At the heart of every professional firefighter of Central County Fire Rescue is a desire to help others and to serve our community and the citizens we protect. We like to say it’s our job to show up prepared to solve any problem and make your day a little better. After years of putting out house fires and responding to other emergency situations, we realized the need for assistance didn’t stop once the emergency was resolved…that the need for assistance really was just beginning. This awareness led to the creation of the Central County Community Outreach Program, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization that is funded solely through donations and the fundraising efforts of off-duty CCFR employees.
Through the Community Outreach, the Professional Firefighters of CCFR are able to help our residents in the aftermath of large scale weather related emergencies, like the flooding in early Jan 2016, when we provided the resources and man-power to sandbag, pump-out basements, remove contaminated belongings, etc. However, our main mission is to provide assistance to our citizens on an individual basis when there is a need beyond the emergencies that our normal job meets.
