People are dying in house fires in Los Angeles. Half of those people are older adults. The FireSmart:LA program teaches students, families and older adults to be aware of the risks related to house fires. We teach people how to react if a fire breaks out in their home, and how to get out safely. We even offer FREE smoke alarms as part of the program.
Power Forward Pau Gasol is one of basketball’s finest athletes. He is also a champion for children everywhere. As a Children’s Ambassador for MySafe:LA and the Los Angeles Fire Department, Pau has a special message for kids and their families: “You never know when a disaster may strike. Being ready means making a family escape plan and practicing it. Your family is your team. Play it safe and be FireSmart:LA!”
The FireSmart:LA program will help you create a family escape plan, and give you the information and tools you’ll need to make your home or school safer from fire. And remember, practice makes perfect, practice makes permanent! So, practice your plan with your family. When you do, you’ll be part of the team. You’ll be FireSmart:LA.
