L.A.F.D swears-in first African American Fire Chief

Today at 10 A.M. Daryl Osby will be sworn-in, and become the first African American fire chief in the history of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

“It hasn’t fully set in yet. It’s an awesome responsibility, and I compliment the Board in having trust to select me as the fire chief,” said Osby.

Osby led numerous emergency responses in his 27 year career, including a catastrophic train derailment in Commerce in 2003.
