Company Officer Training 101: Fair vs. Consistent

Fair vs. Consistent.Example 1: It’s 0703 and Bob is walking into the engine bay. He called you about 15 minutes prior to shift change and told you he was going to be a little late, he had a flat tire about 5 miles down the road. You asked if he needed help and he stated no, he was already in the process of putting the spare tire on and wouldn’t take him but 10-15 minutes. You said “Ok, see you in a few.”Example 2: It’s 0740 and Tyler is calling your phone. You answer it and he tells you he over…See More

The Benefits of the Low Prop in Firefighter Bailout Training

We have the distinct honor and pleasure to offer our Firefighter Bailout class at FDIC 2015 this year as one of the HOT classes.  We feel, like most, that we should train and drill constantly on the basics like engine company operations, search, ventilation, fire behavior, ladder work, forcible and the list goes on, to prevent the need for a firefighter to have to exit an…See More

Video: Family dog rescued from massive house fire; home a total...


El Paso Fire crews were able to rescue a family's dog from a massive house fire in Northeast El Paso early this morning.

Crews were dispatched to a massive blaze in the 10800 block of Sapphire St. when neighbors saw the fire and immediately called 911 around 4:45 a.m. Sunday morning. When crews arrived on the scene, they found heavy smoke and fire coming from the roof of the house.

Responding Emergency crews determined that no one was home at the time of the fire except a dog that was rescued from inside the home.

The fire was brought under control by 5:33 a.m.. The home was fully engulfed in flames, but firefighters were able to protect the neighboring homes. The roof of the home collapsed in the fire and house is considered a total loss.

There were no injuries to residents or fire personnel. A total of 9 units and 24 personnel from the El Paso Fire Department responded to this incident. El Paso Police, Texas Gas Service, El Paso Electric, City of El Paso Planning & Inspections and the American Red Cross assisted in the incident.

Damages are estimated at $120,000.  The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The El Paso Fire Department would like to remind the public about their FREE Smoke Detector Program. In less than 30 seconds, a small flame can get completely out of control and begin filling a home with thick, black, poisonous smoke. In just a few minutes, a home can become completely engulfed with flames. With the advance notice of a working smoke alarm, residents can escape with their lives.

Residents who do not have a smoke detector who live within the city limits of El Paso, own their home and are willing to let the El Paso Fire Department make the installation, can request a FREE smoke detector by calling 485-5699.
