Early this AM on January 19th, 2003 at approx. 0945hrs the Porter, TX Fire Dept. responded to a building fire and lost at least one Fire Fighter in the Line-of-Duty.

The fire was 6 blocks from the volunteer station in Porter, TX and was reported to be a 100'x100' wood/sheet metal Autobody Repair facility.

Upon arrival of the first engine, heavy fire was showing from the rear. The crew (4 Fire Fighters) entered via the unburned showroom side of the building with a 1 3/4" hose line. As they entered, approx. 3', a Flashover occurred, trapping all four Fire Fighters.

As the air horns sounded to vacate the building, only three FF's on the line exited...2 of which were 'on fire' with serious injuries. The third FF suffered minor injuries.

The fourth Fire Fighter (unknown name, just 25 yoa) was still inside. Appearently he became disoriented and was found in an office and later died from his injuries.

More details forth coming.

God Bless, Stay Safe and Keep the Faith!

On Sunday, January 19, 2003, at 1355 hours (1:55 p.m.), nine companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, two Battalion Command Teams, and two LAFD Rescue Ambulances, under the direction of Battalion Commander Ralph Ramirez, respond to a structure fire at 436 South Clarence Street in the Boyle Heights area. First units on the scene reported a two-story 4-plex, with fire showing from one unit on the first floor. Fire Fighters using handlines aggressively attacked the fire while simultaneously conducting search and rescue operations, confined the fire to the kitchen area and extinguished the fire eight minutes. During the initial search and rescue of the involved unit, the body of a sixty-year old male confined to a wheelchair was found and declared dead on the scene. Two other male adults were injured during an attempted rescue of the victim; one suffered smoke inhalation and the other suffered a laceration to his right foot, both were transported to White Memorial Hospital good condition. No other injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is listed as under investigation. Fire damage is estimated at $25,000. ($20,000 structure and $5,000 contents)

We offer pager coverage from Bangor, Maine to Washington DC (our corridor coverage system), our New England States Regional System and now our NEW Nationwide System for the fire buff who travels around the country. Incident coverage includes Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Maine.

We page Working Fires and greater, Motor Vehicle Accidents using Jaws, MCI, or Medflight Helicopter. Police Incidents such as Shootings, stabbings, car chases, etc. and Major NEWS incidents.

We have a National Group for multiple alarms that we get from our affiliates across the country.
We have several groups to choose from and all groups have the option to be turned off. We also use a state of the art FLEX system which allows us to page 240 characters.

A feature for those outside our pager service area allows us to page our incidents to your personal alphanumeric pager or to your digital cell phone.

We also offer E-mail of our incidents to your E-mail address or E-mail enabled Wireless device.

For existing Fire Paging groups we have the TAC9 USA Computer for multiple alarm fires. A Fire Paging group sends one page to this computer, either by SNPP, WCTP, SMTP (E-mail), or TAP (dial up) and the system sends that multiple alarm fire to all your reciprocal groups. That simple !

Call us for details or check us out on the web.

Thank You for your interest in TAC9 PAGING.
