Medina Lake VFD often works with other area or adjacent county Fire and EMS services for additional assistance with manpower or equipment – known commonly as Mutual Aid. Early morning March 15, 2016, Medina Lake VFD received a mutual aid request from neighboring Pipe Creek VFD to assist with a structure fire. Both Pipe Creek and Medina Lake firefighters worked together to extinguish and overhaul the structure fire. This was the second time in less than two weeks MLVFD and PCVFD had been called on to work cooperatively to fight a structure fire in our neighborhood . Each instance was a great example of the cooperation, commitment and community service both departments have in our community.
