Cooperative Fire Protection Agreement The "Amador Plan" Goes Into Effect

Cooperative Fire Protection Agreement The "Amador Plan" Goes Into Effect 

With the 2018 fire season on the horizon, the Lockwood Fire Protection District has entered into a cooperative fire protection agreement with Cal Fire Amador El Dorado unit. Known as the “Amador Plan”, under this agreement, Cal Fire will staff a fire engine 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year around  to serve the residents and the surrounding areas of the Lockwood Fire Protection District with emergency response to medical aides, traffic accidents, structure fires, hazardous materials spills and wildland fires. The Amador Plan is a cost sharing agreement in which Lockwood Fire Protection District pays a portion of the personnel costs which will keep, in this case, Dew Drop Station 10 staffed during the winter months when Cal Fire might normally down staff due to decreased threat of wildfires. The agreement is mutually beneficial as it provides additional staffing in the winter months allowing Cal Fire to continue working on fuel reduction and other fire prevention projects in the Lockwood Fire Protection District and surrounding areas.
