The London Fire Department has a rich history dating back to the 1800s. A part of that tradition includes the “Bucket Brigade,” which at times was called upon to mitigate the destruction of fire in the community. While primitive, the hand-to-hand method represented a coming together of community members and firefighters to overcome tragedy through teamwork and determination. The London Bucket Brigade was formed by LPFFA members to establish a charity arm to raise funds for emergency first responders needing help. On January 19th, 2019, a group of London firefighters re-establish the London Bucket Brigade and invited everyone to attend “Buckets for Brandan” at the Aeolian Hall for our inaugural fundraising event. The community joined us for live music from local artists, local craft beer and a historical display of fire department memorabilia by retired Fire Chief, Jim Fitzgerald, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the London Professional Fire Fighters Association.
The one constant that dates back to the origins of firefighting is their involvement in the community volunteering in public safety education and participation in charity initiatives. It is through these volunteering opportunities that we want London to meet and get to know the individuals staffing your local fire hall, visiting your kid’s schools teaching fire safety and providing a highly skilled emergency service that protects the future of our city.
The London Professional Firefighters association are proud to be involved with London Bucket Brigade events. Each year our PR committee works with our membership and organizes our off-duty members to participate in the many great charity initiatives in our community. Each year the LPFFA supports our key firefighter bases charities and proudly assist with many community initiatives. Many charity events require on duty firefighters and our vehicles or the use of firehalls for the events. We are proud to partner with the City of London, London Fire Department for many successful events.
