COVID-19 Relief and Resiliency Fund
In March 2020, the LA County Fire Foundation launched the LACo Fire COVID-19 Relief and Resiliency Fund to address needs our first responders identified in the communities we serve. In its first six months the fund provided masks, sanitizer, cleaning products and raised $100,000 for equiptment and software needed to implement new retooled electronic patient record devises (ePCRs) with telehealth access on all LA County Fire paramedic units. This equiptment and software facilited: 1)better patient care through access to resoures and doctors, 2)increased efficiency through the intuative portal and access to patient's prior records.
In October 2020, our telemedicine program won the California State Association of Counties Merit Award.
- Since then the program has been expanded and we are $65,000 in donations away from full implementation. We hope you will consider supporting this important program.
Big thank you to our many COVID-19 fund donors including: Metobolic Studio, Wells Fargo, State Farm, General Devices and T-mobile.
