The London Professional Fire Fighters Association proudly support members volunteering with GlobalFire & GlobalMedic. Volunteering off duty hours, members deploy worldwide to answer the call for help with missions in disaster relief, capacity building and emergency response training. 

GlobalFire was created, and is organized and equipped to undertake the following tasks:

  1.  Perform technical searches and conduct technical rescues in post natural or man-made disaster environments worldwide.
  2.  Collect and donate fire suppression equipment and train local first responders or an organized group of volunteers in fire fighting and first aid in developing nations.
  3.  Inspect locations and install simple fire fighting systems in population dense areas that lack basic fire protection (such as camps that house refugees and internally displaced persons) and train local volunteers on the use of these systems.

GlobalFire is a NGO (non-governmental organization) based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  We strive to help people in need around the world by offering emergency assistance to victims of disasters and by donating equipment to, and providing training for, fire and medical services personnel in developing and war-torn countries; but we can only do so with your help. Becoming a member of GlobalFire gives you the opportunity to help those affected by disaster to help themselves. 

Anyone can join GlobalFire

GlobalFire is a zero overhead organization. Our Rapid Response Team (RRT) members take personal vacation time when they need to deploy.  During their spare time between missions, they assist volunteers in packing donated supplies and they conduct fundraising events. 

Volunteers can have a variety of duties, from being part of a disaster response team that is deployed around the world, to organizing fundraising events here in Canada, to helping pack for upcoming programs. Every individual is as involved as they would like to be.  All that we ask, is that you have a positive attitude and a strong will to help those less fortunate.

GlobalFire is always in need of volunteers for support and fundraising.   Join Now!
