Firefighters without Borders will be deploying once again the second week of April, 2023 to help our brothers and sisters in San Jose Iturbide Mexico. Members of the Santa Isabel Villa Nueva, Guatemala will be traveling to Mexico to participate in the training. During our deployment, we will be delivering training on: Fire Suppression, Hose Management, Ladders, Vehicle Extrication, and Rope Rescue, to approximately 40-50 firefighters. FFWBCA needs your support to make this deployment successful, since we are 100% volunteer-based, and our only income comes from donations like yours! Thank you in advance for your continued support.

As a local business owner or a Citizen you have probably seen your local fire department engines pass by your store front. What you may not know is, the firefighters who you see helping our community also dedicate their time to helping firefighters in other countries. For the past 13 years, groups of various local firefighters have traveled to countries such as, Peru, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras! This “group” has developed a strong passion for contributing their time to these deployments. It wasn’t until recently we decided to turn our group into an official non-profit organization our 501C3 tax exemption 84-4844667.
We have been 100% funded by our own volunteers contributions and the donations from our community. We are now able to offer a tax exemption on any donations you make. Our mission needs your contributions to continue supporting our brothers and sisters in much needed communities. We are asking for any contribution you may be willing to donate to help us fund our upcoming deployments.
At Firefighters Without Borders CA Inc., it takes a lot of support from partners like you to achieve our mission
Thank you for considering donating to a wonderful cause. Donations can be made through the gofundme link on our webpage,
