People always ask us “Are you guys part of Toronto Fire?” and the simplest answer to that is yes and no.
No, we are not staff of TFS (Toronto Fire Service). We are members of the Greater Toronto Multiple Alarm Association (GTMAA) and we operate Toronto Fire Support 7 on behalf of TFS and the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters Association.
The first responders always smile when they see us. They are so appreciative when we arrive on scene, no matter the hour of the day, grateful for a snack and something to drink.
Our club motto is “serving those that protect us” which our members see as a privilege to fulfill.
We are as grateful for the camaraderie and appreciation we receive. Toronto firefighters open their fire halls, their homes for 24 hours at a time, and welcome us in with open arms. Every year in June we get the pleasure to go to Station 334 where we have a BBQ with our club members and guests. We cook dinner for everyone including the crew on duty. We are offered the opportunity to go for a private tour of the harbour while we are there. We want to thank the crews that have hosted us over the years for this amazing honour. It is truly one of our club events that is looked forward to every year!!
