Councilman Dennis P. Zine transferred nearly $200,000 in discretionary funds to support critical Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) emergency service needs in the San Fernando Valley. The funding was used to buy equipment that will be spread throughout the stations in LAFD’s Battalion 17 which covers Council District Three.
The Los Angeles Fire Department thanks Councilman Zine for his generous appropriation of funds to purchase critical equipment and supplies that will be used to enhance our service. These funds have been earmarked for the Fire Stations serving the communities of Canoga Park, Reseda, Winnetka, Woodland Hills, and Tarzana.
Battalion Chief Joseph Foley, who serves as the liaison to CD3, appreciates the Councilman’s support of the LAFD and his continuous commitment to public safety saying, “Councilman Zine understands how crucial it is for the LAFD to have the proper life saving equipment in its efforts to provide world class public safety service.”
"The Firefighters, Paramedics, and Inspectors in the Los Angeles Fire Department are dedicated to their career as civil servants, and they work tirelessly every day despite drastic budget cuts to save lives and protect property,” said Frank Líma, President, IAFF Local 112, United Firefighters of Los Angeles City. “This additional funding from Council District 3 comes at a great time when our Fire Department has seen unprecedented budget cuts. Councilman Zine has stepped up not only for our Firefighters, but the community as well. The purchase of this life saving equipment will be essential in helping our Firefighters be more efficient, and much more effective when the lives of the public are on the line. This additional funding will help Firefighters do their jobs, and it clearly shows that Councilman Zine truly does put public safety first."
This money was used to purchase critical supplies and equipment such as GPS’s, Battery Kits, and Sawzalls for LAFD Fire Stations 72, 73, 84, 93, 104, 105, and 106 in order to support the men and women who provide emergency services for the residents of the San Fernando Valley.
