Welcome To The CPFFA Website

The Cambridge Professional Fire Fighters' Association, Local 499, consists of 130 dedicated and committed team members serving the citizens of the City of Cambridge since 1973.  Our Association is honoured to serve, protect and assist our community in many different capacities, from our sworn obligations to the fire service, Muscular Dystrophy fundraising, Christmas Basket Fund and our Benevolent Fund.

We are Trusted and Valued in Our Community.

 

Our fundraising efforts saw us collect donations in execess of $59,000 over the last 2 years in 2012 and 2013.  Since 1969 have raised more than $500,000 for Muscular Dystrophy, providing funding for a cure and assisting children and adults in our community who have been diagnosed with MD.  In 2012 our MD committee chair Keith Clarke was awarded the prestigious award as Firefighter of the year in Ontario by MD Canada due to his involvement and our committee's fundraising efforts over the last few years.

  

The members of the CPFFA have been honoured to recieve the MD Canada Danielle Campo Award twice for their efforts in the fight against MD recently in 2013, and previously in 2011.

   

The Cambridge Firefighters Christmas Basket Fund has assisted families in our community enjoy Christmas dinner and provided presents for their children.  We have raised over $40,000 in 2011 to provide Christmas dinner for 550 families.  This 92 year old tradition has helped over 20,000 families. 

         

Our Benevolent Fund assists people and groups from our community that require financial assistance in their time of need.  We have given an average of $6,000 per year for many years.  Our members commit to this financial obligation to give something back to our great community.

      

Without the dedication of our members and their families we would not be able to help so many people in our community.  Thank you to our members and their families!


 

This year (2014)we were able to assist nearly 550 families in need in cambridge this year. The Cambridge Professional Fire Fighters' Association, Local 499, consists of 130 dedicated and committed association members and volunteers from the community serving the citizens of the City of Cambridge since 1921

      

Without the dedication of our members, their families, and the generous volunteers of our community we would not be able to help so many people in need of assistance at this time of year in our community.  Thank you to our members, their families our decicated community volunteers, and the generous people of our community! 

  

This team effort proves we are Valued in Our Community!

 

Sincerely, Cambridge Professional Fire Fighters Association.
