About Us

The Tacoma Fire Buff Battalion is a 501(C)(3) non-profit service organization. We are staffed around the clock by a loyal corps of dedicated citizen volunteers. Under the official recognition and direction of the Tacoma Fire Department, we provide rehabilitation support services to Tacoma firefighters at firefighting and other emergency operations, and at training exercises.

The Tacoma Fire Buff Battalion provides these services as part of a mutual partnership and collaboration with the City of Tacoma, the Tacoma Fire Department, and the Tacoma Professional Firefighters Local #31. We are a member of the International Fire Buffs Associates(IFBA), an organization of local fire buff clubs in many cities through out the United States and Canada.
