Wildland Division

The Los Alamos County Fire Department acknowledges that wildland is a part of the landscape of Los Alamos. We are surrounded by forest and it is not possible to exclude fire in the future.  However, with the proper preparation, prevention, public education, training and equipment, wildfire risk and hazard can be mitigated.  Los Alamos County Fire Department has carefully investigated all of its priorities and has determined that the preceding objectives will best allow this agency to fulfill its mission of protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public and reducing the loss of lives, property while providing the safest situation possible for LAFD firefighters.
