The Marco Island Fire Rescue Foundation is dedicated to providing financial relief and establishing a scholarship fund for Fire Rescue personnel and their families in the time of injury and illness.
The Foundation is also dedicated to supporting fire prevention practices, promoting fire safety and improving citizen awareness of the activities of the Marco Island Fire Rescue Department - https://www.cityofmarcoisland.com/fire-rescue
In an effort to keep our First Responders, Chili Chefs, and all our supporters safe and healthy we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Chili Cook Off schedule for Saturday, November 14, 2020. Plans are underway for a Spring 2021 Chili Cook Off. We will keep you updated as soon as plans are finalized. Thank you so much for your past and future support.
