Fire buckets make memorable gifts for retirements, service awards, special achievements, memorials, weddings, and anniversaries. They are also great for fundraising as auctions pieces, raffle prizes, and door prizes.The leather fire buckets on this page are our most popular styles.

Why do we use new bunker gear fabric?
There is quite a bit of information about the cancer-causing chemicals that firefighters are exposed to during a fire. These chemicals can become embedded into the fabrics and are difficult, if not impossible, to remove. So why take the additional risk? Your job is risky enough.
We are firefighter owned and managed
Our founder is a retired career firefighter from Central Texas. In 2009, he started The Fire Center, a NFPA 1851 verified repair facility. Shortly after that, he started making bags with the fabric used to repair bunker gear. These items first launched at the 2010 TEEX Municipal Fire School in College Station TX. In 2015 he sold The Fire Center and directed his attention on creating these firefighter products.
