The Mission of the Scandinavian American Police and Fire Association is to promote, preserve, and cherish a lasting appreciation of the heritage and culture of the Scandinavian countries while growing soundly as a fraternal benefit society and offering maximum benefits to all our members.

The Scandinavian American Police and Fire Association will be an all inclusive organization. The primary purpose, however, includes the preservation of Scandinavian heritage and culture in our first responder society. We create an environment in which our members grow, since we are small in membership, but large in spirit.

We promote the Scandinavian traditions and fraternal fellowship through the cultural and social opportunities offered in the organization. These activities include, but are not limited to, educational scholarships, and fundraising events that support the families of all police, fire, and paramedic personnel who made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty.
