A Pittsburgh firefighter tested positive for COVID-19 today. The firefighter testing positive was never at work once experiencing symptoms & self reported the symptoms while off duty. The public was not exposed to that firefighter. See our press release below.
Do you know any Pittsburgh area children that are in need of a new warm winter coat? Send them our way on October 12th! We’ll be providing new coats to children in need up to ten years of age.
We’re only one day away from #PGHFireOps! Tomorrow, our state legislators will trade in their usual office suits for PPE (personal protective equipment) clothing and experience a day as a firefighter. They’ll extinguish a fire, perform a search and rescue, learn to operate aerial ladders and more.

Tune in to our live feed Wednesday, September 4 (tomorrow!) at 10AM!
For a firefighter, there’s no such thing as “that’s not in my job description.” We’re not only first responders to fires, but to medical emergencies, car accidents, natural disasters and more. It’s not just a job to us, it’s in our nature.

On September 4th, our state’s legislators will put their valor to the test by experiencing some of the duties we face on a daily basis. Tune in to our Facebook Live feed of the event! #PGHFireOps #FireOps101
You can also support your local firefighters by learning more about, and supporting, the following 2019-2020 House Bills introduced to the PA State Legislature: 

- House Bill 432: Workers’ Compensation for First Responders with PTSI (post-traumatic stress injury)
- House Bill 1459: Emergency Responder Mental Wellness and Stress Management Program
- House Bills 1627 & 1628: Renewal of the PA Fire and EMS Grant Program
On September 4th, your legislators will suit up and spend a day experiencing the duties of a firefighter. From a burning building to a medical emergency, these individuals will learn what it’s like to make life-saving decisions in a matter of seconds. Be sure to tune into our Facebook Live feed! #PGHFireOps #FireOps101 

We thank all participating legislators for their involvement and enthusiasm!
As a result of the physical and mental stressors firefighters are exposed to on the job, they are at a greater risk of suffering from cardiovascular disease and behavioral health issues than those in other occupations. Despite these life-altering dangers, they suit up every day and save lives. Fire Ops 101, an event occurring on Sept. 4, brings awareness to the difficulties firefighters courageously face on a daily basis. 

Be sure to tune in to our Facebook Live feed of the event to watch as PA legislators make their way through simulated environments. #PGHFireOps

And, learn more about House Bill 432 which would support firefighters struggling with PTSI. You can help your local firefighters by contacting your representative to request they support the Bill.
We’re proud to partner with MSASafety to host Fire Ops 101, an immersive experience for our state’s legislators to experience a day in the boots of a firefighter. On September 4th, tune into our live feed to watch the simulated emergency environments and participating politicians’ reactions and commentary. #PGHFireOps

We extend our most sincere thanks to the legislators who have agreed to partake in this unique event.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out with concerns about the condition of our firefighters. An overnight high rise fire that reached 7 alarms has taken its toll on them. One firefighter was transferred from the scene to the hospital and has since been released. Several firefighters were treated on the scene for minor injuries and burns and all are doing ok. We will update throughout the day as needed.
