The Pasadena Fire Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the safety and well-being of the people of Pasadena through support of the educational programs, services, and community involvement of the Pasadena Fire Department.
In addition to fire fighting, emergency response and paramedic services, the Pasadena Fire Department offers year-round trainings and educational programs to teach children, youth, and adults about fire prevention, personal safety, and disaster preparedness, in addition to working with related charities and volunteer organizations. Through these efforts, more and more people become ready and aware to survive major catastrophes, give their support for victims, and live safely day-to-day.
The Pasadena Fire Foundation works closely with the Pasadena Fire Department to support and expand such vital programs to help ensure accessibility for all members of our community, generate awareness for fire prevention and life safety education, and create more programs where needed. The Pasadena Fire Foundation also provides a way for community members to show their support of these programs and services through involvement, input, and financial gifts.
"Creation of the Pasadena Fire Foundation has been a long time goal and one of the Fire Departmentís key 2010 Strategic Plan priorities. This Foundation will facilitate enhancing community outreach programs; allow us to focus on youth participation in the fire service; and take community involvement, training, and preparedness opportunities to a new level. Please join me in supporting the Pasadena Fire Foundation, which is recognized as a California nonprofit public benefit corporation. I thank you for the encouragement that you provide for the men and women of the Pasadena Fire Department each and every day."
