UPDATE AS OF 3/20/2020:
OUR DESIGNATED PARKING GARAGE IS CLOSED. WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU DOWNLOAD THE FREE MOBILE APP "PARK MOBILE" AND PARK AT THE METERS ON 12TH STREET AND SANTEE STREET.

Our Designated Discounted Parking Deck is at:
1216 S. Santee Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015
All-Day Parking Cash Pay
$5 Monday to Friday
$10 Saturdays and Sundays
The parking deck is located on the SAME SIDE OF THE STREET and within walking distance of our building.
State that you are here to take the "LA Fire Card class" and they will give you the discounted rate.
*** PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU WANT TO PAY ONLY THE $5 OR $10 DISCOUNTED RATE AT THE 1216 S. SANTEE LOT, THE PARKING ATTENDANTS MAY ASK YOU TO LEAVE THE KEYS TO YOUR CAR ON BUSY DAYS SO THEY CAN MOVE CARS IN AND OUT EFFICIENTLY. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PARK ON THE TOP FLOOR WHICH IS THE 2ND LEVEL. THE 1ST FLOOR IS FOR MONTHLY MEMBERS WHO PAY $200 A MONTH. SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS ARE VERY BUSY DAYS, BE PREPARED TO WAIT UP TO 15 MIN FOR YOUR CAR TO BE RETRIEVED AFTER CLASS.***
DRIVING, PARKING AND ARRIVAL TIPS:
LA traffic is unpredictable. There may be road blocks, construction, marathons, marches, parades, accidents, TV or movie filming, etc. occurring the same day as your class. To be on the safe side, generally DOUBLE THE TIME GPS estimates for your commute time to have a better chance of arriving to class on time.
Plan to BRING CASH to pay for parking. Parking is "pre-paid" (meaning you must pay for parking upon entering the parking deck).
Plan to arrive 30 minutes BEFORE YOUR CLASS START TIME to find parking, find the building, find the classroom, take the elevators, etc.
Be sure to read your confirmation and reminder emails sent to you upon class registration and 24 hours before your scheduled class. This is a requirement prior to entering the class.
The classroom doors open 5 minutes before the class time. If you arrive much earlier, you may want to sit in your car with something to keep you occupied. There is no seating area in the lobby or outside our classroom doors.
Plan to use the restroom before you leave your home.
The restroom on our floor is private and requires a key that will be provided to you once the classroom doors open 5 minutes prior to the start time. There are no public restrooms in our building.
TIPS FOR EVENING CLASS STUDENTS: You may park anywhere you like, including our discounted parking deck at 1216 S. Santee. The parking attendants will know you are coming for the class and will leave the gate open for you. We suggest (if possible) that you find street metered parking on Santee Street before your class. Parking is free at 6pm. So you will pay less money and be closer to your car when leaving the class.
We have a great working relationship with the parking manager at the 1216 S. Santee parking deck. However, we are two separate businesses. Please be kind. They have graciously given LA Fire Card students a discounted rate! We want to keep this relationship and discount for you. If you experience any issues with entering, exiting or with any of the parking attendants, please provide us with their name, physical description, the time and date you experienced the issue so we can address it with the parking manager immediately. We can only address issues that are made known to us, and we would like to do so promptly.
