National First Responder’s Day

National First Responder’s Day

October 27, 2019

As a company owned and run by firefighters, Fire Department Coffee wants to take this opportunity to recognize our local and national heroes. The ones who never hesitate to answer the call of duty. The ones who clock in and don’t know if they’ll make it back home. National First Responder’s Day was designated by Congress on this day, October 28, 2017 and is now a day on which to honor those who continue to ensure the safety of the general public and their own brothers and sisters in uniform.

Firefighters and other first responders pay a high price for their prompt response to the needs of others, which is just one small reason that from the very beginning, Fire Dept. Coffee has offered first responders and active and retired military personnel 15% off every purchase when you order online from our site.

I’m a first responder or active/retired military. How do I get this discount?

There are a couple of different ways you can do this:

If you already have a discount card from a previous Fire Dept. Coffee purchase,
just go to checkout, type in the discount code featured on the card, click Apply and you’re all set!

If you’re new to the club, no worries! Just add your desired items to the cart and once finished, add the first responder discount code and receive 15% off your order at checkout. If you are a first responder and need the discount code, just send us an email or give us a call.

Giving back is a huge part of what we do.

Even if you're not a first responder, don't worry. Our coffee is freshly roasted for everyone who enjoys a great cup of coffee. Plus, 10% of net proceeds go to help injured or ill first responders through our Fire Department Coffee Foundation. Now that's something you can be proud of with every sip.

As always, at Fire Dept. Coffee, we salute you and we're honored to call you our brothers, our sisters, and our friends.

Memorial Day is truly observed at Arlington and at cemeteries from coast to coast. It’s observed at small town Main Street parades and at elaborate ceremonies in our largest cities. It’s an opportunity to reflect and remember the military men and women who gave their lives in service of our nation.
