On the Afghanistan Life Support Services (ALiSS) program, the DynCorp International U.S. Embassy Fire Protection team extends their capabilities well beyond just emergency services.
The U.S. Department of State Magazine recently published an article, Fighting More than Fires, detailing the many community services performed by the Embassy Kabul Fire Department. Whether reaching out to neighboring embassies to lend a life-saving hand or mentoring the Afghan Boy and Girl Scouts for Children’s Peace Day, the fire department provides a unique service to the mission in an extremely challenging operating environment.
“I’d like to thank the team for their great work,” said Robert Baldrate, ALiSS Fire Chief, U.S. Embassy Fire Protection. “What they do to serve the embassy and Camp Alvarado every day is impressive.”
DynCorp International (DI) supports multiple task orders on the Afghanistan Life Support Services (ALiSS) program, including food service, waste management, warehouse, transportation, vehicle maintenance and fire and emergency support. In 2017, the Department of State awarded DI Task Order 11 – Fire and Medical Emergency Support Services, with a base period of one year and four option years, for a total of $50.1 million. Under this task order, DI offers Emergency Support Services encompassing Fire and Medical Services at the Embassy Compound and Camp Alvarado.
