Public Records

Attention: Our public records request process has changed. Records Request forms are no longer accepted via email. All record requests will be redirected to the NextRequest system as this is now our current records request process. Please review our revised instructions before submitting your records request. The NextRequest hyperlink is provided in the records request instructions below.

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 CalEPA Regulated Site Portal combines data regarding environmental regulated facilities located throughout the state of California into a single, searchable database, including an  interactive map. The portal provides information related to the following activities: hazardous materials and waste, state and federal cleanups, impacted ground and surface waters, and toxic materials. Access to this portal is free of charge.
