NFFF Supports Survivors of All Ages

Last summer, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) had a busy season full of events for survivors, from the very youngest to the most mature. We are very pleased to be able to add an event this year specifically for 18–24-year-olds, which is something we have dreamed of for a long time. Many, many thanks to the volunteers, sponsors, and participants who made these events happen and helped create lifetime memories for survivors of all ages.
