    Fire Safety Comes to Your School!

    Visit MySafe:LA dot org.
    Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States, represents one of the most challenging urban communities in the US relative to public safety. The danger from fire, flood, earthquake, and terrorism makes LA a cocktail mix of threats. At particular risk are children under the age of 14 and seniors.

    In 2009, the LAFD Historical Society supported the development of the MySafe:LA initiative. Now its own public benefit corporation, MySafe:LA continues to support the LAFD Museum with special visits and safety presentations.

    One of the most important programs from MySafe:LA and the Los Angeles Fire Department is called "FireSmart:LA." MySafe:LA is teaching kids and their families how to create a family escape plan, where to meet outside in the event of a fire, and much more.

    The FireSmart:LA campaign delivers a combination of public awareness and education using media to a specific group of people living in LA: children 5 to 14 years of age, as well as families. The two target groups make up 23% of the population of Los Angeles.

    When the MySafe:LA team visits your school, they'll bring Los Angeles firefighters with them. We'll show you how to be FireSmart - and we'll bring lots of goodies with us. It's fun, fits into the existing curriculum in your classroom, and won't take much time at all!
