The job wasn't done until they replaced their smoke detector battery. #couldsaveyourlife
Your phone may "fall back" by itself but your smoke detector needs you to put in a new battery. #couldsaveyourlife

Daylight Saving Time starts tonight at 0200. If you change your clock correctly you will be on time. When you change your smoke detector battery you could save your family's life. Which one will you change first?
Our deepest condolences and prayers go out to the family and friends of Whittier Police Department Officer Keith Wayne Boyer. #EOW 02/20/17, Rest In Peace brother. #L4757
Chief Norman shared some sad news this morning. Rest in peace Chief Sunderland. Colleagues, It is with a heavy heart that I pass along the following information. Our first Tulare County Fire Chief Steve Sunderland passed away suddenly last night at his home in Dinuba. Chief Sunderland served as our Chief from 2006 to 2011 after a distinguished career with CAL Fire. During his retirement he was very active in the community and enjoyed golfing on a very frequent basis. His loss in the fire service community will leave a huge void. Funeral arrangements are pending and I will pass along service information in the very near future. Please keep the Sunderland Family in your thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Charlie Norman, Fire Chief Tulare County Fire Department

The members of the IAFF Local 4757 offer our deepest sympathy to the family of Sgt. Mike Yandell, who was killed in an off-duty, single vehicle crash in Kings County just before midnight Saturday, in the area of Houston and 7th avenues. The cause of the accident is currently under investigation by the California Highway Patrol. This is a very difficult time for the Sheriff’s Office, said Sheriff Boudreaux. The Yandell family has a long history with the department as his father, Darrel Yandell, is a retired Lieutenant. “We are hurting with the loss of our friend,” Sheriff Boudreaux said. Sgt. Yandell was a caring and passionate man who loved the Sheriff’s office. “He was a personal friend of mine which makes this time equally difficult for me and his family,” he said. “I ask for the prayers of the community and law enforcement family for the Yandell family during this difficult time.” Sgt. Yandell touched many lives through his presidency of the Tulare County Deputy Sheriff’s Association. As part of his duties, he made sure families were cared for during times of tragedy. “Now we must all return his work by supporting and caring for his family the way he would have taken care of ours,” Sheriff Boudreaux said. He is survived by his wife and two children. Sgt. Yandell was hired at the Sheriff's Office in 2000. First, he worked in the Main Jail, then Headquarters Patrol, Gang Violence Suppression Unit, and Sheriff’s Tactical Enforcement Personnel (STEP). He had specialized training in SWAT, agricultural crimes, narcotics and asset forfeiture. He was promoted to Sergeant in 2012 and was assigned to the Sheriff’s Pixley Substation. His most recent assignment was with the Sheriff's Agricultural Crimes Unit beginning a year ago. Sgt. Yandell served on the board of the Tulare County Deputy Sheriff’s Association for nearly 12 years and was named president in 2013. As president, he worked tirelessly helping the men and women of the association, said Sgt. Joe Torres, vice president. “He sacrificed hundreds of hours of his personal time for the benefit of its members,” he said.
Members of Tulare County IAFF Local 4757 are participating in the annual Honor Guard Academy. Other agencies participating are the Tulare County Sheriffs Department and the Visalia Police Department.
