The Foundation’s mission priorities include: Maintaining Financial Stability Increase assets Provide emotional and financial support to Roswell public safety employees and their families As these men, women and families have so selflessly sacrificed for us, we will always be grateful.

History of Roswell Fire and Police Foundation

History

The Roswell Fire and Police Foundation (RFPF) was organized in the Fall of 2004 when a Roswell firefighter and his son were seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident. While the Roswell firefighters eagerly pitched in to help the family there was no organization to their efforts. The RFPF was founded to bring together the wide variety of resources available in the department to help the family through their crisis.


The Roswell Fire and Police Foundation has since provided over $90,000 of financial assistance and services to various public safety families in their time of need.


In addition to financial assistance, the Roswell Fire and Police Foundation has helped families of injured public safety personnel by providing much needed domestic services like maid services, babysitting services, meals and even transportation to and from doctor offices and clinics.

Why we do this

Why we do this

Firefighters and police officers realize from the start that they will not get rich in the career paths they chose so they augment their salaries by working part-time jobs. While the benefits of their primary job covers medical expenses and sick leave covers primary income, an injured firefighter or police officer lose their part-time earnings and in many cases this places a strain on the families' financial stability. In these cases Roswell Fire and Police Foundation assesses the families' financial status and provides the financial assistance to maintain financial stability. In cases where the firefighter or police officer dies from an injury or illness, the RFPF provides immediate financial relief to cover the family's immediate needs.


In addition to financial assistance, the Roswell Fire and Police Foundation assigns a Family Liaison Officer to coordinate other needs the family may have. The Family Liaison Officer inquires what the family needs to ensure normal domestic chores are completed, children have rides to extracurricular activities, and transportation is readily available to and from doctor visits. While many of these services are provided by other firefighters, police officers or their spouses, Roswell Fire and Police Foundation contracts with local vendors to provide other services such as maid services, lawn care services and meals. Some of these services are either donated or given at a discount rate.
