About Us

The past fire season was historic for the State of Texas and specifically the Permian Basin. We are still rebuilding from the devastation and have seen the toll on our fire agencies. Our communities rely heavily on the close cooperative operations of our volunteer and career fire services. These agencies are struggling to meet the high demand for calls and the shrinking revenues of State and local support.

This is the reason the Permian Basin Firemen’s Fund has been created. We are a 501(C)3 non-profit organization devoted to supporting the fire service needs in a direct and organized approach. The Permian Basin Firemen’s Fund will assist all city/ county/ volunteer fire services in Andrews, Borden, Crane, Dawson, Ector, Gaines, Glasscock, Howard, Loving, Martin, Midland, Pecos, Reeves, Terrell, Upton, Ward, and Winkler counties.

Drought conditions continue throughout the Permian Basin. The wind-driven fire season last year was devastating and we continue our vigilance to be prepared for potential wildfire outbreaks.

The battle is not over by any means. The drought has left our area in a state of danger for many months and possibly years to come. Our reliance on our local fire services are evident as never seen before. Cooperative efforts have been forged in our region for fire services to help each other as much as possible. The Permian Basin area fire services come together to fight fires in our area whenever there is a need, now the Permian Basin fire services needs your assistance to help improve the fire services ability to serve the Permian Basin.

Permian Basin Counties Supported by the Permian Basin Firemen’s Fund:
