COVID-19 Support & Relief Fund

Emergency medical services (EMS) play a vital role in responding to requests for assistance, triaging patients, and providing emergency medical treatment and transport for ill persons.

However, unlike patient care in the controlled environment of a healthcare facility, care and transports by EMS present unique challenges because of the nature of the setting, enclosed space during transport, frequent need for rapid medical decision-making, and interventions with limited information.

To meet this unprecedented need, we have created a fund to help lessen the financial impact of the pandemic. Your donations will help ensure that firefighters and EMT’s get the support they need.
