Fire Station 92 Company (Fire Truck) Slated for Permanent Removal -- Call to Action!

Reported by Kerry Cavanaugh of the Los Angeles Daily News on April 22, 2011, changes in Los Angeles Fire Department deployment were to be announced yesterday, including the CLOSURE OF ONE OF THE COMPANY FIRE TRUCKS AT FIRE STATION 92 that serves Rancho Park, Cheviot Hills and Century City.

 

As reported by Cavanaugh, Fire Chief Millage Peaks' redeployment plan will permanently and selectively close fire companies based on the computer modeling data (from the last three years). 

He'll reduce the number of staffed fire engines in areas where demand is low, and increase medical response in areas where demand is high.

 

City Council Member Greig Smith’s weekly report confirmed the plan, and assured his readers: “Clearly, we will need to thoroughly vet this proposal”.    Councilmember Smith noted: “If you have any specific questions, please send an email to the Fire Department directly at lafd.deployment@lacity.org

 

Needless to say, and especially with upcoming further development in Century City, the addition of light rail, and the Casden monster development plan at the corner of Sepulveda & Pico, removal of one of the two Station 92 fire trucks and loss of personnel is UNACCEPTABLE.

 

Please contact  Paul Koretz’s office and let him and his deputies know that we cannot and will not accept removal of any of Station 92's trucks.  Sheila Kouhkan of CD5 is a member of Rancho Park online.  Sheila – are you listening?
