How We Help

The Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society works to meet identified needs by understanding the needs of our Firefighting community and working to respond proactively to those needs. We hope to improve the outcomes that may be experienced during illness or any other adverse issues an individual or their family might face.

How Do We Do This?

The Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society was put in place to offer assistance to those in need by:

  • providing assistance by acting as a liaison to community resources through our agency partners;
  • helping firefighters and their families in times of need through aid and volunteer services;
  • providing referrals to specialist services where appropriate;
  • working in conjunction with other agencies and the Calgary Fire Department to ensure fair, reliable and efficient service to our CFD members;
  • identifying cross-cutting issues that affect the Firefighting community and working with others to ensure a permanent proactive response is put in place to address these issues.

In all instances, we seek to find the assistance needed. Please let us know if we can assist.
