Citizen Services

In addition to providing fire and emergency services, we also serve our community by providing the following:

The Vecino Program

Vecino is the Spanish word for a neighbor, and that’s what the Las Cruces Fire Department (LCFD) strives to be, a good neighbor. The Vecino Program targets our local senior residents who are at least 60 years of age and/or are homebound because of a medical disability and have a non-existent or insufficient local support system. Firefighters call our Vecinos daily to check on their welfare. The program currently serves more than 35 residents with phone calls typically made between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. each day by our firefighters. This year approximately 13,000 calls were made to our Vecinos.

For more information regarding the Vecino Program please contact us at 575-528-3473.
