This great video, which is under two minutes long, starts off with one of our central tenets, and that is: access to emergency care for all Americans is one of the most fundamental aspects of our standard of living.

The video goes on to cover some of the other basics; for starters, we are a political non-profit organization organized under section 527 of the federal tax code.

This means that in addition to advocating for Firefighters’ issues, we can engage in the political process to help ensure the best candidates for these interests win office at all levels of government.

We also work to advise local political committees and community stakeholders on how to best pass legislation and ballot measures that will benefit first responders and their families. To hear the rest of our great story, watch this brief video now!

Wildfires in the United States have persistently gotten longer, more destructive, and resulted in untold damages to both property and life for those caught in their paths. Departments and firefighters taking on these massive blazes need support and advocates to make sure their needs are met. And we are happy to announce that in California, we will be doing just that.

Join us in fighting to solve state and local policy issues that impact our firefighters and emergency responders.
