Our Association is involved in supporting many activities including the following:
Training - The D.C.F.A. has been in the forefront in bringing quality and state of the art training to the Fire Fighters of Delaware County. We have been involved in the creation and support of the Delaware County Fire and Emergency Services Training Center. We have donated approximately $300,000.00 to cover some of the major acquisitions such as The construction of the Burn Building and Drill Tower; purchase of the Flash Over Simulator; and construction of the George T. Lewis Library; and a state of the art satellite communications system.
Law and Legislation - The D.C.F.A. is very active within the County of Delaware and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania providing guidance and oversight to make sure emergency services is represented in Harrisburg. We send representatives to the Pennsylvania Fire and Emergency Services Institute, the Fireman's Association of the State of Pennsylvania, and the Law and Legislative Federation of Pennsylvania. These delegates report back at our meeting to keep you our members informed of legislation and its impact on you.
Awards - At our annual Dinner we sponsor the Fire Fighter of the Year for the Outstanding Fire Fighter in Delaware County, the Andrew Hogan Memorial Fire Safety Award for the Outstanding Fire Company or Person performing Fire Safety. We also offer the Valor Award, Civilian Humanitarian Award and new this year the Fire Dispatcher of the Year award.
