Firefighters for Operation Warm

Heroes on the Operation Warm front lines

In 2012, Operation Warm partnered with the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF). As the engine behind our move to American coat manufacturing, firefighters expand our mission, support jobs for Americans, and impact the lives of children throughout their communities.
