|Alamogordo Fire Department|
MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF
by Chief Jim LeClair
As the Alamogordo Fire Department closes out another year, I am honored to give the community the Annual Report for the Alamogordo Fire Department. Henry Ford once said “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself”. As I look back at the last twelve months, this quote is the epitome of the men and women of the Alamogordo Fire Department. Throughout 2016, no matter what the task, or the struggle, the Alamogordo Fire Department team came out on top due to team work, being on the same page and working together for one common goal.
Looking back one of the best examples would be the implementation of the ARFF (Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting) Team. The Alamogordo Fire Department now has a team of 7 qualified trained personnel that hold the IFSAC (International Fire Service Accreditation Congress) seal. The Alamogordo Fire Department is continually looking into the future making sure we stay abreast of the community’s growth.
Another huge accomplishment was the purchase of the new 75’ Ladder (Truck-2). This project was successful through state funds, grants and the City of Alamogordo capital equipment replacement program. This new truck will supplement the Alamogordo Fire Departments inventory, and will allow the city to now have a reserve Ladder as required.
As you read through the “Annual Report” you will find that the commitment of the men and women of the Alamogordo Fire Department is one of honesty, integrity, and compassion. As we move forward to another year, we remain focused on providing the citizens of Alamogordo the best fire protection attainable.
