Please, do NOT drink and drive.Our dedicated men and women work all hours of the day and night, through any conditions including a worldwide pandemic. They are in the jail and on the road and we are very proud of them. So, it is frustrating and makes us sad when while they are diligently doing their job, someone by their own bad choices causes them injury or death. A person decided to drink and drive and now we have a Deputy in ICU. Prayers are welcome. ... See MoreSee Less

This afternoon Birmingham Firefighters responded to a citizen assist. During the call it was notice the homeowner lost the use of a toaster type oven, one she relies on to prepare her meals. After mitigating her situation, Engine 2 and Rescue 2 returned back to the residence to install a brand new air fry/ toaster oven provided by Local 911 and fire administration donations. In addition were also able to outfit her home with updated smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. “Our Family, Helping Yours....” ... See MoreSee Less

Local 1357 would like to remind all citizens to drive and operate with extreme caution while navigating around an active fire or EMS incident. Today while extinguishing a garage fire involving downed power lines, MHFD had one of our hoses driven over by a car. Luckily there was no damage to equipment and no injuries associated with this incident. Water is our lifeline when it comes to fire fighting. Driving over a fire hose can not only damage equipment or cause injuries, it could disrupt our water supply during the most vulnerable moments of our job. Without water, we are unable to extinguish fires which allows us to preserve life and property. ... See MoreSee Less

On this night 19 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. Tonight as you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. #wewillneverforget ...

Tom taught many of the EMTs and Paramedics on our department. He will be missed by us all.It is with a heavy heart we have to report the sad news of RFD Retiree Tom Mill's passing yesterday. Tom retired as our Chief of Training in 2000. He stayed active at MCC in the EMT/Medic program for many years. Tom has left a lasting legacy of training so many of the current EMT/Paramedics and Firefighters throughout Macomb County. He will be missed but not forgotten. We will keep you updated when we get any information about a future memorial.This is the information his family posted to Facebook:Hey all. Yes, it is true. Yesterday at 5:36 pm surrounded by friends and family, my father, Thomas R. Mill took his last breath. He had been diagnosed as COVID positive and was making huge strides, but a hypercoagulable state caused a blood clot to travel to his brain. We are completely devastated. Please respect our privacy, as we are struggling to survive each minute without him. Per his wishes, he will be cremated and his ashes laid around a beautiful tree in our yard, so he can watch over us. There will be no service, but rest assured that as things settle, we will celebrate his life the way he wanted, with a huge memorial party. Thank you all for your well wishes. In time, we may figure out how to carry on without him, but right now, we are just trying to figure out how to breathe again. ... See MoreSee Less
