About Us

Our Community Outreach Program

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.

Some of the many ways we do this include: building handicap ramps at private residences, repairing/providing heaters and cold weather clothing for people that have fallen on hard times, providing food and supplies for individuals that are suddenly homeless due to a fire or just need a little help, contributing to the St. Peters Senior Center’s Home Delivered Meals Program (aka Meals-on-Wheels).


We have managed to make many kids’ holidays a little brighter by “adopting” six families for Christmas every year, and working with local business partners to conduct toy drives that provide a generous amount of Christmas gifts via the other charitable organizations like Youth in Need and Foster Adopt Support Team (F.A.S.T.).  We also provide scholarship assistance to local graduating seniors who have shown a propensity to be of service in the community, and we have partnered with the St. Peters chapter of Disabled Athlete Sports Association (DASA) to supply financial donations, physical space for their events, and off-duty manpower to help for various needs throughout the year.


We’re here for you.  If you’d like more information about the CCFR Community Outreach, to make a donation, to offer an idea about how the Community Outreach can provide additional assistance, to request assistance for you or someone you know in need, or for any other reason really, we’d love to hear from you.  Please email us at outreach@centralcountyfire.org
