Join the Team - Be FireSmart:LA!

NBA Champion Lakers Power Forward Pau Gasol is one of the world's most recognized basketball stars. He's also a fire and life safety spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department and MySafe:LA.

The Los Angeles Fire Department would like to remind you that in today's hectic world, your safety depends more and more on your ability to take care of the little stuff yourself. That means fire prevention is an important part of every family's responsibility to each other. 

The FireSmart:LA program is designed to give you the information and tools you'll need to make your home, apartment, or school environment safer from fire. Smoke alarms are critical to this overall issue.

MySafe:LA visits LA schools

Hey Kids! We're visiting schools in L.A. Would you like us to visit yours?

That's right - we're coming to schools all over Los Angeles and bringing your local firefighters with us. We'll show you and your classmates how to create a family escape plan, when to change the batteries in your smoke detectors, and much, much more. And who knows... We might even bring 2010 NBA Champion Lakers star Pau Gasol with us. Pau and his family are FireSmart - and he encourages every kid in LA to join the FireSmart team as well.

If you'd like us to visit your school, please contact us!

And remember, practice makes perfect. So, practice your plan with your family. When you do, you'll be part of the team and we'll all be FireSmart:LA.
