FireLink's Fundraisers for Firefighters

Firefighter Parade

Throwing a charitable firefighter parade is a great way to get the public’s attention. Before you begin planning however, be sure to discuss throwing the parade in your community with city officials first.

Your department can drive your truck(s) throughout your town, sirens blazing and lights flashing. Have some firefighters standing on the fire truck throwing candy out to the public while others walk along carrying buckets for donations.

Make it a family event and have fun. Hand kids balloons, play music, and perhaps even have a fireworks display at the end destination.

You can also charge a fee to food vendors who may want to be present.

Though it may require a bit more effort to put together, hosting a firefighter parade is sure to not only raise funds for your cause, but provide wonderful memories for all of those in attendance.
