I am interested in getting a Fire Incident Report--what do I do?The Culver City Fire Department develops Fire Incident Reports for all fires within the City of Culver City. The Fire Prevention Division is located on the second floor of the Culver City City Hall at 9770 Culver Boulevard. The cost of obtaining a copy of a report is $5.00 payable to the CITY OF CULVER CITY. Requests can be submitted by U.S. Mail or via email through this link Fire Incident and Investigation Reports. The email request must include contact information and the fire incident date, location and name of involved.
Is there a difference between a fire truck and a fire engine?Yes, there is. A fire engine has hose, a water tank, a pump (to pump water) and a small assortment of ladders. A fire truck usually does not have a pump, hose, or water tank, but has a tall ladder fixed to the truck and over 100 feet of portable ladders along with additional equipment. The fire truck is most often thought of the "Hook and Ladder" with a tillerman steering the rear of the trailer section of the ladder.
Why do I always see fire trucks parked at the grocery store?Because firefighters are required to work a 24-hour tour of duty, they shop for and prepare their meals each day. They do this because it is more convenient when responding to emergency calls.
There is a smoke advisory in place by the South Coast Air Quality Management District and L.A. County Public Health due to smoke from the Skirball Fire and the Creek Fire.
