      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.

      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

      The 30-41 Memorial is in need of mowing crews this summer. Generally one group mows a month at a time (3-4 times).

      If you can assist with landscaping, trash pick up or you are a fire crew that works near the memorial your assistance is also needed in watering trees, shrubs and grass in the dry months.

      If you are near the memorial and can assist with trash pick up please do so, the memorial sits on a busy street and is often in need of trash pick up.

      If you can assist with mowing or landscaping this summer please contact Dave Thurlo, via phone at 816.820.4323, or email at davethurlo@gmail.com thank you all for your help in preserving our memorial.
