The Kevin Apuzzio Memorial Foundation was established on December 5th, 2013, by the voting members of the East Franklin Fire Company, to provide funds and support to student firefighters following in Kevin's footsteps of community service.
In June of 2014, the Kevin Apuzzio Memorial Foundation officially incorporated as a New Jersey Non-Profit Corporation. In doing so, the foundation separated from the East Franklin Fire Company and formed it's own Governing Board.
All funds raised go directly to support the Foundation's mission to carry on the legacy of Kevin Apuzzio through scholarships and outreach programs.
The Kevin Apuzzio Foundation's Annual Scholarship is awarded every year to a college student who is involved in emergency services with the state of New Jersey. They can be either a member of an EMS organization or Fire Department.
From it's inception on the goals for the foundation was to provide low cost training opportunities to emergency services. This goal will finally materialize on December 9th for the Kevin Apuzzio Training Day. For the first year we will be doing a small fire based training, however we would like to expand over years to come to provide EMS training as well.
