Eric Marsh Foundation
"Wildland Firefighters and their families are in a position that relies heavily on non-profit assistance when $h!t happens on the line and off the line. EMF is one of few organizations that provides the assistance. I'm excited to be able to support their mission and the fire family at large."
- Luke Mayfield, Fire Program Manager, MYSTERY RANCH

The Eric Marsh Foundation (EMF) for Wildland Firefighters supports next-of-kin of wildland firefighters who perish (Line of Duty Death = LODD) in the line of duty and WLFF who are injured in the line of duty.
Amanda Marsh founded the Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters to honor and continue the legacy of her husband, Eric, and the other 18 members of his crew who perished on June 30th, 2013, while fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire in Yarnell, Arizona.
MYSTERY RANCH and the Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters support the Wildland Firefighting community's ongoing efforts across the United States and throughout the world.
EMF is supported by donors' generous donations and their additional contributions of time and talent to achieve our mission.
"Being part of the Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters has been an amazing gift. Honoring our 19 Granite Mountain HotShots, we work hard to reach out and be a source of support, comfort, and financial benefit when a family or Wildland Firefighter is injured or killed in the line of duty. We know first hand the trauma, heartbreak, and challenges family and firefighters face when life-changing events happen. We are there to support our Wildland Firefighting community."
– Amanda Marsh, Founder.
