This year’s anticipated funding priorities include:
Structure Fire Helmets to replace all existing LAFD structure fire helmets to ensure the safety of our firefighters.
Fast Response Vehicle Converters to maximize the LAFD’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) fleet so they can accommodate the uptick in medical call responses.
Body Armor Vests are used by firefighters when responding to domestic violence calls, stabbings, and shootings.
