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 and Friends,
Thank you to the Battle of the Badges Boxing Committee for the proceeds shared with the GBS from the annual CFD vs CPD Boxing Tournament. We also want to extend our gratitude to the many who attended this event which supports both our Scholarship Program and stewardship of the Memorial Park. Congrats to the CFD who took home the trophy.
