For 92 years, the Los Angeles County Fire Department has been on a mission to keep you from harm’s way. Today, almost 4,000 sworn firefighters and lifeguards, and more than 700 professional staff, report for duty to protect your life, your property and your environmental health. We provide a highly advanced array of fire protection, life safety and other emergency services.
We train daily and are on standby around the clock from fire stations serving 58 cities in the county and all of its unincorporated communities. Our lifeguards also protect more than 70 million annual beachgoers along the county’s world-renowned coastline.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department is an “all-risk” organization, meaning that we can handle any emergency or large scale disaster through a variety of operations. We have the skills, tools and equipment to assist you in any emergency situation.
This past year, we have focused on the launch of our new Emergency Medical Services Bureau. While our paramedics and emergency medical technicians continue to provide skillful pre-hospital care, they are now using new technologies to completely modernize the way in which they deliver these services to you.
