The first grant ever received from The Safe Community Project was provided by the late William “Bill” Rolland. He recognized the vision presented of a safer, more resilient Los Angeles, and moved to support our efforts with multiple grants. During his time as a firefighter, Bill gave meaning to the word dedication. During the Mandeville Canyon mudslides of 1969, he was buried alive while attempting to save the life of former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan’s brother. Rolland spent weeks recovering in the hospital, and later received the Medal of Valor. He passed away in 2020, and is fondly remembered for his devotion to the The Safe Community Project mission.

We can’t do this without the help of amazing people like yourself. We truly would appreciate the support.
