Christmas came early today to the Florida Hospital For Children in Orlando as The Caden Project teamed up with the local firefighters to bring some comfort and smiles to these children. Thank you to the Orlando, Orange County and Reedy Creek firefighters for taking the time to visit these amazing kids with us! Florida Hospital For Children
It's right around the corner, in just 4 more months on Saturday, March 12th, 2016 we will be hosting the 48th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade & Festival.
We want every person that is off-duty to come out. Do you love what you do? Then throw on that Class A uniform and represent your department and municipality . This parade is growing every year. It's you the firefighters, police officers, servicemen, cadets, and explorers that make this more the International Emergency Services St. Patrick's Day Parade. We want you to come out and have a great time. We call that................. "Brotherhood".
So get together with the people in your department. Share this email. Save the date. Have a banner made (if you don't have one) and march with your department, along with your other Brothers and Sisters from around the State and Country.Honor Guard/ Color Guard
If your team would like to participate, we will gladly have you.
Under Parade and Festival Participants, register under Parade Float Application. Please bring your department flag, tools, and banner. Also, if your department is going to have an apparatus in the parade. please fill out the Parade Float Application.
There are some 60,000 tax paying / voting citizens and their children, that come to watch this parade from all over the map. If there were ever a time in our nations history, where the public's support and respect for the professional uniformed members of the Emergency Services was needed, now's that time. This one minute video will show you when and how this all began and the effect its had on the citizens and their children for the last 5 years - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWgg3bm9TLU
