We Do More Than Save Lives!

Since the creation of Local 83 we have regularly given back to our community? Our members take great pride in giving back to those we serve.

Service programs in which we participate

We have regularly provided Santa and gifts to the residents of Kansas Neurological Institute (KNI) for several years through our KNI Christmas Party.

We also have given monetary and manpower support to other charitable organizations throughout the city. With the help of you, our citizens, we are most proud of contributions to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). With the generous donations given through the “ help fill the boot ” campaign each year thousands of dollars are raised in one weekend to benefit the MDA.

We also regularly support:

Shawnee County Relay For Life

Meals on Wheels fundraising Gala

DART – Downtown Adventure Race Topeka that helps support the “Let’s Help” organization.

The Scotty D. Memorial Christmas for Kids shopping event

Sole Reason

Living the Dream

Be responsible this New Year’s Eve – make plans to get home safely before you go out. #IAFFSafetyTips
As fire fighters and paramedics, we are trained to see the potential dangers behind the scenes as home fires increase exponentially during the holiday season. A combination of live trees, fires, lights and candles – plus alcohol – can quickly turn into a recipe for disaster. Be smart this season. #IAFFSafetyTips
Every year, candles cause more than 10,000 home fires. We recommend switching to LED candles to be safe. #IAFFSafetyTips
Holidays can be hectic – cooking, people coming and going, decorations and wrapping – pets often go missing during this time. If you have a particularly slippery one, keep them upstairs or behind a gate if you have a holiday party. Keep a collar – with your updated information – on them at all times. #IAFFSafetyTips
