I would like to take the opportunity to thank each and everyone who is supporting us through the purchase of tickets/vouchers to our family oriented events. The Nashville Fire Fighters Association represents approximately 1500 Fire Fighters and EMS, retired Fire Fighters and EMS, & widows of Fire Fighters and EMS in Nashville. Our members are employed by the city of Nashville. We represent the Association and operate as our own entity separate from the city. For your information, we are not a charity but a non-profit Professional Organization. Therefore your ticket/voucher purchases are not tax deductible as a charitable contribution for Federal Income Tax. Through the purchase of your tickets/voucher, you are enabling The Fire Fighters and EMS to carry on with the many outstanding programs and other member benefits of the Nashville Fire Fighters Association. The Fire Fighters and EMS of our nation are rated as having one of the most hazardous occupations in terms of death and injury. Working with citizens of Nashville and Davidson County, perhaps we can change these statics.
If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 615-401-6133.
Mark Young, President

Did You Know: That over 41,000 or 31% of children live in poverty in the
city of Nashville, Tennessee?
Winter is right around the corner, and Nashville Firefighters don’t want the children in our communities to be left out in the cold. Team up with Local No. 140 today, and give the gift of warmth to a child in need.
The Firefighters Coats for Kids Foundation provides brand new coats to children living in poverty.
Far beyond warmth, a new coat can free up tight family resources for other basic necessities such as food and shelter, and promotes enhanced well-being and higher self-esteem. By recieving a new winter coat, a child feels valued and proud. To a child in poverty, this is more than a coat. For some, this may be the very first new coat that child has ever recieved.
