The First-In Fire Foundation recently expanded support for fire stations through its “Firehouse Freezers” program, delivering the first freezer to LAFD Fire Station 94 in the Crenshaw District.
The “Firehouse Freezers” program is an expansion of the foundation’s “Firehouse Dinners” initiative, which ensures firefighters have healthy food to cook and eat during long shifts on duty. The idea to supply freezers came from a desire to help reduce the amount of time firefighters spend on grocery shopping by increasing their capacity to store frozen foods.
The First-In Fire Foundation has received a commitment from Television City and owner Hackman Capital Partners to sustain the “Firehouse Freezers” program and deliver more freezers. The foundation is seeking support from other entities and individuals to expand the program further. Olympia Medical Center has also donated a freezer for LAFD Fire Station 34.
