About Us

Scarborough Ontario is the area that forms the eastern part of the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was a separate city for over 200 years. It has been part of the ‘East District’ of Toronto Fire Services since 1998 when five cities and one borough were amalgamated by the Ontario government.

That amalgamation saw six IAFF firefighter associations – East York (L418), Etobicoke (L1137), North York (L752), Scarborough (L626), Toronto (L113), and York (L411) merge into one; the Toronto Professional Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 3888.

This site was created for former, active, and retired firefighters and friends of the former Scarborough Fire Department and IAFF Local 626 to stay connected and share information through the internet. We aim to keep it simple, informative, and updated with the help of our members. We also hope to preserve and celebrate the history and achievements of our association and department. if you have any suggestions, feedback, or contributions please do not hesitate to contact us.
