I worked with mike at 13’s for three years. He along with all of 13/1 changed who am, he gave me someone to strive to be, he is a caring medic and sets an awesome example. Your recognition is well deserved. Love from 1401 in Cali brother.

I’m working with him RIGHT NOW! I hope he’ll sign my phone.

Lt was my instructor and a brother at 13s before I left! Congrats on the promotion!

When riding up and I finally get a first in fire and open my phone after the fire to this picture while he was the ISU.

Overman family are really nice guys

Makes it rain even

Congrats

It was a big day for community service for Local 136! We partnered with the Living City Project for one of their many community clean-up days, to further beautify the Old North Dayton area. A special thanks to our on-duty crews from Station 8 and also Commissioners Matt Joseph and Shenise Turner-Sloss for Dayton City Commission for coming out with us and lending a hand in the cleanup.

We also partnered with the American Red Cross - Dayton Area Chapter and the Patterson Park Civic Association to install smoke detectors in homes in the area. Special thanks to our on-duty crews from Stations 11 and 15, and our Fire Prevention Bureau for leading the charge.

Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to help today. Your efforts make a difference for our city, and #daytonfirelocal136 is proud to be a part of that.

COMPLICATED

7 April 2022

This particular fire started on the first floor, but quickly made its way up to the attic. Fire conditions on the third floor attic, and concerns for safety, forced the operation to go defensive. Crews were able to protect the neighboring houses from catching fire as well. All occupants were out of the structure upon arrival, although some suffered minor injuries during evacuation.
