It started off in 2012 as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season (Black Friday and Cyber Monday) and has grown immensely thanks to social media and the public's interest in helping those who help others.
The U.S. First Responders Association (USFRA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization comprised of a network of colleagues from Law Enforcement, Fire-Rescue, EMS as well as all divisions of the military. Our organization is one of the few national nonprofits that embrace all aspects of first response.
USFRA’s goal is to work together to strengthen safety initiatives, develop enhanced training programs and combine efforts to maximize community outreach programs focusing on fire life safety, crime awareness and disaster preparedness.
Long term goals include educational programs for youth and assistance with displaced veterans.
If you'd like to support our current programs as well as a new Fire Extinguisher and Smoke Detector program to help our nation's aging community when disasters strike, please consider donating to USFRA.
Any amount is appreciated and tax deductible ... and donations of $5 or more will receive a USFRA decal for your car or place of business!
Thank you for your interest and support!
