Program areas at Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation

Burn survivor support program: we support burn survivors of all ages and in all stages of recovery. Our deep commitment to supporting burn survivors goes back to the very beginnings of our organization. In more than three decades of work, we have discovered over and over that those with life-altering burn injuries are victors not victims. From bike rides and golf invitationals to youth leadership opportunities and our signature summer camp for burn-injured youth, we work tirelessly and in partnership with burn centers across the state to deliver much needed continuation of care that help those we serve to not just survive but thrive.
Fire protection: preventing fires and burns through education and risk mitigation.we've proven that Fire safety and prevention programs work: over the past 30 years, the number of Fire related deaths in Wisconsin has been cut in half and deaths among children have been reduced by more than 80%. Still, significant risks remain. Smoke alarms save lives, yet too many people live without working alarms. Escape plans help people prepare, yet busy families often fail to check this item off the to do list. The synthetic materials that now make up our homes and furniture mean a house can be engulfed in as little as three minutes, but people too often think "it won't happen to us." The Fire Fighters Foundation's focus on education and risk mitigation helps educate children, families and communities that, while the risk is real, there are simple steps we can all take to help build strong, safe communities all across Wisconsin.
Fire fighter and community support: building strong communities. Our vision is for all those we serve to be healthy, safe and supported in their lives and in their communities. So, while we graciously acknowledge the ongoing support of our generous volunteers, donors, partners and sponsors, the Fire Fighters Foundation also gives small grants, sponsorships, donations and more to worthy organizations around the state.when those who protect and serve are in need, the Fire Fighters Foundation will be there. Fire Fighters work in the heart of every community every day to keep those they serve safe. When Wisconsin's Fire Fighters are facing physical or mental health issues, personal tragedy or loss, or other challenges, it is our duty and our honor to help our brothers, sisters, families and communities in need. Fire fighter support programs include, but are not limited to: disaster assistance, Wisconsin state Fire fighter'Fighters's memorial support and Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin honor guard.
