After 10 months of discussion, @lavernefiredepartment and @lacountyfd have finalized a new, mutually beneficial auto and mutual aid agreement to improve response times around La Verne and surrounding areas. This partnership is effective December 1, 2022.With this agreement, LVFD has the bandwidth to support more complex, critical situations that fire departments often face. Under Chief Nigg’s leadership, LVFD has enhanced its capacity to offer equitable, reciprocating responses into the contiguous LACFD contract cities around La Verne. The updated agreement includes simultaneous dispatch, via fire station order, meaning the closest unit to emergencies may respond, regardless of agency affiliation.“This is the first time in LVFD history that a comprehensive, all-encompassing auto-aid agreement is being implemented. To some extent, our two agencies have even worked diligently to implement unprecedented practices, new to the entire LA operational area,” said Chief Chris Nigg. “I would like to thank LA County Fire for their continued collaboration and professionalism in developing an innovative plan to better the broader eastern LA County community .” Learn more at the link in our bio. ...

At approximately 5:34 p.m. this evening, La Verne firefighters responded to a reported structure fire in the 1800 block of Baseline Rd. Upon arrival, they found a well-involved residential structure fire. With aid from @lacountyfd, crews were able to hold the fire to the garage and attic, with no fire damage to the house. All occupants had exited the home before crews arrived and no injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is being investigated.#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #LVFD #laverne #structurefire ...

Congratulations to our program’s first female ambulance operator, Jordan Tapia, for being hired as a firefighter with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department! 👩🏼‍🚒The Ambulance Operator program has proven to be an invaluable tool for internal recruitment, as well as individual career growth for aspiring Firefighters. We’ve been fortunate to attract top notch Ambulance Operators which we hope to grow into LVFD Firefighters as opportunities arise. And as much as we’re excited for our partner agencies to gain such great new Firefighters, we’re even more thrilled and proud to see our A/O’s achieve their dreams!#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #lvfd #laverne #ambulanceoperator #ambulanceoperatorprogram #firefighter #newfirefighter ...
