Welcome home. 🇺🇸
Between Friday & Saturday, we welcomed home the 46 members of CA Task Force 4 who were deployed to #HurricaneIda. We can’t say enough about their commitment to service. We were proud to support this mission and wish all the communities impacted a quick recovery. 4
Oakland USAR Task Force 4 has been now demobilized from the USAR Hurricane Ida Incident. All members of the Task Force are en route back to Oakland. Thank you to our members and the team for serving. #oaklandusar4
Here’s a quick interview with OFD Assistant Chief and CA Task Force 4 Representative Robert Lipp discussing the expertise of the technical rescue team deployed to Hurricane Ida and the mission ahead. #oaklandusar4
On Sunday, Aug 29, 2021, at the request of @fema , CA TF4 was activated to enhance search and rescue capacity in response to #HurricaneIda. A total of 46 sworn & civilian members were assigned to this mission and departed Oakland yesterday to arrive in Louisiana on Monday night.
Rest east brother.
It is with great sadness that we share news about the loss of our brother, Interim Assistant Chief Sean Laffan. We're shaken by this tragedy, and focused on restoring the emotional health of our department and caring for the needs of the Laffan family #OFD https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2020/11/17/oakland-assistant-fire-chief-sean-laffan-dies-at-42/
