Emergency Services



The City of Burbank's Emergency Services and Disaster Agency (ESDA) is an extension of the City of Burbank Fire Department. Its mission is to provide assistance to the fire and police departments and to the citizens of Burbank in times of critical need or disaster. This assistance comes in many requests. They can range from evacuation from flooding to general safety and preparedness training.

The Burbank ESDA meets twice a month on the second and third Tuesday at 7:30 pm in the lower level of the Burbank City Hall.

The Burbank ESDA is comprised of members that are trained in various areas of emergency response procedures. These include, CPR/First Aid and Incident Command. In addition, they are also trained in Severe Weather Spotting and reporting procedures and have a general knowledge of selected Fire and Police response procedures. All members are Paid On Call (POC) responders.

The Burbank ESDA supports both the Burbank Fire Department and the Burbank Police Department with a variety of activities. These range from securing an area from a down power line to providing additional security activities during a special event.
