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.
