The IAFF Charitable Foundation supports IAFF members and their families in their time of need, promotes fire and burn prevention, advocates for fire fighter health and safety, and provides public education on how to prevent and recover from burn trauma.

Our roots are in the almost 100-year history of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), which has always made charitable efforts a cornerstone of its mission. Fire fighters and paramedics work long shifts, put their lives on the line, and answer calls for all kinds of emergencies, and it is the IAFF’s job to protect and defend these brave men and women as they do their jobs.
