This page was printed from the City of Brea's website.
The City of Brea was incorporated in 1917, and at that time the Brea Fire Department was born. The Department was totally volunteer and had several Chiefs, some of which included W.L. Moore, Archie Burns, Charles McGraw, and Emil Carson. During the 1930's Judge Charles Kinsler was named as Brea's first fully paid and first full time fire chief.
