IAFF Local 452

You can make a difference in the lives of children by supporting the Vancouver Firefighters “Operation Warm” program.

Children will be able to go to school on cold winter days. They will feel special in their very own brand new coat…maybe their first new coat ever. And with our American-Made coats, you’ll be supporting American jobs too.

Without this program, many local children will be left out in the cold. With your support, many will be happy and warm. Please help a child in need!
