Today I was happy to join Mayor Eric Garcetti and Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas to celebrate the expansion of the Fast Response Vehicle (FRV) program, an innovative solution to pre-deploy resources into our neighborhoods. These vehicles cut down response times, help firefighters provide rapid treatment for critical patients and serve as modified brush patrol vehicles. FRVs have been first on scene at multiple fire incidents and minimized fire damage as a result. Within the last three years, our district has experienced three of the City’s largest wildfires and I am proud to host a Fast Response Vehicle at 91s in Sylmar, which is the largest service area in Los Angeles at EIGHT SQUARE MILES. The expansion of this program is a win for our community.
