Safe Shift was created in 2017 as a fundraising arm of the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation. The trustees recognized a need to generate sustainable funding for the Health and Wellness programs for the firefighters and their families that serve their communities in southern Arizona. All net sale proceeds from the store go directly to the Foundation.
Safe Shift sells a wide variety of inventory donated by families and businesses.
Safe Shift is staffed entirely by volunteers.
“Safe Shift” is the good luck phrase passed by one shift of firefighters to the next.
The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation works to ensure that all fire department personnel have a “safe shift” at home as well as while they are at work.
