Firefighter Appreciation Day (FFAD)

Event Date: October 1, 2016

 

Please Support the Brotherhood.


We are excited to announce our plans for the return of Firefighter Appreciation Day (FFAD) to benefit The Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation (CFFF)! This year’s event, the 6th annual, kicks off on Saturday, October 1st, 2016 at Reebok CrossFit FirePower in Milton.

Founded in 2009, FFAD has raised over $30,000 for the CFFF, a registered charity that honours and remembers firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty, and supports their families.


FFAD is a fitness challenge like no other! The idea is to provide average civilians an opportunity to experience the physical de-mands that a firefighter faces every day on the job. It’s also a chance for current firefighters and other 911’s to test their cur-rent fitness levels and see how they measure up!


With the support of the Milton Fire Department, Toronto Fire Services and Toronto Fire Union who donate supplies and equip-ment, teams of 4 compete in a series of workouts that simulate various scenarios. These workouts require strength, endurance, and team strategy.


How can you help?


We all know that great things can happen when a community comes together, and as such, we are respectfully requesting your support. A contribution in any of the following areas will help us raise critical funds that will directly benefit the families of our fallen brothers:

Cash Sponsorships – various levels, excellent benefits and community exposure
Auction/Prize Donations – gift certificates, event tickets, dining, electronics, etc.
Product Donations – provide product for our participant swag bags
Vendor Participation – join our vendor village, great promotional opportunity!


To confirm your support of FFAD or for more information on how you can get involved, please contact Jennifer Young by phone at (647)239-3525 or by email to turtle@reebokcrossfitfirepower.com .


For more information about FFAD or the CFFF, please visit: www.firefighterappreciationday.ca. Thank you!


Yours truly,
2016 FFAD Committee Member

6th Annual Lethbridge 9-11 Memorial Stairclimb

Event Date: September 11, 2016

When: Sun, September 11, 2016 - 01:30 PM MDT

Where: Lethbridge Center Tower (east doors by TD bank) 400 4 Ave S

Why: This stair climb commemorates the loss of 343 firefighters and 70 law enforcement members that died on Sept 11, 2001. The challenge is to retrace the ascent (and descent) of the 110 stories of the WTC – this equals 10 “laps” of The Lethbridge Center Tower.

The Stairclimb is a physically demanding activity in that the goal is always to achieve a climb (and descent) of 110 stories. This distance is the equivalent distance of the height of the World Trade Center as it stood before the attacks of 9-11. It is believed that many rescuers would have made a similar climb that day and unfortunately many never returned home.

We make this climb in order to honour those we lost in the line of duty and to ensure that we never forget them. Participants are encouraged to ask for sponsors in the form of pledges in order to raise money for the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

Registration is now open: https://raceroster.com/events/2016/9745/lethbridge-9-11-memorial-stairclimb

2016 Ladders Up for the Foundation Auction & Reception

Event Date: April 30, 2016

 

Ladders Up for the Foundation online auction and reception


Ladders Up for the Foundation is a charitable event and online auction held annually to raise funds for the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The event takes place every spring during the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs Conference in Toronto and features live music, great food, prize draws and immeasurable networking opportunities. In the months leading up to the event, companies and organizations donate goods and/or services, which are then posted on our auction website. Many fire personnel visit the auction website to bid on the donated items.


Funds raised from the auction and during the event go to support the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation, which honors firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty and to help support their families. Every dollar raised from this event goes towards the foundation’s education fund for the families of fallen firefighters. Since the inception of Ladders Up, we have raised more than $100,000 for this important charity.


The 2016 Ladders Up for the Foundation reception is on April 30th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel located at 33 Carlson Court in Toronto from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The online auction launches on March 1st.


We are still in need of items for the online auction site and prizes to raffle during the event. We hope you will consider donating an item. Your donation can be in the form of a product, service or any specialty item (gift cards, electronics, excursions etc). In exchange for your support, your company will be recognized as a contributor on the auction website and during the reception. It is a great opportunity to elevate your brand all while supporting those in need in the fire service. You can view the online auction site at www.laddersup.ca


Donating is easy! Complete our online donation form at www.oafc.on.ca/ladders-donation-form. Once you complete the form, we will be in touch with you. For more information about the event you can contact one of our committee members listed below, or visit our website at www.firefightingincanada.com/laddersup/.


Thank you in advance; we hope you will consider supporting this great event!

Climbing For Our Fallen

Event Date: September 11, 2012

FIREFIGHTERS AND THE PUBLIC ALIKE CLIMB THE
CALGARY TOWER FOR 9/11 AND CANADA’S FALLEN


Calgary -- Today at 6:00pm Firefighters and members the public from across Calgary and Alberta will gather to commemorate and remember not only the tragic events of 9/11 but the selfless contributions made by Canada's Firefighters every day.


“The climb is not a race,” says Chad Sartison, Chair of Firefighters1st, Board Member of the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation and Captain at the Foothills Fire Department in Heritage Pointe. “Rather, it is an opportunity to reflect on how our world has changed since 9/11 and perhaps more importantly we remember and recognize the 1111 Canadian firefighters who have fallen in service to the community.”


Sartison continues “Many of the firefighters climbing today have only just returned from Ottawa last night where the Canadian Firefighters Memorial, the Canada’s newest national monument, was officially opened by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, as a permanent and public commemoration of the honour and sacrifice of every Canadian firefighter who has
died in the line of duty since 1848.”


Many of the firefighters who attended the unveiling of the memorial in Ottawa yesterday attended on their own dime. “It is humbling,” said Sartison, “to be involved in a profession where passion and commitment to each other and the community permeate every aspect of your profession. Over 80% of Canada’s firefighters are volunteer which serves as a great metaphor to our commitment to community and service.”


The climb is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to show up to cheer on and climb beside their firefighters. Registration is $34.30 signifying the 343 firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11 and can be completed on arrival. The event will start at 6:00pm at the base of the Calgary Tower with the climb starting at 6:30. Donations can also be made at http://thefirewithin.ca/shop/product_detail.html?id=45.


Proceeds raised will be forwarded to the Canadian and National Fallen Firefighters Foundations to help the families of the fallen. Every year the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation awards bursaries and scholarships to the children of our fallen and memorializes and honours their contribution with their families in September.


WHAT: “CLIMBING FOR OUR FALLEN” HONOURING FIREFIGHTERS ON 9/11
WHO: CANADA’S FIREFIGHTERS AND THE PUBLIC THEY SERVE
WHERE: CALGARY TOWER
WHEN: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11 BEGINNING AT 6:00 P.M.

A Ride of Respect

Event Date: September 9, 2012

A Ride of Respect
September 2012


The purpose of this motorcycle ride will be to respect the Canadian Firefighters that have died in the line of duty and are being memorialized on the new Canadian Fallen Firefighter Foundation (CFFF) National Wall of Remembrance in Ottawa to be dedicated on September 9, 2012.

Surrey Fire Services Retired Captain Tim Baillie and Captain Brian Green will be riding to Ottawa to be on hand when the wall is officially dedicated. We will be riding the entire approximately 4600 km there and then back to show our respect for the sacrifices these firefighters made.

Riders can join us for as long or as short a ride as you wish. We will be responsible only for ourselves and accommodations as it is impossible to know if anyone will join us and for what length of the ride. All kinds and forms of motorcycles and vehicles are welcome.

The schedule of the ride will be:

• August 31 - Start from the Peace Arch at 09:00 going to Salmon Arm BC,  431 km
• September 1 - Salmon Arm BC to Calgary Alta,  512 km
• September 2 - Calgary Alta to Regina Sask, 757km
• September 3 - Regina Sask to Winnipeg Man, 574 km
• September 4 - Rest Day
• September 5 - Winnipeg Man to Thunder Bar Ont, 696 km
• September 6 - Thunder Bay Ont to Sault Ste. Marie Ont, 698 km

Tentative

• September 7 - Sault Ste. Marie Ont to Toronto Ont, 683 km
• September 8 - Toronto Ont to Ottawa Ont,  418 km    or

• September 7 - Sault Ste. Marie Ont to Ottawa Ont, 794 km

The last leg is not set as we have to assess the last leg and possibly have a change of an extra day from Toronto Ont to Ottawa Ont. That decision will be made as time nears but people will be welcome to do as they wish. It would be on objective for us to ride into Ottawa as a group to make the experience just that little bit better. Thanks for your attention.

If more information is desired, please contact Tim Baillie at baillie161@shaw.ca

Sincerely

Tim Baillie, Brian Green

Ladders Up For the Foundation

Event Date: May 5, 2012

In 2011, at FDIC in Indianapolis, a group of fire-service manufacturers and suppliers attended an event called Stop, Drop, Rock & Roll, a fundraiser for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation in the United States. The question on our minds was, Why aren’t we doing this in Canada?

Ladders Up for the Foundation is the brainchild of Mark Prendergast of M&L Supply. That night in Indy, Mark successfully bid on a commemorative 9-11 helmet that became instantly famous among those attending the conference.

Mark wanted to make the same impact in Canada for the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation. So, a committee was formed. Barry Malmsten and Mercedes Foulon from the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC), Catherine Connolly with Fire Fighting in Canada, Canadian Firefighter and EMS Quarterly, and Firehall.com, David Sheen with Toronto Fire Services and CFFF chairman, Kip Cosgrove with VFIS, and, of course, Mark. This group has worked together for many months to bring this exciting event to life.

Many vendors have donated items for auction and we anticipate this event and fundraiser to be a great success.

Proceeds will go to the CFFF to help build the monument in Ottawa.

Ladders Up will be an annual event at the OAFC conference. Each year we will endeavor to raise money for the foundation, and once the monument is built, the proceeds will go to help the families of fallen firefighters and go toward maintenance of the monument.

Below are the details of this inaugural event. Any fire department in Canada can bid on the items. Let’s all work together to build a monument that will truly honour our fallen firefighters.


The event

All the efforts of Ladders Up For the Foundation will be celebrated at a fantastic event on Saturday, May 5! Winning bidders for the online items will be announced, and a silent auction will take place. Live entertainment and appetizers will be provided. Come celebrate our success in raising funds and awareness for this worthy cause!
