Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE) Fund

About This Fund

The California Fire Foundation’s Supplying Aid to Victims of Emergency (SAVE) program brings immediate, short-term relief to those who have lost their homes as a result of fire and other natural disasters throughout California.

Frontline firefighters can provide SAVE gift cards, valued at $250, directly into the hands of fire and natural disaster victims. With a SAVE card in hand, victims of disaster can purchase basic necessities including food, clothing, medicine or temporary shelter.

The SAVE program has grown steadily since 2014 and has impacted more than 55,000 victims in California to date. The SAVE program is administered directly by participating fire departments across California each day, and mobilizes for rapid disaster relief when communities are impacted by wildfire or natural disasters. The SAVE program is a reliable way for Foundation supporters to provide direct relief to victims, especially in the first 24-48 hours after a disaster.
