Protecting and preventing disasters and taking care of our community when disasters occur is the work of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD), a job more challenging now than ever. On top of everyday public safety calls for medical, fire, and water rescue emergencies, fire-rescue personnel are working through an ongoing pandemic.
Each day, these brave men and women leave their families behind to risk their lives to help our community. Without question, they are heroes.
A gift to the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation will help provide our fire-rescue personnel with the enhanced resources they need to support our community during wildfires and the hundreds of emergencies they respond to every day.
With your support, we will keep working to make a difference for our fire-rescue personnel by providing funding and resources where there are needed most.
Your gift today will help build a responsible supply of tools, equipment and PPE needed to support our fire-rescue personnel through the current and upcoming wildfires, pandemic and day-to-day emergencies. Resources like disposable gowns, masks, sleeping pads, hand tools, and even meals for crews on battling wildfires.
In the event donations exceed the SDFD's coronavirus-related needs, any additional funds will go toward purchases requested by Fire Chief Colin Stowell.
