Fireman's Fund Awarded $6.3 Million to Departments in '07

Fireman's Fund Insurance Company said yesterday that its corporate philanthropy program, Fireman's Fund Heritage®, awarded $6,377,243 last year in grants to more than 400 fire departments and fire service organizations. The money went to equipment, training, and community education programs.

The new equipment purchased with the grants included thermal imaging cameras, turnout gear, extrication equipment, portable radios, ventilation saws, nozzles, self-contained breathing apparatus, and defibrillators, the Novato, Calif.-based company said.

Donations made by the program averaged $20,000. They rangde from $5,000 to more than $100,000; since the program began in 2004, Fireman's Fund Heritage has awarded $16,460,458 in grants. "This is a program that has a true impact, saves lives, and ultimately makes local communities safer," said Danielle Cagan, Heritage program director. "Not only are we out there awarding grants and providing needed funding, but we're working to establish partnerships to strengthen the program and have a bigger impact in the fire service community."

One such partnership with Bullard last year helped Fireman's Fund increase the effectiveness of its grants. With Bullard's special pricing, Fireman's Fund was able to deliver five thermal imagers for every four it provided in the past to fire departments, the company said.
