The mission of The Friends of the Denver Fire Department is to support Denver’s Fire Department by providing public education, through efforts to improve fire fighter safety and quality of life, and with direct resources to meet fire fighter needs thereby improving public safety in the City and County of Denver.
Because of the nature of their jobs, professional firefighters are often the first to come into contact with those who have suffered burn injuries. The Denver Fire Fighters Burn Foundation was formed to help burn victims with treatment, rehabilitation and return to ordinary life.
