In 2020 the #SD911MSC will raise funds for three charities that strive to serve those who serve in uniform.
SAN DIEGO FIREFIGHTERAID
FirefighterAid is dedicated to helping San Diego County firefighters and their families during times of sickness, death and distress. San Diego FirefighterAid provides practical support services to local firefighters facing job related injury, illness, psychological trauma and disability. Among many other things, San Diego FirefighterAid also cares for the widows and orphans of deceased firefighters.
NATIONAL FALLEN FIREFIGHTERS FOUNDATION
Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the NFFF has developed and expanded programs to fulfill that mandate. The NFFF mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives and work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.
FIREFIGHTER CANCER SUPPORT NETWORK
The objective of the Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) is to provide timely assistance to all fire service members and their families in the event of cancer diagnosis. FCSN also provides awareness to fire service members and their families about the importance of cancer prevention and screening by coordinating educational opportunities with various health programs.
