Many of our members play on the hockey team.  Our team plays both in recreational and competitive games across the Province.

 

Colour Guard

Our Colour Guard represents the department in a variety of formal settings including parades, funerals and other special events.

They "troop the colours" whenever possible, showing local, provincial and Canadianflags, along with the US flag to show solidarity.

Muscular Dystrophy Boot Drive

 

MD Boot Drive

Each year, the Ajax Professional Fire Fighters' Association, with the support of the fire department, hold their annual Boot Drive in support of Muscular Dystrophy Canada. In 2011, Ajax Fire and Emergency Services was named "Ontario Fire Department of the Year" by Muscular Dystrophy.  

 In 2016 alone, Ajax Fire and Emergency Services raised over $23,000, bringing their total donation to $150,000 since 2009

Muscular Dystrophy affects tens of thousands of Canadians, and refers to a group of hereditary and non-hereditary muscle diseases characterized by a progressive weakening of muscles, hampering the ability to move. The aim of Muscular Dystrophy Canada is to support research and to improve the lives of people living with the condition.

 

 


 

 

Tim Hortons Camp Day

Members of Ajax Fire and Emergency Services are happy to lend their support annually
at Tim Hortons Camp Day. 

Working along side local Tim Hortons staff, our crews staffed both the store front and
the drive through to help Tim Hortons raise money to send over 9,000 kids, who
could otherwise not afford it, on the camping adventure of a lifetime.  

For more information on these or any other special teams, groups or events, contact
Deputy Fire Chief Aaron Burridge by E-mail.
