FireLink's Fundraisers for Firefighters

Fire Station Open House
Allow the community you protect to get an intimate look into what you do on a daily basis by hosting an open house.
Offering the unique chance for the public to get an intimate look into a firefighter’s life can be an educational experience for them and a profitable one for you.
An open house allows you to have several presentations in one main area including: bake sale, station tour, equipment demonstrations, apparatus presentations, hose exercises, etc. Set up a space for kids to play firefighter-related games as well.
At the end of the day, set up a speech for one of your officers to speak about the situations you face as firefighters. If this is a fundraiser for your own station, talk about the difficulties you experience due to the lack of the item(s) you are raising funds to purchase.
If you are hosting a fundraiser for an outside charity, incorporate a representative from that charity to speak as well.
