Who We Are
Founded in 2006 by former firefighters and community leaders, the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity based in San Diego, California. The Fire Rescue Foundation provides our first responders with the necessary funding to purchase critically needed equipment, technology, and training required to keep the property and citizens of San Diego and the surrounding region safe from the ravages of fire, natural disasters, and unforeseen injuries and illness. Tax-deductible donations to the Fire Rescue Foundation directly support the City of San Diego’s fire, lifeguard, and emergency medical services.
Your philanthropic investment in our Fire Rescue Foundation, helps our first responders to continue to serve our community to the best of their abilities. Whether it’s a fire, a child missing in the surf, a victim trapped in a car during a flash flood, or an unconscious family member, these incidents require skillfully choreographed actions, training, and knowledge by our first responders.
