Your La Verne Firefighters participated in the Stairclimb for Los Angeles today. They climbed 75 flights (1,664 steps) straight up at the US Bank Tower in full firefighting gear. At 1,005 feet, the US Bank Tower is home to the tallest stairwell west of the Mississippi.Fire departments from all over Southern California and beyond take part as a way to give back to the community, build camaraderie and challenge themselves to better prepare for things they may have to face on the job. We had 6 members compete today, with one coming in 10th overall!#lavernefiredepartment lavernefire #LVFD #laverne #firefighter #stairclimb #stairclimbforlosangeles ... See MoreSee Less

It is important to recognize those coming into our ranks for the first time, those who have chosen to become leaders in rank, and those who have put LVFD before their own needs, sacrificing additional time and energy for this community.It was a beautiful afternoon and we look forward to doing it again each year!#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #LVFD #laverne #NewHires #promotions #OutstandingService #recognitionevent ...

MUTUAL AID UPDATE:Your La Verne Firefighters are heading home! After a nearly two-week deployment, strike team XLB 1275C has been demobilized from the Mountain Fire and will slowly make their way back to Southern California. Their travels began on the Gulch Fire in the Angeles National Forest, before heading to the Route Fire in Castaic. The Mill Fire in Siskyou County began to threaten lives and property and they were immediately requested to respond to Northern California to assist. Ultimately they completed their tour on the nearby Mountain Fire. With wildfires threatening our state more so now than ever before, we couldn’t be more proud to play our part in the California master mutual aid system. We look forward to seeing them home soon. ❤️#mutualaid #mutualaidupdate #lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #lvfd ... See MoreSee Less
