According to the LAFD website, The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) is responsible for covering the second largest metropolitan area in the nation with over 3,500 firefighters embedded in 106 stations throughout the city. The LAFD responds to a call every 35 seconds, making it one of the busiest in the nation. Despite the breadth and scope of what the department covers, the LAFD often has needs that the city’s budget cannot cover.
The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation (LAFD Foundation) is a non-profit organization that provides funding for the needs of our city’s firefighters. Approximately 97% of the city’s budget for the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) goes towards salaries and benefits. This leaves just 3% to cover the cost of essential equipment, new technology, and training resources needed to keep our firefighters safe, and allowing them to do their jobs effectively.
The LAFD is a full-spectrum life safety agency protecting more than four million people who live, work and play in Los Angeles each day. The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation supports the LAFD in protecting life, property, and the environment by providing essential equipment, training, and public outreach programs to supplement city resources.
Approximately 97% of the fire department’s budget is allocated to personnel expenses, leaving just 3% to cover the department’s other needs. The LAFD Foundation is a non-profit organization that was created by civic and corporate leaders in 2010 to supplement the fire department’s budget by providing first responders with essential equipment, new technology, and educational resources that would otherwise go unfunded.
