Yakima Firefighters IAFF Local 469

Here is a snapshot of a recent 48 hour shift for your Yakima Firefighters.

One of the appeals of being a firefighter for many people is the excitement of never knowing what to expect on any given day.

As you can see in the photo, at any point in time we can be going straight from a medical call to a fire or a car accident, or whatever else the day may bring.

Everyday brings new challenges that we as firefighters must face and overcome, and problems that must be solved.

The hydraulic ram is fully extended and extremely damaged. The only thing I can think of that could cause that much damage is, the dump bed was accidentally activated and hit the overpass while driving under it.. 🤷🏻‍♂️

What type of truck is that? Any idea how it happened?

Did that happen today

Noah John I wonder who it was 🙏🏻❤️

Is that I82 or Hwy12 ?

Supper dump. His box was down but his strong arm that was connected to box caused it. Super dumps dangerously scary when roads. Are a little wet or icy. There known to do this. I'll never own one and they should not be legal.

Kimberley Krebs Wertenberger this is what it was..

Thank you for all the messages of support and condolences! Many of you asked how to help. The Bellevue Police Foundation is accepting donations to support Officer Jordan Jackson’s young family. You can donate through this link.
bit.ly/BPF-Jackson-Fund Thank you!

We are saddened to report that 34-year-old Officer Jordan Jackson died from his injuries in a collision early Monday morning while on duty. Officer Jackson has been a valuable member of the Bellevue Police Department since 2018. After two years on the force, Jackson transferred to the traffic unit as a motorcycle officer. He was recently honored as employee of the quarter for his excellent quality of work and service to the community. His supervisor commended Jackson for his leadership in the department and eagerness to take on additional responsibility.
“We are devastated by Officer Jackson’s tragic death,” said Chief Wendell Shirley. “Our hearts go out to his wife, two children, his family and friends, and extended BPD family as they grieve. This is a huge loss for the entire community.”
Before becoming a police officer in March 2018, Jackson was an EMT, volunteer firefighter, and a member of the King County Sheriff’s Officer Search and Rescue Volunteer K-9 Unit.
Officer Jackson was born in Spokane, grew up in Bellevue and graduated from Issaquah High School and Central Washington University. He leaves behind his wife and two young children.
Funeral arrangements are underway and will be announced once they are finalized.
