The California Fire Foundation participates in and hosts a variety of important, annual and other events throughout the year.  Please read below for additional information and details.

Annual California Firefighters Memorial

In the autumn of each year, the California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony honors fallen firefighters and their families, and performs the sad task of adding new names to the Memorial Wall. The ceremony features a moving uniformed firefighter procession, personal tributes and the presentation of a U.S. flag to the families of those whose names are newly added to the Memorial. The ceremony has become a touchstone for the profession, and a chance for firefighters, families and ordinary citizens to grieve and remember together.

The 16th Annual California Firefighters Memorial Ceremony will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018.  Find out more about this year’s Memorial Ceremony HERE.

Annual California Fire Foundation Gala

Each year, the California Fire Foundation hosts its signature Uncommon Courage Gala in the Los Angeles area in order to raise money for its critical programs.  Find out more about current and previous Galas HERE.
