The LAFD Deployment Plan was approved today by a 12 to 2 vote [of the City Council] with two amending motions.
The first amending motion speaks to restoring funding to the department to re-open resources. Should labor make contract concessions, those funds will return directly to the Fire Department. Specifically 6.9 million dollars in anticipated concessions from labor negotiations will be placed in the unappropriated balance account.
The Department will use the same data analysis system that was used to create the deployment plan to determine what neighborhood services will be restored.
The second amending motion was designed to maintain the position authorities without the funding. 318 position authorities remain unfunded. This means that any savings that are found within the budget will be used to restore neighborhood resources. Those resources will be determined by the Fire Chief.
July 5th  remains the implementation date for the LAFD Deployment Plan. The MCP [Modified Coverage Plan] will remain in place until that date.
Special Duty sworn furloughs were approved.
"After several hours of debate, I’m pleased that the LAFD Deployment Plan proposed by Chief Peaks was approved by the Los Angeles City Council," said Councilmember Tony Cárdenas.
"I applaud his leadership and vision in the development of a Plan that will save the City more than $50 million a year while enhancing public safety for all of Los Angeles." said Councilmember Tony Cárdenas.
