The Los Angeles County Fire Department’s (LACoFD) Central Regional Operations Bureau hosted its annual Fire Service Day at Fire Station 172 in Inglewood on Saturday, May 26, 2018. The event provides an opportunity each year for community members to meet their local firefighters, explore numerous fire apparatus, and learn about fire safety. The crowds enjoyed a special demonstration of the “Jaws of Life” by firefighters from Fire Station 170.
LACoFD Chief Deputy David R. Richardson Jr., Acting Assistant Chief Henry Rodriguez, and other fire personnel were in attendance to celebrate with the community of Inglewood. Home Depot presented a plaque and bench to LACoFD representatives as a thank you for “putting their lives on the line every day” to keep the community safe.
