The California Fire Foundation has joined in a first-of-its-kind partnership with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to provide comprehensive support for local fire departments who lose one of their own in the line of duty.
The National Fallen Firefighter Foundation's Local Assistance State Team (L.A.S.T.) program provides departments and locals with a team of individuals who can assist with every aspect of a line-of-duty death funeral. Funding for this program is provided by the Department of Justice.
In a landmark memorandum of understanding, the California Fire Foundation has been designated as the exclusive administrator of this unique and comprehensive line-of-duty death assistance program for the state of California.
The program is known as the California Last Alarm Service Teams (Cal-LAST).
