UFLAC HEALTH & WELLNESS CONFLICT MANAGEMENT WEBINAR TONIGHT Tuesday, March 23rd 7:00-8:00 PM
Who hasn’t found themselves experiencing conflict from time to time, whether at home or at work? Take a moment and think back to the last conflict or two that you have been involved with… Was it with your spouse or significant other? Was it with your child or teenager? Or was it at work with your boss or a co-worker? As you know from your own experiences, conflict can be a very uncomfortable and challenging thing to go through.
Conflict Management is “the process of limiting or eliminating negative aspects of conflict while creating solutions to increase positive outcomes.”
United Firefighters of Los Angeles City, Local 112 and the Los Angeles Fire Department invite you and/or your significant other to join us for a webinar designed to help improve your understanding and increase your ability to navigate conflict in both your personal and professional life.
We will have a panel presentation led by subject matter expert Anita Avedian, MFT, along with Peer Support Team members Chief Nikki Brodowy and Captain Charles Boswell, EAP Director Nancy Mraz, and Director of Behavioral Health Dr. Steve Froehlich.
The Webinar will go live TONIGHT, March 23rd from 7:00-8:00 PM.
Please go to www.uflac.org to Register for the Webinar. If you have any questions, feel free to contact UFLAC Center for Health and Wellness Coordinator Maria Rendon by e-mail at [email protected] or phone (747) 200-6266. We look forward to connecting with you on March 23rd!
23 Years ago on March 23, 1998, this tragedy took place over the Hollywood Hills. We will never forgot A/O Michael Comb, Firefighter / Lead-Paramedic Eric F. Reiner, Firefighter / Paramedic Michael A. Butler, or 12 year old Norma Vides-Anaya who were tragically killed in an in-flight emergency while transporting to Children's Hospital.
Also seriously injured in the crash were Pilot II Steven Robinson (who sadly passed away in 2015 from ongoing complications due to these injuries) and Firefighter Dennis Silgen.
So sad. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏I know the feeling. My husband has lost 3 great friends flying. 💗💗💗💗
I met Steve, the pilot, when he was around 13. I used to windsurf with his dad. I got to work with Steve on occasion. He was a class act. I knew Mike and Erik very well. Two great guys. Still hard to believe after all this time.
Former UFLAC President wins landslide election for IAFF General Secretary-Treasurer
UFLAC Brothers and Sisters,
Former UFLAC President and current LAFD Captain II Frank Lima has won a historic election to serve as the next General Secretary-Treasurer for the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF). With his victory, brother Lima is the first LAFD / Local 112 member in history to win an election to serve as a principal officer with the IAFF.
In a crowded three-person field Frank Lima captured more than 70% of the vote, defeating a fire chief from the FDNY and the former Secretary-Treasurer of the Washington State Professional Firefighters.
Frank Lima served as the President of UFLAC Local 112 for four years from 2012 to 2016. For the past four years, he has served as the elected 10th District Vice President of the IAFF where he represented all professional firefighters in the states of California, Arizona, Hawaii and New Mexico in addition to the territory of Guam. In his role as the 10th District Vice President, Frank was instrumental in helping the LAFD receive nearly $26 million dollars in federal grants through the SAFER program and other FEMA related opportunities.
On Wednesday, March 10th, Frank was sworn in as the next General Secretary-Treasurer for the IAFF where he will be the number two principal officer in our international union representing more than 320,000 professional firefighters in the United States and Canada. At his swearing in ceremony Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, City Council President Nury Martinez, City Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, and Fire Chief Terrazas joined the UFLAC Executive Board to commemorate this very special occasion.
We wish our brother Frank Lima all the best and look forward to his continuing work to benefit the LAFD and Local 112 members.
