Last week, Kindergarten and 1st grade classes from Oak Mesa Elementary came to visit us at Fire Station 2. They learned about the difference between a fire engine vs a fire truck, safety equipment, watched one of their teachers dress up in full firefighter turnouts, and got to tour the ambulance! Our firefighters also spoke to the children, teachers, and parents about the importance of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, planning an escape route in case of a fire, and other safety tips if there is ever a fire emergency in their home.We enjoy educating the youth in our community and playing a vital role in their understanding of fire safety, risk reduction and how to be prepared!#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #lvfd #lavernefd ...

On Saturday, September 23, La Verne Fire, @lavernepolicedepartment, and LV CERT teamed up with staff and volunteers from @redcrossla to install free smoke alarms, through the American Red Cross Sound the Alarm program. Focused on the Twin Oaks Mobile Home Park, coupled with a small handful of additional community-wide appointments made, the team of 25 installed 162 smoke alarms, educated 87 residents on emergency preparedness, and made 54 homes safer in La Verne! Thank you to @redcrossla for the coordination and providing the necessary supplies to help make residents of La Verne prepared, safer, and resilient!#lvfd #laverne #lavernefire #lavernefiredepartment ...

This past week, Chief Nigg was honored to attend the League of California Cities Annual Conference & Expo, alongside City Manager Ken Domer and Councilmember Wendy Lau. As the largest organization advocating on behalf of all California Cities at the state and Federal levels, Cal Cities provides our loudest voice during the most critical of issues. This 3-day long event offers numerous opportunities for collaborative networking, informational seminars, and targeted discussion on public safety, infrastructure, homelessness, workforce equity, and so on. The fire service faces many ongoing legislative challenges relative to EMS deployment, wild land urban interface requirements, community homeowner insurance challenges, the fentanyl crisis, cost recovery, and beyond. As the newly elected Vice President of the Cal Cities Fire Chiefs, Chief Nigg is eager to represent La Verne Fire and, all departments across the state, who simply aspire to provide the highest performing and most efficient service to our communities.Second photo: (pictured left to right) Alex Hamilton - Oxnard Fire Chief, Cal Cities Past President, Adam Loeser - Fullerton Fire Chief, Cal Cities Fire Chiefs President, Dan Stefano - Costa Mesa Fire Chief, Cal Cities Fire Chiefs Director, Chris Nigg, La Verne Fire Chief - Cal Cities Fire Chiefs Vice President ...
