She has some good days and unfortunately some tough days as well, but she is a fighter and hopes to move forward with additional cancer treatments in the weeks to come that will keep her with us for many more years.
When the Los Angeles Fire Department Firefighters at FS 98 in Pacoima learned of Roxanne, they decided to pay her a surprise visit to check up on her.
Firefighters stick together and look out not only for one another, but for all of the people in the communities that we serve.
From Seattle to Los Angeles - you are not alone Roxanne. We are with you and we hope to see you back out with your camera capturing the images of the men and women in the fire service doing what we do every single day.

Thank you, Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo, for your efforts to help protect our firefighters and our families. #ab2059 will allow firefighters throughout California to have more tools to help keep our communities safe from dangerous materials while also protecting our firefighters who risk their lives daily. Thank you! #IAFF#uflac#firefightersI’m proud to announce that AB 2059 has been signed into law which would require businesses that supply and move hazardous materials to make sales, shipping and transfer information available to the local Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs), that work alongside our firefighters, to identify large quantities of hazardous materials that are currently stored and moved around in ways that they can’t trace.
On May 16, 2020 a fire started at a building on Boyd Street in Downtown Los Angeles. That fire caused a large explosion due to an unknown collection of Butane gas at the property which environmental professionals had no way of knowing was present under the current system of reporting. As a result of that very large and sudden fire, eleven Los Angeles City Firefighters were injured.
Strengthening protections so all Californians can live in a healthy community has always been a critical part of my work.
#AB2059 will give additional tools to our firefighters and environmental professionals to find improperly stored materials before they become a threat to health and safety. ... See MoreSee Less
