About the Long Beach Fire Department

The Long Beach Fire Department “is divided into five bureaus which report to the Fire Chief. Each bureau is further broken down into divisions. Each bureau has specific responsibilities and are independently managed. The Operations Bureau, Fire Prevention Bureau, and the Support Services Bureau are managed by deputy chiefs while the Administration Bureau and the Disaster Management Bureau are managed by civilian employees.

The Operations Bureau is responsible for all field operations including Fire Suppression, the Lifeguard Division, and fire/non-fire response activities”.  The Operations Bureau also contains the Marine Safety Division which “is responsible for the operation and management of the Marine Safety/Lifeguard Division and the safe and lawful use of the 9 miles of beaches, 5,300 acres of oceanfront property, waterways and marinas of the City of Long Beach. Additionally, the Marine Safety Division is responsible for the public safety of the 4,000 pleasure craft moored in the City's marinas and responding to water emergencies in the City's rivers and lakes.”

The Fire Prevention Bureau of the Long Beach Fire Department “is responsible to prevent fires from starting, to provide safety education in case of fire, to investigate and identify suspicious fires and environmental crimes through proactive enforcement of Fire, Life Safety, and Environmental Code requirements in the City of Long Beach. The Bureau is responsible for Fire Code Enforcement, Plan Check, Fire Investigation, Arson Prosecution, Environmental Investigations and Records Management. It over sees community services divisions, including Public Information.”
