Essay On Fire Service Day Beverly Hills

“Let’s go boys. We have an emergency.” – 4 yr old boy having the time of his life.

There are several important events in the year according to my 5.5 yr old. Christmas and Easter are two, but right up there with national holidays are the open house days for the sanitation department and the fire stations!

The second Saturday of May is designated as Fire Service Recognition Day in Los Angeles (and a few surrounding cities). As part of this, neighborhood fire stations host an open house to welcome visitors of all ages. Local stations invite kids to sit in fire trucks, spray water from the hoses and explore the station. However, a few of stations go above and beyond to really wow their visitors with dramatic demonstrations and free food and drinks.

“Here it is. Load up the trucks. Lets go”

Last year we started our day at the LA Fire Department Museum and Station 27’s open house and pancake breakfast. We didn’t know what to expect, but figured at the least it was a good time to visit the museum that had been on our to do list for a while.

Watching as his “men” head off on an emergency, Station 27

It was amazing and packed. We arrived early enough to be served delicious pancakes by our awesome firefighters from Station 27 and to explore the museum before the demonstrations began. The museum is great and probably deserves it’s own post, but for now, make sure to go upstairs to see real fireman poles (gated off) for the kids to ooh and ahh over. Spend some time checking out the photos of famous fires and fire fighting gear used through the ages. Downstairs are old fire trucks, some dating back to the 1900’s. You and the kids will love it. If it’s too crowded or you don’t have time to soak it all in, the museum is open every Saturday for visitors.

Poised and ready while the Jaws of Life are brought out at Station 27

Back outside, the station volunteers announce the day’s scheduled activities of a fly-by of LAFD’s rescue helicopters and a demonstration on the jaws of life and how they are used to save lives out on the roads. Unfortunately, being located in a densely populated area and it’s proximity to the 101, this station is very busy. Given this, the trucks and EMS workers had to go out on several calls cutting visits to the station short. Be warned this could (and probably) will happen again this year.

Fire fighters working hard with the jaws of life to extract the ‘passenger’.

During our visit, we heard someone say that the best demonstrations were at the Beverly Hills Fire Station and that their festivities didn’t start until the afternoon. Not getting our fill of fire fighter action, this sounded awesome to us.

Observing the scene, now off duty.

The Beverly Hills’s Fire Station did not disappoint. There were activities for the kids inside the station house ranging from coloring to trying on real fire fighter uniforms. There were also free rides on the trucks. We arrived too late to get a ticket for this. Go early if you want to ride around the block in a fire truck.

The real show came towards the end of the day with demonstrations of the (very high!) aerial ladder, rescue rappelling and an actual fire fight! At the end of the open house, the fire department set an old car on fire to demonstrate their arrival on scene, the process of checking for passengers as well as putting out the fire. It was dramatic, intense and the highlight of the day for everyone. Stake out your spot early for a front row seat.

Call your neighborhood fire station for more information on the time and activities provided during their open house. It is an awesome day out for the whole family and a great way to show our support for the men and women who risk their lives every day to help us out in an emergency.

(s) Disability Retirement. Upon the application of a member, or his department head, a member who (1) is in the employ of the Village, (2) has ten (10) or more years of credited service, and (3) becomes totally and permanently disabled for duty as a public safety officer, by reason of a personal injury or disease, may be retired by the Board of Trustees. Provided, that after a medical examination of the said member, by or under the direction of a medical committee consisting of three (3) physicians, one of whom shall be named by the Board, one by the said member, and the third physician by the first two physicians so named, the said medical committee certifies to the .Board, in writing, that (1) the said member is physically or mentally totally disabled for duty as a Public Safety Officer, (2) his disability will probably be permanent and (3) the said member should be retired. The ten (10) years of service requirement contained in this section shall be waived in the case of any member whom the Board finds (1) to be totally and permanently disabled as the natural and proximate result of a personal injury or disease arising out of and in the course of this actual performance of duty as a Public Safety Officer in the employ of the Village, and (2) to be in receipt of, or entitled to receive workmen's compensation on account of his said physical or mental disability.

(t) Disability Pension.

1. Upon a member's retirement on account of disability, as provided in Section 3.08(s) hereof, he shall receive a disability straight life pension computed according to the provisions of Section 3.08(o) hereof, notwithstanding that he might not have attained his voluntary retirement age. Provided, that his said disability straight life pension shall not be less than twenty percent (20%) of his final average salary. Upon his retirement he shall have the right to elect an option provided for in Section 3.08(r) hereof.

2. Upon termination of his workmen's compensation payments, if any, arising on account of his Village employment, a disability retirant shall be given service credit for the period he was in receipt of workmen's compensation and his disability pension payable thereafter shall include such additional service credit. In the event he is paid a single sum in lieu of weekly workmen's compensation the period covered by such single sum shall be considered to be the number of weeks determined by dividing the applicable weekly workmen's compensation into the said single sum payment.

3. Any pensions payable under this section shall be subject to Section 3.08(u) hereof.

(u) Re-examination of Disability Retirement.

1. At least once each year during the first five (5) years following the retirement of a member with a disability pension, and at least once in each three (3) year period thereafter, the Board of Trustees may, and upon the retirant's application shall, require a disability retirant, who has not attained his voluntary retirement age to undergo a medical examination to be made by or under the direction of a physician designated by the Board. Should the said retirant refuse to submit to such medical examination in any such period, the Board may suspend payment of his disability pension until his withdrawal of such refusal. If such refusal continues for one (1) year all his rights in and to a disability pension may be revoked by the Board. If upon such medical examination of the retirant the said physician reports to the Board that the said retirant is physically able and capable of resuming employment with the Village as a Public Safety Officer he shall be returned to active service in the employ of the Village and his disability pension shall terminate. In returning the said retirant to Village employment as provided herein, reasonable latitude shall be allowed the Village in placing him in a position commensurate to the rank or position held by him at time of his retirement.

2. In the event a disability retirant, who has not attained his voluntary retirement age, becomes engaged in a gainful occupation, business or employment during the three (3) year period immediately following his disability retirement, paying more than the difference between his annual rate of compensation at the time of his retirement and his disability pension, his disability pension shall be reduced to an amount which together with the amount so earned by him shall equal but not exceed his annual rate of compensation. For each of these three (3) years following disability retirement, the retirant shall provide a statement of earnings for the prior year in a form deemed appropriate by the Board of Trustees. Should the retirant's earnings change the reduction in his disability pension, it shall be correspondingly adjusted.

Following the three (3) year period end and continuing until the retirant reaches voluntary retirement age, the retirant may petition in writing the Board of Trustees to adjust the income ceiling imposed by the preceding paragraph. A retirant may petition the Board of Trustees one time in each two (2) year period. Upon receipt of such a petition, the board of Trustees shall review same and render its decision within ninety (90) days of receipt of the petition. Any decision by the Board of Trustees shall consider the following standards:

a. Income level at retirement;
b. Income level at time of petition;
c. Physical and mental ability of retirant;
d. Amount of increase sought with reasons for requested increase;
e. Years remaining until retirant reaches voluntary retirement age;
f. Whether any adjustment should be based on any of the following:

(1) A flat percentage increase;
(2) The performance of the Consumer Price Index;
(3) Any Federal indicators relevant to Social Security adjustments;
(4) Any other factors deemed relevant by the Board of Trustees.

The decision of the Board of Trustees shall be in writing.

3. A disability retirant who has been or shall be returned to active service in the employ of the Village, as provided in this section, shall again become a member of the retirement system. His credited service at the time of his retirement shall be restored to full force and effect. He shall be given service credit for the period he was receiving a disability pension provided for in this Ordinance if within such period he was in receipt of workmen's compensation on account of his Village employment; otherwise, he shall not be given service credit for such period.

(v) Non-Duty Death Benefits. Any member who continues in the employ of the Village on or after the date he acquires ten (10) years of credited service and (1) dies while in the employ of the Village, and (2) leaves a widow, or in the case of an unmarried member leaves a father or mother whom the Board of Trustees finds to be dependent upon the said member for at least fifty percent (50%) of his or her support, the said widow or dependent father or dependent mother, as the case may be, shall receive a pension computed according to Section 3.08(o) and 3.08(r) hereof, in the same manner in all respects as if the said member had (1) retired the day preceding the date of his death notwithstanding that he might not have attained his voluntary retirement age, (2) elected Option A, and (3) nominated his said widow or dependent father or dependent mother, as the case may be, as beneficiary. In the event of the remarriage of the said beneficiary to whom a pension is being paid, his or her pension shall terminate.

(w) Duty Death Benefits. In the event a member with less than ten (10) years of credited service dies while in the employ of the Village and the Board of Trustees finds (1) his death to be the result of an injury or disease arising out of and in the course of his employment with the Village, and (2) that his eligible dependents are in receipt of workmen's compensation on account of his death, he shall, as of the date of his death, be granted a sufficient number of years of service to give him a total of ten (10) years of credited service, any provisions of this Ordinance to the contrary notwithstanding.

(x) Subrogation. If a person becomes entitled to a pension payable from funds of the retirement system as the result of an accident or injury caused by the act of a third party, the Village shall be subrogated to the rights of the said person against said third party to the extent of benefits which the Village pays or becomes liable to pay.

(y) Refund of Member's Accumulated Contributions.

1. Should any member cease to be employed by the Village and not be entitled to a pension payable from funds of the retirement system he shall be paid his accumulated contributions standing to his credit in the members deposit fund upon his application therefor filed with the Board of Trustees.

2. Except as otherwise provided in this Ordinance, upon the death of a member his accumulated contributions standing to his credit in the members deposit fund at the time of his death shall be paid to such person or persons as he shall have nominated by written designation duly executed and filed with the Board of Trustees. If there be no such designated person or persons surviving the said member his said accumulated contributions shall be paid to his estate.

3. Refunds of accumulated contributions as provided in this section may be made in a single sum or in installments as the Board of Trustees may from time to time determine by appropriate rules and regulations.

(z) Members Deposit Fund. The members deposit fund is hereby created. It shall be the fund in which shall be accumulated, at regular interest, the contributions deducted from the compensations of members and from which shall be paid refunds of accumulated contributions, as provided in this Ordinance.

1. Subject to any eligibility rules established by Section 3.08(i), a member's contributions to the retirement system shall be the sum of 3 percent (3%) of the first $4,800 of his annual compensation plus 6 percent (6%) of the portion, if any, of his annual compensation in excess of $4,800. Effective the 1st day of July, 1976, a member shall not be required to make additional contributions to the retirement system. Contributions already made and standing to a member's account in this fund shall remain in this fund and continue to be credited with regular interest until transferred to the pension reserve fund or distributed in accordance with this Ordinance.

2. The officer or officers responsible for making up the payroll shall cause the contributions provided for in this section to be deducted from the compensations of each member on each and every payroll, for each and every payroll period, from the date of his entrance in the retirement system to the date of his retirement or prior separation from Village employment, until the 30th day of June, 1976. The members' contributions provided for shall be made notwithstanding that the minimum compensation provided by law for any member shall be thereby changed. Every member shall be deemed to consent and agree to the deductions made and provided for herein and payment of his compensation less said deductions shall be a full and complete discharge and acquittance of all claims and demands whatsoever for the services rendered by said person during the period covered by such payment, except as to benefits provided by this Ordinance. Each of said amounts shall be deducted by the Village Treasurer and when deducted shall be paid to the retirement system and shall be credited to the members deposit account of the member from whose compensation said deduction was made.

3. In addition to a member's contributions, as hereinbefore provided, a member shall deposit in the members deposit fund, by a single contribution or by an increased rate of contribution, as approved by the Board of Trustees, the amounts he may have previously withdrawn therefrom and not repaid thereto, together with regular interest from the date of withdrawal to the date of repayment. In no case shall any member be given credit for service rendered prior to the date he withdrew his accumulated contributions until he repays to the members deposit fund all amounts due the said fund by him.

4. Upon the retirement of a member his accumulated contributions shall be transferred to the pension reserve fund. At the expiration of a period of three (3) years from the date a member ceases to be a member any balance standing to his credit in the members deposit fund, unclaimed by the said member or his estate, shall be transferred to the pension reserve fund. Provided, that no other disposition of the said balance is specifically provided for in this Ordinance.

(aa) Pension Reserve Fund. The pension reserve fund is hereby created. It shall be the fund in which shall be accumulated contributions made by the Village to the retirement system, and from which shall be paid pensions as provided in this Ordinance. Upon the basis of such mortality and other tables of experience, and regular interest, as the Council shall from time to time adopt, the actuary shall annually compute the pension reserve (1) for pensions being paid retirants and beneficiaries, and (2) for service rendered and to be rendered by members. The portions of the said pension reserves which are not financed by members' contributions shall be financed by annual appropriations to be made by the Village. The said Village appropriations shall be determined according to paragraphs (1), (2) and (3) of this section.

1. The appropriation for members' current service shall be a percent of their annual compensations which will produce an amount which if paid annually by the Village during their future service will be sufficient to provide the pension reserves, at the time of their retirements or deaths, for the portions of the pensions, not financed by the members' contributions, to be paid them based upon their future service; and

2. The appropriation for members' accrued service shall be a percent of their annual contributions which will produce an amount which if paid annually by the Village over a period of years, to be determined by the Council, will amortize, at regular interest, the unfunded pension reserves for the accrued service portions of the pensions to which they may be entitled; and

3. The appropriation for pensions being paid retirants and beneficiaries shall be a percent of the annual compensations of members which will produce an amount which if paid annually by the Village over a period of years, to be determined by the Council, will amortized, at regular interest, the unfunded pension reserve liabilities for pensions being paid retirants and beneficiaries.

4. In the event the amounts appropriated in the budget in any year are insufficient to pay in full the amounts due in said year to all retirants and beneficiaries, the amount of such insufficiency shall thereupon be provided by the appropriating authorities of the Village.

5. Should a disability retirant return to employment with the Village the pension reserve, at that time, for the portion of his pension which was financed by his accumulated contributions, at the time of his retirement, shall be transferred to the members deposit fund and shall be credited to his individual account therein.

(bb) Expense Fund. The Board of Trustees shall transfer from the Pension Reserve Fund into the Expense Fund sufficient funds to pay the expenses for the administration of the retirement system. {Ord. 315; 8-16-03}

(cc) Investment of Moneys.

1. The Board of Trustees shall be the trustees of the assets of the retirement system and shall have full power to invest and reinvest such assets, subject to the terms, conditions, limitations, and restrictions imposed by the State of Michigan as provided by Public Act 55 of 1982. The Board shall have the power to purchase notes, bonds, or other obligations of the Village at any legally conducted public or private sale, with or without advertising bids. The Board shall have the power to hold, purchase, sell, assign, transfer, and otherwise dispose of any securities and investments in which any of the moneys of the system have been invested, as well as the proceeds of the said investments and any moneys belonging to the system.

2. All assets of the system shall be held for the sole purpose of meeting disbursements for pensions and other payments authorized by this Ordinance and shall be used for no other purpose whatsoever.

3. The description of the various funds of the retirement system, namely, the members deposit fund, the pension reserve fund, and the expense fund shall be interpreted to refer to the accounting records of the system and not to the actual segregation of moneys in the said funds of the system.

(dd) Trust Agreement. The Board of Trustees is authorized, with the prior approval of the Council, to establish a retirement trust in order to finance the benefits to be provided under the retirement system created and established by this Ordinance, and in so doing, to execute a legal document, with the consent of the Council, establishing such retirement trust. Such trust indenture shall include reasonable rules and regulations consistent with this Ordinance in order to provide for any administrative procedures not covered by this Ordinance, including procedures to be utilized if all or a portion of the funds are to be invested with an insurance company. Such trust indenture may include other provisions deemed necessary for the satisfactory administration of the retirement system created and established by this Ordinance.

(ee) Allowance of Regular Interest. All interest and other earnings on moneys and investments of the retirement system shall be credited to an investment income account. The Board of Trustees shall, at the end of each fiscal year, allow and credit regular interest computed on members' individual balances in the members deposit fund at the beginning of such fiscal year; and on the mean balance in the pension reserve fund. Any excess interest earnings may be used to provide contingency reserves or may be credited to the pension reserve fund, as the Board shall determine.

(ff) Method of Making Payments. All payments from moneys of the retirement system shall be made by the Village Treasurer in accordance with Charter provisions governing payments from the Village's general fund. Provided, that such payments shall be made only upon authorization signed by two (2) persons designated by the Board of Trustees. No such authorization for payment shall be executed unless the payment was previously approved by a specific or continuing resolution adopted by the Board.

(gg) Assignments Prohibited. The right of a person to a pension, to the return of accumulated contributions, the pension itself, any optional benefit, any other right accrued or accruing to any member, retirant, or beneficiary under the provisions of this Ordinance and the moneys belonging to the retirement system shall not be subject to execution, garnishment, attachment, the operation of bankruptcy or insolvency laws, or any other process of law whatsoever, and shall be unassignable, except as is specifically provided in this Ordinance, subject to Chapter 38 of the Michigan Compiled Laws and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Provided, that should a member be covered by a group insurance or prepayment plan participated in by the Village, and should he be permitted to, and elect to, continue such coverage as a retirant, he may authorize the Board of Trustees to have deducted from his pension the payments required of him to continue such group insurance or prepayment plan; provided, further, that the Village shall have the right of set off for any claim arising from embezzlement by or fraud of a member, retirant or beneficiary. {Ord 315; 8-16-03}.

(hh) Errors. Should any change or error in the records of the Village or the retirement system result in any person receiving from the system more or less than he would have been entitled to receive had the records been correct, the Board of Trustees shall correct such error and as far as practicable shall adjust the payment in such manner that the actuarial equivalent of the benefit to which such person was correctly entitled shall be paid.


(ii) Penalties. Whoever with intent to deceive shall make any statement or report required under this Ordinance which is untrue, or shall falsify or permit to be falsified any record of the retirement system, or shall otherwise violate the provisions of this Ordinance, with intent to deceive, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and fined not to exceed One Hundred Dollars ($100) or shall be imprisoned for ninety (90) days, or both, in the discretion of the court, together with payment of costs of prosecution.
