Our Mission


Like emergency communications, Lyons Prepared is also evolving. The volunteer group is transitioning to be a part of the LFPD Auxiliary to provide support as needed. And volunteers will continue to maintain the radio network. This is especially useful for areas in the Fire District where communications are "spotty" due to our mountainous terrain. The LFPD is seeking volunteers to participate in the Auxiliary for a variety of community-oriented education, communication, and outreach initiatives in support of the Fire District's mission. Interested citizens can apply to volunteer with the Auxiliary.
