Chattanooga Firefighters Join Nation-wide “Fill the Boot” Campaign


Chattanooga, Tennessee – This week, the local fire department of Chattanooga joins the nation-wide campaign, “Fill the Boot”. Firefighters across the country regularly participate in this effort aligned with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), aiming to raise funds for research, treatments, therapies, and the support of MD families. The 2024 Fill the Boot Drive in Chattanooga will occur this week, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. through Saturday, May 11.

Fund Raising for the Community

The Chattanooga firefighters will be on the streets, with boots in hand, seeking kind-hearted donations from the public. While the MDA primarily supports research into treatments and therapies for muscular dystrophy, its purpose extends to providing high-quality care for MD families nationwide, making the donations even more meaningful.
It should be noted that no streets or intersections will be closed as a result of this campaign. Donations can be made both in-person and online.

Where to Find the Firefighters

Here is where you can find the Chattanooga firefighters participating in the Fill the Boot Drive:

  • Engine 1 – Market St & Main St
  • Ladder 1 – Main St. & Central
  • Squad 1 – Broad St. & Aquarium Way
  • and many more.

    Supporting the Cause

    Taking part in this community event raises awareness of the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s mission, and contributes to a cause that directly benefits the people around us. The work done by the MDA impacts hundreds of thousands of people across the country, and any donations, big or small, can help make a significant difference.

    The firefighters’ campaign shows that community support can come in many forms, from the bonding of the firefighters to the hundreds of donors who spare a moment and a dollar to contribute to a cause.

    Chattanooga, let’s come together and support our firefighters and the MDA in this campaign. Let’s fill those boots!
