Expect high winds, heavy precipitation and winter driving conditions in the mountains. #firefighter #eldoradocounty #placerville #californiaweather #traveltips #safety @nws
B-shift firefighters at Station 17 responded to a structure fire today in Pollock Pines. The fire burned down a detached garage. The adjacent structure received damage to an exterior wall. Fire spread to the rest of the home was prevented by an aggressive attack by firefighters on Engine and Medic 17. @eldofire #firefighter #structurefire #fireman
@eldofire Medic 19 and Pioneer Fire Engine 338 transported a patient to a helispot in Grizzly Flat where @reachairmedical Calstar 3 was waiting to receive the patient. The patient had suffered a fall. #firefighter #calstar #rotarypower #airambulance #paramedics
Repost from @eldofire using @RepostRegramApp - Unfortunately, crews had to put the skills they just trained on to use last night. Crews responded to a vehicle accident on Hwy 50 which was a very technical extrication, requiring crews to use some of skills they have been training on this past week. #firefighter #autoextrication #firedepartment #thereasonwetrain #teamwork @ecffirefighters @calfire @reachairmedical #hurstjawsoflife

A-Shift firefighters participated in an auto extrication battalion drill today. Firefighters trained on vehicle stabilization, lifting and extrication using tools such as the HURST Jaws of Life. This training is critical to allow firefighters the opportunity to increase confidence using our available equipment and to practice differing and unique techniques on a variety of vehicles. Thanks to G&O Body Shop and Towing for providing the vehicles for us to use!

Our deepest condolences go out to the Davis Police Department and the family of Officer Natalie Corona. Another loss for our bothers and sisters in blue. #thinblueline #backtheblue #sameteam #policeofficer #lawenforcement #lawenforcementofficer #firefighter #thinredline
B-shift firefighters participated in our yearly multi-company extrication drill yesterday. Practicing the latest extrication techniques through scenario based training ensures that our firefighters are able to perform quickly and efficiently in a rescue situation. #rescue #hursttools #firefighter #training #jawsoflife #extrication @eldofire
