St. Florian is the patron saint of firefighters and floods. A St. Florian coin is a nice gift for firefighters, said to give them courage and protect them even in the most dangerous situations. St. Florian became a saint for refusing to obey commands to persecute Christians. He became the patron saint of firefighters because he was the leader of a Roman fire brigade.
St Florian was born around 250 A.D. He was commander of the imperial army of Roman and a secret Christian, who, in addition to his military duties, was responsible for organizing firefighting brigades. According to legend, Florian once stopped a town from burning by praying and throwing a single bucket of water on the blaze. When Florian was ordered to execute a group of Christians, he refused, professing his own faith in Christ. He cheerfully accepted the beatings of the other soldiers, who tortured him with clubs, spikes and fire. Around 304 A.D., he was ultimately executed by being drowned in the Enns River with a stone tied around his neck. He is remembered today as the patron of firefighters.
