Julius Klein provides a variety of services to the citizens of Los Angeles County and the State of California. LACFD fire personnel provide excellent training, which prepares inmates to safely conduct wildland firefighting operations. They maintain a high level of safety, physical conditioning, wildland knowledge, and work production. Additionally, inmates have an opportunity to learn new skills in construction, woodworking, carpentry, electrical, general mechanics, welding, concrete and other general contractor type skills. The camp is an excellent environment for inmates to learn valuable life skills, including dedication, commitment and teamwork.
