Last Call Foundation is proud to be an official partner of John Hancock in the Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program for the 9th year in a row! The Last Call Foundation was founded in honor of fallen Firefighter Michael-Ryan Kennedy, who along with Lieutenant Edward Walsh died battling that infamous nine-alarm fire, March 26, 2014 in Boston’s Back Bay. The Foundation was born of the determination to ensure that tragedies such as that one never happen again. The Mission of the Last Call Foundation is to provide funding, education and research to advance the safety needs of the firefighting community. Through the determination of Team LCF Runners, and the generosity of their donors, Last Call Foundation has been able to award grants to fire departments across the Commonwealth for a whole host of issues such as:
What Last Call Foundation is currently funding:
LCF will be announcing our new needs-based “Fire Attack Hose” matching funds program. Having gifted funds to Boston Fire Department and Fall River Fire Department for this life saving hose LCF is eager to help provide this vital firefighting hose to fire
departments everywhere. LCF provides grants to fire departments for any important unfunded health or safety equipment.
At LCF we continue our efforts to keep the rank-and-file firefighter educated and informed about cancer on the job with the latest information, through a program funded by Last Call Foundation and developed by DetecTogether specifically for firefighters. This year’s new “Response Time Matters” program will be available online as well. Last Call Foundation supports firefighters' participation in establishing and updating safety standards. This
program offers the financial support for firefighters to participate in the travel required of members of NFPA Technical and Standards Making Committees.
