A La Verne fire station which had to shade a year ago due to staffing deficiencies could before long return.
The La Verne Fire Department had to close Fire Station No. 3, situated at 5100 Esperanza Drive, back in January of 2020 over staffing deficiencies, a circumstance which was then exacerbated by the Covid pandemic.
Notwithstanding, Mayor Tim Hepburn a week ago gave a $1.2 million suggestion that would permit the fire station to resume with a full motor organization. It would likewise augment staffing at fire stations No. 1 and No. 2.
“This staffing up, and placing this in the spending plan for an income source to support this, the main thing is the security of our firefighters, the wellbeing of our occupants,” Hepburn told media Wednesday.
He is required to introduce his proposition to the La Verne City Council on May 17. Hepburn said the city is likewise investigating the choice of conceivably contracting with the L.A. District Fire Department for firefighting services.
