The purpose of the Red Lodge Fire Rescue Foundation is to provide financial and  other support to the Fire, EMS and Search and Rescue divisions of Red Lodge  Fire Rescue and and their respective members.  This support is broad-based and comprehensive, and extends to providing material and equipment support as needed by each division to accomplish its mission, as well as emergency need-based grants and loans to the members in good standing of Red Lodge Fire Rescue.  Annually, the Foundation selectively provides post-secondary school educational scholarships to children of qualified members of Red Lodge Fire Rescue to help defray the costs of post-secondary school education or vocational training.  The Foundation also selectively extends financial support to members of Red Lodge Fire Rescue on a need-basis to enable them to obtain and further their professional training and/or other educational goals.

The Foundation is a non-profit, tax exempt (501(c)(3)) corporation.  The Foundation's Board of Directors is comprised of current and former members of Red Lodge Fire Rescue.
