Great Ways To Support Your Local Fire Company?

Sure, you know your favorite fire department responds to numerous fires, vehicle accidents, and emergencies throughout the day. But did you know that these same people also attend hours of training, drills and community service events?

To help cover the cost of the operations, these companies hold fundraisers, events, cook-offs, bingo games and that’s just for starters. Some of them operate banquet halls that they rent out for meetings, ceremonies, receptions, and all sorts of other gatherings.

Firefighters have the reputation of being great cooks, so food events are a great way to support them. Whether it’s a Beef & Beer, a fish fry, BBQ chicken night or a breakfast buffet you’ll enjoy a satisfying meal while giving back to your community. Some fire companies also team up with popular local restaurants for fundraiser nights. Make sure to check out their event calendars.

Bingo nights are another popular way to support your local fire company. Walking away with the prize money will make supporting these guys and gals that mush sweeter.

Another great way to show your support is to donate directly. Most of these companies allow you to donate right on their websites.

In addition to training and drills, these fire companies use the community’s support to maintain the firehouse and purchase other needed equipment.
