I came here to ask

You are right. It is the logo from http://www.everyonegoeshome.com/

"Recognizing the need to do more to prevent line-of-duty deaths and injuries, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (http://www.firehero.org/) has developed a national program to bring prevention efforts to the forefront."

Unfortunately, over 100 firefighters are killed in the line of duty each year. The harsh truth is that many of them are preventable and should not happen. ( I am not saying that about the Charleston deaths). This is an initiative to help the fire service change itself and make sure everyone goes home.

Along time ago it was explained to me that the fire service is 200 years of tradition unencombered by progress.
