Shipping, Returns & Exchange Policies

See Yearbook, Station 51 & Other Fire Dept product-specific information below the Junior Lifeguard policies




The Fire Foundation is not in the uniform/merchandise business so to ensure the best experience for our Junior Guard families we have hired a third party company to handle orders and exchanges so we can focus on our mission. Please take care to order the correct size.  If you are not sure of the size needed, please drop by a swim test (see dates & locations below) to have the participant try on and verify sizing before making an order.  Due to supply chain challenges we have a limited number of garments in each size and exchanges can not be guaranteed to get the size you need. Items must be returned in original packaging/tags and in new and resellable condition. Female swimwear must have the hygienic seal still in place. See further return and exchange information below.

As a non-profit focused on raising funds to support the Los Angeles County Fire Department and their programs it’s not realistic for us to manage returns. If you have a unique circumstance please email and our fulfillment partner will try to accommodate however please note that our contract with this provider does not include this service and exceptions are discouraged. See exchange options below.




As a non-profit focused on raising funds to support the Los Angeles County Fire Department and their programs it’s not appropriate for us to take on costs associated with cancelations. Our resources need to remain focused on rising money to support Fire Department Programs.  Therefore, should you cancel an order a cancelation processing fee of $6 is charges to recoup the costs associated with looking up and canceling your order.


In Person (all items eligible): There will be at least one "Exchange Day" that takes place at the warehouse of our fulfillment partner (near Long Beach Airport).  Dates will be announced soon. More information will be available as it nears. Cost: $6 for in-person return/exchange.

Note: This is not a Uniform Pickup event.

You must order your program-included uniform through this online store, where it will be sent by mail. While we will be selling all JG gear at the exchange event, there is no way for us to distribute the uniforms included in the program fee - as we do not have access to the County database of who has/has not paid.
