About the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF)

The United States Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to remember America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit foundation has developed and expanded programs to honor fallen fire heroes and assist their families and co-workers. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation also works closely with the U.S. Fire Administration to help prevent and reduce line-of-duty deaths and injuries.
