Sometime in the fall of 2007, Chaos
came up with an idea for a new firefighters motorcycle club. Chaos worked up a design for the first colors in late 2007 and after the artwork was done, the name Inferno Firefighters MC came to be. After talking with Bull, Chaos and Bull came up with the name of Knights of the Inferno Firefighters MC. After speaking with the rest of the Original Seven charter members, the name was approved. The first meeting of the Knights of the Inferno FFMC took place in February of 2008. Chaos, Bull, and some of the Original Seven charter members were part of a local chapter of the Red Knights International MC before they resigned in April 2008. An artist reworked our colors in April of 2008 and our first stitched set of colors was born.We received a loan from a local business and all the Original Seven members chipped in to buy our first twelve sets of colors. Then in March of 2009, the colors were reworked and our new colors were born. In July of 2008 we became a New Jersey non-profit organization with the help of Original Seven member Dallas. In the time that we have been around, we have gone out to support many local charities and fellow emergency & military service members in need. We have been expanding rapidly with chapters all over the United Sates, Canada, and Europe. We have built a bond between us, not only as emergency, military, and civilians, but as fellow riders, and above all as BROTHERS!
The Knights of the Inferno Firefighter/Military Motorcycle Club
Our membership is open to active or retired firefighters, EMS, military service members, OEM members, their families, and select friends who enjoy riding. The emergency & military services are a brotherhood and we are all loyal to our duty, our community, and our club. The words brotherhood and loyalty are part of our colors and that is the foundation on which the club is based. We are a independent club and a registered Non-Profit Organization that has a passion for riding and fun. We ride to remember all of our fallen club brothers, our fallen and injured emergency and military service members, and to assist them in any way possible. We will assist the community at large anytime we are called upon to do so.
We are elite among emergency service clubs and will only accept the best that stand for what the club is based on, BROTHERHOOD and LOYALTY. Membership to the club is selective and not guaranteed because we believe in quality of members over quantity. It's not easy to become one of us and the path to become a patch holder is earned by hard work and dedication. We are not a motorcycle manufacturer specific club and all types of street motorcycles are accepted. We are expanding with Chapters in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
