Each LFR fire engine medic vehicle is fully equipped for advanced life support capabilities.
LFR’s Prevention Division manages code review and revision, plan review, code enforcement, and fire/arson investigations.
The Communications Center is the "first" first responder on fire and medical emergencies. This team provides assistance and information to citizens, both to emergency 911 calls and to routine fire request calls, 24 hours daily. If needed, communications specialists assist with CPR and rescue breathing instructions over the phone until paramedic/fire personnel arrive.
The life safety educator provides programs for all age groups. Special events, such as station tours, open houses, and ice cream socials provide opportunities to teach in an entertaining yet meaningful format. Educational programs include: Juvenile fire-setter program; Life Safety Education presentations, Bike helmet safety, characterization team, and Kids Mini Fire Academy.
