The Ontario Fire Buff Associates is an Ontario, Canada based group of fire service enthusiasts, “Buffs” who’s present membership comes from across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Although our membership comes from many different walks of life, we have one common interest, the fire service.

For any Club or Association to continually evolve, they need constant Participation and Feed-Back from all their Members. Please help Us to Improve this Website
