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/fireVideo
Critical Incident Briefing - November 20, 2023 - 25th Drive and Earll Drivehttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2947Police12/4/2023 10:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/D86PxkHpX54Critical Incident Briefing - November 20, 2023 - 25th Drive and Earll Drive<div class="ExternalClass8994475272CB45F3948E2AC0310440A0"><html> <p>​<strong style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.</strong></p> <p>The Phoenix Police Department released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on November 20, 2023 in the area of 25th Drive and Earll Drive.</p> <p>This incident originally began in the area of 24th Drive and Thomas Road when Phoenix Police contacted a man after an officer almost struck the man as he rode his bike midblock across Thomas Road. </p> <p>During this contact, the officer detained the man by escorting him to the ground. While on the ground the man did not follow commands. The officer saw a handgun in the man's waistband and order the man not to move. The man resisted and forced his way to his feet. The officer pushed the man away to create distance and took cover behind her patrol car. The man ran away west on Thomas Road. While running the man fired multiple rounds in the officer's direction.  </p> <p> </p> <p>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office. </p> <p>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. This is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.​<br><br></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo

That's why we are so excited to host another Venture Café event to bring our city's best minds together to brainstorm innovative ways to create additional shade. Our best ideas come from our most passionate residents, and I can't wait to see what solutions folks bring to the table," said Mayor Gallego.</p> <p>On Dec. 7, more than 30 participants will break into groups to hack innovative solutions to expand manufactured shade across the city. The teams will then present their ideas to a panel of judges and the Venture Café Phoenix community.</p> <p>The winning team will receive a grand total of $3,500 and the second-place team will receive $1,500. All funds will be divided equally among team members. <br><strong> </strong><br>In April 2023, the Office of Innovation hosted its inaugural Innovate PHX Challenge at Venture Café Phoenix, powered by the Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation (CPI). More than 100 people participated in the all-day event developing ideas to expand access to chilled drinking water in public spaces. Innovation is currently testing ideas that came out of the challenge, including heat mitigation materials.</p> <p>Phoenix residents interested in attending the hackathon can Join the City of Phoenix and Venture Café Phoenix on Dec. 7 from 5-7 p.m. at 850 N. 5th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004.</p> <p>For more information contact <a href="mailto:innovate@phoenix.com" target="_blank">innovate@phoenix.com</a> or visit phoenix.gov/innovation.<br></p> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/innovationNews
