Since its beginnings as a small pueblo, the city of Los Angeles has seen its fire department meet and overcome many diverse challenges in its service to the citizens. The fire department continually works toward the expansion of quality services to the residents of Los Angeles. It is this goal that has made the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) one of the most outstanding departments in the world.
Since the day the LAFD was organized in 1886, it has risen to an internationally recognized place of technical and professional excellence. Its members, however have never let diminish those traditions of “muscles, courage, and steam,” on which today’s devotion to duty was founded.
Brief and Execution
To coincide with its 125th anniversary, the Los Angeles Fire Department Historical Society (LAFDHS) commissioned Faircount to produce a special publication commemorating this important milestone. The publication was produced with the full editorial and photographic support of the LAFDHS and designed for all who serve and have served within the LAFD. The publication was also distributed at the two LAFD museums within the city and all anniversary events.
