National Parks Lifetime Senior Pass Rate Increase Effective 8/27/17

National Parks Lifetime Senior Pass Rate Increase Effective 8/27/17

Greetings Adventurers!

There are over 400 National Parks within the U.S. and visiting them may become more difficult as entry passes become more expensive. As of August 27, 2017, the cost of the National Parks Lifetime Senior Pass (available to seniors 62 and over) will be increased from the current rate of $10.00 to $80.00.

The LIFETIME PASS for seniors allows entry to more than 2,000 sites managed by five federal agencies, including the 400 National Parks in the US. The pass comes in the form of a hang tag.

PLEASE inform all seniors (62 and over) that you may know of this change, so that they can take advantage of the current low price before the increased rate change in August. Seniors can obtain passes through the National Park website, application by mail, or by buying the pass at a National Park location. (If a pass is purchased via website or mail there will be an additional $10.00 processing fee)

The closest National Park locations that issue senior passes in the Los Angeles area are:
LA River District in San Fernando, CA
Main Office in Arcadia, CA
Please call ahead to the local National Park locations to insure that they currently have passes available.

Igniting a spark for LAFD

Igniting a spark for LAFD

Fighting Fire with Females

Last weekend the Los Angeles Fire Department hosted its 3rd Girls Camp in hopes of inspiring teen girls to pursue a career with the LAFD. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in the intensive and learn about a day in the life of a Firefighter.

Thanks to Civic Youth Leadership Academy I was informed of this event from guest speaker LAFD Commissioner Rebecca Ninburg. I immediately signed up and was very curious to learn that only 3% of women (100/4,000) are in the LAFD. So this particular program is a vital resource for teen girls from the LA area.Over the weekend, we all dove deep into the various tasks firefighters need to know, such as CPR, Climbing an Ariel Ladder, breaking down a door using forced entry as well as going through an obstacle course blindfolded, covered head to toe in firefighting gear: that’s not even the half of it! The skills we gained in such a short time went beyond just the basics to firefighting. On day one we formed teams and stuck together wherever we went; we got to know one another and share this new and exciting experience together.  Collaboration and Communication is what my team “The Dalmatians” achieved.  We were surrounded with positivity and encouragement from the female firefighter mentors.

The Los Angeles Fire Department has a very low outcome of Females in the Dept. This is unacceptable.  Luckily change is happening right now and more women are becoming firefighters as well as girls getting interested at a young age. When I first attended the LAFD Girls Camp I wasn’t fully interested in becoming an actual firefighter but now I am inspired more than ever to become one and serve back my Community!

The mission of the LAFD Girls Camp is to challenge and empower girls by teaching them the skills it takes to be a hard working firefighter.
