LOS ANGELES, CA:
MAJOR EMERGENCY STRUCTURE FIRE


On Thursday, September 4, 2003 at 1343 hours nineteen companies of Firefighters, six Rescue Ambulances, seven Battalion Command Teams, one EMS Battalion Captain and two helicopters under the direction of Assistant Chief Michael Fulmis responded to reported smoke from the roof of a fifteen-story high-rise at 111 North Hope Street in the Civic Center/Bunker Hill area. First units on scene did report smoke showing from the roof of the Department of Water and Power building. Additional resources were requested including two helicopters for observation as firefighters made their way up the stairwells to locate the source of the fire. Upon arriving to the roof firefighters discovered a 15’ x 15’ area of roofing that was burning. Fire personnel using handlines confined the fire to the area of origin and extinguished the fire in twenty-nine minutes with the majority of the time getting to the roof and locating the fire. No injuries were reported. Approximately four thousand employees and one hundred civilians were evacuated by the Fire Department in coordination with building safety personnel. The cause of the fire was incendiary and the loss was estimated at $2500 to structure only.

Code Amber is a missing persons broadcast emergency response system that was developed to help speed the notification process of missing children across North America and Canada. The entire process takes about 90 seconds per child. This allows hundreds of parents to take advantage of the event daily! Each parent receives an 8x11" laser printed 'Bio-Doc'® with each child's fingerprints and digital photograph along with a 3.5" diskette with the information contained in HTML (web) format. These invaluable documents can significantly speed up the notification process when used in a missing child emergency.

MESAR will be holding a Code Amber Event on 12-13 September 2003 in southern Illinois where parents can bring their children to receive their very own Bio-Docs.

More information will be added on this event as it develops.
