Contact Info

The Operations Division provides and maintains, through a force of trained and qualified personnel, a state of readiness necessary to cope with real and potential emergency incidents affecting the citizens and visitors of Los Alamos County.

Our fire suppression force is currently comprised of three shifts, each under the direction and leadership of a Duty Battalion Chief. The Deputy Chief, in conjunction with the three Duty Battalion Chiefs, works to ensure that our crews are ready to respond to a variety of incidents at a moment's notice.

Included in the preparation of response crews is adequate training, appropriate equipment and the availability of the resources required to meet our ever-changing response environment.

The LAFD currently operates out of five stations which are managed by a Company Officer.
