LAFD Bringing Additional Resources to Valley Fire Stations

As a result of the anticipated increased winds and lowering relative humidity, the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) will pre-deploy additional resources beginning at 8:00 AM on Thursday October 2, 2014.

These additional firefighters will be placed at select Neighborhood Fire Stations serving high hazard brush areas, including Fire Station 84 in Woodland Hills, for an anticipated 24 hours, pending re-evaluated weather conditions.

Additional staffing includes: 11 Engines, 5 Brush Patrols (4x4 trucks able to access remote areas, equipped with water and hose), one EIT (Firefighter Staff Assistant) for each Battalion and Division Chief, two Metro Fire Dispatchers, one Air Operations Officer and one Helicopter Pilot.
