Fireman’s Fund Heritage Program Pledges Aid to Japanese Firefighters

In the wake of the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami, the Fireman’s Fund Heritage Program has pledged up to $5000 in support for Japanese firefighters impacted by the tragedy there. The donations are going to the Japanese Firefighter Association, an organization which donated to 9/11 relief efforts and annually assists with training volunteers. Just ‘like’ them on their facebook page, and they’ll donate another ten cents. Or you can donate directly to the Japanese Firefighter Association via the paypal link on the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC)’s website. From the Fireman’s Fund Heritage Program’s facebook page:

We are deeply saddened by the tragedies in Japan. In addition to our ongoing support for the U.S. fire service, we also want to support firefighters in Japan who are facing unimaginable adversities right now. For each new “like” of our page through March 24th, we’ll donate 10 cents (with a max of $5,000) to the Japan Firefighters Association. Please spread the word.

  1. What a noble move by the Fireman’s Fund Heritage Program. It’s typical of firefighters to sacrifice for the community but this is taking it a step further by donating to people they’ve never met. It is wonderful to see this kind of outreach to those in need and I applaud the Fireman’s Fund for doing so. Nice effort by the NVFC to encourage donations as well.
