The Eric Marsh Foundation is committed to serving the wildland firefighting community
~It is our Mission To assist next-of-kin of wildland firefighters killed in the line of duty and wildland firefighters with PTSD.
The Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters stands apart from other Non-profits similar to us, in that the people involved with our Foundation have first-hand experience in loss of a Wildland Firefighter in the line of duty. We understand heartbreak at its deepest level, and we have the ability and resources to help others dealing with the same loss and trauma.
We are committed to serving those directly affected by wildland line-of-duty deaths and living wildland firefighters and their families.
Our roots are in Wildland fire because we have been on the line and married to hotshots. We understand the community and we believe in and support the job!
Service can mean responding to tragedies to help families. It can mean giving financial support to help ease the burden of the complex situations after a fatality. If you need to talk to someone who understands what you’re going through, we are here for that, too. This is our way of paying it forward.
We offer emotional support for wildland firefighters affected by tragedy or the normal stresses of the job. Working in stride with your insurance, we can help cover grief/trauma therapy sessions.
