Helping to build strong, better prepared, and more resilient Minnesota communities for times of emergency.
The need is great for trained and ready first responders and local communities with citizens able and ready to help themselves until help arrives. We believe in every community, every neighborhood, every family, and every individual, stronger, safer, and better prepared in the event an emergency or disaster of any kind strikes.
T.L.C.F. Inc, a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 2003. Through our scholarship and training grant programs TLCF, Inc. invests in individuals who are willing to serve their local communities as well-trained emergency personnel and invests in Minnesota communities by acting as a private-funding resource for local emergency medical services (EMS) and fire services training needs.
Our goal is to help ensure that there is always someone trained and ready to respond in times of need.
Today our mission continues as we award scholarships to remarkable individuals throughout the state who are committed to making a difference in their local communities as firefighters, paramedics, and nurses. We continually seek opportunities to support fire prevention programs for children in our elementary schools, and training efforts of fire departments and ambulance services so that our EMS responders can be best prepared to respond in times of emergency.
