Living Tribute to 9-11

To Honor those who perished, served and were affected by the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 promoting international brotherhood and goodwill by providing equipment and training to firefighters & fire safety education and hope to children in need around the world, Uniting our world in response the attacks on September 11th.

As we have demonstrated over the past 13 years, even something as tragic as the events of 9/11 can inspire people to do great things in tribute to those who made and continue to make the ultimate sacrifice. Disasters, either natural or man-made truly test those who experience them while also giving us all an opportunity to show our unique spirit and dedication to working together as a team.

For nearly 14 years our efforts have fulfilled our commitment to never forget while saving lives in tribute to those who answered the call on 9/11 and those who continue to answer the call each and every day in our own communities and around the world. Fire Trucks, Ambulances, Life Saving Gear including full turnouts, SCBA, associated equipment, extrication tools, generators, compressors, training and education to properly utilize these items as well as providing schools education for children in the areas of fire prevention, safety and community service. We provide this as a living tribute to our loved ones lost then and now inspired by the unique brotherhood of firefighters around the world.

We are always looking for partners to donate gear that is being replaced as well as funds to help buys equipment, cover the costs of shipping these items, as well as bringing instructors to these locations to teach our brothers and sisters on the equipment donated as we continue to build the brotherhood. Gear Up Foundation is extremely proud of its reputation across the globe and we encourage our brothers in America who are so blessed to find ways to help us help our brothers in need. This is an international effort as our brothers in the UK have joined us and have responded to the call and continue to support our cause. Currently we are operational in 14 nations.

Join us as we unite the world with love and caring through our noble mission.
