Because of this collaboration, first responders are eligible to receive cancer screenings yearly as part of their annual health check-ups. These exams allow firefighters to stay ahead of hazardous illness that can be contracted from their line of work.<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireVideofireFire
Phoenix Fire and Local 493 Host Annual RBOhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/2948Fire12/6/2023 7:00:00 AMhttps://youtu.be/Hkfygd50EPcPhoenix Fire and Local 493 Host Annual RBO<div class="ExternalClassAD63F804788E4CC9A8CDFBB42B57C99B"><html>RBO is a rich and successful aspect of the Phoenix Fire Department’s history and culture.<br><br>This year marks the 34th Anniversary of our annual Relationships by Objective (RBO) annual Labor Management process. It is an important retreat that allows the Phoenix Fire Department and its partners in United Phoenix Fire Firefighters Association (U.P.F.F.A.) Local 493 to identify organizational priorities that affect our firefighters and civilian support staff. Labor management members work collectively on naming and achieving goals that are critical to helping our department thrive. <br><br>The process began in the late eighties after tumultuous challenges began to erode the relationship between fire labor and management.  The RBO process, which is now deeply institutionalized, begins with a labor management retreat during which both sides bring organizational priorities to the table.  Goals are identified and representatives from labor and management are assigned to find solutions. It allows the fire department to seamlessly come together on issues which effect our members.  <br><br>This year’s annual retreat was held at the city of Phoenix Burton Barr Pulliam Auditorium.  Approximately 75 members attended with the first order of business, to review the 2023 action items.  The event was also broadcast live on the Phoenix Fire Department’s Youtube Channel and social media.<br><br>Action items from this year’s event included development of a strategic plan, examining staffing automation, evaluating a wellness fitness initiative, reviewing the labor management team procedure, an assessment of nature code responses, healthy work hours and a work schedule assessment, career development, and a pilot program on firefighter fitness and injury prevention.<br><br>In the afternoon labor and management leaders discussed new action plans for 2024.  Some action items were carried over, such as the Strategic Plan Implementation and nature code response assessment. Others are new, such as staffing automation and integration, payroll efficiencies and solutions, developing internal and external workshops, and strategies for internal communication. Co-chairs representing labor and management were named for each new action plan. Each sub-committee will name quarterly goals and report regularly to labor management leadership.<br><br>Sometimes a group decision is not possible or not in one or both parties’ best interest. In those cases, the appropriate party (labor or management) will decide. The Fire Chief has the final decision-making authority for management decisions, and the Union President has the final decision-making authority for labor decisions. This is agreed upon by the participants and is a key to the effectiveness of labor/management process. <br><br>The beauty of the RBO process is that it is a “give and take” for both sides and the outcome usually represents what is best for the “greater good” of the organization. That is a win that both labor and management can always agree upon.<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireVideofireFire
City of Phoenix Holds Community Meeting For Future Fire Station 74https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/2945Fire12/1/2023 8:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2945/Newsroom_FIre_Fix.jpgCity of Phoenix Holds Community Meeting For Future Fire Station 74<div class="ExternalClass4C9260A8D4554A0285228DCB585C684D"><p>​​On Thursday, November 30th the City of Phoenix held a community meeting at Pecos Community Center focused on the plans for future Phoenix Fire Station 74. This will be the fourth fire station addition to Ahwatukee. This will complete the firefighting force for the growing community and greatly reduce response times by crews.</p><p>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, District 6 Phoenix City Councilman Kevin Robinson, and District 1 Phoenix City Councilwoman and Public Safety and Justice Chair Ann O'Brien were in attendance of the community meeting. Members of the Phoenix Fire Department's Executive Staff and the City of Phoenix's Parks and Recreation Department joined Pearlman Architects to discuss the future fire station.</p><p>The meeting focused on sharing conceptual designs from Pearlman Architects and the relocation of the Buresa Trailhead. Because the City of Phoenix already owns the land through the Parks and Recreation Department, the project will be fast tracked. But not to fear, the trailhead is not closing and not going far! The relocation of the Buresa Trailhead will be moved less than ¼ of a mile to the west.</p><p>Located on the northwest corner of 19th Avenue and Chandler Boulevard, this will allow for both the enjoyment of the beautiful Phoenix trail and the building of a new 13,250 square foot state of the art fire station.</p><p>Built with sustainability in mind, the future Phoenix Fire Station 74 has been designed per the City of Phoenix building design standards and current adopted building codes. It will incorporate environmental design principals similar to LEED to reduce energy consumption and water preservation.</p><p>The station will be single story and include three bays to house a fire engine and medical rescue. It will also include thirteen unisex dorms for firefighters to operate 24/7, 365 days a year.</p><p>When completed, the Ahwatukee community will have a total of four fire stations with four engine companies, one ladder company, three rescue companies. The city will hire and train 24 new Phoenix firefighters to provide staffing for three shifts and the necessary relief rate. The daily staffing will be six people total, including four on the engine and two on the rescue.</p><p>Construction is set for early 2024 with the goal of completing the station by 2025 to begin operations. ​<br></p></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireNewsfireFire
