City Welcomes New Paramedic Squad 87
On Thursday October 4, 2018 Los Angeles County First District Supervisor Hilda Solis and Fire Chief Daryl Osby partnered to host a dedication ceremony, officially welcoming a new paramedic squad to Fire Station 87 to the City of Industry. Council Members Catherine Marcucci and Newell Ruggles presented the paramedic squad with a Certificate of Recognition for their dedication and service to the community.
On August 1, 2018, Squad 87 began serving the City of Industry, the unincorporated communities of Avocado Heights and Bassett, and a section of La Puente. In its first month of operation, Paramedic Squad 87 responded to approximately 800 calls.
The addition of the new squad improves response times and provides relief to other squads in the area.
