Apr 27 - KITTY CAM: Helmet camera footage from yesterday shows firefighters from Engine 12 rescuing a cat that had been stuck in a tree for three days. After a brief bit of coaxing, kitty finally gets a firm grab by the scruff of the neck and is brought down safely to a very happy owner and a can of tuna. Nice job Engine 12! Read Post

Apr 25 - As the recruits began Week Eight, we are proud to announce that the Sacramento Fire Academy has become an official California State Accredited Local Academy.

Apr 21 - A garage fire in a home on La Riviera Drive in Sacramento today has once again shown the importance of fire-rated doors in homes with connected garages. The first half of the video shows the heavy fire conditions that met firefighters upon arrival, the second half shows the conditions in the garage and inside of the home after the fire. Two adults were able to evacuate safely and the living quarters of their home are largely undamaged, while fire raged in the garage and a vehicle was a complete loss. Please ensure these connecting doors remain closed at all times. It may save your life! Read Post
