L.A. County Fire Chief Daryl Osby to retire after four decades of service

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby has announced his official retirement from the department effective July 30 after 11 years in the top position.

Osby has been in the fire service for nearly four decades and was appointed chief by the County Board of Supervisors in 2011.

“I’m truly grateful for the amazing 38 years I’ve spent protecting the lives, property and environment of Los Angeles County residents, especially the last 11 in which I’ve had the honor of serving as the First Fire Chief Firefighters to serve the nation, if not the world,” Osby said in a press release.

According to the press release, Osby will work with his executive team and board of directors to develop a succession plan before his retirement.

“Day in and day out, we answered the call of people who were going through the worst day of their lives, whether they needed lifesaving rescue, medical treatment or just a helping hand,” Osby said. “It’s this unwavering commitment that inspires me to come to work every day and makes it so difficult to say goodbye. It was truly an honor to be your fire chief.”
