Welcome to your Costa Mesa Firefighters website!
Welcome to the Costa Mesa Firefighters Association Web Site. The Costa Mesa Firefighters Association represents the 79 full-time professional firefighters who protect the residents and visitors of our city . Our members operate the City’s six fire stations and responded to 13,237 incidents in 2018. These incidents require Costa Mesa Firefighters to call on their training, knowledge, education, experience and expertise in fire fighting, emergency medical services, hazardous materials, and technical rescue skills.
Since 2009 our emergency call load has increased 42% and our staffing has decreased 18%.
The Costa Mesa Firefighters Association provides the community with the highest level of service, even under the toughest of circumstances. In addition to our primary function of the protection of life, property, and the environment we also serve the public in areas such as public education, fire prevention, and supporting local charities.
Please take the time to browse our website and find out more about who your Costa Mesa Firefighters are and the services to the community we are committed to providing.
The Costa Mesa Fire Family continues to share our heartfelt love, prayers, and thoughts with the Petruzziello Family, as we mourn the loss and celebrate the life of Retired Costa Mesa Fire Chief John Petruzziello. The services have been announced and are scheduled for Sept. 3, 2019 - 10 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints located at 12100 Ridgecrest Road, Victorville, CA, 92395.
Chief Petruzziello is survived by his wife Chreta, their children, family, and friends. Chief Petruzziello proudly served the Costa Mesa community as the Fire Chief for the City of Costa Mesa from 1979-1993.
The Costa Mesa Fire Family wants to acknowledge and give thanks, praise, and honor for the many contributions that Chief Petruzziello made to the community and the Costa Mesa Fire Family. Recently, we were fortunate to have him be a special part of our 2018 Costa Mesa Fire & Rescue Department and Retiree picture and to have him and Chreta join us for the grand opening of our new Fire Station no.1 this past year.
Please take a moment and keep his wife Chreta and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
