We thank Toyota for supporting diversity in the 21st Century Fire and EMS field and for supporting our 21st Century Firefighter’s ABCs website.

Without such sponsorship’s diversity would not take place for our diverse youth nationwide. Most of all diversity supports our communities nationwide. Let’s Go Places with Toyota.



With pleasure we accept Pierce Mfg. as our sponsor in support of diverse and low-income youth to attend EMT school.

Diverse youth shall be selected from our six regions nationwide. The future of diversity in the Fire and EMS field shall be achieved in part due to the 21st Century thinking and support of those such as Pierce Mfg.

Thank you Pierce Mfg.

The California Fire Chiefs Association was formed in 1897.

The Vision of the California Fire Chiefs Association is,

“To be the Voice of the California Fire Service.” 

This vision implies an embrace of our values of inclusivity and a sense of belonging, recognizing the vast diversity within the fire service, and who we as an Association, aspire to be.

Our Mission is, “To Strengthen and Advocate for the California Fire Service through leadership, unity, and collaboration.”

Our mission signals our commitment and the focus of our efforts.

This is in part why we are proud to be a copper sponsor and a partner of Firefighter’s ABCs, an organization dedicated to recognizing the need for, and working to diversify the Fire Service, EMS Field and other related disciplines and to ensure that all who are a part of or aspire to be a part of the Fire Service with a focus on the California Fire Service, genuinely feel a sense of belonging and purpose.

When we were introduced to Firefighter’s ABCs, it took only one meeting for us to consider being a Sponsor / Partner.  Thus supporting their goals for diversity in the Fire Service, EMS Field and simply to support diverse youth nationwide regardless of their career choice.

It is through our video platform that we will create F.L.A.S.H. Videos to help achieve and support the goal of providing youth with additional tools for their tool box regardless of their career goals.

Please visit our F.L.A.S.H. VIDEOS and I encourage you to share them with the youth of your community.  Yes, you can make a difference in someone’s life.
