Not only will you get to enjoy an exceptional new coffee and/or an awesome new shirt design but you'll also be supporting the incredible work of the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI).
The Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) recently teamed up with Fire Department Coffee (FDC) to discuss the importance of firefighter training and safety, and shared stories about real-life situations where training came into action. This film was also made possible in part by IDEX, who donated $5000 directly to IFSI.
IFSI, a trusted organization affiliated with the University of Illinois, plays a crucial role in training over 60,000 first responders each year. Their 28-acre live fire training facility in Illinois — sometimes called Disneyland for firefighters — is where they come to receive top-notch training that prepares them to face the toughest situations with confidence and skill.
But IFSI's dedication doesn't stop there.
They also go the extra mile by traveling across the country to conduct training events, ensuring that first responders everywhere have access to the tools, equipment, training and information they need. It's all part of their commitment to Research, Information, Training, and Education (R.I.T.E) — a philosophy that aligns perfectly with our values at Fire Dept. Coffee.
Not only does IFSI focus on physical preparedness, but they also understand the importance of mental resilience among firefighters. Many of their training sessions include valuable insights into resiliency awareness and the resources available to address and support the mental and physical health challenges that first responders face.
Let's start with the star of the month — our exclusive coffee blend, "Doin' It R.I.T.E,” for members of the Fire Dept. Coffee Club. This roast is not just your ordinary cup of joe. It's carefully crafted to ensure you're alert and prepared for any situation.
With rich hints of chocolate, zesty orange, and a touch of honey sweetness, this coffee is as bold and robust as our brave first responders themselves. From the very first sip to the last drop, you'll be energized and ready to tackle your day.
Fire Dept. Shirt Club members will receive an eye-catching navy blue shirt proudly displaying "Illinois Fire Service Institute" on the front. On the back, you'll find the same stylish "Doin' It R.I.T.E." design that graces the coffee bag, showing two firefighters in full gear walking toward a burning building.
Wear it with pride, knowing that you're standing in solidarity with the brave men and women who risk their lives every day to keep us safe.
Throughout August, the Fire Department Coffee Club and Fire Department Shirt Club raised a total of $10K to give back to support IFSI. We're grateful to everyone that showed their support to help this cause and mission of giving back to help sick or injured first responders and firefighters.
As always, the Fire Department Coffee Club gives back $2 from every order and the Fire Department Shirt Club gives back $5 from every order to the featured department of the month.
If you haven’t tried these clubs yet, now is the perfect time. They are available both as a one-time purchase or as a monthly subscription.
Each month features a new roast and a new T-shirt and you’ll have a dozen reasons to feel good because you're supporting our community's firefighters.
