The mission of the Salem Fire Foundation is to improve the health and welfare of the greater Salem community by providing CPR training, increasing public access to automatic external defibrillators (AEDs), and linking trained and equipped public responders to people experiencing a cardiac emergency at their time of need.  Engage with and support firefighters, dispatchers, and their families.  Provide essential equipment, education, and opportunities for community engagement.
