Volunteer Fire Department Fundraising Opportunities

The Waverly, Iowa fire department.


A lot of cities and towns across the United States rely on volunteer firemen for their local fire departments. These volunteer firemen make up about 70% of the total population of firefighters in the U.S.

A majority local fire stations hold fundraisers throughout the year to help fund new trucks, equipment, or educational programs on fire safety. Common firefighter fundraisers include pancake breakfasts, chicken dinners, or dances for community members.

Many volunteer fire departments and their auxiliaries have found that selling Rada Cutlery is the absolute best way to raise money.

This mission is carried out by making sure the interests of the volunteers are heard at the U.S. Congress and other federal agencies, promoting the interests of the different fire organizations at a national level, providing education and training, representing members on nationals standards setting committees and projects, as well as releasing information to the organizations.
