In February of this year, the City Council approved my motion to restore Paramedic Rescue 12 after almost seven years of North Long Beach being without one. This restoration was made possible by voters passing Measure A, and your support and partnership. 

Prior to the restoration of Rescue 12, the average emergency response time in North Long Beach was 8 minutes 40 seconds. I am proud to announce that since the restoration of Rescue 12, the average response times are now 5 minutes 36 seconds. That means we have shortened emergency response times by 3 whole minutes in North Long Beach!  In addition, there has also been a 30 second reduction in response time citywide!

Vice Mayor Rex Richardson's Weekly Letter

Dear Friends, 


“Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11."  — President Barack Obama

On this solemn day, it is a sacred obligation for each of us to remember those who lost their lives, recognize all who survived, honor the sacrifices of the first responders and recovery workers, and recapture the spirit of unity and service that arose in the immediate aftermath of the attacks. Never forget; United We Stand. 

This week, please join us for an Air Quality Community Meeting on Wednesday, September 13th from 6-7:30 pm at McKinley Elementary School (6822 Paramount Blvd).
