Governor Newsom Honors Fallen Los Angeles County Firefighter Andrew Pontious

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement regarding the death of Los Angeles County Firefighter Andrew Pontious: “Jennifer and I offer our sincerest condolences to the family, friends and entire Los Angeles County Fire Department for the loss of Firefighter Andrew Pontious. His service protecting the Los Angeles community will never be forgotten.”

On June 14, 2024, Firefighter Pontious died while responding to an emergency in Antelope Valley.

Firefighter Pontious, 52, was a nearly two-decade veteran of the fire service who was most recently assigned to a four-member fire engine at Station 93 in Palmdale.

He is survived by his wife and children.

In honor of Firefighter Pontious, flags at the State Capitol and Capitol Annex Swing Space will be flown at half-staff.

    Patriots, American citizens and 90% of first responders and our mighty military personnel will too. But those 60 plus % who will flee to another country if our country were ever to be invaded won't. We call them liberal left cowards who want to be in a socialist country where there's a Dictator ruling. I would suggest to them go to Canada.

      Think you’re more than a little confused about who wants to be a dictator. And not sure just who you really know in the military, but they don’t much like being referred to as losers. It’s going to be great fun seeing be how Trump does without notes, an audience and muted mics during the upcoming debate.
