History:The Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin Charitable Foundation (PFFWCF) is a continuation of the former Wisconsin Alliance for Fire Safety (WAFS) that was tragically conceived over 30 years ago after 3 fires took the lives of 20 people in the span of 15 days in Milwaukee, including 17 kids. WAFS served thousands of young burn survivors and saved countless lives through fire prevention and fire safety education. On January 1st, 2015 the PFFWCF absorbed the WAFS with the promise to maintain and improve the cause and programming. The PFFWCF is a independent self-supporting public charity working to create a fire safe and burn free Wisconsin.
