Our Mission

is pure and simple

To Honor, Encourage and Strengthen Fire Wives, Marriages and Families.

We aren’t counselors.  Please also seek counseling for many of life’s curve balls, this is great advice we not only give… but utilize ourselves.  But we do want to be that supportive bridge during those times of need.  To use a sterile professional workplace term, we are “peer support”.  In real life words, we are the non-judging supportive friends you’ve been seeking.  Our  involvement with the FirefighterWife.com mission started with the fire service where the divorce rate have been quoted to be as high as 75%.  We want to see that number fall.

 

Here you will find helpful resources like:

I thought I would hate Commitment Weekend when my wife asked me to attend. I hesitantly agreed, but left with better connection with my wife and the urge to help strengthen other firefighter marriages through sharing my experience.

I’m A Seasoned Firefighter / Fire Family and LOVE this Mission. How Can I Do More?

Many find us and say ‘I wish I had this when we were a young family’.   If that’s you, we’d love your support!   Please consider ways you can step alongside and help us as a volunteer, donor or just spreading the word.

We are overwhelmed with men and women who reach out and want to serve along side us.  W-O-W!  So many amazingly talented firefighters and spouses.

Please be patient with our response as we receive many emails daily while trying to maintain our day jobs, manage our families, and well, you know, juggle the fire wife life!

Here are ways you can help as a volunteer:

  • Are you a writer?  We love guest bloggers to add to our wealth of knowledge here on the site. Real life from those who are living it.
  • Love on others on in our Facebook Community at Facebook.com/thefirefighterwife.
  • Share our resources with anyone who may benefit.
  • Share our resources with your Department.

I was very hesitant to sign up for the girls weekend. BUT It was a great weekend with some very special bonds formed! I was able to relax and focus on myself and forming real bonds rather than diapers, feeding, and nap time! This is going to make me a better wife and mother!
