The COA is deeply saddened by the loss of Assistant Chief Dean Cathey. Dean served the Los Angeles Fire Department for 33 years and retired in 2003. Even in retirement, Dean continued to serve his community, department, and the nation as a member of FEMA California Task Force 1 as well as a director on MySafeLA.
Dean loved life and lived every moment of it with a sense of gratitude, passion, and commitment. He influenced many generations of leaders in the LAFD and was the consummate professional. His legacy will be everlasting, and we will never forget his service to our City, State, and Nation.
