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.

The result of the amalgamation saw the 6 firefighter associations merge into one. This site was created with the hope of fostering a means for former but still active and retired firefighters and friends of the former Scarborough Fire Department and IAFF Local 626 to keep in touch and pass information through the electronic medium known as the internet. The goal is to keep it simple, hopefully informative, and with the assistance of both retired and active members, it’s hoped that we will expand on the bit of history and other pages already posted within the site. If you have something that may be of interest please feel free to contact us.
