The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation works to assist the fire service community with unmet needs in the area of advanced training, technology, survivor’s help, education campaigns, firefighter health and wellness, and other support services.
Vision: To be the premier community organization working to provide access to needed resources for our greater Tucson firefighters and families.
Mission: Assess and respond to unmet needs of the greater Tucson firefighter community by facilitating access to health and wellness resources, while recognizing Firefighting/EMS heritage and culture.
With ever-increasing demands from virtually every sector of the community, local government/fire district budgets seldom adequately fund more than bare necessities. One of the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation’s commitments is to provide a bridge between firefighters’ needs and the limits of public spending.
For more than 100 years, area firefighters have answered the call to save lives and protect property in Tucson and surrounding communities. Today, GTFF serves firefighters throughout Southern Arizona, from the fast-growing desert town of Marana to the rolling grasslands of Sierra Vista, and from Tohono O’odham tribal land west of Tucson to rural community of Vail.
