“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 world’s leading fire chief Fire Department in Los Angeles to serve the nation if not the world,” Osby said.
Osby was originally appointed head of the department by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in February 2011.
“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 that unwavering commitment that inspires me to come to work every day and makes it so difficult to say goodbye,” Osby said. “It was truly an honor to be your fire chief.”
In the transition phase before Osby’s retirement, he and his management team will work together with the supervisory board to ensure a smooth succession plan, the fire department said.
