Interactive Map: How Fast Does LAFD Respond In Your ‘Hood?: LAist

The Los Angeles Fire Department’s goal is to respond to emergencies in under 5 minutes 90% of the time. However, a new interactive Google map created by Austin Beutner, a candidate for L.A. Mayor 2013, reveals that the department arrives at its distressed destinations within 5 minutes only 59% of the time.

We spent the better part of our afternoon clicking the blue pins and found the response times in a couple of our neighborhoods none too impressive – 50% and 52% – though one of our locales boasts a 75% response time. Happy clicking!
