Who is FirefighterAid?
In 1907, a group of San Diego Firefighters came together to address a growing problem. The dangers of the Firefighting profession claimed so many lives, and the poor families from which Firefighters came could not pay for their own burials. From that early meeting more than 100 years ago, San Diego Fireman's Relief Association (SDFRA) was born.
Over a century later, SDFRA operates FirefighterAid, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that cares for Firefighters and their families in times of need. FirefighterAid is a donor-supported organization and relies upon the generosity and donations of people like you.
Our mission is to provide charitable assistance to Firefighters in crisis and to promote awareness of Firefighter health and safety issues and the impacts they have upon their families and communities.
We offer many opportunities for you to be involved as a volunteer. From fundraisers to cleanup projects, your involvement and support help us aid our heroes and their families.
FirefighterAid is supported entirely by donations. Your support allows us to care for Firefighters and their families when they need us most. We appreciate the support of our community.
