The Krewe of Saint Florian is a Tampa area charitable organization. Since 1999 our efforts have raised tens of thousands of dollars for local bay area charities. Our krewe organizational structure is model in the paramilitary style leadership (as within the professional fire service).
The Krewe of Saint Florian Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our main objective is to donate time and money to local Tampa Bay area charities.
The Krewe of Saint Florian was established as a charitable organization in 1999. Originally formed exclusively of City of Tampa firefighters, today our krewe is comprised of members from around the state of Florida.
A "Florian" krewe member is an active or retired professional firefighter. A prospective krewe member must be sponsored by a current member in good standing. When membership applications are received (during open membership period), the application will be reviewed and voted on by the members of the Executive Board. Once accepted as a member of the krewe, the new member will participate in a one year probationary period. As a member of our krewe, you will be expected to attend krewe meetings and participate in charity functions.
A "Flame" of the Krewe of Saint Florians is a wife, husband (or domestic partner) of a Saint Florian member. Our krewe Flames are a very intrical part of our krewe participation. Much of our charitable efforts are greatly influenced by the hard work of the krewe flames.
