Dear Fire Fighter Supporters:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who is supporting us through the purchase of ticket/vouchers to our family oriented events.
The Franklin Fire Fighters Association represents approximately 130 plus Fire Fighters in Franklin, Tennessee. Our members are employed by the city of Franklin but also volunteer for various activities throughout the community.
The Franklin Fire Fighters Association is a voluntary association which is not associated with the city of Franklin. The association is not a charity but a non-profit Professional Organization, therefore, your purchase of a ticket is not tax deductible as charitable contributions for Federal Income Tax.
