Los Angeles Fire Department Station Number 19 (LAFD)

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Now you see, it now you don't.</p>
<p>Most drivers crusing west on Sunset Boulevard probably don't notice Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) Station Number 19 unless there's a fire-engine red vehicle parked outside.</p> <p>But this station is a critical link in protecting Brentwood residents  from a fire like the devastating 1961 Bel Air Brentwood blaze.</p> <p>A look at the LAFD's fire station locator (link below) shows the hazards.  Type in our ZIP code (90049) and select a ten-mile radius.  When the map pops up you'll see a few scattered stations and what we all know to be thousands of acres of scrub brush and trees and houses and wilderness.</p> <p>While Station Number 19 is not affected by the "rolling brownouts"  put into effect because of city budget woes, taking 15 fire trucks and nine ambulances out of service daily could increase response time, according to United Firefighters of Los Angeles City President Pat McOsker.</p> <p>That said, the crew at Station 19 are happy to host visiting groups of schoolkids, or bring a truck and some fully-outfitted firefighters to your kindergarten for an educational day the children will never forget.</p> <p>The original Station 19 was located on North Main Street downtown and closed in 1949, when the Brentwood station was opened.</p>
