Empowering the Community & You

The mission of the Black Fire Brigade is to promote and protect the fire service while providing continued education and resources to members along with preserving the history and heritage of the black firefighters.

Keeping Young Adults Driven & on Track 

Our program aims to increase diversity in the EMS and fire safety profession by instructing inner-city youth in the EMS and fire curriculum. This allows them to be directly involved with the community while engaged in noble work and gain their trust and respect. These do wonder to their sense of self.
