Carry this challenge coin, honoring brave ones who answer God’s call for those in danger, or as a unifying symbol of courage, selflessness, and valor. In the hell of an inferno, when all you can do is pray… pray for a fire fighter.
Fire respects no clock nor adheres to any calendar, so twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year fire fighters risk their lives to save others. Nearly as old as civilization itself, fire fighting has seen changes in techniques and advancements to equipment. But the steadfast mettle and selflessness never alters, and continues to glow brightly in every fire fighter who takes the oath to serve and protect.
When lives are in danger, God gives you fire fighters.
Minted in the U.S. from special deep-relief coining dies, struck from solid bronze, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this challenge coin is dedicated to all heroic fire fighters. The obverse displays an impressively detailed fire fighter, geared-up and dashing through flames. Flanking his hurrying legs, the words “YOU PRAYED FOR HELP” and “GOD SENT ME” speak of the divine intervention that is a fire fighter and the prayers he answers. The reverse depicts fire fighters of days passed, charging to thwart the flames. The remainder of the reverse is blank for a personalized engraving.
Give this symbol of courage and valor to recognize outstanding service, a thank you for a life saved, or carry it as a token of solidarity amongst department members.
Each coin measures 1.75 inches (44mm) in diameter.
