On 1/21/23 at approximately 4:53 p.m., La Verne Fire was dispatched to the 2600 block of White Avenue.  Upon arrival, crews found a 53-year-old male who had collapsed during a basketball game and was in full cardiac arrest. LVPD arrived on scene prior and began lifesaving efforts (CPR and AED). On our arrival, LVFD took over those efforts and after several rounds of CPR, defibrillation and medication we were able to restore a heartbeat and circulation and transport him to the hospital.We applaud our partners at LVPD for their quick response and lifesaving efforts until we were able to arrive!

On 1/21/23 at approximately 10:30 am, La Verne Fire was dispatched to the 2000 block of Peyton Rd. Upon arrival, crews discovered a room and contents fire inside a single family residence and worked quickly to keep the damage to the kitchen where it began due to a faulty stove.Two occupants were assessed for smoke inhalation and declined transport to the hospital. The home was yellow-tagged and the occupants were offered Red Cross assistance but instead made their own lodging arrangements. Keeping the damage to the kitchen ultimately saved approximately $700,000 of the home’s value.#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #lvfd #laverne ... See MoreSee Less

HIGH WIND WARNING ⚠️ 🔥Strong winds compound wildfire danger. We therefore ask residents - especially those in fire-prone foothill and wildland communities - to use caution with flame, heat and spark producing equipment, including vehicles, barbecues and power tools.Those living near flammable vegetation should remain vigilant to the possibility of brush or structure fires, and report nearby smoke and flames immediately by calling 9-1-1.🛑With the possibility of downed power lines causing local power outages, drivers should use extreme caution when approaching darkened traffic signals. Whether driving on a main thoroughfare or side street, motorists should treat all non-functioning traffic signals as a four-way-stop.💥If you encounter downed wires, assume them to be energized and potentially lethal. Be careful that such wires haven't electrically charged puddles of water, chain link fences or other conductive sources - and report them to authorities.💨And finally, please take a moment now to secure household items, such as outdoor furniture, that could cause harm or damage if catapulted by a wind gust, and to remove flammable items from around your home.Report power outages to SCE at 1-800-611-1911@lavernepolicedepartment non-emergency number: 909-596-1913City of La Verne Public Works: 909-596-8741Stay safe, La Verne!#lavernefiredepartment #lavernefire #LVFD #Laverne #highwinds #highwindwarning #windevent ...
