Everyone Goes Home® Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives Program
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation®, the Five Mile Beach Volunteer Firemen’s Association, and the Everyone Goes Home® Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives Program and New Jersey Society of Fire Service Instructors today announced it would hold a community showing of the critically acclaimed documentary, “Into the Fire.” The film, as seen on The History Channel®, is an inspiring and educational journey that takes viewers inside the lives of America’s firefighters.
The documentary offers a rare glimpse into fire station camaraderie, detailing the humor and fierce loyalty shared by the firefighters of an engine company. Real-life firefighters, from small and large departments across the country, talk openly in the film. While many of the firefighters recount the thrill of saving a life, just as many are haunted by those they were unable to save.
“This is a unique film that shows an accurate, inside view of the fire service,” said Greg Collier, New Jersey Everyone Goes Home® Life Safety Initiatives Program, Advocate and member of the board of New Jersey Soicety of Fire Serice Instructors “We are proud to bring this movie to the beach in Wildwood during the New Jersey Fireman’s convention. This is a unique showing honoring New Jersey’s Firefighters. We encourage firefighters and the public to attend and show support for all firefighters.”
The “Into the Fire” showing is free and is open to the public:
On the beach, Sunset Cinema @ the Wildwoods Convention Center

The film is an extension of the company’s social mission to support firefighters for safer communities. Since 2004, Fireman’s Fund has awarded more than $10 million in grants to over 300 fire departments across the nation.
