Welcome to the El Segundo Fire Department. The mission of the El Segundo Fire Department is to serve the City of El Segundo by protecting lives, property, and the environment through quality and excellence in service. The City was incorporated in 1917, and at that time, 8 men and a fire chief formed a volunteer fire department. On November 24, 1947 a professional paid fire department was established. Today, the fire department is comprised of 43 sworn employees and 5 civilian employees. The department provides services out of 2 fire stations with emergency response capabilities that include 2 fire engines, 2 paramedic rescues, a 105' tiller ladder truck, a battalion chief command vehicle, and a type-1 heavy urban search and rescue unit. For close to 100 years the El Segundo Fire Department has pledged its service to the community, taking pride in our history and the city we serve.
