This organization is amazing. They helped me out after an on duty accident I had, and even came to see me in the hospital. Im very appreciative of this organization, and will continue to participate in their free trainings they provide to the local fire departments.

I just want to say thank you to This organization for awarding me a scholarship to be able to attend the Cancer and Mental Health Symposium coming up this week. Without you guys paying for my travel and lodging, I wouldn’t be able to go. This is a huge deal as I’m on a rural volunteer department that lacks heavily in the cancer prevention and mental health awareness subjects. Because of you, I’m going to be able to help my department catch up to the times and provide resources that have never been provided before as well as creating SOG/SOPs to help my guys get the help they need and to prevent further harm. From everyone at New Carlisle Fire Department, THANK YOU!

Brothers helping Brothers is a great nonprofits who strive to help as many people as possible. Our fire department received 1200 ft of 5 in LDH from them earlier this year. This donation was a great help to us due to our small budget. I would recommend these guys to anyone.

Nick and the team at BHB do such amazing work, and on top of that, they do it on a shoestring budget. Nick does this without compensation for himself and the percentage that goes directly towards their equipment grants is insanely high. It’s something like less than 5% that goes towards operating cost. So if you want your money to make the most direct impact on a fire department in need, BHB is the one to donate to.

I have known about Brothers Helping Brothers for several years now here in Ohio and what they do for the fire service, public safety, education, training, awareness, and beyond. Their organization is an up and coming one that is making positive changes in our communities.

I have been to several trainings and workshops that they have conducted and found them to be very useful, and their organization effective.

Beyond education, training, and awareness, they provide small grants and financial assistance/sponsorship to many to make a difference!
