Members of the United Paramedics of Los Angeles voted to decline to work overtime from July 1 to July 8 and to picket Los Angeles City Hall on July 7 as part of a job action to enforce demands for a contract. Fred Hurtado, UPLA president, said the two remaining substantive issues in negotiations with the city are salary demands and a reduction of the consecutive hours a paramedic can be forced to work.

Four paramedics who have been suspended from the Los Angeles Fire Department for being too plump sued the city Wednesday, claiming the weight requirements violate their civil rights. The four and their union, the United Paramedics of Los Angeles, contend in their U.S. District Court suit that the Fire Department's maximum weights are arbitrary and capricious and bear no relation to their ability to do their jobs.

Members of the Los Angeles Fire Commission reacted coolly Thursday to charges by the head of the paramedics union that the Fire Department has been "unacceptably slow" in improving the city's emergency medical services system. Fred Hurtado, president of the 421-member United Paramedics of Los Angeles, accused the department of "foot-dragging" and repeated his call from last month for the removal of Donald O. Manning as fire chief.

The editorial ("Right Goal, Wrong Approach," Jan. 11) regarding the proposed banning of sexually explicit materials in the city's fire stations overly simplifies a complex and difficult situation. The assertion that banning sexually explicit materials from public buildings abridges the First Amendment rights of individuals to read such materials is specious. To be editorially (and logically) consistent, The Times should re-examine its policies regarding not accepting certain sexually explicit advertising.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics refused to work overtime Wednesday in a job action aimed at bolstering their demands in 2-year-old contract negotiations with the city, but the effect on the public--if any--was not immediately apparent. Fred Hurtado, president of the United Paramedics of Los Angeles, said that volunteers for overtime among paramedics had "virtually ceased to exist" since the job action started.

I read with interest your article "The Bells Toll Often" (Dec. 10). You accurately portray the difficult and demanding work that the firefighters at Los Angeles Fire Station 11 perform with such skill and dedication. Unfortunately, the article hardly mentions the paramedics assigned to Rescue Ambulance (RA) 11. In the article, you share a day in the life at Fire Station 11. However, the day leaves out the workload of the paramedics, when in fact the paramedics went on 17 calls for that day, as noted briefly elsewhere in the article.
