Welcome to Chapter 1 “The Original Ones” website of the Fire & Iron Motorcycle Club. Thanks for Visiting!!
About Fire & Iron and Chapter 1:
Fire & Iron is a MC made up of Fire Fighters and all people associated with the Fire Service who enjoy riding and having good times. We are a NEUTRAL Club, We claim NO Territory and ride in respect of all other clubs and expect the same in return.
Inception: Fire & Iron started in Orange County, FL. back in 1997 (Rumor has it as 1999). The whole club started over a beer (or two) during Bike Week in Feb. 1997. Back then the only two guys that even owned a motorcycle were Joe Chez (Czesnakowicz), the 1st president and Lance Hilliard, the current president of Chapter 1. Mike Eller was our 1st VP and still belongs to Chapter 1 today as well. Our original colors were a 3 piece patch and can be viewed on Chapter 1's Website. Due to the issues with the 1% clubs and wanting to remain completely neutral we agreed to change our colors to the current ones (designed by Eller) and get away from the 3 piece set. Our 1st meeting had aprox. 15-20 people from 3 different departments, and the story goes that Chez got up to go to the bathroom and was voted in as President, all true. Moss joined us sometime around 1999/2000 and we expanded to what we are today, over a 150 Stations though out the US. Two of the founders still ride and belong to Chapter 1 today, Lance “YUMMY” Hilliard and Mike “Short Stick” Eller (now in Texas). Fire & Iron has only one Chapter however, Chapter 1”The Original Ones”, all the rest are stations.
Come see for yourself if we are not the BEST DAMN FIFREFIGHTER’S MOTORCYCLE CLUB in the county!
