Message from the Chief

Fire Chief: Christopher Nigg

Welcome to the La Verne Fire Department website. We hope you find this site helpful and informative. The mission of the La Verne Fire Department is to preserve life, property, and the environment of the City of La Verne in a safe, efficient, and cost effective manner. Our members place high value on Integrity, Professionalism, Dedication, and Community. This site is intended to provide you with answers to the most frequently asked questions and give you information about our organization and how we serve the community.

The men and women of the La Verne Fire Department are dedicated to providing superior service to the residents, visitors, and businesses in La Verne. Fire suppression is only one of our responsibilities. Today’s fire service requires an “all-risk” approach to emergency management. Our staff members continually train and prepare for fires, traumatic injuries/accidents, natural and man-made disasters, and emergency medical incidents to keep us ready to respond to the unexpected. Our duties include business fire safety inspections to prevent fires, and community education to improve knowledge of fire safe practices in the home. We maintain state of the art medical equipment and training that meets, and often exceeds, Los Angeles County and State of California requirements for paramedic response. We participate in regional and national multi-agency incident management teams that have responded to large wildfires, natural disasters, and terrorist events across the United States. These opportunities provide our members with the experience, skills, and abilities that improve our capabilities when responding to incidents in and around the city of La Verne. Thank you for visiting our web site!
