Remembering LAPD Deputy Chief Kenneth Garner

2009 and the LAFD Museum & Memorial Remembering Firefighter Brent Lovrien
The Los Angeles Police Department and indeed the City of Los Angeles is mourning the loss of Deputy Chief Kenneth Garner, who died suddenly this weekend. Chief Garner was known as a decisive, direct individual who spent every day of his career concerned for the citizens who live and work in the city of Angels. Chief Garner attended several of our events and we join in offering our condolences to the department and his family.

Los Angeles Times Journalist Sandy Banks has written a moving tribute to Chief Garner. You may read it by clicking here.

I am currently working with a team of people on skid row researching the history and current status of the historic fire station on 5th Street and Maple in downtown Los Angeles, CA. We understand that this fire station is the oldest fire station in downtown L.A. skid row area. We have also recently been informed that the corporation that now holds the lease on this fire station is about to loose the lease in January 2011 and our team is interesting in submitting the necessary paper work to lease the fire station and build a gallery and entertainment center that will remember the past and improve the present and impact the future of all the people of skid row. Please feel free to contact me at 310-292-1811 (my cell no.) Happy holidays and god bless. Hope to hear from you soon.
