Latest News

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!
