LAFD celebrates 125 years of official service

2010 Fallen Firefighter's Memorial Event We mourn the loss of Firefighter Glenn L. Allen
The Los Angeles Fire Department began formal operations on February 1, 1886. Since then, the LAFD has been a beacon for new strategies, tactics, and training. During the coming year, the LAFD Historical Society will celebrate this important milestone in the department's history with a variety of events.

Get involved. Visit one of our two remarkable museums and share in the history with our docents and volunteers. Our museums house literally thousands of artifacts, and our staff delights in sharing stories, history, and education with everyone, young and not so young, too.
