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 Photographic Reproductions:
