The 15-minute survey is open to all firefighters through the end of March. To access the survey, visit or log on to

All members of the fire service are encouraged to participate in the survey - the more people who participate, the more thorough the results will be.

The survey will:

  • Collect valuable information about how the current economic situation is affecting fire departments.
  • Identify equipment and resources departments are lacking.
  • Educate the public about the needs of the fire service.
  • Help guide and support the fire department grant program at Fireman's Fund®.

As a thank you for taking the survey, all participants are eligible to receive one of 10 handcrafted, leather Fireman's Fund® fire helmets, modeled after the helmets worn in the 1880s. Fireman's Fund Insurance Company has directed grants in conjunction with its independent insurance agents and employees to fire departments across the country since 2004. The company has donated more than $21 million to more than 1,000 different fire departments.
