    Default Slogan Suggestions - Need your help!

    We are looking at creating 300 or so T-Shirts for fund raising. We are in need of a catchy slogan for the back as our chief wants to stay away from the cross for these shrits.

    So for the front we are just going to have standard text with our department name. Garfield Twp. Fire Department.

    The city we live in is Lake. So on our last shirts (department shirts) we had "I fight fires in the middle of Lake, Michigan" that shirt always catches attention.

    I would really appreciate your help in coming up with some catchy slogans. If we use your slogan on the shirt I will give you a free one.

    Thanks!

    Maybe something with your lead engine coming up out of water, with a beware of the Lake monster??

    All payments can be made with a copy of the shirt!

    Great ones guys, I am going to print these off and take them to the station tonight for people to look over.

    We have to be careful because I am sure there might be kids wearing these shirts, so we want to make them somewhat neutral. But great ideas for department shirts too

    Keep em coming and thanks a lot!
