Los Angeles Fire Department Exercise at Wilshire/La Brea Station


On Saturday, April 27 from 7am to 2pm, the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) group will hold a training drill at the South La Brea Yard. USAR will practice rescues of injured workers and fire-fighting techniques in the tunnels and the Wilshire/La Brea Station. This simulation provides USAR a chance to work in the tunnels and station before an actual emergency.

Los Angeles Fire Department equipment and vehicles will be parked on Wilshire Bl and La Brea Ave. during this exercise.
