First Responders are there for us on our worst days. The NFRF is a 501C3 charitable organization founded to be there for them on their worst days (Tax ID# 82- 3266569). We care for those who care for us.


On a daily basis, Firefighters, Paramedics, and Police officers witness numerous tragic incidents while on duty. This recurrent, cumulative exposure to horrific events is the reason that more than 20% of First Responders suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Injuries (PTSI). Treatment options are available, but many of them are not covered by health insurance and must be paid for out-of-pocket. Oftentimes, these costs are prohibitive for a hero in need of help and can create obstacles for them to ask for the help. Our goal is to eliminate the barriers and allow them to get the help they need.
