who we are
The Athletes to First Responder Charitable Fund Inc. was created to financially support Firefighters Institute for Racial Equality (F.I.R.E.) Retiree’s Captain George Baker Scholarship
The Captain George Baker Scholarship Fund is awarding several members of the community a scholarship to pay (approx. $500.00 up to $1800.00) per semester of an EMT course. An EMT-B (Emergency Medical Technician-Basic) license is a critical link in the chain of the health care team in the form of pre-hospital emergency care. This is also a prerequisite for jobs such as Fire Fighting or a Paramedic.
We have partnered with the Forest Park Community College and Foundation to identify and support potential students with our scholarship and additional opportunities for other funds through their foundation.
Our scholarships are administered during the spring, summer and fall semesters based on the number of students that we have recruited and finances that we have available.
*Current or previous participation in an athlethic program is not a requirement to be a recipient of a scholarship to become an EMT, Paramedic, or obtain any certifications that our scholarship supports.”
“We would be humbled and grateful if your company / organization supported us with this especially important program for students interested in public safety and in particular the rescue, fire and emergency medical services field.”
