As the 2022 fire season is upon us, it is critical for our Firefighters to keep their skills sharp and ensure operational readiness. Training opportunities with live fire are rare, so during the early morning hours we took advantage of the perfect conditions to do so. We’re proud to annually partner with the University of La Verne, who again provided the 6 acres in need of fuel management for our training needs. Thank you to our Region 1 & 6 partners who took part alongside us: @glendalefireca @coltonfiredept @monrovia_fire_rescue @u.s.forestservice @rancho_cucamonga_fire_district @westcovinafire @lacountyfd @south_pasadena_firefighters @mrcafiredivision#livefiretraining #firetraining #fireseason #lavernefire #lavernefiredepartment #lvfd ...

This morning your La Verne Firefighters and other partnering agencies are conducting live fire training in the area of Arrow and Wheeler. There will be a heavy fire department presence in the area and may be smoke visible between the hours of 9 AM and 12 PM. These trainings are critical to our preparedness for the upcoming fire season, while also managing potentially hazardous fuel loads in the City. Area weather forecasts indicate favorable conditions, however we will continuously monitor the real time environment and adjust accordingly. We thank the University of La Verne for their ongoing partnership and access to their property for our training needs. For any concerns, please contact La Verne Fire Administration at 909-596-5991.#SmokeAdvisory #firetraining #LVFD #lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire ... See MoreSee Less
