The Clive Firefighters Association is an auxiliary organization independent from the Clive Fire Department, but acts in support of the department and facilitates many of the departments public relations events. The CFFA is comprised of present and past CFD members, who throughout the year volunteer their time at events which benefit both the fire department and the public. The Clive Firefighters Association depends solely on financial support directly from it's members and generous members of the community we serve.
Avenue of Flags
The Clive Firefighter’s Association offers our citizens the opportunity to display a flag in the front of their home on five holidays per year. Available in Clive only, our members acquire flags, install an in-ground holder and display the American flag from sunrise to sunset on Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veterans Day to each subscription holder. Each subscription adds to the beauty and patriotism this program displays in our city.

Clivefest Water Slide
A more recent tradition of the Clive Firefighters Association is the water slide at the Clive Festival each summer. Located between Mercy West Clinics and the Clive Aquatic Center, the CFD constructs two giant "slip-n-slides" with water provided from our ladder truck. We always have huge turnouts of kids who love to come ride the slides, but often notice the smiles on the faces of the adults often exceed those of their children!
The longest running tradition is Clive Santa Day. Each year Santa Clause makes a special visit to Clive, IA and is escorted in a fire engine down each and every street in Clive. Many past and present residents of Clive share very fond memories of the excitement they or their children felt as Santa was seen approaching their house!
Easter Egg Hunt
Santa is not the only holiday mascot that frequents our city each year! The Clive FD is also paid a visit by the Easter Bunny, providing an Easter Egg hunt for children of all ages.
