Will Brownouts stil be in effect? who will cover the stations that are being used at the Drill? will the citizens of the City of Los Angeles be safe?

joholula,

Thanks for the note. I apologize for the delayed reply (our office is short-staffed at the moment).

The Fire Chief's 'Expanded Modified Coverage Plan' was in effect during this two hour drill.

Los Angeles Fire Department dispatchers coordinated optimal citywide coverage with available resources while personnel were involved in this essential training.

As you know, members of the LAFD do their utmost to protect those they are sworn to serve - including times when resources are spread thin by mandated training, emergency activity or other events beyond their individual control.

I hope this information helps.

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

Brian Humphrey
Firefighter/Specialist
