On June 9th, Local 891 member, Engineer / Paramedic John Ruppert of the San Bernardino City Fire Department - loving father, devoted husband, son, brother, and friend - was taken from our lives in a tragic accident while doing what he loved most: vacationing with his family. He now watches over the family he left behind with his Lord Jesus Christ.
On behalf of his wife, Kristen, his seven-year-old son, Jackson, his four-year-old daughter, Keira, we have set up this account to help with expenses during this time of incredible sadness and need, and to assist the family in the future. Please keep 'Johnny' and his family in your prayers.
100% of donations will be dedicated to the family.
ATTENTION SAN BERNARDINO CITY PROFESSIONAL FIREFIGHTER FOLLOWERS:
San Bernardino County Fire assumed fire protection services in the city of San Bernardino on July 1, 2016. On that same date, the Members/Firefighters of San Bernardino City Professional Firefighters Local 891 became members of San Bernardino County Professional Firefighters Local 935.
Due to this undertaking, the San Bernardino City Professional Firefighters UNION page will only continue as a historical site for the time being because of links to information about Johnny Ruppert and some of the funding sites for his family. Please keep Johnny and all those previous SBFD Professional Firefighters that have passed away over the years in your thoughts and prayers. They will not be forgotten.

PRESS RELEASE REGARDING COUNTY FIRE ANNEXATION
SAN BERNARDINO CITY PROFESSIONAL FIREFIGHTERS
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Jeff English

Firefighters Support Global Agreement
to Increase Fire and Paramedic Services for San Bernardino Residents
- The members of the San Bernardino City Professional Firefighters Local 891
have voted to support a Global Agreement with the City of San Bernardino.
Agreement is a positive step that will improve emergency response times and
increase fire protection and paramedic services for San Bernardino residents,"
stated Firefighters President Jeff
English. "Ensuring better public safety
has always been the most important consideration for City Firefighters."
Agreement also provides a fair resolution to the concerns of Local 891 members
by redressing inappropriate past financial actions by the City," continued
"As part of our
Global Agreement with the City, San Bernardino City Firefighters have agreed to
support the Annexation to County Fire.
The San Bernardino County Fire Department is a professional organization
capable of providing the highest level of fire protection and emergency
services to our community. We took this
step because of our very real concerns about the dangerously inadequate fire
suppression levels and paramedic response currently available to the residents
of San Bernardino. The County Annexation Plan will increase and improve these
vital public safety protections," stated English.
Annexation will restore fire fighting companies and resources that have been
significantly reduced because of the City's bankruptcy status," said
English. "It will also relieve
firefighters and their families of the unfair burden of working excessive overtime
caused by the City's unwillingness to fully staff our San Bernardino City Fire
Firefighters want to express our heartfelt appreciation for the support we have
received from residents throughout San Bernardino. We know that many residents wanted to
maintain our 137-year old City Fire Department.
However, the safety of the public and our members is our highest
priority. We believe that the Global
Agreement and County Annexation Plan will result in greater protection and a
safer community for everyone," concluded English.
