What makes Commitment Weekend unique?

There is no other event like this for firefighters and their spouse.  

We talk a little firefighting and a little marriage but mostly we design the event for building a community and support network.

You will find other firefighter couples who will become friends for life.  

There may be no other safe relationship to vent about marriage topics and find healthy resolution from those in your life who are cheering for your marriage to be amazing.

Take a look at some of our past Commitment Weekends
Big thanks to Shawn Sebo for capturing so much of the "Fire Wife Touch-a-Truck" event at the 2014 Commitment Weekend (formerly called FlameFest)  Here's just some of the highlight reel!

"Because we went to Commitment Weekend, we finally have other fire couples who have the same values, morals and marriage goals that we do. And it wouldn't have happened without this group!!! We totally found our tribe!"

~Brittani C.

"A single video could never explain the vastness of how incredible this organization is. It saved my marriage - hands down, no questions asked. I wish my public service family had something like it when I was growing up."

-Shai B.

Firefighters Enjoy Commitment Weekend, too! 

"A few years ago I humored my wife, like many do, and agreed halfheartedly to go to Commitment Weekend with her.  I found, as well as I believe everyone there found, a new “family.”  You know there is a bond within the brotherhood.   But this group is more."

-Shawn S.
