The mission of the Firefighters and EMS Fund is simple: to provide a grassroots voice for firefighters across the country in the state and local political process.
Our mission begins by supporting ballot initiatives and working to elect political leaders at the state and local level that understand our firefighters’ and public safety officers’ interests. We don’t just want to start the discussion on issues affecting American’s firefighters and EMS technicians, we seek to use political action to solve the very real problems that have made firefighters’ and first responders’ jobs more dangerous and thankless.
The dedicated volunteers and professionals of local American fire departments are often left out of the discussion in our national political process. Of course we revere our military servicemen and women and support our police but unfortunately, the dedicated professionals of local American fire departments are left out of the discussion in our national political process. These men and women serve for one purpose: To risk their lives to save others. Whether the emergency is a house fire, car accident or a catastrophic attack on American soil, firefighters readily sacrifice their own-well being to secure the safety of others.
But when was the last time we heard anyone in government really speak up for these heroes and advocate for their well-being?
That is exactly why the Firefighters and EMS Fund is dedicated to advocating for the safety and well-being of firefighters and their families in our political process. This group of public servants deserve a unified voice in government and our coalition of everyday citizens, public officials and organizations are dedicated to firefighters, the local heroes across our country that require the support of their fellow citizens and public officials.
Our Mission at the Fire & EMS fund is to provide a political voice to the many great Fire & EMS personnel who bravely serve our communities. We work to change that through a grassroots effort meant to empower these communities and advocate for their needs. As a grassroots organization we believe success begins at the local level and believe that can be accomplished through helping citizens make an impact at the ballot box, raising awareness on the issues to local officials, and engaging the public on local issues which affect them and their communities.
If you believe these brave public servants deserve a united voice in our government, we encourage you to join the Firefighters and EMS Fund today! America’s firefighters need our support!
