In January 2021, the Firemen’s Grapevine published a column entitled “Generations.” Over 50 different families participated. After this was published, we started receiving request for a part two. Well. you asked for it, and we delivered. After months of hard work, this is the second installment of LAFD Generations. A collection of 80 additional groupings, past and present, showing that there is nothing more important than family. The following pages are filled with a collection of names and pictures of LAFD members and the family members that proceeded them, worked side-by-side with, or followed in their footsteps. We take pride in memorializing the strong family ties that continue to this day. We hope you enjoy the following second installment of GENERATIONS!
Well, you have reached the end of Part Deux. We hoped you enjoyed walking through a bit of LAFD family history, combined with the present. Will this be the last edition of this column, or will the tradition continue? Only time will tell. If we get enough interest, we will look into a part three. So, if you missed out on the past opportunities to display your family pride, please feel free to submit a family picture, along with the name, final or current rank, and times of service of the concerned members. When we get enough submission, we will do our best to get it out to you. Please submit the information electronically or contact us directly and we can help. Send information as following. Example: John Doe. Firefighter III. 1985-2020. PLEASE follow this format. Send picture(s) and information to editor@LAFRA.org. Don’t let history escape you. Submit your information and keep the tradition of family alive for GENERATIONS to come!
