Celebration of Life for Fire Fighter Jonathan “Jon” Flagler

Amidst a sea of hundreds of blue uniforms, family, friends, and public safety partners gathered together this morning to celebrate the life of fallen #LACoFD Fire Fighter Jonathan “Jon” Flagler.

Together we heard loving and funny stories from those closest to Jon, including his wife Jenny and sons, Brody and Jack. The boys reminisced and shared their dad’s love of football and how he carried jolly ranchers around and passed them out to the boys’ friends, earning him the nickname “Uncle Jolly.”

Jenny shared, “I knew he was the man I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. I didn’t get the rest of my life, but I got the rest of his,” through tears. “Thank you, Jon, for your never-failing love and devotion to our family. You have left a piece of yourself in our boys.”

Our LACoFD family will never be the same without Jon. He was an exemplary and esteemed member of our Vernon and LACoFD fire family who truly lived by our core values of courage, community, caring, and integrity.

In his remarks, Interim Fire Chief Anthony C. Marrone shared “Jon exemplified what a true hero is – caring, selfless, and brave. To Jenny, Brody, and Jack, thank you for sharing Jon with us – and for allowing him to spend time with us as our friend, brother, and fellow firefighter. Please know your Fire Department family will continue to be here for you. Our house will always be your house. Jon’s watch ended but his bravery never wavered. He is greatly missed by all of us – and we will never forget him.”

The LACoFD extends our heartfelt gratitude for the outpouring of messages, encouragement, and support for the Flagler and LACoFD families.

Thank you for continuing to keep the Flagler family in your thoughts and prayers.

RIP Fire Fighter Jon Flagler 🙏🏼💔🕊

Today, the Los Angeles County Fire Museum celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the show “Emergency!”

Emergency! is often credited with launching not only the careers of many emergency medical providers, but also helped with the establishment and advancement of paramedic programs across the country at a time when advanced pre-hospital care was still in its infancy.

The first episode of Emergency! aired on NBC back on January 15, 1972.

LINE OF DUTY DEATH OF LACoFD FIRE FIGHTER JONATHAN FLAGLER

It is with great sorrow that the LACoFD shares the line of duty death of Fire Fighter Jonathan Flagler. At approximately 2:49 a.m. this morning, Fire Fighter Flagler sustained fatal injuries while engaged in firefighting operations at a single-family residence in Rancho Palos Verdes.

The LACoFD, along with the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and Los Angeles County Firefighters, IAFF Local 1014, extend our deepest condolences and prayers to the Flagler family along with our Department family who are mourning this heartbreaking loss.

“I join with the Flagler and LACoFD families in mourning the sudden passing of Fire Fighter Flagler," said Interim Fire Chief Anthony C. Marrone. “It is always a tragedy to lose one of our own in the line of duty. Fire Fighter Flagler made the ultimate sacrifice; his bravery and courage will never be forgotten.”

A solemn procession from the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center to the Coroner’s Office is currently underway.

To ensure the proper care and support of the family and friends of Fire Fighter Flagler during this extremely difficult time, Chief Marrone has activated our Department's Memorial Management and Peer Support Teams.
