"Signature Series" Shield - Jason Patton
Fire Department Chronicles was originally created in 2016 as a stress reliever for my fellow firefighters and I. We quickly realized, however, that the humor resonated heavily with many other First Responders as well. I began to receive message after message about how the videos helped them (and sometimes their whole crew) get through a bad call or shift that they just experienced. I deeply believe in helping those around me and I have found that humor is sometimes the best way to help someone cope with the tragedy and loss that they must deal with on a daily basis at their job. We are founded on the motto of giving back and that is why partnering with Fire Department Coffee was a perfect fit for us. Fire Department Chronicles was founded by Jason Patton. Jason Patton is the founder of Fire Department Chronicles. Jason has been a South Florida firefighter for ten years. He is currently a firefighter/paramedic and field training officer.
The proceeds from the sale of these shields will be donated to The Fire Department Coffee Foundation. The Fire Department Coffee Foundation was established so we could have the means of giving back to sick and injured firefighters. We wanted the ability to not only support our fellow brothers and sister emotionally, but also financially when they need it most. Sometimes paying someone's mortgage or car payment for the month is just what they need to be able to make it over that metaphorical "hump" on their road to recovery. We want to be the people that they can turn to when there is no one else.
An excerpt from the Fire Department Coffee Foundation site:
HELPING OUR HEROES WHEN THEY NEED US MOST
- When we’re in trouble or in danger, firefighters and other first responders race to our side without a second wasted and without a second thought.
- It’s why we’re now creating the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to support groups that help first responders who are injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges.
- Fire Dept. Coffee donates 10% of all proceeds to support our injured or ill heroes.
- This foundation will make sure that money gets to those who need it most.
- So how can you help?
- It’s easy. Just keep drinking Fire Dept. Coffee, knowing that each order is benefiting first responders in need.
- Because our heroes need all the help we can give.
