We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to keeping communities informed and safe during disasters. Our mission is simple: to prevent disasters from happening and to provide crucial resources when they do.
We believe in doing
The LAIT911 App for Web, iOS, or Android ties directly into Los Angeles 911 dispatch systems and delivers instant emergency notifications directly to your phone, ensuring you stay informed and safe during critical moments.
In addition, we provide on-the-ground disaster response, providing communities impacted by man-made and natural disasters with the resources they need to recover. These efforts include (but are not limited to) deploying satellite communication networks, performing search, rescue, and canteen operations, fire and flood property damage mitigation, and assisting local authorities wherever our team’s expertise is most helpful in that given emergency.
As a non-profit, we don’t have owners or investors. We report to the general public, the State of California, and the United States government. As such, we highly rely on donations and contributions from the communities we serve.
“Every step we take is for the resilience and safety of Los Angeles, ensuring that in times of emergency, our community stands strong together.
