Every day, the Los Angeles County Fire Museum Team honors those Firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty and from career related illnesses or injuries while serving our County of Los Angeles residents. We will never forget those who gave their all during their last alarm call. Thank you brothers and sisters.
There are two Memorial walls here on the Los Angeles County Fire Museum website. One lists the line of duty deaths, those who gave their all while on duty. The other wall lists the firefighters who lost their lives due to duty related illness or other duty related factors. All our firefighters join the Department prepared to serve the County and contract cities. They work selflessly everyday so we may all stay safe and healthy. Keep your first responders in your mind, and thank them when you see them.
The Producers release the INTO THE UNKNOWN, THE PARAMEDICS’ JOURNEY Podcast & other announcements. In this series of the podcast, you’ll hear from the filmmakers, including executive producers Mantooth and Tighe. CLICK HERE for more information and the links to the podcast and more.

The Los Angeles County Fire Museum is on the ground floor of The Mayne Events Center, which is located in downtown Bellflower, California. There is a banquet facility upstairs that is managed by the private company TGIS.
Our sparkling display space is chock full of displays of fire apparatus and artifacts. You will also find our World Famous EMERGENCY! television show apparatus Squad 51 and both Engine 51s. As expected, they are central to our display. Our large collection of rigs include apparatus from the hand drawn, horse drawn, and from the early 20th Century to the modern era. We exchange the displays often and bring out various rigs for public viewing from our shop and storage warehouse in South Gate.
Our display cases are full of fascinating fire related artifacts. Our Engine Company 51 Store has t-shirts, hats, and more (including items not sold on the internet) that you will want to take home with you.
