7:00 am
time of employment went from seven to nine days. and as the chief had mentioned, c.d. 1 and c.d. 3 went up, and that was really good for mo morale, visiting the crews and giving them fresh supplies. i put up a picture here of the fire that was on masonic and oak. that was led by assistant chief rex hale that is here today. although it was a first alarm, it was very impressive. we had a lot of fire blowing out the top two floors of the structure, and the fire actually started -- we believe it started in the front doorway. the initial fire tag team went up the front steps, extinguishing fire all the way up. hit the top floor, perfect
7:01 am
coordination with pulling ceilings and the company opening and ventilating and pushing the fire from the inside out. i just wanted to say kudos to those companies. they did a fantastic job. along with that, we had two bay rescues, with one meritorious that's been submitted. two surf rescues. we had a high angle rescue on the golden gate bridge, and we have another meritorious that's been submitted, and a cliff rescue. i'm going to mention lieutenant baxter, cliff baxter. he manages to be two or three places at the same time, but i really want to give kudos to lieutenant chief baxter. they're going to the police department academy, talking to
7:02 am
the protectionabationary acade talking to them about what we need, doing it in a very professional way, explaining what we need in terms of parking, not blocking hydrants, and we're really building a strong relationship with the police department right now, that i really am proud of them for, and that's also with the help of captain hart from the sfpd. we also did 66 outreach in the month of october. that brings us to e.m.s., our e.m.s. from assistant chief sandra tong. you got a very extensive report from e.m.s. 6. thank you dr. pang and yates and chief sloane. that was wonderful. i'll take us all the way because i'm going to respect our time today, but on page 18,
7:03 am
we have the narcan administration. we added a new graph for you up on top, and that's the multiple doses graph. but starting on the bottom graph, you can see we had an 11% increase in the month of october from september. 64 of those -- 64% of those were from the nonidentifiable home address. i've got to work on another name for that because it's so hard to say. homeless. thank you. and if you look it the report above, you can see above six doses, from one to six doses. so of the 155 narcan doses, we had 13 with three doses, and so on, so you can see we added more doses, and that will have to do with, more than likely, the amount that they took or the strain of fentanyl that's out there right now, so we're working on that and trying to
7:04 am
get as much information as possible. so thank you, chief tong, for your report on that. that moves us to the bureau of fire prevention investigation update from fire marshal dicosio. on page 21, total permit inspections completed in october was a whopping 639, and the port, 113. another point i'd like to make is at the bottom of page 22, r-1, r-2 inspections. they're buildings below 75 feet, and buildings with more than two dwelling units. most of those inspections are done at the company level, so
7:05 am
engines and trucks do them. the corridor between engines 4 and 3, and engine 36 are some of our busiest companies, so those companies that are going on calls during the day have to try to knock out five inspections during the day. it's very labor intensive, so fire marshal dicosio has knocked out a great program to try to takeoff the load of some of the inspectors in that area. so in october, you can see they did 72 inspections to help take the load off suppression, and that's been a fantastic program. also, the batallion chief monthly meetings have still been beneficial, so thank you, marshal dicosio. the community outreach, they
7:06 am
had 15 community presentations, and they reached out approximately to 10,720 civilians. the training classes, we had a chance to visit with 4710, which is our arson unit. proved very beneficial. got a lot of feedback. a lot of people are interested in training in inspection and prevention. they did 16 internal training classes. they've developed five new classes, and we are going to start to develop a class now for our disaster preparedness where we take our inspectors, and we can send them out in a large disaster, and the best way for them to help on the disaster side, especially when we have a lot of shelter in place people, we sttell them t
7:07 am
stay in their buildings, we're going to tag them and train them for the disaster preparedness. i'll bring us to the airport division, page 35. thanks to deputy assistant chief kaya lee for the division update. you saw a lot of the pictures that was actually in october, the weapons of mass destruction annual full scale exercise. that was very successful. it was a collaboration of 30 different agencies, and i got a chabs r chance to chance to go out and witness it. the live burn training, they are attending active shooter sessions. we will send you invitations on
7:08 am
the 21st, we are planning on having an active shooter training at moscone center, and we'll let you know when that is. they had a total of 513 dispatches with 244 of those from bike medics. that continues to be a great program. homeland security, you see the many meetings, exercises, and event action plans that assistant deputy chief michael cochran has attended. we have our new mobile command is back in the city. it's stationed at station 38. it's just going through some final updates at this time right now, and we'll be doing some training with that. i have some photographs of the big event and all the hard work that went from homeland security into our fleet week.
7:09 am
i got to knock a couple things off my bucket list. i was involved in the responder fly out, which i got to fly in a helo and land on the u. u.s. somerset. it was dedicated to flight 93, made out of the steel of 9-11. very patriotic ship. you probably remember the term let's roll from the last passenger that says we're going to take and storm the cockpit, so it's a big huge 93 and a big "let's roll" on the side. it was a phenomenal day, and go to go to pier 32.
7:10 am
we had our debris removal plan disaster plan, and that was a success, again, working with the military and then talking about how we're going to have the debris removed from the streets when we have our big disaster so we can get our fire engines and trucks through. our fire island use exercise, we got to use a lot of the military with our l.r.v., light rescue vehicles, and we worked on collapse, using pry bars and cribbing and anything that you can find. that was great training, and i want to thank the squads and station 5 and station 7 for assisting as assistant deputy chief division of training, joel sato.
7:11 am
this was the first year, batallion chief crispin. he was our air commander, and he did a phenomenal job. i was to commend him. he did a wonderful job, so thank you, dean. our maritime operations, just some of the things that -- else we had. escorted the parade of ships, emergency diver stand by, water rescue, event perimeter, and sea burn monitoring. we also had a chance to do 25 soldiers do a ride along with our e.m.s., and that proved successful, and everybody really enjoyed that. also, the drone update for the questions, so we sent out a general order on november 1 for our unmanned aircraft system.
7:12 am
we're calling it the u.a.s. program. the 8 eigth was the deadline t sign up. we're working on this internally, and we want to get everybody certified and get licenses, and the program that we're working on is an f.a.a. certification pretest school. it's two days of class, 16 hours plus homework. after that, a member will take a test in the palo alto-hayward airport. we will be practicing with night flights also. chief cochran is working on the k9 extension. we have three more members that are going to be interviewed to see if we can get them passed
7:13 am
up with the k9s. also, just during the meeting, i want to -- a brief little announcement. there was a line of duty death in worcester, massachusetts, line of duty in the fire department. right before he rescued someone in his crew, he passed away. he was a 19-year veteran, so i'd like to dedicate this report to him. after saving the life of one of his crew members, he was supposed to go to disneyland with his family today, so i'd like to send our condolences from our fire department family to worcester fire department. i got a chance to go to the six firemen that died at the cold house some years ago, and they love their fire department. the parade that they gave for them, i've never seen so many
7:14 am
grown men cry. it was very sad, but they, like i said, love their fire department, so heart goes out to them. any questions? >> president nakajo: thank you very much, chief wyrsch. at this time, i'll ask for public comment. seeing none from the public, public comment is closed. at this point, moving forward for the rest of the comment and questions, vice president covington will chair the meeting. i apologize to the fellow commissioners and the chief of department's command force, but i need to leave, so i beg your indulgence as i leave. vice president covington, thank you. >> commissioner covington: thank you, mr. president. commissioners, chief wyrsch has concluded his report. are there any comments?
7:15 am
>> commissioner cleaveland: i have the ability -- >> commissioner covington: oh, i see. >> commissioner cleaveland: my monitor is not working. >> commissioner covington: commissioner cleaveland? >> commissioner cleaveland: thank you, madam president. thank you, chief wyrsch, and absolutely, we extend -- on behalf of the commission, we would extend our condolences to the worcester, mass, fire department for their loss. i wonder if you can give me an update on the k9 support program. >> the k9 support program, we would like to add two handlers. we have a total of three that have applied. we have to do an interview process. we have the actual handlers that will give us the dogs,
7:16 am
we're going to put them on our interview board. >> i can tell you. steve nicholson. it's the national search dog disaster foundation, they'll make the final determination. acting captain thomas, captain miller, they do hurricanes, and they're available locally. they're looking for more dogs, so they've had informational meetings, told them how difficult it is to take care of a dog, ran through the program, and now we're at final stages for interviews. >> commissioner cleaveland: so you have the ability to have two dogs or you have two dogs currently. it's expensive, $6,000 per dog in terms of buying a dog that's been trained.
7:17 am
>> so the national search disaster foundation provides the dog. >> commissioner cleaveland: with retalking about rescue dogs here? are we talking about -- [inaudible] >> i use the word support because we're supporting this program, so sorry if -- for the confusion. but right now, we have two. if we can pass up all three, we might be lending one of those handlers to oakland. oakland is in need of one of those handlers, so that's a possibility. >> we're talking about support dogs for mental health, for
7:18 am
ptsd. what's the status of that? >> i can speak to that. so our new health and safety chi chief, tasha parks is working on that. she has a lot on her plate, but she's working on that, so more to follow. >> commissioner cleaveland: thank you, chief. >> mm-hmm. >> commissioner cleaveland: okay. that's all my questions. thank you. >> commissioner covington: thank you, commissioner cleaveland. commissioner veronese? >> commissioner veronese: thank you for your report. you did mention that there's an 1 11% increase over the past month, but in the last year,
7:19 am
it's almost a 300% increase. i know that i mentioned this before, but now that we have this information, what are we doing with it? did we notify the department of health so that they know what's going on? i just want to make sure we're making the best use of this information. so i just want to make sure that that's happening. and then, if you could -- and i saw this morning, there was a -- a press release by the mayor's office, that they've reached an agreement with the board of supervisors on the comprehensive mental health agreement, and i'm just curious for a future meeting as to what the fire department's participation in that would be? >> i can speak to that, yeah. do you want it right now. >> commissioner veronese: if you don't have it -- skb
7:20 am
>> i can't remembe >> yeah. in the mayor's meeting, we had the doctor speak, and i spoke with the doctor afterwards, and i said he was going to get -- and he said he was going to get back in touch with chief pang in terms of what e.m.s. 6 is doing around the behavioral health stuff, and we're on board. >> commissioner veronese: yes. >> and in terms of the statistics or the data that we're collecting, we are absolutely using that data with d.p.h. and in conversation with the mayor's budget office. >> commissioner veronese: thank you, chief, for that. and in connection with the wild fires going on -- i think we had a crew up there for a couple of weeks -- or how long was that deployment? >> seven to ten days. it was different for both. we had a couple of cruise for -- seven to nine -- crews for -- seven to nine days,
7:21 am
depending on which line you were working for. >> commissioner veronese: maybe if we could get some more information on when the last time we looked at those length of deployments and whether or not they're appropriate in length. i mean, i'm sure you're constantly looking at this stuff, right? but it seems to me that these fires are different that they were before. they're certainly more intense and they're lasting longer, and i'm interested in the length and adapting to that, if we are looking at that. offline would be fine. >> thank you. >> commissioner covington: thank you, commissioner veronese. commissioner hardeman? >> commissioner hardeman: thank you, madam president covington. yeah, your report -- you just don't want us to ask any questions. you're getting so good, so detailed. the one that's interesting is
7:22 am
narcan, the significant amount of needles that are found on the street. that's one benefit to fentanyl use, but it's also the worst drug, supposedly, so that's not good news of the -- good news. >> commissioner hardeman: -- he was like the guy that probably
7:23 am
new more than them, any way, and everybody -- they would probably admit it if you asked him. but he just passed unexpectedly, boom. what a nice man and what a great person for the city and always level with you, gave you the straight scoop, and if you're a little confused on something, push it right to the edge, he'd always give you the best advice. so maybe we could remember buck also in this. >> absolutely. >> commissioner covington: all right. thank you, commissioner hardeman. thank you for your report, chief. i -- just in the interest of time, i think we need to move onto the next item. thank you again. it was very comprehensive. i appreciate it. >> thank you so much. >> commissioner covington: okay.

7:26 am
take the bus with the big group that came up. any way, it was extremely well done. dave everly and the other powerful persons from the police department and fire department, e.m.s. were there. i think it was 18 or 20 of us, and it was eye opener, not only looking at their museum, which was very good, and the layout and the open space they had, but the plan that the guardians are coming up with, i'm very supportive of. and it's interesting. looking forward to the commission's support. you know what? i told them, i'm going to support you, whatever -- i don't want to write anything. you don't have to -- i'm going to approve what you want to do. you're an independent group of people volunteering, and you want to do -- oversee the first responders.
7:27 am
it's not -- there's -- not necessarily talking about a physical place, hard museum in their ingredient. they're going to explain that to you. it's not my place. i told them i wouldn't explain it, but i think they have a great plan. i enjoyed the day, and i think it's very well done. i think those folks, captain jim lee and others that were involved were really terrific. people gave up a saturday -- very important people gave up a saturday, and i just want to thank them. it's terrific, and i hope the guardians can come to us with a plan that we'll all support them, and the other departments will have the same result. thank you. >> commissioner covington: thank you, commissioner hardeman. commissioner cleaveland, commissioner veronese? okay. well, thank you very much. i think we can call the next item. >> clerk: item number 9,

7:36 am
playground for many years. as district supervisor and now as mayor, she is our park champion and chief. our kids do not need an advocate, because they've got mayor london breed. >> mayor breed: thank you so much, phil. let me tell you, i can't be more happy than to be here today. i remember a couple years ago when we cut the ribbon on the new basketball courts and there were conversations going on and on and on about the playground and the next to do something better. the parents who bring their kids here on a regular basis reflects what we see here today. as much as i love. i grew up in sands, so i'm a big
7:37 am
fan, but the fact is these kids are going to have a great time. we are so lucky in san francisco that we have so many people in this community that are so generous and we're actively engaged to shape what this playground looks like right now. we have amazing contributors who have invested so much money into supporting and making this happen. our incredible partner, the parks alliance, thank you so much for your continued alliance and this playground. thank you were jody pritzer for your major contribution to this project. and brian baker who hosted.

7:41 am
like a tanker in ice. every time we try to do something, it takes that long. this is something that went fast because of community support, because we had private people coming in and saying let's make this work, and we can turn faster than a tanker in ice. thank you, everyone, thank you, mayor breed, and let's play. >> supervisor brown said it perfectly, let's play. the mayor has keys to the city and gives proclamations at the board and we give away park signs to true park champions. thank you for all of your incredible support. [ cheering and applause ]. >> the mayor alluded to the fact that this was a big community
7:42 am
effort. we need partners and friends. government doesn't do it all alone anymore. we need the support. i'm pleased to bring up our closest friend, drew beker. the alliance of parks department have worked together since 2013 or 2014 on let's play s.f. which is our campaign to renovate the 13-mo 13-most-deserving playgrounds around the city. it is a $30 million effort that has a significant amount of public money, but that wasn't enough to get it done. we are the parks alliance and is the san francisco recs and parks department work together on so many things, including our 150th golden gate park celebration. this is part of that. the panhandle itself was practice for building golden gate park.

7:47 am
so steppingstones uses the community for their playground. what a resource to have playgrounds like these. this is an amazing playground just for the preschoolers, but also now that i'm a mom, for communities like this for playgrounds that inspire community and imagination. we were just here in april for the ground breaking, and now it's november and it's incredible. thank you so much, everyone. [ cheering and applause ]. >> before we do our first slide with our steppingstones preschoolers and supervisor brown, we have some gratitude. i need to do some closing acknowledgements. we have a lot of gratitude for all of our supporters. without their help and support as i said, this wouldn't be possible. let me echo my thanks to the
