Get Fired Up for Preparedness

Los Angeles is prone to many types of emergencies. In fact, the LAFD responds to a 9-1-1 call every 35 seconds. Major disasters - like a wind-driven wildfire - place immense strain on resources and emergency personnel.

Taking simple preparedness steps can help ensure your family's safety, and give firefighters a stronger chance of protecting your property when the next wildfire threatens your neighborhood.

Prepare at Home by: 

  • Making an emergency plan 
  • Building your disaster supply kit 
  • Getting trained in life-saving skills like first aid and CPR 

Help Your Community Prepare by: 

  • Clearing brush and potential fire hazards 
  • Assist elderly neighbors with their preparedness efforts 
  • Supporting our firefighters – Donations help the LAFD Foundation purchase essential tools and equipment, like hand tools
