Make Dinner for Firefighters

Firefighters risk their own health and lives every time they respond to a fire. Those who regularly risk their own lives for others' safety deserve our thanks. Thanking firefighters can be as simple as taking a dinner to your local fire station. Because fires can happen at any time, day or night, there are firefighters on duty 24 hours a day. Let them know you appreciate how they keep your community safe and bring them a homemade dinner.


The majority of firefighters are actually volunteers and they are not paid for their work. They are offering their time and resources to help protect your community. By thanking them you are letting them know their sacrifices are much appreciated.

Step It Up:

Make this a weekly occurrence. One night a week bring a meal to your local fire station. Stay for a little while and get to know the people there.

Keep It Simple:

Send a letter to your local fire station letting them know how much you appreciate the work they do to help keep your community safe. If you have some money to spare, get them a gift card to a local take-out dinner place.
