Is it a safe, small town? Isn't El Segundo in Los Angeles? Well, yes and no. While El Segundo is in the Los Angeles area, it also couldn't be farther from it. In fact, we're one of the safest cities in Southern California. The ratio of sworn police officers to residents is 4.5 officers to every 1,000 residents. That's more than twice the average of other California cities. On average, a police officer can arrive on the scene of an emergency in only 2.8 minutes, approximately seven minutes faster than the citywide police response average for Los Angeles.
But let's not leave out our hardworking Fire Department. Their response time is a mere 4.5 minutes or less for emergency calls. They even have a dedicated fire station and paramedic ambulance for the busiest commercial and industrial area of town. So you see, if by some unfortunate occurrence, your business finds itself in an emergency, we'll find our way to the rescue.
