Citizens of South Pasadena, during this very difficult time, I want you to know that the members of your Fire Department remain poised and ready to answer the call and continue to provide uncompromised service to the community! I also want to personally thank all of our citizens for adhering to the ‘safer at home orders’ and helping us flatten the curve and beat this virus. For those that have been personally affected with sick loved ones due to Covid-19, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your Fire Department remains fully staffed and well equipped with Personal Protection Equipment. Currently there are no members out sick due to the virus and we are taking every precaution necessary to ensure we fulfill our mission of protecting life and property in South Pasadena during the COVID pandemic. I have never been more proud to be the Chief of your Fire Department and I have no doubt that we will get through this difficult time together and be a stronger community through the recovery.
Paul Riddle, Fire Chief
