As part of our ongoing support for the Los Angeles Fire Department, MySafe:LA is busy preparing for Fire Service Recognition Day. On May 10th, every LAFD fire station will open its doors to invite the public in for a visit. It’s a terrific opportunity to meet the men and women of the Department, and to learn how they work diligently to save lives and property.
This year, MySafe:LA instructors will be teaching fire safety, hands-only CPR, and distributing FREE smoke alarms to people who need them. There are plenty of places to visit with the LAFD across the city. Our instructors will be at the following fire stations:
Fire Station 27 (Hollywood)
Fire Station 88 (Sherman Oaks)
Fire Station 65 (Watts) — CANCELLED
Fire Station 63 (Venice)
Fire Station 112 (San Pedro)
If you live close to Hollywood, come early and enjoy a fantastic pancake breakfast. The Los Angeles Fire Department Historical Society is one of the coolest places any kids would ever want to visit – and this Saturday, they’ll be serving up a bunch of great food. The LAFD Historical Society and Museum is directly adjacent to Fire Station 27.
In the complex environment that is Los Angeles, this is a particularly important opportunity for you and your family to spend some time with firefighters. The LAFD has lost hundreds of firefighter positions due to the economic problems of a few years ago. As a result, firefighters are working longer hours and doing more with less. Soon, new recruits will begin to report to new assignments in fire stations, but until then, they need to know that you support them, so make sure you grab the family and spend some time with the LAFD this coming Saturday.
