Our organization was established in 2011, and is registered as a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the State of Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Conceived from a desire to inspire community outreach beyond our work in the fire service, Firefighters Charities of Pasco, Inc. (FFCOP) was created.
