Take A Walk On The Wild Side!

Come join the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) Foundation for our first annual walk! Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the picturesque LA Zoo—covering 2.2 miles—all before it opens to the public. Participants of all ages will visit the park’s most beloved animals, learning about the wonders of nature as they witness these majestic creatures in their natural habitats.

The morning concludes with a family-friendly expo featuring fire trucks, firefighting equipment, and an array of fire safety activities. Children and families can explore our impressive vehicles up close, and they’ll learn about the vital role these tools play in the safety of their communities.

    How Your Support Makes a Difference

    Donations are the driving force behind the LAFD Foundation's funding accomplishments. Every donation, no matter what amount, directly impacts the members of the LAFD and affects their ability to keep LA safe.

    Donor dollars translate into:

    • Equipment and safety gear that protects firefighters from sudden injuries
    • Tools that help locate, rescue, and administer care for victims
    • Technology to track and minimize wildfire risks for fire-prone communities
    • Programs to safeguard firefighters' physical and mental health

    When you give to the LAFD Foundation, you can do so with pride and confidence. More than $.90 of each dollar funds critical tools, equipment, technology, and training programs.

    Every gift counts. Over the past four years, the LAFD Foundation has provided more than $10M in funding towards high-impact needs.

    Thank You For Your Support!
