New Mutual Aid Agreement. (2/2/13)
The Lego Angeles Fire Department has contracted a Mutual Aid Agreement with the Lego TownShip Fire Department. In the event of the LTFD requiring Mutual Aid, Engine 7 will be toned out and paired with a ladder to Station 8 of Lego TownShip. In the event of the LAFD requiring Mutual Aid, Engines 3, 8, and Ladder 4 of the Lego TownShip Fire Department would respond with a Battalion Chief in the event that two of those apparatus are called. A Rescue Company or Hazardous Materials Company can be toned by LTFD for the event they are needed in Lego Angeles.
TOWER LADDER NO. 1. (6/17/13)

All newer and some older pieces of apparatus in the battalion will be repainted to that scheme.

We estimate that it will take up to two days for the rig to be finished. After that, our new Sutphen Quint is next, followed by numerous other units from the department.

As the St. Lego Fire Department's Chief has ended all apparatus sales (effective 4/1/14), the Lego Angeles City Fire Department has ordered one last order, after three years of receiving 11 pieces of custom apparatus. The department has spent over $1,000.00 in sales with the St. Lego FD. The fleet order consists of two engines that will serve as Engines 3 and 4, a Heavy Rescue to serve as Rescue 1, a Brush Engine that will serve as Patrol 2, a Tractor Drawn Aerial ladder that will serve as Truck 3, and a Small Rescue to serve as Lifeguard 3. The Chief of The Department would like to thank Thomas Duggan and the St. Lego Fire Department for their service and sales over the years.

All of the department's apparatus will soon be refurbished and completed with new graphics. Expect to see a few new pieces of apparatus, a new station, and more updates later.
