Of those of us who lived through the events of September 11, 2001, none feels the loss more acutely than the loved ones left behind. For all of America, true heroism defined that day. For firefighters, that heroism had been tested before and every day since. Each year, fire departments respond to over 25 million calls.* The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund provides much needed equipment and comfort to firefighters – a place for them and for their families to turn in times of need.
Since the inception of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund, over $1.815M in grants and equipment have been distributed to firefighters, their families and fire departments across the country. With chapters spanning the United States, the fund’s effects are far-reaching.

Help us spread the word
We’re always looking to connect with departments and firefighters who can benefit from our programs and assist with the distribution of funds. We’re also on the look out for departments who can donate equipment and vehicles in good condition.
Our fund is comprised of people who volunteer their time and energy at local tournaments, trade shows, and in countless other capacities. There are lots of ways you can help out both on the local and national levels.
“…the fund delivered over $60,000 worth of surplus equipment…Without this donation, our department would still be using equipment that has long passed its scheduled useful life expectancy…These donations are vital to small rural departments and the communities we serve.”
