Our Mission: Saving lives through education, engagement, and partnerships
On a winter’s day in 2003, two of our founding officers were sitting in a fire station discussing fire safety education. MySafe:LA’s first classes began in 2008, in partnership with the LAUSD. What started out as a fire safety program for 4th and 5th grade students is now a nationally recognized public safety organization.
Mission Statement: To save lives through education, engagement, and partnerships. We teach the public about fire and life safety, surviving earthquakes, and engage with firefighters to help them perform at their best. We partner with a growing number of agencies so that we may contribute to a more resilient city.
Meet Erica. Her family lives in a small home in the flatlands of the San Fernando Valley, very close to the L.A. River. MySafe:LA is teaching young people like Erica and her family to be prepared for El NiÒo, earthquakes, fire, and other disasters. †We need your help to reach tens of thousands of students and older adults in Los Angeles. Please join our support team with a generous donation. Letís keep Erica and her family safe. Let\’s make Los Angeles a safer, more resilient community.
“We provide fire and life safety education and training, yet take not one dollar from our fire department partners. As such, we rely on grants and gifts to fulfill our mission”
