Our Story

Let’s Get Acquainted!

WE STARTED

IN A FIRE STATION GARAGE…SERIOUSLY.

Apple started in a garage. Google started in a garage. HP started in a garage. MySafe:LA did too. We developed the idea while standing in the apparatus bay of a fire station – the apparatus bay is just like a garage, but is bigger as it houses fire engines. Our idea was pretty big, too. Create a non-profit organization, create private/public partnerships, and deliver the best possible public safety services to the community.

We’ve been doing this for a decade now, and while our programs have evolved quite a bit, our mission remains the same:

Deliver fire and life safety programs, engaging people to create a safer community.

It’s really that simple.

Community Risk Reduction

Our team focuses on studying a community, identifying risks, and evaluating those risks. Then we develop and deploy risk-reduction programs that help people within that community be better prepared.

Professional Management

Our Managing Director and Executive Officer is David Barrett. He has nearly 30 years of experience as a Chief Executive Officer and entrepreneur. His management team includes fire officers, educators, physicians, and communications experts.

Collaborative Engagement

Our programs take nationally recognized concepts in fire and life safety and localize them for better community engagement. We partner with fire departments and other agencies to ensure we’re sharing expertise, not duplicating it.

To Succeed, We Need Your Help!

We can’t do it without you.

MySafe:LA takes no money from the Los Angeles Fire Department or the City of LA. We pay for all of our programs and operating expenses through grants and gifts. We exist because of people like you – thoughtful, caring, and community-minded. We donít ask for much. A donation of $10, $25, or $50 can help us reach the kids and older adults most at-risk on our community.
