TITLE
RESOLUTION UPDATING PROVISIONS OF IMPLEMENTING ORDER 7-33 RATES FOR FIRE RESCUE OFF-DUTY SERVICES

BODY
WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) Special Events Bureau provides an important service by dedicating personnel and equipment to an event, thus ensuring regular on-duty personnel are not diverted to provide support; and
WHEREAS, the current rates for special off-duty fire rescue services were approved by the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners in July 2010 and are updated in the amended Implementing Order,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board approve Implementing Order 7-33, Rates for Fire Rescue Off-Duty Services, as attached hereto, authorizing the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department to update the current off-duty pay rate schedule.

HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairperson Joe A. Martinez,
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Amending Implementing Order 7-33: Rates for Off Duty Fire Rescue Services

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board approve the attached resolution amending Implementing Order 7-33, to approve the bi-annual update of Fire Rescue off duty pay rates.

Scope
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue performs off duty services throughout the Fire & Rescue Service District and Countywide.

Fiscal Impact
The change in current off duty pay rates is consistent with the change in the Consumer Price Index and the dollar value difference will vary based on the number of total events. The change in administrative fee will produce an estimated $72,000 in additional revenue that will be used to offset the higher off-duty salaries paid to MDFR employees.

Track Record/Monitor
The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Special Events Bureau closely monitors all off duty services.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department (MDFR) provides off-duty services at various special events throughout Miami-Dade County. The MDFR Special Events Bureau provides an important service by dedicating personnel and equipment to an event; thus ensuring regular on-duty personnel are not diverted to provide support. The fees and charges to reimburse personnel and equipment costs are regulated by Implementing Order 7-33. The current rates for special off-duty fire rescue services were approved by the Board in July 2010 and are updated in the amended Implementing Order. For the Miami-Fort Lauderdale metropolitan area, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics determined that from October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2011 inflation increased by 5.0 percent.

The amended Implementing Order also incorporates the existing language from the International Association of Firefighters Local 1403 collective bargaining agreement to increase personnel rates by $3.00 per hour for events at Sun Life Stadium and Homestead Motor Speedway with an attendance of 40,000 or more patrons. This language has been included in the collective bargaining agreement since July 2004 but was never added to the fee schedule. The equipment charge for motorcycle teams has been eliminated since MDFR no longer provides that service, and a fee for personal watercraft equipment used by lifeguards has been included.

In Fiscal Year 2010-11, the MDFR Special Events Bureau provided services and billed customers for approximately $1.64 million to reimburse for County personnel and equipment costs and $164,000 in administrative fees.
