Meet our new LA Fire Chief. As the second-largest fire department in the country, her well deserved appointment defies the notion that has historically prevented many women from advancing in careers predominantly held by men. Chief Crowley is undeniably qualified, exhibiting the experience, character, intellect, and work ethic that has not only earned her the respect among her peers but has enabled her to break this glass ceiling. As the daughter of an LA City Firefighter, as Chair of Public Safety, I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this moment in our City’s history and continuing our work together. Congratulations, Chief Crowley!
