Fire - Heartland Fire & Rescue

After a 10 Year Run with our current Engine 10, we will be replacing it with a brand new Pierce Engine this year. The current Engine 10, will be replacing Engine 210, and Engine 210 will be moving to reserve. This engine will be arriving at Station 10 in the end of April and after being outfitted with new 
equipment, will become active as the new Engine 10 in Early June.

The Lemon Grove Fire Department is now part of Heartland Fire & Rescue. On January 1, 2010, the cities of El Cajon, La Mesa, and Lemon Grove agreed to co-manage fire and emergency medical services in order to maintain high-quality services and provide cost-saving opportunities.  

Heartland Fire & Rescue offers combined resources of eight fire stations, nine engine companies, two truck companies, three paramedic transport units, and one BLS transport unit (Peak Hour Unit) to serve 180,000 residents. 

In addition to fire, rescue, and emergency medical services, Lemon Grove staff will continue to offer local fire prevention and public education services. Links are located on the left panel of this page.
