A San Fernando Valley businessman and former reserve police officer has been appointed to the civilian board that oversees the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Steve Fazio, who owns Fazio Cleaners in Woodland Hills, was appointed to the Fire Commission by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Fazio was a Los Angeles Police Department reserve officer from 1981 to 2011. 

TIMELINE: LAFD data controversy

Fazio joins the oversight panel at a critical time for the Fire Department, which has been struggling for months to provide accurate data on how fast rescuers respond during medical emergencies. The agency recently formed a task  force to oversee how LAFD staff analyzes the millions of records in the dispatch database.
