Access To Public Records

The California Public Records Act requires public agencies to provide access to public records held by the Los Angeles Fire Department CUPA. Requests may be made for records regarding inspections, investigations, statistical data, policies, reports, etc. Certain information, such as names of complainants, personal medical information, and records regarding ongoing litigation will not be released pursuant to the California Public Records Act and various privacy rules.

Please note the following free resource for access to public records - the CalEPA Regulated Site Portal - which is a website that combines data about environmentally regulated sites and facilities in California into a single, searchable database and interactive map. These activities include hazardous materials and waste, state and federal cleanups, impacted ground and surface waters, and toxic materials.
