Shelton -- who worked for the city from 1956 to 1961 and later served on the City Council -- said that back then Newport Beach's population was about 17,000 during the winter, and double that during summer months.

After months of testing out a new call-alert system in the Lido Isle fire station, the Newport Beach Fire Department has seen an improvement in response time and plans to implement the system in all stations. The new system allows 911 call information to get to the firefighters more quickly. As soon as a 911 operator answers an emergency call, preliminary information about the call is sent to the fire station and broadcast on a loudspeaker. Firefighters can then gather appropriate equipment and get out the door between 20 and 60 seconds faster than before, said Capt.
