 For a safer community

Northern Ohio Firefighters Charities is a 501(c) 3 that was founded to help people in their time of need.  Firefighters/Emergency Medical Professionals are in a unique position to help identify people in the community who need a helping hand.  Emergency response personnel are often on the front lines in being able to identify members of the community who are in dire need of assistance.  The funds raised by Northern Ohio Charities are used to improve the quality of people’s lives in many different ways.  It might be a firefighter fighting a debilitating and destructive disease, a family displaced from their home due to the devastating effects of fire or assistance with medical expenses for a young child suffering from cancer.

Firefighters and paramedics work long shifts and are dedicated to helping others every time the alarm sounds.  On occasion, there is more work that can be done after the emergency response is completed.  That is when Northern Ohio Firefighters Charities steps in.  Most firefighters have a deep passion for helping others and Northern Ohio Firefighters Charities is yet another way to accomplish the goal of making people’s lives better.  

Thank you for your interest in Northern Ohio Firefighters Charities and we hope you will continue to support or efforts.

Fight for Seamus

On January 5th of this year, our Brother Seamus was on duty when he experienced a severe headache, nausea and elevated blood pressure. His shift mates transported him to  Lake West emergency room where a CT scan revealed a 5-6 cm tumor in his frontal lobe. He was later transported to University Hospital in Cleveland where results were confirmed with an MRI and next steps were identified. 

One week later, Seamus underwent brain surgery and the surgeon was able to remove the majority of the tumor. He experienced some speech and motor deficit but is in the process of overcoming those obstacles. Pathology revealed that the tumor was cancerous , so he began an intense treatment of Proton Therapy and Chemo five days a week for six weeks. That portion of his treatment will be finished in early April. Then he starts the next round. 

We need your help! Seamus Culligan has been a career firefighter for nearly 13 years, serving those most in need, but today he needs your help. Let's band together and show him how its done....

Seamus has been married for 17 years to his loving wife, Cyndie and has been blessed with three beautiful children :  Emily, Tadhg, and Gavin.

He came to the U.S. from Ireland in pursuit of an engineering degree, but along the way met his beautiful wife Cyndie (an EMT at the time) who exposed him to the world of emergency response. He was hooked from the start and pursued further studies, while serving as a volunteer firefighter until being appointed to a postition with the Willoughby Fire Department in 2004. His love of the job and continued learning is evident: He is on the county Tech team, the county Hazmat team and serves as a fire instructor. In 2001 after 9/11 Seamus even went to Ground Zero to help.

Seamus still has a tough fight ahead of him, but we won't let him fight alone! We have established this page to help the family with future expenses that are going to come from this battle. We can only imagine the out of pocket expenses, but Seamus and his family live it. 

Consider how you might help a fellow Brother and his family in need

Thank you on behalf  of Seamus, his family and all his Brothers of the Willoughby Fire Department
