Thompson Square continued its streak in 2013, once again securing the ACM for “Vocal Duo of the Year.”
In all, Thompson Square has scored three No. 1 hits, six Top 20 hits, seven mainstream industry awards more than 25 award nominations and appeared on major media franchises from The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, CBS This Morning to Elle, Glamour, People, Rolling Stone, USA Today, USA Weekend and many more.
“Your support means a lot. We sincerely hope that our actions will warrant your continued support in the future,” said PFFPNC President Tom Brewer. “The fire fighters of our nation are rated as having one of the most hazardous occupations in terms of death and injury. Working with citizens of North Carolina communities, perhaps we can change these statistics.”

Across the state of North Carolina, local organizations of the Professional Fire Fighters and Paramedics of North Carolina and the International Associate of Fire Fighters host bi-annual concerts to raise funds for fire education in their communities. Your support helps the more than 3,200 professional fire fighters, paramedics and emergency medical technicians in their efforts to take a pro-active approach to fire safety laws and community services throughout the state.
By purchasing a concert ticket or voucher, you are enabling us to carry on with the many outstanding projects and other member benefits that are close to the heart of the fire fighters. The money raised through these fundraising concerts goes back into the community as fire fighters participate in the following programs:
Fire Safety Coloring Books – These publications provide local 2nd grade classrooms fire safety and fire prevention education. This is an interactive approach to get children and their parents/guardians more involved to learn proper exit strategies and skills in the event of a house fire.
Camp Celebrate – A weekend camp for children ages 7-15 who have survived traumatic burn injuries. Activities at Camp Celebrate include swimming, canoeing, arts and crafts, as well as an opportunity to meet other kids who share the experience of having been burned.
Jaycee Burn Center – Supporting the burn center at UNC Hospital where the Fire Fighters go if they are injured on duty. It is also the best burn center in the state for children, assisting local families of burn victims with extraneous expenses, such as travel to and from the center.
Fallen Fire Fighters Fund – To provide resources and assist the families of fire fighters that were injured or lost their lives in the line of duty, and to work within the fire service community to help reduce fire fighter death and injury through legislation and better training.
Burned-Out Response – Working hand in hand with the Red Cross to provide food, clothing and shelter to local house fire victims.
Life Saving Smoke Detector Programs – Providing smoke detectors to families that cannot afford them.
Coats for Kids – Community outreach program established through collaboration with Operation Warm, Inc. to help children in poverty survive and thrive by providing brand new, made in the USA winter coats and bringing warmth to needy children in our area.
