FirefighterAid is a 501(c)(3) fund managed by San Diego Fireman's Relief Association. Our mission is to provide charitable assistance to Firefighters and their families in times of need and to promote awareness of Firefighter health and safety issues and the impacts they have upon their families and communities. 


FirefighterAid is supported entirely by donations from SDFRA members and the general public. We need the support of our community to continue caring for Firefighters and their families through sickness, distress, and death. Please click below to get involved. 

The San Diego 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a unique and powerful experience enjoyed by thousands of patriots. Annually, hundreds of Firefighters, Public Safety Officers, civilians, and family members gather at the San Diego Hilton Bayfront to honor the memories of the lives lost on September 11, 2001, and to create an experience you will ever forget.


Our amazing volunteers make the San Diego 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb possible. Without you, the #SD911MSC would not be the powerful and memorable event that it is today. We're are grateful to you. Sign up to be one of our honored event volunteers. 

Many people routinely contact FirefighterAid and ask to volunteer. Therefore, we have created a database of do-gooders interested in stepping up to helping our Firefighters when they need assistance.


Examples of needs include: driving Firefighters to appointments, mowing lawns, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and more. Once signed up, you will receive periodic emails detailing volunteer opportunities. Please, don’t let the fact that you live in a remote location from San Diego be a barrier to signing up, others may live in the same area and might someday need your help.  

Our Firefighters and first responders risk life and limb every day to protect life and property for our community. Injuries and hardships often follow. You can help by making a tax-deductible donation through our website or by sending it to our office. Make the check payable to FirefighterAid, 10509 San Diego Mission Road, Suite F, San Diego, CA 92108

Join FirefighterAid and support our programs in our fight against Firefighter job-related cancers, Firefighter mental health, Firefighter suicide and all that attack our heroes. Thank you for your support and pray for our Firefighters!
