The California Fire Foundation was created as a way to recognize the courage of firefighters, and the perseverance and sacrifice of fire victims. Formed in 1987 by California Professional Firefighters, the California Fire Foundation’s mandate includes an array of public education and victim assistance projects:

Firefighter Families. Organize special funds to provide emergency assistance to families of firefighters killed in the line of duty.
Victim Assistance. Provide a resource center to assist victims and families devastated by fire and other major disasters, and organize a special fund to provide emergency assistance to fire victims.
Public Education. Provide information about fire safety and the toxic effect of fires and conduct public outreach and education about fires and fire safety.
The California Fire Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization, operated by California Professional Firefighters, and headquartered in Sacramento, California.
