WHAT IS FIREHOUSE SHIRT CLUB?
IN 2011 THE FIRST, FIREFIGHTER SHIRT CLUB WAS BORN. FORMER DALLAS AND McKINNEY FIREFIGHTER/PARAMEDIC JIM SCANO, LIKE MOST ENTHUSIASTS AND COLLECTORS, WAS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO GET HIS HAND ON UNIQUE, CLASSY, AUTHENTIC T-SHIRTS FROM OTHER FIREHOUSES. HE WAS VISITING WITH HIS BUDDY ONE DAY AND CAME UP WITH THE IDEA THAT FIREHOUSE SHIRT CLUB COULD BE A PLACE WHERE FIREFIGHTERS LIKE JIM, COULD LOOK FORWARD TO RECEIVING A TOTALLY UNIQUE, AUTHENTIC T-SHIRT EACH MONTH FROM FIREHOUSES ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD.
SINCE ITS INCEPTION, FIREHOUSE SHIRT CLUB HAS FEATURED OVER 80 FIRE STATIONS AND DONATED DIRECTLY BACK TO THOSE FIRE STATIONS IN AN ESTIMATED AMOUNT OF $100,000! NOW, THE CLUB OFFERS UPGRADE OPTIONS INCLUDING PATCHES FROM THE FEATURED FIREHOUSE.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING THE CLUB, SUBMITTING YOUR FIREHOUSE SHIRT/LOGO TO FEATURE, OR NEED SOME HELP RECONSTRUCTING YOUR CURRENT LOGO/PATCH, PLEASE GO TO WWW.FIREHOUSESHIRTCLUB.COM

Where did you get your name from?
The Hook & Irons are arguably the most useful and versatile set of tools on the fire ground. They have in various forms been around for decades and I feel confident that firefighters a hundred years from now will be using these same tools to do the work we all do everyday around this country. The tools represent strength and versatility. They are tough and honest. The hook and the irons are iconic in the fire service and for that reason, we couldn't think of a better name.
