Firefighter Appreciation Month

Firefighter Appreciation Month raises funds and awareness to support firefighters, their families, and the communities they protect. The California State Senate has deemed the month of September as Firefighters Appreciation Month — a month to honor, pay respect to, and celebrate these extraordinary men and women.

Want to show your support of our firefighters? Sign up to participate and #thankafirefighter during Firefighter Appreciation Month.
