California Wildfires Draws Local Response

Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department sends firefighters to help out with California wildfires.

Here's information provided by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department:

The Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department (LPFD) sent engines out to two fires over the weekend as part of local agency strike teams. 

The first engine, OES 8235 (see attached picture), responded Saturday morning as part of an OES Strike Team that was deployed to the Chips Fire in Plumas County. This stubborn fire has been burning in an area off of Highway 70 since July 29. 

The second engine, E392, was deployed early Monday morning to the Wye Fire in Lake County as part of an Alameda County strike team for initial response.

Additionally, an LPFD Captain who is a Fire Behavior Analyst on a Federal Type I team is currently deployed at the Redding Fire in Shasta County. 

Each engine is deployed with four people; a Captain, Engineer, Firefighter/Paramedic, and Firefighter. The Type III engines are a versatile apparatus that can be used for both fire attack and structure protection. Each strike team of five engines is committed for up to seven days, at which time our engine crews may be replaced with fresh personnel from LPFD.

Glad we can help out. Hope others never have to "return the favor", but good to know there is a viable mutual support system in place.
