Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Provide equipment and programs that support firefighters, paramedics, lifeguards and the communities they serve.

We listen to our communities and the LA County Fire Department personnel and adjust to fill critical urgent needs.

We are small and mighty. We are able to be dynamic in responding to a rapidly changing environment. Our team has the knowledge and connections to bring in what is needed faster and more efficiently than a large government agency could.

Our We Hear You program gives us constant input on progress as the community and personnel can submit funding requests. Our board and sub committee reviews the requests and quickly funds critical equipment and programs. The number, type and frequency of request serve as indicators on our progress. Additionally, the programs we fund have individual indicators.

We have funded pilot programs submitted through the We Hear You program that were so successful that the department has agreed to take ownership of the projects expansion and future funding.
