Los Angeles County Fire Department
The Los Angeles County Fire Department serves 58 incorporated and all unincorporated cities in the county, as well as one city in Orange County.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department was created in 1992, after a series of consolidations and jurisdictional changes beginning in the 1920's. Over the course of its storied history, the department has spearheaded crucial innovations, such as designing the 9-1-1 and paramedic systems in the 1970's. Today, the Los Angeles County Fire Department is made up of nearly 6,000 firefighters, paramedics, lifeguards, and other emergency personnel who provide fire and life safety services for more than 2,300 square miles of land, 1.2 million housing units, and 4 million residents. In 2019 alone, the department responded to more than 333,000 emergency medical situations. In addition to emergency-response services, the Los Angeles County Fire Department operates fire prevention and educational programs, such as the Ready! Set! Go! wildfire action plan, to prepare families and individuals to respond to emergency situations.
