Veterans Association


The Windsor Fire Department Veterans' Association is an organization of retired
members of the Windsor Fire Department with sixteen or more years of service.

Members of the association have held various executive and committee positions
including the rank of Chief. These veterans have also served as drivers, safety
officers and firefighters in general. As members continue to do so today, veteran
members have put in countless hours of training and continue to offer advise and
encouragement to newer members. 

On a regular basis veterans can be found playing snooker and teaching younger
members of the department the "finer points" of the game. It is always interesting
when one of these games is played!

The Veterans' Association also selects a member from the active department each year
to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to the fire service. Also
administered by the association is the WFD Veterans' Memorial Museum housed in the
basement of the fire station at 100 King Street.

This group of dedicated volunteers remains committed to assisting the active
membership in any way they can whether it be at a fire call or fundraising function.
With hundreds of years of experience to draw on, the veterans are an integral part
of this fire fighting family and organization.

Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of January, March, May, September, and
November at 7 pm at the fire hall. Veterans from any other fire department
interested in starting their own association are encouraged to attend.
