DC’s Friendship Fire Association Seeks Volunteers to Support First Responders

Thursday, 28 February 2008

The volunteer branch of the Washington, DC Fire & EMS Department is looking for community members who are interested in providing occasional assistance to first responders during field emergency service. The volunteers, known as the Friendship Fire Association (FFA), staff the fire department's Canteen Unit, Rehab Unit, and the DC Fire & EMS Museum.

The Canteen Unit and/or the Rehab Unit respond to all multi-alarm fires and major public safety emergency events in the Nation's Capital, providing refreshments and medical rehabilitation services for firefighters and other emergency personnel. Museum personnel give guided tours and staff the department's 4,000-square-foot display on the top floor of a historic firehouse on Capitol Hill.

If you have an interest in the fire/rescue service and have an average of four hours a week of your time to donate, FFA is looking for a few new members who live primarily inside the Capital Beltway surrounding Washington, DC. For information, contact FFA President Walter Gold at 202-439-1936, or write to Secretary Michael DeWalt, FFA, c/o Engine Co. 3, 439 New Jersey Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20001. For more information about FFA, visit www.friendshipfire.org.
