HBNW would like to say THANK YOU to block captain Janice Y. for hosting a MYN Training for the Marineland Mobile Home Park.



"We're going to be losing a lot of people, and they're not the people you'd want to lose," Pace said. "We have some of the most amazing employees. We can only do so much. We're at the point we're breaking. It breaks my heart." ....

HBNW founders feel leaders should be working to bring groups together and building up, rather than bringing community teams to the breaking point.

Activity for August 19th to August 25th 2012

HBFD personnel extinguished a fire involving the engine compartment of a vehicle that was parked next to a structure. A short response time and quick on-scene actions by firefighters contributed towards containing the fire to the engine compartment of the vehicle. The cause of the fire was electrical. Another fire in Hermosa Beach involved a utility pole; that fire was started by arcing electrical wires. Hermosa Beach fire personnel assisted Redondo Beach Fire Department with a fire at Adams Middle School. That fire was contained to a motor in an air conditioning unit.
