Proud To Rescue Benevolent Fund

The Proud to Rescue Benevolent Fund provides charitable assistance to disabled and retired Local 1908 members, their dependents and survivors, and other charitable organizations across Southern Nevada.

Every year, members of the Clark County Fire Department donate hours of their time when they are off the clock to help raise awareness and money for organizations across the Valley.

Every year, we also give scholarships to local youths to help them further their education.

  • Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada

  • St. Baldrick’s Foundation
  • Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada
  • USO – Las Vegas
