      March 14, 2018 is the official 150th Anniversary of KCFD. The Kansas City Fire Historical Society is proud to present our 150th Anniversary Badge. The outline of the complete badge is the identical outline of the KCFD second issue badge (issued from 1904 to 1921) the smaller inset badge in the center is a downsized version of the KCFD first issued badge (issued from 1885 through 1904). The City of Fountains-Heart of America logo was officially adopted 1992 through the present. These badges are on sale through the KCFHS donation website for $125. Please help us in preserving our KCFD’s rich tradition. 

      The link to purchase the badges is here on the KCFHS donation page here. Purchases can be made with a credit card on that page. Please help us in preserving our KCFD’s rich tradition.

      Local 42 has provided this information on our website to assist them the KC Historical Society in getting this information out to the KCFD Membership.  This program was established by the KC Historical Society and any and all inquires regarding questions or purchases should be directed to Bill Young at 816.969.9548.


       


       

      None of us have to struggle alone. The Peer Support Team is here when you or your family need us. There are going to be times in our lives that are tough by virtue of what we experience as professionals and human beings. Strength is not shouldering another burden; rather, strength is in letting go and asking for help. The Peer Support Team is made up of fire service and EMS members just like you. If you need a peer to talk with and someone who can understand what you are experiencing because they have been there; we are here.

      “We are committed to being a leader in first responder behavioral health and helping to insure everyone goes home.”

      Peer Support is defined as confidential assistance provided by a trained individual or group of trained firefighters and emergency responders who answer the call to their brothers and sisters in need, regardless of the need.

      The Union has a list of trusted behavioral health specialists for referral and is working with the IAFF and other community partners to expand the provider list.

      To access the Peer Support Program, go to www.firestrong.org and follow the steps below:

      Step 1:  Go to www.FIRESTRONG.org

      Step 2: Choose Greater KC Firefighters Local 42
