Pursuant to a Mutual Aid Request, the Los Angeles Fire Department has assigned one Strike Team of firefighters: Strike Team 1001, comprised of...
• LAFD Engine 10 - from Downtown
• LAFD Engine 27 - from Hollywood
• LAFD Engine 60 - from North Hollywood
• LAFD Engine 61 - from Fairfax District
• LAFD Engine 66 - from Chesterfield Square
• LAFD Battalion 5 - from Hollywood
...to assist CAL FIRE and allied agencies in their battle against a brush fire in Siskiyou County near Weed, California, approximately 535 miles northwest of our City.
These 22 personnel from the Los Angeles Fire Department were dispatched to the "Boles Fire" wildfire incident in accordance with the California Fire Service and Rescue Emergency Mutual Aid Plan. The plan ensures resources for jurisdictions when their own assets are committed or insufficient for an emergency incident.
The City of Los Angeles remains protected by the use of additional staff and reserve apparatus to cover foreseeable local needs.
The LAFD asks motorists to remain watchful for these and other convoys of emergency apparatus, and to provide the space necessary for them to safely maneuver and operate on local roads and highways.
Pursuant to protocol, official public and media information regarding this wildfire, including the actions of assigned LAFD personnel, will be provided by CAL FIRE, which maintains jurisdictional authority where the fire is burning. Additional details may be posted for public view here:
