Supplying Aid to Emergency Victims – The City of Vista Fire Department has partnered with the California Fire Foundation to assist those in need.

The California Fire Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1987 by the California Professional Firefighters. Its primary objective is to provide emotional and financial assistance to families of fallen firefighters, firefighters, and the communities they serve.

One of the Foundation’s programs is Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE), which aims to provide immediate relief and comfort to victims of catastrophic loss due to fires or natural disasters. Under this program, incident commanders on the scene can offer $250 gift cards to those who have suffered a minimum of 25% damage to their place of residence. The program is designed to aid victims of fires, earthquakes, mudslides/landslides, and floods. It is not intended to replace the critical relief services provided by organizations like the Red Cross, but rather to offer an additional helping hand from the fire service during the immediate aftermath of a disaster. One SAVE card may be issued per household. A SAVE card may be issued to homeowners or renters as long as the minimum amount of damage has been incurred. Businesses are not eligible. Read More Here
