Reorganization for L. A. Department
An ambitious plan for a complete reorganization of the top command of the Los Angeles City Fire Department has been given preliminary approval by the City Council.
The new plan, proposed by Chief Engineer William L. Miller, calls for creation of six new deputy chief positions, in addition to the one post now authorized.
One deputy will be in the Chief’s office for administration; one will command fire fighting Divisions I and III and another Divisions II and IV; one will command the Fire Prevention Bureau; another will be in command of Personnel and Training; one in Supply and Maintenance; and one in Buildings and Sites.
In addition, a new assistant chief’s position will be created under the deputy chief for administration and an assistant chief will be deputy commander of the Fire Prevention Bureau.—Cliff Dektar
