“At some point everyone will need the help of a first responder. HFA is here to help those who help us.”
“What HFA provided for the members of Boston EMS and their families after the Boston Marathon bombings is a feeling of appreciation that we could never be able to pay back. We are forever grateful. Today the HFA Fund provides the assistance needed to support training, education and equipment needs for emergency service departments.”
“As a former Emergency Medical Dispatcher/911 Call taker, Hero Fund America has given me a purpose. I have watched First Responders struggle on a daily basis with faulty equipment or lack of training due to budget restrictions. I can now give back and raise money to give them what they need so they can focus on being our heroes.”
“The work of first responders is imperative to our mission of keeping children safe in their home communities. Hero Fund America’s dedication to providing grants for training and equipment to these warriors is an essential part of creating a better future for our youth and families.”
“Thanks to Hero Fund America, our police department was able to purchase first aid kits for our campus patrol units, which will help to assure the safety of our students, faculty and staff on campus.”
