L.A. City Fire Department officials are re-assigning some on-duty personnel to work certain Dodger baseball games.

That has drawn criticism from some who say the plan depletes city resources. One fire commissioner says if the Dodgers can spend millions on players, they should be able to pay more for emergency personnel.

But fire department officials disagree, saying helping protect the large ballpark crowds is part of the department's mission.
