Greater Tucson Fire Foundation
Organizations and/or Associations Non Profit
The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation works to assist our fire-service community with unmet needs in the area of advanced training, technology, survivor’s help, education campaigns, firefighter health and wellness, and other support services. We are a non-profit organization, dedicated to supporting the 1,700 firefighters who serve and protect more than 1 million residents of metropolitan Tucson. With ever-increasing demands from virtually every sector of the community, local government/fire district budgets seldom adequately fund more than bare necessities. Local jurisdictions’ priorities are to keep firehouse doors open, minimally maintain and train enough firefighters to serve the area’s growing population, and provide a support structure enabling firefighters to respond in a timely and efficient manner. Unfortunately, advances in technology and new equipment demands frequently go unmet or are delayed.
