In this new intensive program they will learn the skills necessary to be safe and successful in their fire and rescue service careers. Please join us in wishing best of luck to: Alexis, Sean, Giselle, Brandon and Garrett as they all start their Firefighter 1 training.

Always training to serve our community.

Even with all of our other commitments, and events, going on these last few days our members found time to do some necessary and critical response training.

On Sunday, August 11th members of LOWVFD and County of Orange Fire & EMS (COFEMS) got together to mutually work on driver training, pump operations, tanker operations, and setting up for rural water supply.

For those that may not be familiar with this type of training it is crucial to our response operations. There are many parts of the county that are not hydrant accessible and thus require a well trained team to be able to quickly deploy a water source in order to effectively respond to a residential or structure fire. Great job by our crews from LOWVFD and COFEMS.

We receive a lot of support from our community and in many different formats, whether it be financial, emotional or other. Volunteerism is down overall across the nation and LOWFR29 is not immune to the challenges. We reached out to Meadows Farms Golf Course for assistance and they more than answered our request for support. Meadows Farms is helping us to retain and attract members by providing two free golf passes per month for each of our volunteers.

Reach out to us on Facebook to find out how you can become a member with our company, serve our community, earn golf passes and play on a round on the course that is “Home to longest hole in the USA!”

Thank you Meadows Farms Golf Course, this is truly an awesome and motivating donation.
