The Falls View Hose Brigade
At the beginning of the 19th century the City of Niagara Falls was serviced by many volunteer fire departments. The Falls View Hose Brigade was one such volunteer department, officially established in 1905, incorporated in 1922.
The Brigade served the area of Falls View in its capacity as a fire brigade, until September of 1963 when the City of Niagara Falls took over responsibility for fire service to this area. Instead of disbanding, the Falls View Hose Brigade morphed itself into a volunteer service club, and to this day provides numerous services to the people of the Falls View area and the City of Niagara Falls.
The Falls View Hose Brigade celebrated its 100th year anniversary in 2005 by donating $100,000 to agencies such as the Boys and Girls Club, the McBain Centre, and youth soccer. Our annual fundraising programs like Heater's Heroes, help support many families in Niagara going through incredibly tough times.
Today the Club has a thriving membership from all walks of life, totally committed to servicing the community.
Small Scale Farms Fundraising Opportunity:
Each year, our Christmas Basket program, providing groceries and holiday meals for the needy families of Niagara Region, is the cornerstone of our annual fundraising efforts. To help offset the loss of our 2020 fundraising programs due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Falls View Hose Brigade has partnered up with Small Scale Farms.
For every Small produce bag purchased, Small Scale Farms will donate $5 to the Falls View Hose Brigade Christmas Basket program.
