Every day, in every Minnesota community, EMS responders answer the call to provide lifesaving care and transportation for our family, neighbors and friends; most of which are volunteers. Tim, who was a volunteer firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician was killed in a car accident in 2002. The following year, this foundation was named for and started in his memory.
What We Do
Our Mission is to help build strong, better prepared, and more resilient Minnesota communities for times of emergency.
We do this through
- awarding SCHOLARSHIPS to individuals for paramedic, firefighting and nursing training;
- providing TRAINING GRANTS to Minnesota ambulance and fire services for specific local training needs;
- supporting GRANT requests for children's fire prevention materials, emergency preparedness activities, as well as activities to increase public awareness.
WHY WE DO IT
The need is great for trained and ready first responders and local Minnesota communities with citizens able and ready to help themselves until help arrives. We believe in every community, every neighborhood, every family, and every individual, stronger, safer, and better prepared in the event an emergency or disaster of any kind strikes.
