Join Our Family


The Foundation is proud to be a community partner and liaison for Marco Island’s fire rescue personnel and its members. Each year, the Foundation invites new members to become part of this thriving community organization. New member applications are avail­able at the Fire Station and through any board member. They are also available at Foundation events. Donations to the Foundation also are accepted. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax deductible.

The Foundation uses 100 percent of contributions and membership dues to support the families of fire rescue personnel and the Foundation’s community programs. Annual memberships are available for families and businesses. We are honored to have the business community represent a significant amount of our membership and look forward to publicly recognizing them throughout the year. Many Foundation members are involved in the Citizens Emergency Response Team (CERT) for disaster relief and support island fire pre­vention programs.

Each year the Foundation holds an annual luncheon in spring. At this event, firefighters entering the department are welcomed with a pinning ceremony, and the Firefighter of the Year is announced and honored. Local businesses are awarded for outstanding activities related to the health and welfare of the community. The annual luncheon is held in spring to allow seasonal resident members to attend.
