Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization aims to provide better tools and equipment to all small and rural fire departments in America. We aim to improve each department we come in contact with.

Our strategies for obtaining our goals is to work with the manufactures and distributors of firefighter tools and equipment to negotiate a lower rate for these products and make our donated dollars stretch as much as possible. We work with other fire departments willing to donate their used equipment and find suitable departments for this used equipment as well.

Our organization works hard to make relationships with the manufactures and distributors of fire/EMS tools and equipment at various trade shows and cold outreach. As we form relationships with bigger and bigger companies, we maintain a good reputation within the industry, making it easier to obtain further relationships. Our small team is very dedicated and we are looking to expand more volunteers to help foster these relationships.

Since being founded in 2014 we have helped 14 different fire departments with tools, equipment, and occupational cancer prevention materials. We have also held 6 different educational classes for local firefighters in our Ohio base area and one in Pennsylvania. We have helped several firefighters who have passed away unexpectedly, been injured, or became sick off the job. Our goals for the future is to help more departments, hold bigger educational classes in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and assist firefighters as best as we can. We are looking at expanding two more chapters in 2019.
