October 1 – As most of the country was sleeping, IAFF members from Clark County Local 1908, Henderson Local 1883 and Las Vegas Local 1285 were responding to the historic, tragic, mass shooting overnight in Las Vegas, Nevada, in which at least 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured.
While we are still gathering all of the details, the IAFF is already working to help our members. Assistant to the General President for Health, Safety & Medicine Pat Morrison is coordinating the full IAFF response, which will include mobilizing a Peer Support team and providing any other assistance our members and affiliates need as a result of this incredible event.
With so many members living in the area, including from North Las Vegas Local 1607, we know a number of off duty personnel and their families were at the event, with a number of injuries reported. We also had many more members from across the country who traveled to Vegas and were there when the shooting occurred. We have already heard from Los Angeles City Local 112, Los Angeles County Local 1014 and San Bernardino County Local 935 concerning members or their family members who were injured during the shooting.
We will release more details as they become available.
