Helping Firefighters During Unforeseen Circumstances
In particular, the Foundation shall provide to San Antonio firefighters and others not necessarily associated with the Foundation (firefighters from other cities coming to San Antonio for medical attention, for example) who, because of unforeseen circumstances (such as a cancer diagnosis, other diseases, debilitating injury on the job, etc.), need assistance.
Through community involvement, the Foundation will provide a receptacle for supporters with like-minded goals. The Foundation will extend beyond fraternal membership in support of the community we serve and prove a positive image of firefighters.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." -- John 15:13
