The San Diego Firefighters Emerald Society is a fraternal organization for the firefighters of San Diego County that was formed in 2000, for those who share an interest in the Gaelic heritage, and wish to continue the fine traditions that have made firefighting the great profession that it is today. Gaelic heritage is not required for membership.
The San Diego Firefighters Emerald Society has a Pipe and Drum band that participates throughout the year at parades, funerals, and special events. We support the community as a representation of goodwill through education, assistance programs, sponsorships and numerous other events.
The San Diego Firefighters Emerald Society is active at the annual Firehouse World Convention held each year and hosts an "Irish Breakfast" and beverage party the morning of the Annual San Diego St. Patricks Day Parade for all firefighters and family members. We also hold an annual "Firefighters Christmas Ball" each year in December.
We are an IRS approved non-profit 501 (3) (c) organization.
