Firefighters On Your Side

Every year there are thousands of injuries and deaths due to preventable fires.

As part of its mission to educate underserved communities in California, the California Fire Foundation has developed an award-winning program targeting fire safety messaging in these communities: Firefighters on Your Side.

811 – Call Before You Dig


In December of 2017, the California Fire Foundation  launched its latest in-language fire safety campaign – “811 – Call Before You Dig” – The California Fire Foundation partnered with Pacific Gas and Electric, Sacramento Area Firefighters, Local 522, and Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Protection District to offer pubic service messages in the Mandarin dialect as well as in English and Spanish aimed at preventing accidents while digging.

Through the innovative Firefighters on Your Side program, firefighters themselves provide critical fire safety tips in Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Tagalog, as well as in English. The program also targets California’s senior population with disaster preparedness information.

The California Fire Foundation produces public service campaigns on new topics and languages with the simple goal to enhance safety throughout your community, every day.
