Beautiful. Thank you for your service. My condolences

Early this morning, 124 #LAFD Firefighters responded to a major commercial structure fire on Venice Blvd in Palms. One firefighter was transported to the hospital for medical evaluation. In addition, 17 cats perished in the fire, but 2 were successfully resuscitated by our firefighters. Yet another reminder that there are dozens of fires every day in LA City - please be safe. ...

Thank you, Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo, for your efforts to help protect our firefighters and our families. #ab2059 will allow firefighters throughout California to have more tools to help keep our communities safe from dangerous materials while also protecting our firefighters who risk their lives daily. Thank you! #IAFF #uflac #firefightersI’m proud to announce that AB 2059 has been signed into law which would require businesses that supply and move hazardous materials to make sales, shipping and transfer information available to the local Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs), that work alongside our firefighters, to identify large quantities of hazardous materials that are currently stored and moved around in ways that they can’t trace.

On May 16, 2020 a fire started at a building on Boyd Street in Downtown Los Angeles. That fire caused a large explosion due to an unknown collection of Butane gas at the property which environmental professionals had no way of knowing was present under the current system of reporting. As a result of that very large and sudden fire, eleven Los Angeles City Firefighters were injured.

Strengthening protections so all Californians can live in a healthy community has always been a critical part of my work.

#AB2059 will give additional tools to our firefighters and environmental professionals to find improperly stored materials before they become a threat to health and safety.

A commitment to service for others is what every firefighter brings into the firehouse during every shift.  For our sisters who are mothers as well, it's a feeling that extends beyond the duties they fulfill on the job because the firefighter family is an extension of the one they have at home.  Today and everyday, we want to wish our mothers a Happy Mother's Day.  Remember, children tend to grow up with many heroes in their lives, but their first hero is their mother. #HappyMothersDay
