How many members do they ride on a engine/truck. What kinda PPE do they use?, do they see a lot of fire? I have many questions about them since I am from the midwest and those are just a few i thought of from the top of my head.... Pics would be nice also thanks

    There really isn't too much info out there though about the LAFD. I'm going through backgrounds right now with them so I've spent plenty of time searching online when I started the process. I viewed all of those sites, as well as every LAFD video that I could find on youtube.

    My advice is to visit a fire house. I gained A LOT of information that way. Not sure where you live so it might be hard. If you live far away, call a recruiter. I did this a few times since I live in Milwaukee, WI. I could only afford to go out there when needed.

    I'll answer a few of your questions. This is all off of the top of my head so the numbers aren't exact. There are about 3500 members. They have about 107 stations. I'm not sure on the number of engines, trucks, rescues, etc. They do have a heavy rescue company. They actually have a piece of apparatus for pretty much everything that you could think of. They have helicopters, buldozers, USAR, swiftwater rescue, brush patrol, and several others. That's one reason that I like the place. There are so many options. They do see a lot of fire. Like every other city, it depends where you're stationed. I talked to one guy when I was there who used to work in a station in South Central LA. He said that he had a fire almost every shift. They are one of the biggest and busiest departments in the country behind New York and Chicago. Hope that helps.

    WFD, to get back on track, I'm sure you've seen your other thread that has some specific info posted about the # of engines, ladders, etc. in L.A. I know that they are now wearing the new California spec Morning Pride turnouts along with the County, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and several others. I also believe the run a single rescue, more similar to an FDNY rescue than their L.A. County counterparts. And what they call their "Heavy Rescue" is a big *** tow truck/wrecker they use at any and all MAJOR extrications.
