Welcome to the website of the STENTORIANS of L.A County,  We are The Association of African Americans in the Fire Service!

In 1954, our founders worked diligently with the idea to unite Black fire fighters in the struggle. Black and minority firefighter from various municipalities across the United States, have struggled over decades due to the injustices that exist in the fire service and local communities.  As a result the STENTORIANS was established and later a second chapter, the STENTORIANS of LA County was formed. 

Our Founders stepped out on a leap of faith to take a stand for social justice and “kept the fire burning for justice” as David J. Floyd puts it. David J. Floyd was the founding president of the International Association of Black Professional Firefighters.

We welcome you to explore our website as we proudly share who we are and the values for which we stand. Our website is intended to support the needs of our members, their families, and the communities we serve by providing the basic tools and resources needed to succeed. 

Thank you, 

Johnny Gray
