Fire Department

It is the mission of the Avalon Fire Department to preserve life, property and the environment through leadership, management and actions, as an all risk life safety response provider.

Under the command of Fire Chief Michael Alegria, the Avalon Fire Department is served by 11 Full-Time Professional Firefighter positions and a 30-member Reserve Firefighting staff. Daily staffing is a traditional three member engine company supporting fire and Basic Life Support (BLS)/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) activities on a three-platoon Kelly Schedule. Advanced Life Support (ALS) services are contracted with Los Angeles County Fire/Baywatch Paramedics. All Avalon Fire personnel are full-time residents of Avalon, which is required due to the significant delay for "second in" mainland resources.
