Thank you to all the fire and rescue personnel!

Have you guys ever thought not to publicized our dog into this because we don't need a constant reminder of you guys failing to do your guys job when our dog was still crying and barking in the fire begging someone to help him but you don't even try to help the people who lost everything because all of the fire department took there time to get there and when asked to save our baby from the burning house you ask what breed he was who the fuck does that don't even attempt to save him when he was still alive trying to get out! You all failed

Thank you all for your dedication, service and support of our children. I know they enjoyed, and I appreciate it and all of you!

Guardians of the East, Protecters of the West, Savors of the North.. what a time to be alive.

We extend our sympathy and condolences to the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office, the Syracuse City Police Department, and the families of the fallen officers during this difficult time.TWO LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY:

On Sunday, April 14th, 2024, at about 7:07 p.m., Syracuse Police Officers encountered a suspicious vehicle in the area of Emerson Avenue and Hamilton Street. Police officers attempted to stop the vehicle, however, the driver refused to stop and fled the area. The officers lost sight of the vehicle but were able to record the license plate information.

Officers checked the vehicle registration and determined the registered owner resides on Darien Drive, in Liverpool, New York.

Syracuse Police responded to the address, along with members of the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office. The vehicle was found to be parked at a residence on Darien Drive.

Shortly after arrival, the police officers and sheriff’s deputies were encountered by an armed male and an exchange of gunfire followed.

One Syracuse Police Officer and one Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputy were struck by gunfire. The armed suspect was also shot.

Both law enforcement officers were transported to Upstate University Hospital where life saving measures were conducted. The Syracuse Police Officer and the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputy succumbed to their injuries.

The suspect was also transported to University Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the two law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, as well as with their brothers and sisters in law enforcement who are suffering in the wake of this tragedy.

We thank the community for their outpouring of support.

The Lacona Fire Department had 10 members standby at the station yesterday from 11:00 to 19:00 due to the massive increase of people in the area for the eclipse.

During this time members were able to conduct training on pump operations, radio procedures, hose line operations, and dressing hydrants. Multiple trucks were washed as well.

Members were also able to kick back, relax and have some burgers for lunch, play some cornhole, watch the eclipse, and participated in foot races for some great laughs.
