After over a decade of research conducted by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI), proved that a simple behavioral change, closing the door, could have potentially life-saving impact during a fire. Spreading the home fire safety message, has become an essential part of advancing the UL mission, working for a safer world. Visit www.closeyourdoor.org for more information.

All employees and patrons were out of the building and everyone went home safe.
LSFD recently placed in-service four new BLS fast cars to improve response during Peak Time operations. These vehicles are used to respond in advance of the Paramedic ambulance to insure our standard of cover for EMS emergencies. These vehicles are also staffed by some of our most senior paramedics that allows for EMS supervision of critical care patients .
