Our Events

San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation has several events throughout the year to raise awareness and provide supporters an opportunity to invest in public safety that benefits the entire San Diego region. Funds raised help to provide enhanced resources to support the men and women of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department so they are better prepared to protect the residents and property of San Diego and the surrounding region. Check back often for event updates and be sure to follow us on Facebook for details on how you can attend or sponsor an upcoming event.

Hosted by the Fire-Rescue Foundation, this event honors the men and women of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department who put their lives on the line every day to help protect our community. We will also be recognizing ordinary citizens who have done extraordinary things to help others in their time of need.
