SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement regarding the death of Los Angeles Fire Fighter Glenn Allen. Allen, in his 36th year of proud service to the citizens of Los Angeles, died this afternoon — two days after being gravely injured battling a structure fire in the Hollywood Hills:

“I was deeply saddened to learn that Los Angeles Fire Fighter Glenn Allen died today. This is a terrible tragedy, and a reminder of the dangers our fire fighters face every day on the job. He bravely answered the call of duty day in and day out, and ultimately gave his life in service of his community. My thoughts and prayers are with his family tonight, and I hope they take some small comfort in knowing that he saved countless lives throughout his 36 years, and died in performance of those heroic duties. I will ask my colleagues to join me in adjourning in memory of Glenn Allen when the Assembly meets next week.”
