In our continuing effort to support our beloved Rosa family during this tragic time, we have established the Friends Supporting The Rosa Family Fund. The outpouring of love and support from our local community has been incredible and your consideration of financial support is greatly appreciated. 

On June 25, 2018, at 3:49 a.m. the Long Beach Fire Department responded to a fire alarm at the 600 block of East 4th Street. There were supplemental calls reporting a fire and an explosion, and occupants reported a strong smell of gasoline in the area.

As fire units made their way to the reported location, fire crews noticed windows had been blown out on the 2nd floor of the building. The sprinkler system had been activated, and knock down of the fire occurred at 3:59 a.m.

At 4:08 a.m., there were reports of shots fired. Two Long Beach firefighters who were rushing in to save lives were unexpectedly struck by gunfire. They were both transported to a local trauma center. Captain David Rosa, a 17-year veteran of the Long Beach Fire Department, died in the line of duty from injuries he sustained in this incident. Captain Rosa is survived by his wife and two sons. His last assignment was at Fire Station 10, which is located in Central Long Beach.

The Memorial Service for Fire Captain Dave Rosa has been set for Tuesday, July 3, 2018 at 10:00 AM. The service will take place in the arena of the Long Beach Convention Center located at 300 East Ocean Blvd.

In lieu of flowers, we kindly ask you to consider donating to the Friends Supporting The Rosa Family Fund.
