Members Only— Fire: Celebrating 160 years of the Salem Fire Department

Event Details


October 2017

If you have a sudden cardiac arrest near a Salem/Keizer 8th grader, you will have a good chance of being saved.  Why?  The Salem Fire Foundation (SFF) has taught over 5000 students CPR and how to use an AED.

Recently a Salem/Keizer student who received CPR training, was celebrated by Chief Niblock for saving his father’s life when his father suffered a heart attack at home. This training works.

This training is not funded by any other means and is made possible ONLY through generous donations to the SFF.  Since our founding, community members have come together donating thousands of dollars to save lives.

Training each student costs approximately $10.  When you become a sustainer member of the SFF, at even the $10 level, you will help provide CPR/AED training to 10 students.

Here’s what’s even better!  When you join, you will receive an EXCLUSIVE invitation to the Salem Fire Foundation Members-only Private Preview Event:
