About the Department

Fire Station 1
 is located at 401 S. Broadway (two blocks south of the Redondo Beach Municipal Pier.) It is the headquarters station for Fire Administration and the Fire Prevention Bureau. Station One is home to a 2006 American LaFrance 1500 gpm Engine, a 2004 American LaFrance 100' Ladder Truck, a 2005 Wheel Coach Paramedic Unit, a 2008 Suburban Command Vehicle, and a 2001 American LaFrance reserve unit.

Fire Station 2 is located at 2400 Grant Avenue and houses a 2001 American La France 1500 G.P.M. Engine, a 2015 Pierce 1500 gpm pumper, a 2005 Wheel Coach Paramedic Van, and a 1990 Pierce Air & Light unit. Station Two also serves as a backup Communications & Emergency Dispatch Center for both Fire and Police services.

Fire Station 3 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).
