Fire Strikes Suddenly

Where does a family get help if their home is destroyed?

During a house fire, adults and children must leave a burning home without hesitation. They must leave behind all material possessions. During this time, food, clothing, coats, shoes, and a place to sleep are immediate needs of fire victims.

The Boise Firefighters Burnout Fund was established October 7, 1964 by Boise Firefighters Local Union members during Fire Prevention Week. The Boise Firefighters Burnout Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit function of the Boise Firefighters Local 149 and offers assistance to families whose homes are destroyed by fire.

“Thank you so very much for your compassion, service and thoughtfulness. Our family suffered a large home & garage fire on the night of June 26th. While we were navigating the flood of emotions your service & staff were great at getting our minds, hearts and priorities put in order. We used the money in the following days to get the necessities to get us back on track. I am happy to report we are doing well, looking forward and getting everything back into place. Thank you again. You all helped us more than you will know.”
