Congratulations, Afara! 🎉FIREFIGHTER OF THE MONTH 🔥Firefighter/Paramedic Afara Lalaind

FF/PM Lalaind is at the forefront of the LAFD's effort to help vaccinate L.A.'s dependent and homebound population - mainly elderly and disabled persons without access to vaccine sites.

Although technically assigned to Fire Station 65 in Watts, Lalaind has been detailed to the LAFD's COVID Division for nearly a year.

From March of 2020 through December, she was an integral part of the LAFD’s mobile testing team, working in some of L.A.’s hardest-hit communities.

She is an integral organizer of the community “pop-up” vaccination sites, and efforts to take the vaccination operation directly to at-risk assisted living facilities.

Lalaind dedicates what little free time she has towards her children and family.

She looks forward to rounding the curve on the pandemic so she can resume her carpentry and woodworking hobbies.

Before COVID struck, Afara could most likely be found in her woodshop, or making renovations to her new home.

“I had to shelve most of my projects because there just aren’t enough hours in the day to fight the pandemic, be a mom, and rebuild my fireplace mantle,” joked Lalaind.
