Our Newsletter

The Third Alarm which is published six times a year is the OFBA’s own newsletter. Each issue includes club news & events, news from the fire world, fire department rosters, apparatus photos, historical information and more. We added colour photos to our cover in 2005.

The OFBA appointed Desmond Brett as the editor of our Third Alarm Newsletter in 2010.

Des succeeds longtime editor  Walt McCall. Walto served the club in this capacity for thirty-seven years.

We have also published brief histories of two Canadian Fire Apparatus builders – “The Bickle Story” and “The Canadian Lafrance Story.”
