Mobile Integrated Health
The purpose of Mobile Integrated Health program is to provide referrals, visitations and treatment services to high utilizers of the 911 system and community members with limited access to health/social services so they can access appropriate health/social resources and reduce their use of the 911 system.
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.
