The mission of the Firefighters of Aurora Benevolent Fund is to provide assistance to actively employed Firefighters and their dependents if the Firefighter is killed, seriously injured or disabled.
Firefighters of Aurora Benevolent Fund was created in 2012, with the generous support of the Aurora Police Department Widow and Orphan fund, after the tragic death of Jason Murphy. While traveling to work at Fire Station 10 on his bicycle, Jason was struck by a vehicle and killed. He left behind a wife, and two young daughters. Aurora Firefighters saw the need for a fund to help those firefighters and their families when the breadwinner was killed, seriously injured or disabled during their career.
