Public safety is the most important function of city government. Protecting all of us, preventing disasters and taking care of us when they occur is the work of the Fire Department. The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation helps our firefighters and paramedics serve us with courage, integrity and pride.
We are a support group, providing financial support and community backing to the men and women who serve us. Your support at ANY level tells the members of LAFD that we care about the work they do for us. More importantly, providing essential equipment, technology and training keeps our world-class Fire Department at the top of its ability to serve.
