The Trauma that Firefighters Experience on a Daily Basis Has Long Lasting Implications.
“Firefighters, police officers and first responders who serve our communities are continually impacted by mental and physical stressors during emergency incidents. Suicide is claiming far too many lives in our professions and this generous gift to our fire agency will bolster our mental wellness program which provides professional help for any fire district employee seeking this critical help. Our mission is to take care of our people so that in turn they can take care our communities, their family and friends with a positive healthy mind.
The San Diego Regional Fire Foundation has been so instrumental in seeking funding towards priority projects for so many agencies. The Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District appreciates the work invested by the San Diego Regional Fire Foundation and to the many donors who support all of us”
Dave McQuead, Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District Fire Chief.
The San Diego Regional Fire Foundation presented a donation of $3,000 to the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District on August 25, 2022 directed to their Fire District’s Mental Wellness Program.
