BEWARE OF TOWERS!

BEWARE OF CELL TOWERS!

Hazardous LTE cell towers are in the initial stages of being constructed at 87 of our fire stations by the Los Angeles County Fire Department, in conjunction with the LA Regional Interoperable Communications System Authority (LA-RICS), the LA County Chief Executive Office, and Motorola Solutions, Inc. Your Local 1014 Executive Board is strongly opposed to this plan and to the exposure of our members to concentrated radio frequency radiation and its corresponding adverse health effects.

Many members may have seen the contractors at their stations measuring and painting lines for the upcoming installations. Your Executive Board sent a cease and desist letter to the Department on September 2, 2014 requesting the Department stop any further activity to construct cellular and UHF radio antennas at fire stations and administrative sites where Local 1014 bargaining unit represented members work.

At the 2004 International Association of Fire Fighters convention in Boston, Massachusetts, the voting body passed Resolution 15, which directs the IAFF to oppose the installation of cell towers at fire stations and administrative sites due to health and safety concerns. Your executive board will use all remedies in our power to protect the health and safety of our members and prevent these cell towers from being constructed at our fire stations and administrative sites.

Executive Action 352 was enacted by the Department on August 5, 2014 and sent to all stations. EA 352 outlines the Department’s plan for cell tower installation at our fire stations and administrative sites. The Department did not meet and confer with Local 1014 to consider the impact to our members or the health and safety risk factors before taking this action.

If you see activity or construction happening related to cell tower installation, please contact Directors Lew Currier (310) 925-2588 or Steve Dewitt (714) 514-1352 or the Union Hall (310) 639-1014 immediately, and we will keep you posted on the progress of this issue with the Department.

Thank you for your time on this most important health and safety issue.

Your Local 1014 Executive Board
