FIRE AID was established with core funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) in 2013.
FIRE AID recieves core funding from the FIA Foundation through EASST, who are a FIRE AID founding member. FIRE AID’s work in the area of post-crash response is a part of the FIA’s focus on the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. The Foundations funding is essential to the running of FIRE AID.
“FIRE AID is a practical and cost-effective way to transfer equipment and expertise from the UK to countries with serious road traffic injury problems and limited resources. It addresses the important area of post-crash care – pillar 5 of the Decade of Action Global Plan – and the critical need to ensure early and skilled intervention to rescue crash victims. So the FIA Foundation is pleased to join the UK Department for International Development and others in supporting FIRE AID.”
Saul Billingsley, Director General of the FIA Foundation.
