Ways to Help

Minnesota currently ranks 48th in the nation in per-capita fire service spending, despite being the 21st most populous state and 12th largest in area. To make up for this disparity in funding for firefighter wellness, the Minnesota Professional Firefighters (MPFF), Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association (MSFCA) and the Minnesota State Fire Department Association (MSFDA) together created MnFIRE to rally firefighters – and the people who support them – to gear up for their health.

Your action today will help fund resources to provide programs and services for Minnesota firefighters and their families.

Remember to check the “Make this a monthly donation” box.

If you’d like to donate in-honor-of or in-memory-of a specific person, please include a note when checking out at PayPal. 

In addition to a monetary donation, you can also help MnFIRE in the following ways:

  • Donate Time
    • We recognize the time and energy it takes to achieve our goal of stronger health within the fire service. To supplement our efforts, we will need additional volunteers for upcoming events and promotional activities. We also need volunteers to staff our 24-hour peer support line.
  • In-Kind Support
    • MnFIRE welcomes donations of health & wellness products or services such as FitBits (or similar wellness tools), free or significantly reduced-fee counseling or group therapy sessions, nutritional meal planning services, and more.

Please contact MnFIRE president George Esbensen at gesbensen@mnfireinitiative.com for more information about how you can get involved.
