The Mammoth Lakes Fire Protection District Training Division oversees training for both new and current staff. Employees are trained in structural and wildland firefighting, emergency medical services, technical rescues, vehicle extrication, hazardous materials and environmental exposure incidents. Once a year the District also holds an accredited Firefighter Academy for Mammoth Lakes residents who are interested in becoming part-time and volunteer firefighters.
It is our mission to provide the highest quality training, instruction, and evaluation to our members. This is intended to prepare our department to serve our community in the most efficient and effective means possible, and to ensure personal safety as we deliver this service. More training videos to come.
In order to reduce the chances of a fire and to follow emergency protocol in the event of an emergency, it’s critical to be aware of your building’s occupancy ratings. Every building has a specific occupancy rating to control how many people are in a room or building at one time, and there are laws that must be followed to ensure safety.
