FUNDS RAISED: All proceed raised through corporate sponsorship, ticket sales, and the silent auction will benefit the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation in purchasing life-saving tools and equipment for our LAFD firefighters.

This year’s anticipated funding priorities include:

  • Specialized equipment and gear for the LAFD Air Operations Unit who conducts brush fire suppression, air ambulance transport, high-rise fire response, and hoist rescues. 
  • Chainsaws and safety gear for brush the clearance crews cutting defensive fire lines to protect neighborhoods prone to brush fires. 
  • Life-saving devices, including LUCAS chest compression devices and structure fire bailout systems, that will drastically improve safety outcomes for patients and firefighters.
