El Segundo has new interim fire chief — and he has plenty of experience in the South Bay.
The City Council unanimously OK’d appointing former Manhattan Beach fire Chief Robert Espinosa to temporarily lead the El Segundo Fire Department during the panel’s Tuesday, May 2, special meeting, less than a week after announcing previous Chief Deena Lee’s retirement. Lee had held the position since 2021.
It’s Espinosa’s first job since 2018, when he retired as Manhattan Beach’s fire chief. His tenure there ended somewhat tumultuously, with some fire employees giving him a vote of “no confidence” shortly before his exit.
El Segundo City Manager Darrell George tapped Espinosa to helm that town’s Fire Department on an interim basis. But the California Public Employees’ Retirement System requires that city councils also approve employment agreements for retirees.
Espinosa began his stint in El Segundo on Wednesday, May 3, with his tenure set to end on Nov. 15 — unless the city finds a permanent fire chief sooner. He’ll make $116.03 per hour, according to his employment agreement.
“I expect to meet those expectations (of the city),” Espinosa said during Tuesday’s council meeting, “and assist the city in finding a top notch fire chief to replace myself in a full-time position.”
Espinosa has more than 40 years of firefighting experience, having joined the El Segundo Fire Department in 1978 after being discharged from the U.S. Army. He served in Long Beach for 24 years, eventually rising to the chief rank. After that, he led Rialto’s force for a couple of years before becoming Manhattan Beach’s fire chief in 2011.
Despite his resume, some El Segundo fire employees have expressed concern about Espinosa’s ability to lead the force. The El Segundo Firefighters’ Executive Board sent a letter to the city earlier this week, which the Daily Breeze obtained, asking officials to reconsider his appointment.
“We believe that the decision to hire Mr. Espinosa within the El Segundo Fire Department would continue a very stressful work environment,” the letter said, “and inhibit a path back towards healthy city/employee relations.”
In 2018, 21 of 25 Manhattan Beach firefighters voted “no confidence” against Espinosa. Among the grievances firefighters had with him at the time was that his management style seemed to clash with many in the department and that hospital transfers were delayed.
Espinosa, who did not address the “no confidence” vote or the reasons for it during Tuesday’s El Segundo meeting, previously denied some of the allegations the Manhattan Beach firefighters union levied against him, while saying some issues — such as delayed hospital transfers — were out of his hands.
“A city should never be in a position where the community is asked to choose between its Fire Chief and their firefighters,” Espinosa wrote in his March 2018 resignation letter. “I do not desire to hold a public discussion about the differences management and labor have.”
Manhattan Beach’s relationship with its firefighters, meanwhile, wasn’t entirely mended by Espinosa’s retirement. In the fall, for example, the City Council imposed a one-year contract for its firefighters — after the union found it inadequate and rejected the deal. The parties will work to negotiate a “fair and balanced long-term agreement” this year, city spokesperson Jessica Vincent said in September.
As for El Segundo, George, who did not return requests for comment Wednesday, said during the council meeting that after speaking with past and present Manhattan Beach officials, he’s confident in Espinosa’s ability to run the department until a full-time replacement is found.
“The feedback from them was outstanding in terms of the role Espinosa played, as well as his competency,” George said. “Yes, there were issues, like I think any fire department has. But my conversations with them assured me that he can certainly do this job on an interim basis.”
Mayor Drew Boyles, for his part, said during Tuesday’s meeting that in his seven years on the council, he’s witnessed several instances of various unions taking votes of no confidence against a previous fire chief and city manager. That, to him, doesn’t necessarily prove they were unfit for their positions.
El Segundo, meanwhile, is actively recruiting for a new permanent fire chief.

The L.A. City Council unanimously voted to move ahead with a plan to convert its largest power plant, Scattergood Generating Station in El Segundo, to transition away from burning fossil fuels to generate electricity. The idea is for the plant to ultimately burn 100% green hydrogen instead. The plan is expected to cost at least $800 million.
City officials say “green" hydrogen is a needed part of the puzzle to piece together L.A.’s goal of getting 100% of its electricity from clean energy sources, such as wind and solar, by 2035.
The city’s wind and solar projects still lack sufficient batteries to store that power when the wind isn’t blowing or when the sun goes down, so officials argue green hydrogen will help avoid power outages, especially during hot summer nights, which are getting more extreme with global heating.
OK, let’s do some science.
Hydrogen is a colorless gas that is considered "clean" because it doesn’t involve carbon, which — when burned to create energy — becomes carbon dioxide, a major planet-heating gas.
But it takes energy to produce hydrogen. "Green" hydrogen is created by using clean energy sources like solar and wind to split water, or H20, into oxygen and hydrogen.
So burning just green hydrogen to create electricity — instead of methane gas, a carbon-based fossil fuel, as our power plants currently do — helps to eliminate planet-heating methane and carbon pollution.
Well … it’s not that simple. The project won’t start at burning 100% green hydrogen, but rather incorporate a phase-up from a blend of methane gas and green hydrogen.
Also, burning green hydrogen could actually worsen local, lung-damaging air pollution, at least with the technology as it currently stands — a big reason why environmental justice advocates are against the idea.
Opponents also consider hydrogen power another lifeline for the fossil fuel industry, which has advocated heavily for its use.
Green hydrogen also requires water (though far less than fossil fuel electricity generation) and is also more expensive than other green energy sources, such as solar.
This vote authorizes the L.A. Department of Water and Power to begin the contracting process for the retrofit project.
The council also passed a motion to require LADWP to look at alternatives to the plan and increase engagement with communities near Scattergood.
As of now, LADWP aims to complete the first phase of the project by 2029.

NORWALK — Entering Saturday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3 boys volleyball final, St. Margaret’s had won 15 consecutive matches in three straight sets.
After winning the first set against El Segundo, many in the Cerritos College probably thought it would be just a matter of time before the Eagles were added to the list.
However, the Eagles can be slow starters, and they recovered quickly Saturday, winning the next three sets for a 20-25, 25-19, 25-18, 25-9 victory and their first CIF-SS title since 2015.
“It just took a second to shake the cobwebs off, adjust and roll into the game,” El Segundo coach Luke Dallavo said. “Second set, once we started getting touches on the block, that’s when we really started to get into our groove.”
“It means everything,” Dallavo said of winning. “As soon as the school year started, we were in the gym 4-5 days a week, which is not something we normally did, but we knew we had the squad that could get here and those extra four months of work paid off.”
Dallavo played at El Segundo and graduated in 2018, which made the moment even more satisfying Saturday.
“I played a bit in college and I just wasn’t having fun with the sport anymore,” he said. “Challenging, balancing school, grades and everything. I got a call from my old coach and he said he was stepping away and he needed to train somebody to take over and asked if I wanted to do it. It was perfect timing and I fell in love all over again.”
The top-seeded Tartans (29-7) got started out strong, led by junior outside hitter Reed Wainwright. However, as the match progressed, the Eagles’ adjustments started to slow Wainwright down a bit, allowing for their offense to run.
“We studied up on them and we knew he would get the majority of the sets,” Dallavo said. “We had our guys stay out there, go up tall, get touches off of the fingertips and help out our defenders. That’s what helps them and once he started swinging into the block, that helped us out more.”
From there, El Segundo looked to its senior leader Nolan Kelly to run the offense. The team’s brothers, Dylan and Ryan Pilkvist, were strong on the outside, recording 18 and 15 kills, respectively.
“They have the brightest futures,” Kelly said of the duo. “Only sophomores, out here carrying the offense of this team, really unbelievable.”
Kelly followed his brothers Joe and Chris in the El Segundo program. To have the chance to cap his career with a CIF-SS title was more than special.
“The way we fought back was amazing,” Kelly said. “That was one of the best volleyball experiences I’ve had. The crowd showing up, the team coming together, it was amazing.”
The win also makes up for the 2020 season that was canceled because of the pandemic. Kelly believes the Eagles could have won a title that year.
“We’ve been working really hard,” Kelly said. “COVID ruined a chance at one (CIF-SS title). I was a freshman, we had a great group and that was a bummer, but to see the young guys step up (this year), this was really special.”

Reality star Ariana Madix SURved up some ONE LOVE® and brought the sauce (iconic Cane’s sauce, to be exact) at Raising Cane’s in El Segundo, CA today.
Following her nationally-televised breakup, the bartender, actress, and model turned her attention to the tastier things in life: Raising Cane’s Chicken fingers, fries, Texas toast, slaw and sauce, serving fans and Caniacs alike.
Ariana channeled her SURver days by working the Drive-Thru and front counter just hours before part one of season 10 reunion of the chart-topping reality-show Vanderpump Rules set to air tonight at 6:00 pm PT on Bravo.
“I had so much fun hanging out with the Crew and being able to meet and mingle with fans!” said Madix. “I have felt so loved and supported, and being able to interact with them and show them my appreciation through this experience with Cane’s has been an experience I’ll never forget.”
Ariana and the Founder of Raising Cane’s, Todd Graves, had a Facetime call during her shift and Graves offered any entrepreneurial advice for her new sandwich shop opening in West Hollywood.
A long-time fan favorite, all eyes have been on Ariana as she was in the midst of a cheating scandal between her long-term boyfriend Tom Sandoval and castmate Raquel Leviss - a historic moment in Bravo history that has been dubbed “Scandoval.” Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules made its debut earlier this and has since become a fixture of pop culture with Ariana at the center.
Raising Cane’s is one of the fastest growing restaurant chains, with over 725 restaurants in 36 states, the Middle East and Guam and plans to open 100 new restaurants across several new markets in 2023.
The company recently announced plans to be one of the top 10 restaurant chains in the United States and is known for its ONE LOVE® – craveable chicken finger meals – which includes the iconic “Cane’s Sauce” – named the #1 most craveable sauce in the restaurant industry and most craveable chicken.
