Compete or Volunteer

Calling all firefighters and chefs! Turn up the heat for a great cause by competing in the 2019 Iron Skillet® Cook Off!


On Monday, October 7th at the Iconic Federal Hall National Memorial, five firefighter-chef teams will present their best dish to a panel of celebrity judges and guests to win the 2019 Iron Skillet® Championship.

Firefighters will choose your favorite recipe to compete with and be paired with a professional chef. Together, each team will perfect the firefighter’s recipe, in preparation to make the final dish into tasting-sized portions.

We are grateful to our teams who dedicate their time and talents to make this night a huge success and raise funds to honor and protect our Ready Responders. Ready responders are a diverse group of people who choose to help others in times of disaster and crisis. This includes average citizens, disaster volunteers, veterans, and first responders.

Be ready to be on TV! Our friends at iHeartMedia and PIX-11 will cover the event. Kirstin Cole from PIX-11 will be cheering us on during their Morning Show and will emcee the evening’s competition.

All funds raised reducing the harm, suffering, caused by disasters and protect our Ready Responders through training, communication tools and the provision of Personal Protective Equipment.
