OUR NEW WEBSITE IS COMING SUMMER 2018!
The United Phoenix Fire Fighters Charities (UPFFC) was organized in 1964 and consists of more than 2600 professional fire fighters across the Valley, in Phoenix, Tempe, Glendale, Chandler, Peoria and Surprise.
Since becoming a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, relationships have been built and partnerships established with community leaders, private businesses, citizens, other nonprofits and for-profit organizations to improve the lives of the community we serve. Along with our supporters, the UPFFC has had life-changing impacts on the valley.
As fire fighters, we see first-hand the devastation of raging fires, medical emergencies and individual & mass tragedies. While on duty answering the call, we realize the community we serve needs more than what can possibly be accomplished during our shifts. It is our calling to support, comfort and educate our community to prevent future tragedies. The UPFFC services, support and resources have grown over the years.
Adopt-a- Pool-Fence Program
The Pool Fence Program was established in 2001, after a record number of drownings, condensed to two small zip codes in a community in west Phoenix. The United Phoenix Fire Fighter Community Charities along with several other local charitable organizations, combines to create The Adopt-A- Pool Fence Program, which provides pool fences to families in need. The Adopt-A- Pool Fence Program, which meets board of directors meets monthly to select families based upon their financial situation, special circumstances and the number of children living in the house. Since 2001 the program has installed over 800 pool fences and is responsible for saving countless lives. We will continue our efforts until every child is safe.
