The United Phoenix Firefighters Association

United Phoenix Firefighters is an association of professional firefighters from Phoenix that work to better the communities by performing charitable works and by doing whatever we can do to make this city a safe place to live in. As local fire fighters, they see first-hand the devastation of home and business fires, medical emergencies, and death. While on duty risking their lives, they realize the community they serve needs more than what they can handle. The long hours and shortage of firefighters can be hard. It is our calling to support, comfort, and educate our community to prevent future accidents.  The UPFC services, support, and resources have grown over the decades.
