• SCF Foundation

    In October of 2017, Snohomish County Fire District #1 and Lynwood Fire Department joined forces creating a regional fire authority called South County Fire. Each entity had its own nonprofit organization, and we combined the two to form the South County Firefighters Foundation. We appreciate all of the hard work that the leaders of each of the former organizations put in to get us to where we are today. IAFF Local 1828 members as well as other RFA employees serve on a 9 person board to direct the foundation.

    South County Firefighters Foundation Programs:

    Good Neighbor Program - Some situations require something other than a hose line or bandage. The Good Neighbor Program provides funding for firefighters to help citizens in need -- whether it's purchasing groceries for a family, buying gasoline for a stranded motorist, or meeting some other need they encounter in the course of doing their jobs.

    Taxi Vouchers - Fire Fighters can give a taxi voucher to a patient they take to the hospital good for a free ride home if the patient has no other means of transportation.

    Scholarships - Scholarships are awarded annually to outstanding high school students enrolled in fire service technology classes. We also award scholarships to the annual “Kids Fire Camp” that is put on by South County Fire and IAFF Local 1828.

    Community Service Support - The Foundation also provides financial support for programs that benefit the people we serve including Support 7, Burn Foundation, the Snohomish County Chapter of the Red Cross, Christmas House, and Cheese Burger Babies Foundation.
