As March draws to a close and April 1st rapidly approaches #youroaklandfirefighters are proud to announce the “union retirement” of Dan Robertson! He’s not retiring from the #OFD just yet, but for the first time since 1993 he won’t be an elected Union Official for Local 55! An Oakland kid through and through- @ofd20dr has held nearly every post in our great Union, and led us through thick and thin as our General President. He proudly represented Local 55 as the only charter Local in the @iaff_team10th district at the #IAFF ‘s 100 year convention in 2018. Generations of #oaklandfirefighters are all better off because of his leadership, sacrifice, and lifelong commitment to service and #organizedlabor .
HIM! HIM! ......you #oakland folks know the rest..
#youroaklandfirefighters are so moved by everyone in #TheTown stepping up in these crazy times and doing what they can to help. A big shout out to @wrightandbrown for creating a different kind of #craftcocktail ! #handsanitizer for the win! Stay safe, stay healthy, maintain #socialdistancing and WASH YOUR HANDS!
IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFO to share with the public: Right now, write up a medical history and medication list for every member of your family and make sure it's handy (And in your ICE file on your phone). Many, many hospitals and EMS are not allowing ANYONE to accompany a patient to the hospital. If you or a loved one has to go the hospital for ANY reason you don't want EMS, doctors or nurses missing key information. Most of us have plenty of time on our hands right now. So, no excuses! Do it today. Stay healthy and share this with family and friends. #covid_19 #ice #MedicalID #PSA #washyourhands #socialdistancing #firestatter... See MoreSee Less
