San Diego Fire Chief Provides ‘Brown Out’ Insight
Posted on September 26, 2010
The impact of rotating “brownouts” imposed on city fire stations to save money has significantly impacted the response times of Rancho Penasquitos’ Fire Station 40, Chief Javier Mainar told Channel 10 News recently.
Implemented Feb. 6, 2010, Mainar said the rotating “brownouts” increased the average time between a call and arrival at a scene for Station 40 in PQ by 5.7 percent, from 6:15 to 6:36.
The SDFRD expects to save $11.5 million in the current fiscal year, and is on track to meet that figure, Mainar said.The mayor’s office has asked the SDFRD to trim an additional $7.2 million for the next fiscal year.
