The '''Los Santos County Fire Department (LSFD)''' is the fire department that protects the city of [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|Los Santos]], [[Los Santos County]], and [[Blaine County]] featured in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. The Los Santos City Fire Department is a subdivision of the Los Santos County Fire Department, as all fire apparatus bear both organizations' names. The two departments are based on the [[wp:Los Angeles City Fire Department|Los Angeles Fire Department]] (LAFD) and the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD), respectively.
  +
  +
In addition to providing fire protection, the LSFD also provides Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the aforementioned service areas. They also have a lifeguard division that may be found at Vespucci and Del Perro beaches.
  +
  +
==Description==
  +
The fire department is perhaps one of the largest, most profesional, and most responsive fire service in the whole series.
  +
  +
Unlike the [[Liberty City Fire Department (HD Universe)|fire department]] in GTA IV, Los Santos firefighters and paramedics are much more responsive. They arrive instantly at the scene when a fire is spotted (like in 3D era games) and now they also have arsenal in their fire-fighting weaponary in addition to the mounted cannon on fire trucks including fire extinguishers and axes (something that no previous fire department has used). In addition, fire crews will go as far as to shoot water from the engine's cannon even if there are no flames to douse, and firemen and paramedics will leave from fire stations and hospitals to go on runs. This therefore makes them the busiest fire department in all of the GTA series.
  +
  +
The LSFD also engages in activity that is otherwise prohibited in real life. When the fire department is dispatched, the player may notice that two firefighters will be riding the back of the fire truck. Besides, none will be wearing helmets, which is also a prohibited practice in real life.
  +
==Summoning the Fire Department==
  +
All three protagonists may easily call the fire department or an ambulance by cell phone. Emergency Services is a contact found in all cell phones and the player may select that and then select "Fire department" (or "Paramedics") when the 911 operator answers. While in the dialing list, it is also possible to press Square to open the handset keypad and manually dial 9-1-1 with the same result. The appropriate apparatus will respond to the player's location within minutes.
  +
==Equipment==
  +
=== Fire and Rescue Apparatus ===
  +
*[[Fire Truck|Fire Engines]]: Modified [[MTL]] Fire Engine with a Los Santos Fire Department, red with white & orange stripe color scheme. They can be found parked outside most fire stations and occassionally en route to incidents.
  +
*[[Ambulance|Rescue Ambulances]]: [[Brute]] manufactured [[Burrito]] based model with a Los Santos Fire Department "Paramedic", red with white & orange stripe color scheme. These may be found outside hospitals and sometimes seen rushing to calls or coming back to the parking lot following a call.
  +
*[[Air Ambulance]]: The LSFD also extends their services to the use of Air Ambulance helicopters, located on hospital helipads. These helicopters are marked red and white with "Ambulance" on the doors and tail of the chopper. They can be found on top of the [[Central Los Santos Medical Center]]. The player has to ascend several flights of stairs to get to the helipad where one or two should be parked.

**Interestingly, the Air Ambulance is never seen being used in GTA V.

LSFD firefighters wear all yellow or dark brown bunker gear with yellow & silver fluorescent strands resembling their real life counterparts in the LAFD. They also have a white nomex hood visible around their necks and wear grey or brown firefighting gloves. The fire helmets appear to be Phenix 1500's per LAFD and are either colored yellow, orange or white based on the firefighters rank: Yellow being firefighter; Orange being Captain; and White being a Battalion Chief or Commanding Officer. The firefighters helmets also sometimes have goggles on the front of the helmets.

==List of Fire Stations==

There are 7 Fire Stations in [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|Los Santos]], [[Los Santos County]], and [[Blaine County]] in [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. The 7 Fire Stations serve the following communities:
  +
*[[Davis Fire Station]]/South Los Santos Station - [[Davis]] (Los Santos City FD)
  +
*[[El Burro Heights Fire Station]] - [[El Burro Heights]] (Los Santos City FD)

==Paramedics==
  +
:''Main Article: [[Paramedics]], [[Hospitals]]''
  +
  +
The Los Santos Fire Department Paramedics (like the [[Los Santos Lifeguard]]) are a division of the LSFD. They can be seen standing outside their vehicles possibly taking a break or taking care of paperwork outside the hospital. Paramedics will stay there until they get a run where they will attempt to assist the patient at the point of illness or injury. If possible, the patient will climb aboard the ambulance be driven to the nearest hsopital.
  +
===Vehicles===
  +
: ''Main Ariticle: [[Ambulance]]''
  +
As one would expect, paramedics travel in pairs in ambulances. Three variants of ambulances exist in the game. The first is the LSFD ambulance (as described earlier in the article) which is the most dominant type. The others are [[Central Los Santos Medical Center|Los Santos Medical Center]] and Mission Row San Andreas. While the LSFD variant is obviously owned by the fire department, the other two are likely private companies. In fact, they could be based on Care Ambulance Service and McCormick Ambulance Service, two of Los Angeles County's biggest private EMS companies.
  +
===Uniform and Equipment===
  +
Paramedics wear either a dark navy blue, police-like uniform with the green medical patch (or blue medical star) symbol (LSFD), or a lighter shade of blue (hospital medics) on each shoulder. Medics also wear a belt which contain most likely more medical tools and supplies such as gauze, bandages, and surgical scissors/knives. They also wear a name tag and carry a stethoscope around their neck while wearing latex gloves due to health reasons and sanitation when performing their duties. Sometimes they are seen wearing a hat or glasses.

FIRE DEPARTMENT

Common name: Los Santos Fire Department
Abbreviation: LSFD
Appearance(s): Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto Online

The Los Santos County Fire Department (LSFD) is the fire department that protects the city of Los Santos, Los Santos County, and Blaine County featured in Grand Theft Auto V. The Los Santos City Fire Department is a subdivision of the Los Santos County Fire Department, as all fire apparatus bear both organizations' names. The two departments are based on the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) and the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD), respectively.

In addition to providing fire protection, the LSFD also provides Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the aforementioned service areas. They also have a lifeguard division that may be found at Vespucci and Del Perro beaches.

DescriptionEdit

The fire department is perhaps one of the largest, most profesional, and most responsive fire service in the whole series.

Unlike the fire department in GTA IV, Los Santos firefighters and paramedics are much more responsive. They arrive instantly at the scene when a fire is spotted (like in 3D era games) and now they also have arsenal in their fire-fighting weaponary in addition to the mounted cannon on fire trucks including fire extinguishers and axes (something that no previous fire department has used). In addition, fire crews will go as far as to shoot water from the engine's cannon even if there are no flames to douse, and firemen and paramedics will leave from fire stations and hospitals to go on runs. This therefore makes them the busiest fire department in all of the GTA series.

The LSFD also engages in activity that is otherwise prohibited in real life. When the fire department is dispatched, the player may notice that two firefighters will be riding the back of the fire truck. Besides, none will be wearing helmets, which is also a prohibited practice in real life.
