First Responders Outreach

First Responders Outreach

Our firefighters, police, and EMTs are indispensable to the safety of our communities. We provide funds for equipment and training to ensure these heroes can perform to the best of their abilities.

Program Highlights

Heroes Next Door

When crises occur, our firefighters, police, and EMTs put their own lives at risk. They answer the call, rush toward danger, and lead the way.

Tireless Efforts

Oftentimes, these heroes are performing with limited resources. The Gary Sinise Foundation is dedicated to keeping our first responders strong.

Our Impact

The Stories

With the grant we were able to purchase lockers to finally get all of our gear off the floor. For years we have had to use folding chairs to hold gear and hope nothing was damaged. The items you have enabled us to purchase will not only help protect our guys but also help us to better serve the community.
