The mission of the Firefighters and EMS Fund is simple: to provide a grassroots voice for firefighters across the country in the state and local political process.
Our mission begins by supporting ballot initiatives and working to elect political leaders at the state and local level that understand our firefighters’ and public safety officers’ interests. We don’t just want to start the discussion on issues affecting American’s firefighters and EMS technicians, we seek to use political action to solve the very real problems that have made firefighters’ and first responders’ jobs more dangerous and thankless.
