A statement by Los Angeles Fire Chief William Bamattre:
"The Fire Department was made aware of the City of Los Angeles settlement in the Mr. Pierce lawsuit. The Fire Department takes this and all work place environment issues seriously. It has been, and remains our goal, to create a positive work place environment that supports all men and women that comprise the workforce of the Fire Department.
We are currently working closely with the Fire Commission and all stakeholder organizations, including the Chief Officer Association, the Sirens (women firefighters), Los Bomberos, and the Stentorians to address all Fire Department Human Relations issues. This is being accomplished through a series of planning sessions to develop a comprehensive Strategic Implementation Plan that addresses all issues raised in the City Controller’s Audits affecting the Fire Department."
