Alumnus Dan Hurlock is Downey’s Newest Fire Chief


Dan Hurlock will officially take over as chief of the Downey Fire Department next month. Hurlock is no stranger to Downey, as he is a homegrown member of Downey’s community already.

After graduating from Downey High School in 1983, he would go on to Long Beach City College and get his degree in electricity before transferring to Cal State Long Beach and earning a degree in Business Management.

“I’ve had an attitude of service basically my whole life,” said Hurlock. “That didn’t change when I got into the fire service; obviously the fire service is a service organization. My goal and my message is to continue providing the level of emergency service for the citizens that they expect and they deserve. The Downey Patriot
