A Big Thank You Firefighters for Inspiring Hope in 2017

Can you believe it has been five years since IAFF Firefighters originally partnered with Operation Warm to provide brand new winter coats to children living in need?

Thanks to their amazing dedication to making sure children stay warm in their communities, Firefighters for Operation Warm have told thousands of children that they are worth it. For these children and their families, the gift of a brand new winter coat means that someone cares about them, and that can make all the difference.

From hosting fun fundraisers to reaching into their own pockets, the men and women who participated in Operation Warm coat programs went above and beyond to make sure there were enough coats for kids.
