ST PAUL FIRE FOUNDATION

We support the health, wellness, and safety of every St. Paul Firefighter

THE RISK OF BEING A FIREFIGHTER


Cardiac Death 

Intense heat and extreme physical exertion places firefighters at a greater risk of heart attack. 

Cancer

Leading cause of firefighter deaths.  9% higher risk of being diagnosed with cancer than 22% general public  (cancersupportnetwork.org)

PTSD

37% may exhibit symptoms of PTSD including depression and Suicide (National Fire Protection Assoc., npfa.org)


We support the individual firefighter.  We help them to be safe, strong and heart healthy.  We help protect them from cancer-causing agents.   We help make sure they have the mental health resources they need.

Since 2010, The St. Paul Fire Foundation has supported the St. Paul Fire Department with more than $1 million dollars in programs and equipment.
