Lathrop-Manteca Fire Protection District was established in 1936 to provide fire protection for the township of Lathrop, rural Lathrop and rural Manteca. The District staffs four strategically located fire stations with career personnel, as well as volunteer firefighters.

The District offers the following community outreach services:

  • Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is centered around an all-risk, all-hazard training course. The LMFD sponsored course is delivered in a three (3) Saturday format. Each Saturday is approximately 8 hours of instruction and participation. This valuable course is designed to help you protect yourself, your family, your neighbors and your neighborhood in an emergency situation.
  • Hands Only CPR
  • Fire Station Tours: guided tours of a fire station are available to any member of the community free of charge. Whether a family outing or a cub scout meeting, touring a fire station can be a great experience! To schedule a tour please call the station you wish to tour, and speak with the on-duty Fire Captain.
  • Used Oil Collection: the Fire District has partnered with San Joaquin County, and the State of California to allow local residents the ability to drop off used oil and filters. The collection site was entirely paid for by grant/program funds from the State.
  • R.O.P: The Regional Occupational Program offers a wide variety of career engagement courses for high school students. These courses are intended for students to examine the needed career skills for a general career path. Under this program high school students have the ability to work alongside firefighters in a non-emergency provider role. Students are expected to examine career paths in the fire service and participate with non-emergency work-related activities.
  • Flag Retirement: in conjunction with local organizations the District collects worn, faded and otherwise unserviceable flags, and ensures their proper retirement according to law. Flags can be dropped off during normal business hours at any of the District's Fire Station.
  • Fire Ops 101: Fire Ops 101 is an education experience for individuals to learn more about the level of training, personnel, and equipment needed to perform the job of a firefighter.
  • Safe Surrender Site: the Safely Surrendered Baby Law allows a person with legal custody or a parent who is unable or unwilling to care for an infant 72 hours of age or younger, to confidentially surrender the infant to any hospital emergency room or designated fire station. All Lathrop Manteca Fire District fire stations are safe surrender sites. The purpose of this law is to protect infants from abandonment and also to protect the parents from arrest or prosecution for abandonment, as long as there has been no abuse or neglect.
  • Junior Fire Academy: the LMFD is looking for young individuals in the community that would like to learn about the Fire Service. The information and training received during this academy will help these student prepare for a future career in the fire service as well as train them on how to prepare for and respond to emergency events in the community.
  • Every 15 Minutes (E-15): the LMFD is a proud participant in this unique program that shares with adolescents the consequences of driving under the influence of controlled substances - be it alcohol, drugs, or even distracted driving.
