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.
Our funding begins where the city budget stops.
■Computers and a printer-plotter for the Planning Division to run ADAM software. ADAM analyzes response data and enables the department to make deployment decisions in minutes, rather than the days it took before the software and hardware were available.
■Services of a grant development consultant to assist the department in identifying and writing grant requests to obtain federal funding.
■Laptop computer and accessories to support the Department’s Network Staffing System (NSS), the backbone for tracking member information and sworn payroll.
■Funded two youth programs, Pacific Coast Fire Academy and Crenshaw High School Fire Academy, to provide training and exposure to the fire services to high school students.
■Wildland hose packs for two fire companies.
■Kennels for FEMA task force urban search and rescue dogs.
