FIRE AID was established with core funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) in 2014.
FIRE AID is working with the FIA to find corporate sponsorship for both its core and project work. The FIA has named FIRE AID as its ‘Charity of the Year 2021’.
The FIA is the largest fire protection trade association in the UK with 900+ members. They are a not-for-profit organisation and a major provider of fire safety training. The FIA promote and shape legislation and the professional standards of the fire industry through close liaison with government, official bodies and other key stakeholders.
“FIRE AID is a practical and cost-effective way to transfer equipment and expertise from the UK to countries with serious road traffic injury problems and limited resources. It addresses the critical need to ensure early and skilled intervention to rescue crash victims.”
Saul Billingsley, Director General of the FIA Foundation.
FIRE AID receives on-going funding from our founding member the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST) which supports the salary of FIRE AID’s only member of staff.
EASST is an independent UK-registered charity whose mission is to save lives and prevent injuries by making road transport safer, greener and more sustainable for future generations.
