Our Mission

It is the purpose of our association to provide fire departments, companies and associations,a uniform and equitable means of judging parades, and other event competition, for the benefit of all, with a strong emphasis and goal of developing a closer relationship in the fire service. We will accomplish this by providing the parade, and other event sponsors, with a sufficient number of well trained and qualified Parade Judges to fulfill this obligation, relieving the sponsor of concern regarding favoritism and partiality in presenting their awards.


Our Judges are available to come to your location with a presentation on our rules and judging techniques. This can be helpful to both the parade host and the parade participants.  There is no charge for our services. Please contact our Vice
President to request a presentation or more information.
