf reported that the fuels program is going really well. We were recently able to inherit a grant that Groom Creek Fire District was unable to fulfill which includes work on the Joint Chief’s project, which in essence is an effort to create a fuel break within the entire perimeter of the Prescott basin. They are also working on thinning of trails that benefit the system and also create a fuel break. They are currently doing only chipping one day a week. Chief Devendorf stated that if you have not seen the new facility out at the training center that it is worth a visit out there. It turned out really nice. Chief Devendorf also reported that our Auxiliary Fire Corp personnel are doing great. Amongst other duties, they have gone ‘mobile’ with Ipads and knocking out inspections under a new program. Chief Devendorf stated that for now Engine Company Inspections are on hold as we integrate a couple of software programs with the Building Department. We are looking at engine companies doing more of a building pre-plan site visit versus an inspection in the future. Chief Luedeman: Chief Luedeman brought up a couple of topics to be discussed in upcoming staff meetings to include: the lack of storage for our program managers and a more structured way for light duty personnel to know who to report to based on department needs. Chief Luedeman brought forward a form for program managers that captures all of the information related to their program, along with needs and future objectives. Pending some alterations, Chief Luedeman will be getting those out to our program managers in an effort to better support their needs. 2 Chief Moser: Chief Moser recently met with Sergeant Casey Cook regarding active shooter protocol. We are currently in the process of putting together the training with the Police Department and our lead agents within the department, Matt Reese and Lance Mills, at which point personnel will learn how to operate on an active shooter incident. This training will take place within the next couple of months. Chief Moser also reported that the three ballistic vests and helmets will be ordered in upcoming weeks and are what the Prescott Police Department utilizes. Chief Moser gave a short briefing on the Tri-Tech CAD program that is in full swing. Department representatives are in work sessions all week as the process moves forward. Meeting Adjourned at 09:20

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 1/10/17, Time 0815-0930 Location: Station 71 Chiefs Report: City Business Chief provided update on overarching budgetary strategy being undertaken as we prepared our FY2018 numbers. Of specific interest is need to continue to reinstitute full staffing and eliminate brown outs of station #73 and concurrently work towards funding the compensation efforts that were part of the current years appropriation. Anything else is gravy. New Business: 1. ITS/Communications Issues In the event there is a need for work to be performed by ITS technical staff the best route to ensure accountability is via the submission of a work order to the ITS Help Desk. Efforts are underway to move forward the wifi needs at stations aside from FS#71. We are working to overcome some of the scheduling challenges that have developed and it is hoped this will be wrapped up very soon. TeleStaff is to be upgraded very soon. Efforts have already been undertaken to minimize the number of codes employed and many have been de-activated. Once the upgrade to TeleStaff takes place, added training will be provided to Chief’s/Acting BC’s and select Captains. 2. Seamless Documents An effort is underway citywide to work toward electronic availability of all forms we currently use. PD/HR/Legal is currently working on theirs and once capacity becomes available, we will work on ours. Teresa Morris with input from Jaimie and other DC’s/BC’s will work on delivering us an end product. 3. Kudos A number of positive notes of thanks were received recently and read aloud at the meeting. Roundtable Cory mentioned the great job the trainers have done in regards to rolling out the ePCR tablet use. In addition, there will be a soon to be realized need to enhance some of our EMS training in the coming months to include Humorous IO, CPAP, and other needs. Dave Essex confirmed that our seven new recruits would begin their orientation phase on Monday, February 6th. This year’s orientation will be expanded on a couple of fronts to ensure they are fully prepared to ride. We will also be somewhat “fast-tracking” the assignment of Anthony Benitez given his past history. Budget is soon to be in full swing. Program managers are reminded to get their needs identified early and submitted to allow Jaimie ample time for submission. The budget calendar should be available by the last week of January.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 03/10/15, Time 0815-0940 Location: Station 71 Present: Dennis Light, Eric Kriwer, Ralph Lucas, Cory Moser, Dave Essex, Jaimie Sventek, Jeff Moffitt, Jeff Archer, Darrell Willis, Don Devendorf, Bret Lucas Recorder: Kriwer Chiefs Report: Met with Mick Fenech and is going to turn major portion of department facilities needs to City Facilities Department. The Haz-Mat vehicle will be going to Council on March 24. Budget capital items are due this week. We are working on a new BC rig spec and will keep the current BC rig as a solid back-up. The budget process is in its normal cycle. The class/comp study has been moved to April 14 or 28 from the original March 24 date. There appears to be a budget shortfall between $750,000 to $1.5 million. It appears to be a moving target. We are looking at public/private partnerships in the fuels management process. Chief will have a meeting with Council to discuss. New Business: 1. Policy Discussion Per Chief Light our policy manual needs to be updated. There are times that policy is not being followed. Policies need to follow our business model and be relevant to our mission. The policy manual should be reviewed every two years. It will be important that all personnel are trained on the policy manual. Chief Lucas is working on the policy manual updating. 2. Investigation Utilization Chief Devendorf states that anytime an investigator is needed the CR Division will send someone out. The obvious call outs should include: large dollar loss, loss of life, obvious suspicious in nature, etc. Chief Devendorf will send out criteria that outlines investigator call outs. CR is also working on a fire loss estimator calculation that can be used in the organization. Please try and triage call outs, if needed feel free to call the on duty investigator by phone and a call out if needed will always be responded too. 3. PRCC QA/QI Chief Devendorf discussed a list of problems at PRCC. We have seen an increase of problems with the Dispatch Center. Chief Willis mentioned that PRCC is in transition with a lot of new employees and training of new personnel. Per Chief Light exceptions to normal service delivery should be sent to the duty BC and will be forwarded to the PRCC division chief rep for follow up. Group discussion on issues was discussed by the floor on various incidents. Chief Light mentioned that we must be factual and show some patience as they are in transition. There are concerns amongst all PRCC partners and we will use the chain of command to work through the issues. 4. Swat Medic Plan Please provide Chief Devendorf a list of four names that have interest in becoming a SWAT medic. Chief Light explained the terminology we should use would include Tactical EMS. We will have to institute a program that is more than one deep, that builds capacity equal to economic scale. The vision would include one or two deep per shift and can be managed at the company officer level. The program also needs to be driven by our law enforcement partners. Chief Devendorf discussed the program evolution. 2 5. PIO Coverage We need to check the status of our current PIO program. There is an open PIO spot on A-shift.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 7/15/14, Time 0821-0907 Location: Station 71 Present: Dennis Light, Tony Sciacca, Darrell Willis, Marsha Collier, Ted Ralston, Cory Moser, Dave Essex, Eric Kriwer, Don Devendorf, Scott Luedeman, Jeff Archer Recorder: Jaimie Sventek Chiefs Report: Chief Light stated that the Fire Code adoption is on the horizon and the department will need to strategize. The Building Department is looking at moving the codes forward during the second week in August. The Yavapai County Emergency Management and EMS Base Hospital Agreements will go before council in August. Chief Light will speak to the Streets Department regarding the delivery and payment of the masticator since it has been divided between Fiscal Years. New Business: 1. Annual Evaluations There are several employee evaluations overdue, primarily for operations. Chief Light would like to get caught up on them within the next 6 weeks; keeping as close to up-to-date with them as possible. The evaluations are how the employee receives feedback and eventually there will be a financial piece attached. 2. Radio Call Signs The call signs have been cleared with dispatch. Chief Willis stated that the Fuels Crew should be referred to as Crew 7. 3. Frequent Flyers There is a citizen that uses a wheel chair as a means of transportation and frequently calls for emergency services to be transported, expecting that their personal possessions will be transported as well. Chief Kriwer spoke to Legal and there is no liability on the City’s part for leaving a person’s personal possessions on scene. The safety of PFD’s personnel is first and foremost. The Captains are to use their best judgment. Engage Prevention staff if needed. The department will still provide the service if possible. Make the referrals for Adult Protective Services (APS) for people that need assistance and get law enforcement involved as well. Check the resources list. Chief Light will contact APS. 4. Kudos The department received a letter from a citizen indicating that there is still community interest in a new Hotshot crew. Open Forum Chief Light Chief Light received a letter indicating that the landowner of where the Iron Fire occurred is filing a lawsuit against Fann Contracting for $41,000.00 in reimbursement. The department will have a staff meeting every 2 weeks through Labor Day in September. Then one staff meeting a month will be held until December. The facilitator and recorder responsibilities will rotate keeping staff on agenda and task, and forcing lateral communication with fewer meetings. Chief Light has provided the Honor Guard direction on the attendance of the Colorado Springs, CO, September 17-21 and Emmitsburg, MD, October 9-12, memorial attendance. It is not fiscally responsible to send all the liaisons to the memorials. Informed decisions will need to be made, and there should be representation; however, false expectations cannot be set. There should be chief representation at each memorial. Marsha Collier All the reports are now complete for FY14. Marsha will send the incomplete reports list each Thursday to the Captains. Chief Kriwer Chief Kriwer has been working with Lori Burkeen in Legal to limit the exposures paperwork. There is currently a box to check in ADSi under the CAD Assigned Apparatus screen. Mike Fusco, former Fire Chief of the City of Peoria, has been contracted to work under Lori in the Risk Management Division. Kerry Ramella has written a draft Peer Support Manual for the Peer Support Program. Funding is currently through the 100 Club. Equipment tags and stickers will be ordered soon. The freeze plugs on the new engines were drilled oval instead of round. The issue is being corrected. Personnel interested in attending State Fire School should submit their interest now. There are 4-5 people already on the list. Chief Moser The McCormick St. building was broken into around 7:30-8PM on July 14th. Transients entered the upstairs door on the alley side. The Police Department was asked to patrol the area. The door lock will need to be replaced. Firefighter Carmen has taken over the heart monitor program and Engineer Seets has taken over pump testing. A reminder email will be sent out regarding care homes. Meetings will be set up on how care homes should be operating. The EMS QA, QI information that Engineer Fifield has been working on is about done. The scores will be private. Chief Willis The Wildland Division would like to go before Council to get approval to apply for another 50%, 50% State Fire Assistance Fuels grant for a total of $300,000. The application is due August 15th. Chief Willis asked Chief Kriwer to check the sand and sand bag quantities at stations 51 and 71. Chief Devendorf There have been several structure fires lately. When the crews shut power off, please shut off the electrical main and not the breakers. Thank you for the support. Tony Sciacca – Arizona Wildfire and Incident Management Academy The Academy would like to continue to pass the Gila River grant through the City. The Arizona State Division of Forestry is considering an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) to funnel money through to the Academy for Tony to be a State Training Officer. Chief Light will need to work with the City’s Legal Department and the State to work out the details of the IGA. Crossfit Prescott will host a fundraiser on August 30th with the funds raised going to the Academy for educational scholarships. They estimate that there will be approximately 500 people attending, raising between $20,000-25,000. Chief Essex Karen Cannizzaro will have knee surgery on Thursday, July 17th and will be out until the end of July. Marsha will assist Dave while Karen is out. The physicals are being scheduled and personnel are being paid to go to them. Follow- Up Items Meeting adjourned at 9:07AM.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Date 1/13/15, Time 0815-0940 Location: Station 71 Present: Dennis Light, Eric Kriwer, Ralph Lucas, Cory Moser, Dave Essex, Ted Ralston, Dan Morgan, Jaimie Sventek, Jeff Moffitt, Jeff Archer, Matt Fifield, Conrad Jackson, Adam Julien, Dan Bauman Absent: Darrell Willis, Don Devendorf Recorder: Bret Lucas Special Presentation: Paula Tomitz - YCT Wellness Program: Ms. Tomitz is the coordinator for the YTC Wellness Program (YTCWellness.com). She coordinates several wellness classes that are free to members. You can e-mail her to sign up for the classes and she encourages everyone to like the program page on Facebook. She further discussed a “Fitbit” wellness challenge that is kicking off at the end of March for individuals and teams. Ms. Tomitz further stated that members receive a reduced rate for the facilities at Yavapai College including the pool. She discussed Wellness and kicked out facts including that, 80% of workers in the United States have at least one chronic problem and 55% have two or more chronic problems. Ms. Tomitz further stated the cost of obesity to the United States is 147 billion dollars yearly. Ms. Tomitz stated that her mission statement is “to empower each employee to take control of their own health and wellness by making informed decisions every day.” Chief Light stated that he has seen a “cultural change” in the fire service since he started to be healthier. Chiefs Report: Encouraged everyone to take a look at the budget presentation outline. Approximately 71% of the general fund is going to PSPRS and the council will be taking steps to ease the burden from taxpayers. A study will be undertaken on facilities and improvements. Our current deployment locations are good for service demand. The McCormick building will cost approximately $800,000.00 to make the building habitable and bring it to current codes. Chief Light doesn’t see this happening this year, but does like the concept of consolidating resources making it a “one stop shop” for fire department services. Chief Light spoke before a state legislative committee about group homes. Identified that the less than successful people in the program become a burden for EMS and only 6 out of 100 successfully complete the program. We as an organization need to frequent these facilities to insure life safety. Also before the legislature is legislation that agencies with automatic aid agreements can obtain a C.O.N. through D.H.S. Ambulances should not be a burden to the general fund. New Business: 1. Reserve Apparatus Use and Policy Chief Moser stated Engine 72 is being plagued with other crews taking equipment off the rig when switching out to the reserve engine. The captains of Station 72 have come up with a policy that when crews are switching to Engine 72, they remove needed equipment from their truck and put it on the reserve truck when switching over. Finally when Engine 72 is returned, the truck should be cleaned. The policy will be released to operations soon. Chief Kriwer said the Policy Committee died in the past but needs to be revived. 2. Bike Team Maintenance It has been several years since training for the bike team has been done and bicycles are in need of servicing. Furthermore, the drug box storage is out of compliance with D.H.S. regulations. It was proposed that the bike team be disbanded and replaced by the use of the Ranger or quads for events. Chief Light said this needs to be vetted through operations before a decision is made. 2 3. Update Fire Department Web Pages The city is updating the web page for the department. Each Chief is assigned a different section of the website to update. Chief Devendorf is working with Kenny Scott on this project. 4. Off District Assignments and Availability Chief Light said no more than 10% of fire fighting force can be deployed at any time, except engine crew assignment. 5. Time & Attendance ExecuTime is coming and we will need to make it work. It is not a control measure but mandated by the health care law. TeleStaff will still be used to staffing. This is expected to go live July 1st. 6. Fire Investigation Utilization Chief Devendorf is reviewing the call out procedures. Chief Kriwer said an SOG is in place and can be revised. 7. Overtime Training time is not being utilized and can be for backfilling when personnel are in classes. This money needs to be taken from the right account. We are trying to pay for recertification classes from this day forward but as of July 1st, all recertification classes will be paid for as well as Tape and Chart. Because of recent accidents and injuries, P.T.O. will be curtailed unless already approved. This can be flexible depending on time needed off. 8. SAFER Grant Chief Moser stated we need to work for this. Having the truck companies staffed will enhance our ability to obtain this grant. We would have to get support from elected officials to help us move forward. Chief Light said that because this is a grant, the bottom 9 in the department will be exposed to layoffs if grant is eliminated. 9. Kudos Schmieder Family – Donation to Flagstaff Hotshot who is battling cancer St. Luke’s Episcopal Church – Community outreach delivering meals to the homebound on Christmas Day. Open Forum Chief Kriwer • February 27th is the disaster drill at the high school. Resources may be stretched during this time. • A PSPRS meeting is on Monday. The decision on Misner and Warneke needs to be signed. • ARFF is in a holding pattern, but the program is doing okay. • Peer support is going okay. Training will be held in April. Jaimie Sventek • Budget is on-going. Chief Essex • Bids for the exhaust system are in and being analyzed. Chief Lucas • A communication meeting will be held to change frequency plans to make it easier for everyone. Chief Moser • EMS week is coming, needs to confer with Jaimie. • Heart monitors are on the council agenda for next Tuesday. Engines are going to be used as hotspots for the monitors to work. We also might need to use a Verizon Wireless card as a backup. The new heart monitor systems might attract studies about how this system works. Follow-Up Items 3 Meeting adjourned at 9 :40AM.

 

0046_Sender_Light,Dennis - FirstRecipient_marsha.collier@prescott-az.gov - Facial Hair Policy Memo Sept 2015.docx.pdf:

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT 1700 Iron Springs Road Prescott, AZ 86305 (928) 777-1700 Dennis B. Light, Fire Chief TDD (928) 445-6811 FAX (928) 776-1890 Purpose and Policy Recommendation: On Tuesday September 8th, 2015 I was made aware of a citizens concern that had been directly relayed to me through the Office of the City Manager. This concern was related to the Prescott Fire Department allowing its members to have facial hair which interferes with the mask seal as identified within the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 29, 1910.134 (g)(1)(i)(A). This regulation and its various sub-parts govern the industry best practices in regards to respiratory protection. Early in my tenure I made a casual inquiry as to why we were allowing our members the ability to wear facial hair in such a way that appeared to be in conflict with the aforementioned standards. It seemed that the change to the personal appearance policy occurred sometime after the tragedy of the Granite Mountain Inter-agency Hotshot Crew (GMHIC) and was the consensus of fire administration at the time. The thoughts behind that determination was to provide a unified family/brotherhood approach in the aftermath of the Yarnell Hill tragedy which I fully understood as to need. After being informed on the matter and how the determination was made by those in this office at the time I decided to table this matter until such time that it became an issue of concern from inside or outside the department. That time has come as a result of a concerned retired firefighter expressing his desire to care about the safety and well-being of Prescott Fire Department Firefighters by bringing this matter to our attention. In review of the applicable CFR and subsequent review of NFPA Standard 1981 as well as best practices in other departments it is clear that facial hair cannot come between the seal and the face at any point. Our normal practice has been to annually fit test personnel although we are currently in arrears with our compliance on this particular need to ensure a sound fit. Therefore it is very clear that there is an impetus for change to existing policy. As such the following policy language within the policy manual will be stricken and/or removed: Section 702.1 Employees with the training and potential to wear a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) in the course of their job duties will be allowed facial hair in the contemporary style of goatee or mustache. Any mustache or goatee must be neat and trimmed. Subsequent to the removal of the above paragraph the following will be inserted and enforced: Section 702.1 Facial hair such as moustaches and side-burns shall be worn and trimmed in such a way to ensure no part interferes with the facial skin to mask contact. Beards and other facial hair styles (goatees) are notpermissible. Employees with a medical condition such as pseudofolliculitis may seek medical clearance in the form of a doctor’s note for a temporary waiver which is not to exceed 90 days without renewal to this policy but may not have facial hair longer that ¼” permitted in the area of the mask seals. Application and Implementation of Policy This policy change is to be considered immediate upon distribution of this memorandum. A grace period of 48 hours upon return to work is granted to those employees who are away from email or otherwise out of the communications circles due to PTO, Educational Leave, Off-district, etc. This policy is applicable to those personnel who are en-rolled in the Public Safety Personal Retirement System and subject to wearing self-contained-breathing-apparatus (SCBA) as part of their duty assignments. Enforcement It is the expectation that employees in this classification abide by this policy change and that this policy is enforced at all levels within the supervisory structure. Failure to abide by this policy may result in pursuit of progressive discipline as outlined in city and department policy manuals if warranted.

PRESCOTT FIRE DEPARTMENT PLANNING MEETING Minutes Date 09/13/16, Time 0818-0955 Location: Station 71 Present: Chief Light, Cory Moser, Dave Essex, Ralph Lucas, Don Devendorf, Dan Morgan, Scott Luedeman, Nate Keegan, Jaimie Sventek, Dan Bauman Recorder: Jaimie Sventek Chiefs Report: The City picnic is scheduled for September 24th from 1100 to 1400 at Granite Creek Park. Wristbands are available at the Administration office for those interested in attending. The new City Manager, Michael Lamar, will attend and his official start date will be October 10th. The City Council will be holding their Phase II planning meeting on September 22nd. They have set four goals: financial stability (solve PSPRS debt), economic development, government efficiency, and quality of life. The Council may attempt to place something on the May ballot concerning the PSPRS debt. New Business: 1. Auxiliary Fire Corps Eighteen people attended the open house last month. Ten people submitted resumes and will be interviewed today at 1PM by Chiefs Moser, Devendorf, and Mr. Nunez from HR. The interview panel will submit five recommendations to Chief Light. 2. ITS/Communications Issues Mr. Keegan stated that engine 974 needs a new radio. Station 71 will have WiFi installed first. There will be a corporate side and guest user’s access. Station 73’s radio issue has been fixed. Mr. Keegan is sending the cost to upgrade TeleStaff to Chief Light. The upgraded TeleStaff will be web based and easier to access remotely. Once Mr. Keegan receives the approval to move forward he will schedule the upgrade. Tri-Tech will be replacing the current CAD dispatching system. Approximately ten months after the CAD system installation is complete, IT will implement the records management system (RMS) side, which will most likely be the Alpine software. 3. AFG The AFG grant application opens soon. Chief Light is not sure if the extrication equipment will fit the criteria or not. If so, he would like to replace all of the units. Possible ideas are the portable air compressor at the Training Center and ventilation fans. Chief Light encourages all to look at the criteria and if something fits, take the idea to Karen so that the department may apply. 4. Remembrance Rescue Project There is a former Rescue 5 unit that has been rehabilitated from 9-11. The project is a non-profit charity organization with 100% volunteers that travel around the country taking the rescue unit to different departments to host. The unit shares the history with community and students in the area. The Rescue would need to be housed in doors and 3 to 5 drivers would be needed. The Rescue continues the spirit of the event and it could be used as a community fund raising tool. There is interest amongst Prescott Fire Personnel in hosting the unit. Chief Lucas will look into the Project and report back. 5. Lexipol – Updating Policy Manual Chief Light sent information to the senior staff and labor management to see if there was any level of interest in possibly using Lexipol’s subscription service for a policy manual. Chief Light is not sure if this is necessary and he is not sold on the idea. However, Chief Light believes that PFD’s policy manual does need polished and he will update if the Lexipol service is not chosen. Chief light has requested that the senior staff and labor management get back to him with their thoughts about the idea by email. 6. Badge Pinning / Promotional Ceremony Scheduled – October 14th, Station 71 @ 1330 There will be a planning meeting on Friday, September 16th to discuss the details. The media will be invited. Chief Light is working to get Prescott Fire’s name on the front page with good things and on a positive note. There is an upward wave and Chief Light would like to engage the media more at this time. The ceremony will be the same as in the past with the Chief’s philosophy the same. The event is expected to last no more than an hour. The mayor will not be in attendance. 7. Kudos Dave Essex, Karen Cannizzaro, Melissa Busy – Audit for grant Lois & Bob Hepner –71 C Shift, Donation Tracy & Nancy Doryland – Thank you & Donation Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters – Attendance at annual picnic Linda Dempsey – Thank you, Station 71 Kennedy Robert Bodine – Outstanding service 2015 Life Safety Achievement Award Open Forum Chief Moser • The iPad Air tablet has been choose for the ePCR equipment. For approximately 2 months there will be dual entry; paper and electronic. The paper PCR’s will be the primary form of documentation during the process. The computer entry will be strongly encourage among the crews, but not required during this time. The Imagine Trend software will be available on the station computers. There will be one trainer on each shift (Archer, Pluimer, Beyea). There will be a hard deadline date set for the conversion to ePCR. The training will be intensive. When the new CAD software (Tri-Tech) is in place, the data will eventually dump into the Image Trend software for the ePCR. • What is the sense at City Hall regarding the ARFF program? Chief Light stated none and that he has an RFP. It would cost approximately $400k for contractors to run the program. Chief Light stated that oversight of the ARFF program is to remain under the B Shift Battalion Chief. • Chief Moser will be on vacation from September 19-26. Chief Lucas • There was a close call at station 74. Watch when backing and protect people. A solution is in the works. Risk management is aware. • As far as wildland assignments are concerned, it has been a slow year as the department has turned down 10- 12 requests due to staffing issues. Chief Devendorf • The new ARFF Index A vehicle is in service. Chief Moser and Captain Peterson are working to see how much of the grant money was spent, as it must all be spent by October. Chief Light • Chief Light will be out of the office a bit this month. • Inquired if there was a need to continue the trade cap rule as the topic has been brought up by several crews during his rides. Chief light would prefer that the crews be self-managing. Does the number of trades need to be nailed down to a number? Feedback is requested. • Chief Light would like to rebuild the Professional Services Division after Chief Essex retires. Chief Light would like to move Chief Essex’ position to a Deputy Chief and open the recruitment to the outside. The Deputy would have response capability and would most likely be someone from with Arizona. A non-sworn employee could fill the Training position. Chief Light had lunch with Retired Chief McElwee and discussed some options. Ms. Sventek • Costco now accepts all Visa credit cards. Some employees have used their own membership cards to access the store and made their purchases with their City issued credit card. This is not a problem; however, when the City membership and credit cards are used, the City receives 2% cash back on the purchases, which equates to approximately $600-$700 back to the City. Please attempt to use a City membership and Costco credit card when possible. Costco membership and credit cards are available to check out at the Finance office. Chief Essex • UniSource Gas is conducting training at the training center at 1000 and 1400 Wednesday through Friday of this week. • The floor inside station 71 will be replaced beginning October 24th. It will require the stripping of the old floor and the new floor cannot be walked on for 48 hours after the epoxy is applied. Prescott Fire must cover or remove all items in the station. Chief Light suggested that Infinity RV be contacted to possibly use/rent an RV for the crew while the work is being conducted. • The air compressor on the utility can be fixed with a UL listed pop off value. It would cost approximately $3k to purchase an additional six SCBA cylinders. Captain Bauman • Inquired as to when the Firefighter job announcement would be posted, how long would it be open, and if the requirements would stay the same. Chief Essex said that the job announcement would be posted for a month and that the written test would take place sometime in November. The Firefighter I & II certification requirements remain. A candidate must obtain their EMT certification prior to appointment to the position. The 130/190 course can be taught in house. Chief Light said that there needs to be a logical sequence and standard testing time to testing to build capacity. The Firefighter job announcement will open in a couple of weeks. Chief Light expects the department to be at a point of stability in 18-24 months. • Is the department was going to continue to provide SWAT medics as there are some medics that are interested in the assignment. Captain Luedeman • Truck 72 passed the ladder testing/certification and is back in service. • He has received calls from Williamson Valley to use/borrow PFD’s ladder testing materials. Chief Light expressed some concern for the City’s exposure. Chief Light would like for the department to speak with Risk Management to see what is required before moving forward. Follow- Up Items Meeting adjourned at 9:55AM

8-2-20 9:09 PM- do a little more before I sleep-

I know there are more folks out there craving to be that light of truth- I can help- I am praying for you to have such courage to do this Divine path set before you to do. I pray for your physical healings and challenges. As I close my eyes tonight I envision Jesus flowing into your body with every breathe, healing and restoring you from the inside out and let you know you are not alone. God's Plan, remember. I am saying let me do nice things for you. For me, my time has limitations because I am ill but also it is my time to learn, study, and gather information and now share it. Once it is shared we all can discover and go over it all. Sometimes we are in a spot where we think we cannot tell a soul the dark hours we face but in reality every time I think we face that, we just have to look up and pray. I have known folks who lived way into their hundreds and always they tell me it is church or God that gave them that longevity. If you are filled with sorrow and pain, I have been praying for you. If my pages of the blog make you feel an intensity you just don't like then change to another blog page. I am here for the ones struggling. The ones who love their life and job just tired of the Fire Industry leadership. I am too; tired of it. Someone tonight told me Mayhew's book should have 'children's book illustrations' and they said 'This is the [H]uman [F]actors expert?? [N]o wonder the SAIR is pure crap with no real findings. This guy is what is wrong in the system. His 'Learning From Yarnell" training exercise puff piece...could have been written by a 10 year old.' I am tired that Mayhew's new book series does not come with childrens book illustrations, maybe I can understand him better. He should have a disclaimer too. Really. I can say that because I have given the world more than he ever did on the Yarnell Hill Fire. I have investigated it more than he has "publicly" - and that is sad. Why a book? Why not help these loved ones piece together what they have and I have and finish your job. Who cares if the product is done and errors were made. Fix them by not making "made for profit" books and help us finish what you started. Fix your messes. I can help you and so many loved ones too. State it publicly that you have seen the evidence we speak about- or someone you worked with has...say it. Stop the book series bullshit. Integrity matters! and so do Lives- they matter!
