The Chicago Fire Department Gold Badge Society was founded February 17, 1991. Our membership is comprised of the families of firefighters and paramedics who have made the ultimate sacrifice: losing their lives in the line of duty. Our purpose for existing is to offer support and comfort to any and all who might benefit from our experiences, especially any future duty-death families.
Dear Gold Badge Members
On Sunday, October 9th (1e-3), the National Fallen Firefighter Foundation will be hosting their annual Memorial Ceremony in Emmittsburg, MD.

Safe travels all whom are traveling and please know that all of them are in our thoughts and prayers. Please keep the Capuano Family in your thoughts.
