About Us

Firefighters without Borders is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting fire departments in need of specific skills, training or resources.

Our Focus

Helping in Canada and Beyond

Firefighters Without Border’s (FWB) purpose is to help equip firefighters in Canada - and around the world - with the tools they need to keep their communities safe. We work with our partners, supporters, and volunteers to provide much-needed equipment and training to communities in need.

A Sustainable Approach

FWB helps to refurbish and repurpose valuable firefighting equipment to help build the firefighting capacity of communities around the world.

As each community’s needs are unique, we work closely with the local response teams to identify the training and equipment needed to protect their community. Then we work with our partners and donors to source essential equipment and deliver the necessary training to meet their needs.

We always ensure that donated equipment is safe and in excellent working order.

Building Capacity

We also donate training and ongoing technical support to communities to ensure they have the knowledge to maintain donated equipment and to expand their fire response skills.

All FWB courses meet recognized industry standards and are delivered in a train-the-trainer format to ensure we help communities build long-term capacity. Learn more

Raising Funds

FWB is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that relies on donations and support from our partners and donors to fulfill our mission. Raising funds and acquiring equipment through fundraising events and our valued partnerships is an important area of focus of our organization.

Thank you to all of our supporters!
