About the Fallen Fire Fighters Relief Fund
The Orange County Professional Firefighters Association represents over 800 professional Firefighters of the Orange County Fire Authority and the Laguna Beach Fire Department. Combined, they provide regional fire protection to 23 cities and 1.5 million citizens in Orange County, California. In 1998, the OC Firefighters founded the Fallen Fire Fighters Relief Fund to aid the families of two Orange County Fire Authority firefighters lost in the line-of-duty. The Fallen Fire Fighters Relief Fund, supported by Orange County citizens and employees of the Orange County Fire Authority, has stepped forward with immediate relief to ease the grief and hardship of these catastrophic losses, donating over $70,000 to date. This particular charity is very near and dear to Toles’ mother, Pauline, who was once a firefighter herself.
