At this time, during Covid, all Museum locations are currently closed and our research staff is extremely limited with the amount of time they can process requests.
Members can receive basic information related to the history of the LAFD from our collections housed at the
Historical Society. Service records (personnel files) of firefighters are the property of the City of Los Angeles,
and no information contained within these records is available at LAFD Historical Society. Information relating
to places, dates and the history of the LAFD is generally available.
An hourly fee of $75 will be charged for research conducted by our LAFD Historical Society staff.
DIGITAL PHOTO REPRODUCTIONS
Non Commercial Use:
Digital reproductions from our collection are available for non-commercial use.
8×10 images are available for $25.00 each plus shipping and handling.
Please contact us for commercial use pricing.
Submit all research requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because we are an all volunteer staff, research/photographic requests, if approved, will take a minimum of 10 business days to complete.
