The Axemen M/C was founded in the Detroit Metro Area in March of 1998. There were 12 founding members. The purpose of forming this club was to have a club exclusive to IAFF members, working or retired.
Our Founding Chapter ( Michigan Chapter 1 ) is located in the Detroit metro area. Charity rides and other events organized by the Axemen generate funds which we donate to various charities, the majority among those being fire fighter related. Others include burn prevention, veterans and the MDA.
As of January, 2013, we have 25 chapters, located throughout Michigan, Ohio, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, South Carolina, Washington State, Kansas, Tesas and Wisconsin.
June 2008 Illinois Chapter 1 was officially formed.
