First Responder Center for Excellence

Quality Education and Research Network Committed to Reducing First Responder Occupational Illnesses, Injuries, and Deaths

It doesn’t matter the day of the week or the time of day, but our nation’s first responders answer their call to duty without hesitation. While they train and prepare tactically for their daily responses, they must also be physically and mentally prepared for those same calls.

National Emergency – Covid-19 Pandemic Update

As the United States works to deal with the Covid-19 Pandemic, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and its affiliate, First Responder Center for Excellence (FRCE), are taking steps to ensure our continuity of operations and the safety of our staff, fire hero families, public safety partners, contractors and volunteers. The NFFF and FRCE have suspended all work-related travel until June 1, 2020. All conferences, training events, summits and seminars have been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date. The NFFF and FRCE offices, both in Emmitsburg and Crofton, have been closed and all of our staff are working from home.

We’re Here for You!

As we all adjust to new daily routines and realities, please know that the First Responder Center for Excellence (FRCE) is here to support you and your family.  We are providing several health and wellness resources that you may find useful during this time.  Our team hopes that you, your loved ones and your employees stay safe and look out for each other’s health and well-being.
