"United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) San Diego has had the honor of having the moral and financial support of the San Diego City Firefighters for over 35 years.

Along the way, through numerous events –especially the signature “Firefighters and Friends – Celebrity Waiters Luncheon”, you all have helped us raise in excess of a million dollars to support the program services UCP provides to our friends and neighbors with cerebral palsy and other disabilities and their families.“

All of our classes are taught by San Diego City fire fighters, which we believe gives the student the best instruction available. We use American Heart Association (AHA) materials in our classes, and issue AHA certificates upon completion of the course.
