EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES (EMS) & TRAINING

EMS

Since 1978, the Lake Havasu City Fire Department has provided advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) service to the city and portions of southern Mohave County.  In 1996, the service was expanded to include lake coverage with the addition of a fireboat.  The department is currently capable of providing EMS service on the Colorado River from Interstate 40 to Parker Dam.

The typical fire department response to a medical emergency includes at least 1certified emergency paramedic (CEP) and 2 basic emergency medical technicians (EMT).  Transport to Havasu Regional Medical Center is provided by River Medical Ambulance Service.

TRAINING

Our training facility includes administrative offices, 2 classrooms, a training tower, and drill grounds. The training office coordinates department training and testing.  The mission of training is to provide realistic, on-going, and verifiable training.

PREVENTION & EDUCATION

FIRE PREVENTION

The Fire Prevention Division assists contractors and owners in obtaining the proper fire department permits, the plan submission process, plan review, and fire inspections as required by Lake Havasu City and the International Fire Code.

Lake Havasu City has adopted the 2012 International Fire Code and the accompanying National Fire Protection Association standards.  Please review our Fire Code FAQ.

FIRE SPRINKLER INFORMATION

In September 1994, the Lake Havasu City Council adopted a sprinkler ordinance that required the installation of a fire sprinkler system in new construction for the following occupancies:

  • All commercial structures regardless of size
  • All multi-family structures regardless of size (such as duplexes, triplexes, apartments, etc.)
  • Single family homes that are constructed where the slab of the main living area is 20 feet or more above the street level benchmark.
  • All new single family homes in planned residential developments.

Note: Although the city ordinance does not require a sprinkler system in all single family homes, fire sprinklers are highly recommended.
