Have you ever wondered what it costs to outfit a firefighter?
Always There for Texas, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporation, is dedicated to serving our Volunteer Fire Departments, Volunteer Firemen, and other First Responders through raising public awareness of these community based organizations and their need for public support and financial assistance.
We raise funds on behalf of Texas first responders, while promoting the rich heritage of Texas through live music and other cultural events.
Our mission is to be "always there" for Texas first responders, helping them to be well-trained, equipped and in a state of readiness when the next emergency call comes in.
This "Tribute to a Firefighter" event was inspired to help the families of the local Bryan firefighters who lost their lives and were injured in February 2013, but has now been extended to also support the first responders affected by the explosion in West, Texas in March 2013.
Recent events across the nation and state serve to remind the community of the need to support our first responders and their families in these times of tragedy and to continue to support them well after these events disappear from the headlines.
