    I am pretty sure that all fire dispatching in LA City is done firefighters at OCD.

    So the dispatchers ARE firefighters? Although I'm sure this allows for more job diversity it sounds like a waste of resources. I'm sure it's good for a FF out on injury or something but to pay him/her the same rate? Hmm... wonder what the basis of that decision was.

    Kyle,
    You are correct. LAFD dispatching is done by sworn firefighters.

    Hey Chief. I was just in LB a few weeks ago for about 24 hrs. Then I was pretty much all over the place out there.
