Nearly 120 square miles of homes, businesses, nuclear facilities and forest land fall under the jurisdiction of the Los Alamos Fire Department.
The 150-person department is charged with protecting the townsite and White Rock, which measure about 16 square miles, about 43 square miles that comprise Los Alamos National Laboratory as well as the initial response to 59 square miles of adjacent federal lands.
The U.S. Forest Service, Bandelier National Monument, General Services Administration, the Bureau of Land Management and the tribal lands of the Santa Clara and San Ildefonso Pueblos control the federal lands within Los Alamos County.
LAFD enlisted representative input from all of these entities in creating its strategic plan.
“We wanted to find out what their concerns were so we invited 35 people and ending up with 18 who joined in helping us develop what we call our ‘community driven strategic plan,’” Fire Chief Doug Tucker said. “This was part of our accreditation process … we wanted to have a working document … we’re going through our budget process right now so we’re utilizing the strategic plan as we go through this process.”
