Last updated 1/4/2018 at 8:28pm

SAN DIEGO – While you’re spending cherished time with your loved ones this holiday season, please keep in mind all of those who are desperately missing their first responders. The LA fires continue to rage on and our brave firefighters continue to fight.

The Burn Institute is here to support these fearless heroes with the Red Line of Courage Fund. Established in 2016, the Burn Institute proudly established this unique fund to provide support services to local firefighters who sustain a burn injury while on duty.

The Red Line of Courage Fund is designed to supplement those services already in place for professional firefighters and make resources available for the more immediate and long-term needs that other programs do not offer. To implement and sustain the Red Line of Courage Fund, the Burn Institute sets aside a portion of the proceeds from the Annual Firefighter Boot Drive that is held each March, as a safety net for our courageous firefighters.

The Burn Institute, 365 days a year, stands at the ready to support local burn survivors with financial and emotional assistance from the day of their injury, throughout the rest of their lives. Should one of our brave men or women on the fire line endure the devastation of a burn injury, the Institute will be there to nurture, comfort and back their family in this time of need.

If you feel impacted by the recent wildland fires and want to ensure our local heroes are taken care of, consider making a donation to the Burn Institute’s Red Line of Courage Fund by donating online at and noting “Red Line of Courage” in the designation field or by mailing checks to their office at 8825 Aero Drive #200, San Diego, CA 92123.
