Firefighter Costume Ideas

While comic-book heroes battle imaginary villains, the real-life heroes take on the more imminent dangers of the world. Firemen and women voluntarily walk into danger every single day in order to keep the public safe. While their primary duty may be to extinguish fires and bring the nearby people to safety, they do so much more on a daily basis. From responding to car accidents and natural disasters to helping educate people regarding fire safety, these true superheroes have many powers. Pay homage to these men and women by dressing up as a firefighter at your next costume party.

No matter your age, you can dress up as a fireman or firewoman. Adult costumes range from rugged to steamy hot, while little kids' costumes are the perfect launching pad for the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” What little kid doesn’t want to dress up in the full firefighter uniform and prepare to save lives? Start your young one on a noble path by encouraging his or her admiration for these heroes.
