airdrie Fire Department Ceremonial Society
Airdrie Fire Department Ceremonial Society
The AFDCS is a voluntary organization created in 2013, comprised of members of the department who wish to represent the Local, Department and the City of Airdrie. We have established a "Ceremonial Society" as we hope to add a Pipe & Drum Band in the future. Currently, 14 members from the suppression division make up the Honour Guard. We also have a piper in training from the administration division. Our executive includes a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Our VP takes on the role of Drill Instructor, with other members of the executive filling in if needed. The AFDCS holds monthly practices, adding extra practices as required for preparation of special events. The AFDCS operates with the full support of IAFF Local 4778 as well as the City of Airdrie Fire Department Administration.
