IAFF Local 3711 Debriefs Governor Inslee
On Monday, August 22, 2016, Governor Jay Inslee was debriefed by Spokane District 8 Union Members who made the initial attack on the Yale Road Fire in the Spokane area. These union fire firefighters described their efforts to save homes in the path of the fire front.
Jeff Wainwright, WSCFF 2nd District Representative, further explains that the fire has been making runs all day, and there have been a lot of air operations with rotors, fixed wings, and heavy tankers all day. We urge everyone to stay safe and thank them for their valiant efforts.
Congratulations Kelly Fox!
The WSCFF Congratulates Kelly Fox on his re-election as IAFF 7th District Vice President! We look forward to working with Kelly to keep moving the Magnificent 7th forward for the next four years!
IAFF Local I-66 Member Needs Your Support
It is with deep sadness that the WSCFF and IAFF Local I-66 Boeing Fire Fighters request your assistance for one of our members. Lt. Chris and his wife Peggy Brayton's world was forever changed on the morning of August 7, 2016 when they lost their son and grandson in a catastrophic event. The couple along with their families are trying to come to terms with the devastating loss. The Brayton family is emotionally shattered and are at the same time feeling financial implications. They are currently residing with friends as their home (the place of the tragedy) is inaccessible.
Local I-66 Boeing Fire Fighters have set up an account to assist the Brayton family. Donations can be made to the Brayton Family Benevolent Fund, by calling 1-800-233-2328. Or send your donation to:
