Welcome to the Redondo Beach Fire Department

Our mission is “Serving the community by protecting life, property, and the environment through prevention, education and emergency services.”

Welcome to the Redondo Beach Fire Department web site. We hope the information provided will be helpful to you and your family. The Redondo Beach Fire Department is a full service Fire Department that provides fire suppression, emergency medical response, code enforcement and marine safety services. 

The Redondo Beach Fire Department provides its services from three Fire Stations strategically located within the City boundaries. Additionally, Fire Station #3 serves as the base for our Harbor Patrol unit providing services to all boaters within the Marina. The Redondo Beach Fire Department provides for the public’s safety by deploying and staffing a variety of emergency response vehicles. In addition to firefighting, the Department cross-trains its staff to provide special services such as emergency medical care, hazardous materials management, and special rescue operations.

The Department maintains two dedicated paramedic units, three fully staffed fire engines, a battalion chief, a 100’ ladder truck, a marine rescue/harbor patrol vessel, and a fire boat. Additional resources include a hazardous materials response unit and light/air support vehicle. These Department resources are available 24 hours a day for those in need.

The Fire Department responded to 6,817 incidents in 2016. These incidents were divided into 4,702 emergency medical incidents and 2,115 fire related incidents. Additional fire related incidents included assistance for hazardous spills, fire alarm system activations, investigations and public service calls. Many of these incidents required more than one responding unit, resulting in more than 10,000 total responses by emergency apparatus.

Fire Station Three
 serves as the base for our marine Harbor Patrol Division. It is located at the entrance of the King Harbor Marina. Boating is a popular Redondo Beach activity and the Harbor Patrol’s primary mission is to protect our coastline and harbor areas. Fire Station Three is also home to a 29' Crystaliner Fireboat and land-based rescue squad. 

Fire Prevention is comprised of a Deputy Fire Marshal and inspection personnel. The Bureau conducts plan checks, inspects new building construction projects (in conjunction with the Building Department), and conducts annual inspections of major buildings including schools, high-rises and hotels. The fire suppression units perform life safety inspections within all small B1 occupancies and in all apartments and condominium complexes having five units or more.

A Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) academy for Redondo Beach residents is offered two times a year. Training includes Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Medical Operations, Light Search & Rescue, Disaster Psychology, Team Organization and First Aid and CPR certification. 

The Fire Department’s Special Services Division coordinates our Firefighter and Paramedic training programs. The Special Services Division has been very successful in building a partnership with the Beach Cities Health District which has been supportive by providing grants to our department for the purchase of medical supplies and for training of our Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
