    Default LAPD and LAFD.

    I'm curious about the incident involving a couple of LAPD officers involved in a brawl at a restaurant and 6 LAFD firefighters watching and not getting on the radio or jumping in to assist the officers.
    What happened? Is there more to the story?

    Jeff, I can't say that I've heard of this alleged occurrence. Do you have a date, time and location that I might reference as well as a source?

    It was a couple of weeks ago, I do not know the exact date. Somewhere in N. Hollywood.

    I haven't heard of it, nor have my colleagues at Parker Center (LAPD HQ). If you can cite a source, I'll be happy to pursue it.

    I wish I had a name for the source. He said it was all caught on video tape and that the firefighters were being disciplined, not because they did not attempt to help the police officers. They are being disciplined for not getting on the radio and calling back up for the officers.
    He said it happened in the North Hollywood division.

    Default Just a quick question

    Hey guys,
    I made it through the LAFD interview and did the preliminary background back in Sept. as of right now I guess I'm waiting on the results from the panel review??? Does anyone have any idea what the time frame could be? I know its a waiting game, I would appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on how long this will take. Trust me I'm waiting patiently!

    Default Heart Attacks-Genetic Testing

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I know you do not want ads posted but this will save so many lives.!!
    If it had been available 2 months ago it would have saved my fathers life.

    What lead me to this community forum was an article by Forbes magazine reporting Heart Attacks are the #1 reason for deaths amongst firefighters.
    Our company has a first of its kind product that can test your predisposition to heart attacks.

    The Heart Health Genetic Test is the first and only IL1 gene test to identify an individualís predisposition for over-expression of inflammation and increased risk for CVD and acute cardiac events.

    Should you test positive-The Il1 Heart Health Supplement is the first and only nutigenomic supplement that zeroes in on Il1 genes and cardiovascular health. Is specifically formulated to meet the needs of people who test positive for Il1 genotypes.
    This is state of the art science.
    I know you do not want ads posted but this could save so many lives.

    [B]To order your Heart Health Genetic Test or if you would like more information I encourage you to contact me (Terese Foggin) by E-mail at [B]Atthebeach714@aol.com[/B
    Please leave your name, e-mail address and phone # if you wish me to call you.
    Please don't wait, the life you could be saving is yours.

    DNA Testing Service

    The state-of-the-art genetic testing laboratory is registered under the Clinical Laboratories Improvements Act (CLIA), to assure accurate, high quality and secure results for every Genetic Test. The laboratory is committed to providing quick, easy and reliable testing service and quality tests:

    User-friendly sample collection packets
    Centralized laboratory process utilizing best available analysis techniques for reliable results and short turnaround times.

    Top quality product information and educational materials available including technical support from qualified staff including medical geneticists and genetic counselors are available to help with the interpretation and communication of results.
    Respect for your privacy is our top concern.
    Please don't wait, the life you could be saving is yours.




    In the last decade, studies in men and women have shown that inflammation is an important risk factor for heart disease, perhaps equal in importance to unhealthy cholesterol levels. Recent scientific discoveries indicate that some of the risk for cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks, is due to variations in the genes that we inherit. Just as with conventional cardiovascular risk factors such as high cholesterol, smoking and diabetes, the presence of one or more of these DNA variations does not mean that an individual will develop cardiovascular disease. However, using knowledge about genetic risk factors to make informed choices about diet and lifestyle may reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the future.




    Gen Heart Health is the first and only genetic test that analyzes two interleukin 1 (IL1) genes for variations that identify an individualís predisposition for over-expression of inflammation and risk for cardiovascular disease. IL1 genetic susceptibility may not initiate or cause heart disease but rather may lead to earlier or more severe disease. The IL1 genetic test can be used to differentiate certain IL1 genotypes associated with varying inflammatory responses to identify individuals at risk for cardiovascular disease and heart attacks even before age 60.

    The IL1 genetic test for heart health is based on scientific data from genetic association studies obtained through research collaborations with scientific experts in cardiovascular disease at leading academic institutions. This exclusive, patented test developed by Interleukin uses the latest medical research and technology to provide the best available genetic information to help make decisions aimed at preserving heart health.

    The genetic test provides risk information independent of traditional risk factors (such as family history, hypertension and smoking) in assessing risk for heart disease. The IL1 composite genotypes are as important as many of the standard risk factors currently associated with heart disease. A positive result means that the DNA pattern in your IL1 genes is associated with a tendency to increased inflammation and to heart disease before you reach the age of 60. Individuals who test positive have about twice the risk of heart attacks when compared with individuals who are at the lowest level of risk.

    Knowledge of an individualís IL1 genotype identifies a life-long influence on inflammation, which can be modulated by preventive actions. The IL1 composite genotypes associated with increased risk are common in most ethnic and racial groups. Knowing predisposition to inflammation can help one to develop a personalized health plan (nutrition and lifestyle) for risk reduction. Nutritional and lifestyle decisions targeting the reduction of inflammation induced by IL1 may improve heart health.

    I took the written exam last summer......it's taken quite awhile to go through the process. I just concluded my background investigation which im sure went great seeing how it only seemed to last about a week and a half total. Sorry for not posting more soon....I dont jump on this forum that much. Wish me luck at this point I should be at final panel review and either gonna get the thumbs up or the ththumbs down! Hopefully it will be thumbs up!
