Julius Klein provides a variety of services to the citizens of Los Angeles County and the State of California. LACO fire personnel provide excellent training, which prepares inmates to safely conduct wild land firefighting operations. They maintain a high level of safety, physical conditioning, wild land knowledge, and work production. In addition inmates have an opportunity to learn 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.
