To pretend that Boeing’s decision to lock out their firefighters wouldn’t have an impact on the overall safety of ALL Boeing employees was lunacy. End the lockout.Today, Pierce County firefighters responded to a medical aid call at the Boeing Frederickson facility. Normally, Boeing would have three qualified firefighter/EMTs would have been on scene within minutes to provide basic life support skills prior to our arrival.

However, Boeing locked out their firefighter/EMTs on May 4th.

As a result, today’s response took 18 minutes from the time of dispatch due to closer units already being on calls in our community. We hope for a positive outcome for the patient.

Tell The Boeing Company to bring back their firefighters and put safety over profits. #BoeingLockout

Please take a moment to read through the story shared by the Boeing Firefighters IAFF Local I-66. We stand with those fighting for a safe working environment, and a contract comparable to other local firefighters.What's the value of a Boeing Firefighter?

For this man and his family, it is priceless. In the yellow vest, center, is Mark Black. Mr Black is a proud, long time Boeing Company employee. Mr Black experienced a sudden cardiac arrest last fall, and collapsed while working at Boeing. Mr Black's friend Tom was nearby and recognized the situation. CPR was immediately began and the emergency system activated, quickly bringing Boeing Firefighters to the scene. Boeing Firefighters took over for Tom and continued to work to resuscitate Mr Black. Fortunately they were successful and delivered Mr Black to a local hospital where after a recovery he has since returned to work.

The Boeing Company Production Center in Everett, WA is the listed as one of the largest buildings in the world and sits on a complex of 98.3 acres. It is home to an estimated 30,000 employees working in 3 different shifts.

So when you ask yourself, what's a firefighters value at the Boeing Company.... this is just another reminder. It is said that irreversible brain damage begins when someone is without oxygen for 4-6 minutes. That's why early recognition and CPR are so critical. If Boeing Firefighters are not ON-SITE because they are locked out, it increases the response time to even longer while waiting for the local FD to arrive. As a Boeing employee are you okay with that?

Continued health and happiness to you and your family Mr Black. We hope this is resolved so we can get back to keeping people safe on Boeing properties.
