Pau Gasol, MySafe:LA and the LAFDHS visit a local school

Remembering Frank Manwarren Boat 2 Pre-Rehabilitation Work Continues
Pau Gasol teaches fire safety.Everyone knows Pau Gasol of the Lakers! But, did you know he was the official spokesperson for our education partner, MySafe:LA? Today, Pau and MySafe:LA visited a local school in the east side of Los Angeles. The topic: Fire and Life Safety.

More than 200 children (and some parents and teachers, too) welcomed Pau with cheers and lots of excitement. Pau was a terrific speaker. He discussed home safety and reminded the kids to go home and check thei smoke alarms with their parents. He also advised everyone to create a family escape plan. What Pau did that really made everyone smile, however, was to deliver these key messages in both English and Spanish. The event was noted by the media, and Fire Chief Millage Peaks stopped by to say hello to the kids as well. All in all, everyone was eager to hear what Pau had to say!

After the presentation, Pau, MySafe:LA presenters, and LA City Firefighters conducted a series of drills for the kids to watch. Pau also watched as a Paramedic explained what is carried on an LAFD Advanced Life Support Ambulance.

All in all, it was a terrific day. The school got some educational videos and DVDs, including brochures for the LAFD Museum and Memorial!
