CAPTAIN PAUL OYLER

Paul Oyler is currently on the Executive Board and is serving as the Secretary for the Los Angeles County Fire Museum Association. Paul started as Battalion Representative in 1986 and has been active with the Museum ever since. After 37 years in the fire service, the last 30 with Los Angeles County, Captain Oyler retired in 2016. Retirement came at just the right time to help open the Fire Museum to the public every Wednesday – Saturday and to assist in preparing for the grand opening of the new museum which occured on July 14th, 2018. Paul’s plan is to continue to help making the museum a great experience for our visitors.
