We send our condolences to Detective Leist’s family and coworkers for their tragic loss. Please be careful when driving by an emergency scene.

Repost from @lasdhq - Today, @LASDHQ is grieving. We are shocked and stunned by the sudden loss of our family member. Amber Leist, a West Hollywood Station detective, and 12 year veteran, was fatally struck by a vehicle in the city of Los Angeles while assisting others. She was an outstanding detective who led by example.

Detective Leist leaves behind a family and two sons. One son who is currently serving in the Navy.
We at @LASDHQ will always be there for them.

As firefighters, we see horrors few can imagine. While the call may end, the effects linger.
If we’re not careful, sometimes they can push us over the edge.

Experts Support Four-Person Staffing On Fire Engines/Trucks

Since 2004, the Long Beach Fire Department has lost 30 sworn positions and is now below 1970’s staffing levels when the department responded to 5000 emergency calls, compared to 2010’s 48,525 calls. The Long Beach Firefighters are especially concerned about a city proposal to cut staffing onboard firefighting units from four to three, since this will cause completely unnecessary life-threatening delays.

California law requires that there must be four firefighters on scene before a unit can deploy personnel into a fire. If a unit arrives with only three firefighters, it has to wait for back-up wasting critical time since fire doubles in size every minute. Lost time results in greater danger to those in the building, those fighting the fire, the structure itself and surrounding neighbors.
