The Alliance for Fire Safety:
The Alliance for Fire Safety is a continuation of the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety formed in 1987 after a fifteen-day period in which 20 people suffered a fire related death in the City of Milwaukee, among them 17 children.
In 2015, The Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation acquired the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety with the commitment to support and maintain all the successful burn survivor and fire safety programs the Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety built over the last 30 years moving forward, including: The Summer Camp for Burn Injured youth, Sponsorship of Wisconsin Burn Survivors to attend the Phoenix Society's World Burn Congress, The Young-Adult Leadership Conference for burn survivors, & The production and the distribution of a special fire safety section newspaper that is distributed to all 4th to 7th grade students in Wisconsin.
About Us:The Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation (PFFWCF) is a public charity working to create a fire safe and burn free Wisconsin through four areas of programming; Burn Survivor Support, Fire Prevention, Fire Fighter Support, and Community Support. The mission of the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation is to promote, encourage, and foster fire safety, burn prevention, and public safety education. We support burn survivors of all ages, fire fighters, and the communities they serve.
We are a continuation of the former Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety (WAFS) that started almost thirty years ago in Milwaukee after 3 fires took the lives of 20 people; including 17 children in a span of 15 days. On January 1st, 2015 the PFFWCF absorbed the programming of the WAFS with the promise to maintain the cause and programming moving forward
