The Leary Firefighters Foundation was established in 2000 by actor Denis Leary in response to a tragic fire in Worcester, Massachusetts that claimed the lives of his cousin, a childhood friend, and four other brave firefighters. Watch their story now.
Firefighters never go on strike. As a result, they are often an easy target for government budget cuts.
This is where The Leary Firefighters Foundation steps in.
We help these heroes by building state-of-the-art training facilities, buying cutting-edge vehicles and supplying modern technology and tools to firehouses and departments across the country.
Such equipment not only saves the lives of these brave men and women but increases the odds that they can save ours.
