Welcome to TURNOUT!

We here at Training Services Section (TSS) are committed to delivering to you the most up-to-date information on the skills, tools and techniques that you need to be the best first responder you can possibly be. TSS is in the midst of a “training revolution,” studying our past in-service training model and re-imagining new and better ways to deliver standardized training material in a way that best fits the demands of our profession. As part of this “training revolution,” we are incorporating our efforts with the “digital revolution” to bring you TURNOUT, an electronic magazine dedicated entirely to enhancing your knowledge base and skill-set.

The State of the Department – Fire Chief Address 2013

TURNOUT brings you Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby’s first-ever “State of the Department” address. In his message to all personnel, the Chief outlines where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. The Department is as strong – if not stronger – than it was when he took over two years ago, due to the hard work and dedication of our emergency and business operations teams, the backbone of the Department. Chief Osby has high expectations for our organization, himself, and each and every one of us. Play the video and find out exactly what our Fire Chief is thinking and doing to help us all make the Los Angeles County Fire Department the best fire department in the nation.
