The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation provides ongoing support programs for family members of firefighters who die in the line of duty. However, we do not provide crisis services.
It is important, especially right now while everyone is under a considerable amount of extra stress, to know how to access crisis intervention, should you need immediate help. Just like calling 911 for a medical emergency, there is good help available for psychological and emotional crisis points. Please keep this information handy in case you or someone you know should need it.

The Fire Hero Family Programs team is here for you. While we are adapting to these new circumstances, we are researching ways to bring resources, workshops, and meetings to you virtually. In the coming weeks, we will provide resources and information to help you stay connected.
