Welcome to

the SouthSide F.O.O.L.S.

Keep an eye here for information regarding the 2020 Annual F.O.O.L.S. Convention in Orlando, Florida.

As FOOLS, we are proud of the rich tradition and brotherhood of the fire service. As such, we like to make spectacle of our SouthSide brothers, as they move up the ranks or are honored in some special way by their department, community, or the rest of the chapter.

2019 SouthSide FOOL of the Year

What better man, leader, and mentor to so many to receive the 2019 SouthSide FOOL of the Year award.  Chief Mac will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Special Recognition

The SouthSide FOOLS would like to recognize Becky and Bree who have been instrumental in helping us raise funds and create awareness for firefighter behavioral health issues.  We couldn't do what we do without these two ladies!
