of the FIRST-IN FIRE FOUNDATION
& Champion for Pet Preparedness
Dedicated to being “Friends of the Fire Department and Fire Service,” the FIRST-IN FIRE FOUNDATION is sparked by a strong grass roots commitment to a well respected tradition of connecting local citizens to their local fire stations. No Station left behind.
Our mission is devoted to friend-raising and fund-raising for the Fire Service and the Fire Department, its firefighters, services, and programs including the Fire Department’s Adopt A Fire Station Program, Fire Safety Education, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and Emergency Preparedness, including Pet Preparedness. Founded February 24, 2008, the FIRST-IN FIRE FOUNDATION is an independent 501 (c) (3) Public Benefit Corporation.
"First-In" is a Fire Department term meaning First Response Area.
