LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters are authorized to wear L.A. Dodgers baseball caps while on duty through the end of the World Series.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas tweeted the gear news after the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves on Sunday to secure a spot in the championship series, which starts today, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The tweet comes just days after another friendly California-Florida rivalry concluded – the NBA championship between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Alan Cominsky tweeted a congratulatory message to LAFD following the Lakers’ win over the Heat, part of a friendly wager in which the losing fire department chief had to wear gear from the opposing team.

Chief Terrazas replied, “You all look good in @Lakers purple & gold & especially good in @LAFD red!”
