We believe in change

LAIT911 is an all-volunteer fire & rescue non-profit organization dedicated to keeping communities safe and informed throughout disaster. Our mission is simple: to mitigate the risk and impact of disasters, and provide crucial resources to the community when they happen.

We believe in doing

At LAIT911, we are dedicated to providing outstanding and reliable disaster services to the communities of Los Angeles. Our team, deeply rooted in compassion and commitment, is rigorously trained in Search & Rescue, field medical care, and wildland fire response. We are always ready to respond swiftly to both natural or man-made emergencies, ensuring timely response, and impactful purpose, protecting both life and property.

Our capabilities include rapid mobilization for extensive search and rescue operations and the provision of essential field medical care during emergencies. LAIT911 also operates comprehensive fire and arson watch programs, which play a critical role in the early detection and mitigation of potential wildfires. In large-scale emergencies, LAIT911 has the ability to deploy advanced satellite communications to sustain vital links between disaster operations, supporting government agencies, first responders, and the public, even when traditional methods of communication are inaccessible.

In addition, the LAIT911 team has developed a public facing emergency notification system, the LAIT911 App, available on Web, iOS, and Android platforms, which integrates directly with Los Angeles’ 911 dispatch systems. This app provides real-time emergency alerts to the public, ensuring that residents are well-informed and protected during critical situations.

As a public non-profit organization, LAIT911 adheres to strict oversight and upholds transparent reporting standards. We are accountable to our local agency partners, the State of California, and the U.S. government. Our commitment to transparency and integrity serves the residents of Los Angeles, to whom we are dedicated to delivering reliable and compassionate service.

Every step we take is for the resilience and safety of Los Angeles, ensuring that in times of emergency, our community stands strong together.
