Description
 
Under former Philadelphia Mayor Nutter, the Philadelphia Fire Department (PFD) implemented a brownout policy as a way to cut overtime costs during tough economic times and mandated a rotation schedule among firefighters to ensure all firefighters have equal opportunity to work in various assignments and acquire diverse skills. However, this audit report shows that trends in Philadelphia response time data suggest that the PFDs brownout policy only exacerbated the departments already underachieving response to fire emergencies. The effects of the policy, which negatively impacted travel time to fires, has jeopardized public safety. Moreover, despite the PFDs assertions that the brownout policy would lead to reduced overtime costs of $3.8 million, overtime for firefighters actually climbed from $15.7 in FY 2010 to $34.2 million in FY 2014. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
