The Henrico Firefighter Foundation was established to aid and assist the Henrico County, Virginia Division of Fire firefighters, first responders, emergency response personnel, emergency medical services personnel, civilian staff, retirees, and volunteers to accomplish the mission of the Division of Fire.

The Foundation assists citizens before, during, and after a time of crisis, disaster, or emergency incident, including immediate emergency relief, monetary support, and education. This is accomplished by supporting all things necessary to accomplish the mission of the Division of Fire, including assistance with ceremonies and receptions for firefighter graduations, retirements, promotions, and recognition programs. Additionally, the Foundation provides grants and scholarships for Division personnel to attend conferences, seminars, training, educational events, and other programs.


The Henrico Firefighter Foundation would like to thank everyone who showed up for Track Laps For Charity, March 13th at Richmond Raceway.  Thanks for showing your “Drive” and dedication to supporting the men and women that make RVA a safer place to live, work and play everyday.  Hundreds of you showed up and ponied up donations for Richmond Raceway Cares and The Henrico Firefighter Foundation.  Richmond Raceway President, Dennis Bickmeier and his team presented a check to the foundation recently and we’ll put those funds to good use supporting Henrico firefighters and community safety initiatives throughout the county.  We encourage you to support those individuals, organizations and local businesses that support our community…there’s no faster way to make a difference!   


Fire vehicles carry gift cards that allow firefighters on scene to provide funding for clothing, food or temporary housing for victims after house fires.


The Foundation can pay for supplemental training and conferences not in Fire Department’s budget.


The Foundation supports the Division of Fire’s Public Education efforts through the following initiatives: smoke alarms, cooking safety, electrical and appliance safety, candle safety, carbon monoxide alarms, heating safety and home escape plans.


The Foundation is a partner in the County’s Smoke Alarm Initiative: providing free smoke alarms for homes without working alarms
