|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||A not-for-profit registered charity. While not being associated with the Fort Erie Fire Department, four of the eight operating vehicles the association owns were in service at one time in the Town of Fort Erie.
The association has acquired and restored numerous antique firefighting apparatus dating back to the 1840s. The Fort Erie LaFrance Association Museum was opened in 1986 to preserve and display these historical apparatus.
The Association seeks contributions from interested individuals and corporations in order to maintain these working vehicles and help promote the aim of fire prevention. Tax receipts are available with each donation.
