The For Paul Foundation was founded in honor of 36 year old Critical Care Flight Paramedic Paul Besaw, killed in the line of duty on June 1, 2017. During Paul's 18 years in EMS he helped others through teaching, and training. Paul was the guy that you called when you needed help on a call. He would always answer eagerly no matter the time and would never pass judgement. Paul was not only a dedicated paramedic but he was a loving husband to his wife Dawn and the most attentive and caring father to their daughter Allison who was 5 at the time of her father’s death.
Our Foundation a 501 (c)3 not for profit aims to honor Paul by helping other first responders EMS, Ambulance Personnel, Medical Flight Services and their families through education, support, and appreciation. We provide scholarships for high school seniors wishing to become EMTs, Paramedics, or Firefighters. We work to make sure all EMS, First Responders, and their families are recognized for their dedication to keeping others safe and fully supported. One of our major areas of focus is to support families that have suffered from losing a loved one in the line of duty.
