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

The Los Santos County Fire Department (LSFD) is the fire department and paramedic agency 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. The fire department are a lot more responsive and professional then the predecessor's fire service, with firefighters responding to fires and extinguishing them with fire extinguishers and the fire trucks deck gun, or water cannon, firefighters once again have a larger purpose in the game.

Summoning the Fire Dept.

The Los Santos County Fire Department can easily be summoned by cell phone. To call a fire truck, select contacts on the player's phone, then select emergency services, and press "fire dept." When prompted by the 911 dispatcher. This can also be done by dialing 911 on the phone's dialpad. After that, a fire truck will arrive at the player's location a few minutes after the call is ended. The same can be done with Paramedics by selecting "Paramedics" on the menu, however there is no guarantee whether the responding Ambulance will be the LSFD or a Hospital.

Another interesting fact is while standing near the Davis fire station, the fire bell may be heard and a truck will leave out on a call. If followed you will see them arrive on scene and use the water cannon but there will be no flames.

Trivia

  • Firefighters and Paramedics will become hostile toward players if they see you stealing one of their rigs, usually resulting in a one star wanted level.
  • All the firefighters' helmets seems to be numbered 23 but the actual trucks are numbered 32.
  • When firefighters arrive on the scene none of them will be wearing fire helmets, which is a prohibited practice in real life.
  • Some of the firefighters' gear seems to be dark brown possibly from heavy use or possibly older gear still in service.
  • The LSFD has the FDLC emblem as well as a support ribbon on their fire apparatus possibly to show support to the FDLC/FDNY for September 11th.
  • When standing outside a firehouse the bell may sound and a firetruck will leave on a call, however if standing close to the station when the bell sounds the firefighters won't move at all.
