Live Fire Training
5/1/2015  Laguna Beach Firefighters have been conducting “Live Fire Training” in Huntington Beach this past month. As Firefighters do not get the opportunity to train often in live fire scenarios, each member will go through one half-day of training at a “burn tower.” Training topics will include search and rescue procedures, live fire attack, ventilation, nozzle techniques, and the Incident Command System. Firefighters will also get to use specialty equipment in a realistic environment, including personal protective equipment, thermal imaging cameras, self-contained breathing apparatus, ladders and fire hose. The goal of this training is to ensure our Firefighters are ready to safely and effectively respond to a structure fire in our community.

Goat Update
5/1/2015  The goats are back in town and are currently working on the fuel modification zone in Bluebird Canyon. The City has over 100 goats in this area to keep fuel levels down to slow the spread of a possible wildfire. As the State is entering its fourth year of drought conditions, most of the light flashy fuels have died. Residents are encouraged to participate in the “Ready! Set! Go!” program to ensure their home and property could withstand a wildfire.
