Where does a family get help if
their home is destroyed?

Fire Strikes Suddenly

During a house fire, adults and children must leave a burning home without hesitation. They must leave behind all material possessions. During this time, food, clothing, coats, shoes, and a place to sleep are immediate needs of fire victims.

The Boise Firefighters Burnout Fund was established October 7, 1964 by Boise Firefighters Local Union members during Fire Prevention Week. The Boise Firefighters Burnout Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit function of the Boise Firefighters Local 149 and offers assistance to families whose homes are destroyed by fire.
