The County of Los Angeles Fire Department (LACoFD) was joined by the Los Angeles County Firefighters’ Memorial Committee, International Association of Fire Fighters Local 1014, and the Los Angeles County Association of Chiefs for the 2024 Firefighters’ Memorial Service.

Held annually at the LACoFD Memorial Wall, this memorial pays homage to the life and legacy of brave, fallen members who made the ultimate sacrifice.

As part of this years’ service, Fire Captain Arn Tretsven was formally memorialized and added to the Memorial Wall as a symbol of remembrance, respect, and gratitude for faithfully serving with bravery and distinction.

Each of the 103 names on the Memorial Wall were read followed by a bell ring to honor their memory.

“Today’s service is a reminder that for every fallen firefighter, there is a family that has also paid the price and they continue to mourn the loss of their loved one,” said Chief Marrone. “We hope as our Fire Department family you feel comfort and assurance in knowing that we are here to support you and will never forget your loved one, nor what they have done for us.

Today, August 30, 2023, marks the 14-year anniversary of the tragic deaths of LACoFD Fire Captain Tedmund “Ted” Hall and Fire Fighter Specialist (FFS) Arnaldo “Arnie” Quinones during the Station Fire in 2009.

Captain Hall and FFS Quinones were assigned to protect Camp 16. These two brave individuals made the ultimate sacrifice when Camp 16 was overrun. Their actions saved the lives of over 60 individuals who were also at Camp 16 during the fire.

To honor their lives and legacy, LACoFD personnel will join in an “All Call” at 5:00 p.m.

This moment of silence allows us to reflect on the great loss that has had a lasting impact on the Department.

While the years have passed, their sacrifice continues to inspire us all to be our best and watch over one another.



On Tuesday, May 30, 2023, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) honored fallen firefighters at its annual Firefighters’ Memorial Service at Department headquarters.

Each year, the LACoFD honors fallen first responders with a formal service.

Every name on the wall is read out loud, followed by the ringing of the bell in remembrance of their memory and legacy.

Fire Captain Steven McCann was added to the Firefighters’ Memorial wall this year.

Captain McCann passed away on February 9, 2022.

Family and friends of the fallen heroes joined Fire Chief Anthony C. Marrone and the Executive Team to pay their respects.

The memorial service was live-streamed on the Department’s YouTube channel for all of those who were unable to attend in person.

Every year since 1988, the widows in the Family Support Group attend the event to honor their spouses.  They established the memorial wall project and the nonprofit Los Angeles County Firefighters’ Memorial Committee to allow them to pay tribute to the memory of the Department’s fallen firefighters.
