Africa Fire Mission is a 501(c)(3) committed to increasing the sustainable capacity of fire departments across Africa. We accomplish this through training, empowerment, support, and encouragement:
Train – We partner with African governments, NGO’s, missionaries, schools and corporations to provide education and training to firefighters and local communities. We use Community Health Education (CHE) to teach firefighters and community members in Africa to protect themselves from the dangers of fire.
Empower – We work to increase the ability of communities in Africa to respond to disasters and provide relief when disasters occur.
Support –We provide personal protective equipment and communication tools to fire services throughout Africa to allow fire departments to operate in a safer and more coordinated manner.
Encourage – We build the capacity of African fire services so that local communities are able to provide sustainable public safety and disaster management services.
