Oshawa Firefighters

Your Oshawa Firefighters care about public safety. It’s time for the City of Oshawa to put the Fire Truck and Firefighters back at Station #1, Oshawa's busiest station in the downtown core. The City of Oshawa needs to reverse the irresponsible decision made by bureaucrats to remove a fire truck from the downtown station. Have your voice heard and tell Oshawa City Council to put public safety first! ... See MoreSee Less

Wow! Seriously? Peter Dyson perhaps we should meet to discuss this further.

Was the truck reasigned ..if so where ?

Curious what all the talk about NFPA 1710 is?
Why are your Oshawa Firefighters asking the
City of Oshawa to implement the recommendations contained in a scientific report released last year?
How is your safety impacted?
This video that explains the internationally accepted standard and how it affects your families safety. Now is the time for the City of Oshawa to implement changes to put your families safety first.

...this is a very passive aggressive, not to mention, childish way of saying, Volunteer Fire companies are ill prepared to help. Which, in my humble opinion, is wrong I’m curious about what NFPA 1710 says about how many firefighters need to be dispatched to a rural structure fire.

Oshawa Firefighters in our community spreading fire safety messages. Always happy to meet with Oshawa’s future leaders. #checkyoursmokealarms #repost @theashleytaylorteam .

The Oshawa Professional Firefighters Association (OPFFA) represents the men and women that make up the Oshawa Fire Service. The Association has a long a proud history in the community of Oshawa. In 1936 the Oshawa Professional Firefighters became affiliated with the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF).

The IAFF was formed in 1918 when 24 locals with 36 delegates representing firefighters from across North American gathered in Washington, DC. The first order of business for this group of firefighters was to adopt a constitution and bylaws then that was followed by decisions that included publishing a firefighting magazine, a salary structure for officers and creating a firefighters fund to benefit orphaned children of firefighters.

The founding group of firefighters worked hard to unite in order to improve working conditions for the fire service which suffered form long working hours (84 hour work weeks), low wages, and minimal safety standards. This affected not only their own lives, but the service they were able to give to their communities.

Over the years the IAFF has been instrumental in areas of occupational health and safety, working towards fire-based emergency medical services, hazardous materials training, RIT training and many more.

The OPFFA, also known as IAFF Local 465 works to ensure that the firefighters that protect the City of Oshawa are treated fairly and with respect. The OPFFA represents members in all divisions of the fire department; Suppression, Training, Mechanical, Prevention and Communications.

The OPFFA is also a member of the Ontario Professional Firefighters Association.

The OPFFA is active in our community, the City of Oshawa, through the benevolent committee, that’s works to raise money each year through donations that can in turn be donated to support local charities and organizations. The largest event is the annual boot toll that takes place at the end of the summer at the Oshawa Center.

The Association is run through a democratic process by the Executive Board that is made up a President, Vice President, Secretary-Treasurer, and Executive Assistant.

For more information on the Association and how the Association works in our community please email info@iaff465.com

 

We Do More Than Save Lives!

 Oshawa Fire Fighters would like to thank everyone who has supported our donation drives throughout the years. With the generosity of our friends, we have been able to provide the community throughout the Oshawa area with funds designed to help the public and Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Through our non-profit charity, Oshawa Fire Fighters continue to support local area programs and services as well as the MDC.
