The Fire Foundation was founded to provide our firefighters with health wellness services in the areas of cardiac health, cancer prevention, and mental health support. Today, over half of on duty firefighter deaths are due to cardiac related issues. Cancer is on the rise and is expected to soon overtake cardiac health as a major cause of firefighter death. This coming year, the number of firefighters who will take their own lives will be greater than the number killed fighting fires. We’re here to provide our firefighters and their families with the physical and mental health support they need.
