Playa Vista’s own Los Angeles Fire Station 67 got some love from local families and businesses on the evening of Sept. 27, continuing an annual tradition started by Brookfield Residential Director of Experience Sandra Kitashima.
Though there haven’t been any actual structure fires in the community, local firefighters stay busy. According to Capt. Quinlan, they mostly respond to automatic alarms.
“When Playa Vista was first being built, they had a lot of automatic alarms going off, just working out the bugs.” And then there are medical emergencies. “People are always going to have medical problems so that’s what we’re here for.”
Kitashima received a Certificate of Appreciation from L.A. City Councilman Mike Bonin for her “deep commitment to the community.”
“It’s an honor to be recognized for building community,” she said, “and giving back. It brings me great joy and heartfelt gratitude to receive such an accolade.”
