Goal: To suppress fires while maximizing life safety and minimizing environmental and property damage.
The Torrance Fire Department staffs a constant resource for fighting fires in the City of Torrance of seven engine companies, two truck companies, five paramedic rescue units, an air & light unit, and one battalion chief all with trained fire fighters. These resources are distributed geographically throughout the City in six fire stations. The same personnel and apparatus are available to respond to all the other types of emergency incidents the fire department handles. Cross discipline of these resources gives us a rapid response to all types of incidents throughout the city.
In support of our fire fighting capability, on-duty fire fighters routinely maintain all equipment, annually test all of our fire hose, and conduct semi-annual inspections of all fire hydrants throughout the City of Torrance.
