Join FirefighterAid in welcoming Fire Captain "Iron Bill" Dowling to San Diego this April.



FirefighterAid is honored to head up the welcoming committee for Captain Dowling when he travels to San Diego with his family to see his oldest son graduate from Marine Corps Boot Camp on April 25th. Iron Bill was wounded in a tragic Houston fire on May 31, 2013, which claimed the lives of four of his comrades.


We'll be hosting Bill and his family as they visit San Diego. You can help!
