By Sentinel News Service
Published March 13, 2020

Due to efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) is postponing all public events for the next 60 days to ensure the health and safety of our first responders, business professionals, residents, and communities. These postponements are in alignment with direction received from the County of Los Angeles (County) Board of Supervisors, County Department of Public Health (DPH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and California Department of Public Health. This postponement includes all community events, in-person trainings, recruitment information seminars, and youth and mentoring programs hosted by the LACoFD. “Continued evidence of community transmission in Los Angeles County is continuing to expand; the LACoFD is taking the necessary measures to limit exposure to our team members, along with our residents and communities we serve to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19,” said LACoFD Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby. “We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and its impact to public health.” Please be assured the LACoFD will continue to be here for our residents and communities by providing prompt and skillful emergency medical service delivery during this challenging time.
