The San Jose Firefighters Burn Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded by San Jose Firefighters in 1991. We are a 100% volunteer organization of firefighters dedicated to supporting people who have been effected by fire. We support the community with response, prevention, education, and rehabilitation with our donations. We also fund the education of burn unit professionals, and firefighters and paramedics.

The San Jose Firefighters Burn Foundation and "The Brit" in south San Jose are once again teaming up to raise money for
Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and local Burn Survivors!
Brittania Arms is hosting a "Fill-The-Boot" event as well as donating a portion of the night's proceeds to the Burn Foundation.
There will also be a raffle with great prizes and a vintage Fire Engine from San Jose Fire Museum.
The San Jose Firefighter's Burn Foundation is looking for volunteers to participate in a Fill-the-Boot Fundraiser on Saturday, November 29th, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. All the proceeds will go towards the support and treatment of burn survivors. Nurses from the Valley Medical Center Burn Unit will join Firefighters in a team effort to support this cause.
Volunteers will stand at the intersection of Almaden Expressway and Blossom Hill Road in San Jose to encourage holiday shoppers to ‘Fill the Boot'. Members have been approved by the Fire Chief to wear turnouts, uniform shirts, helmets and of course, boots.
