1918 The International Association of Fire Fighters is Founded. Thirty-six delegates selected from 24 locals gathered to attend the first IAFF convention on February 28, 1918 in Washington, DC. They met at the American Federation of Labor building at 10:00 a.m. to adopt a Constitution and By-Laws for the new union, created for the sole benefit of rank-and-file fire fighters in the United States and Canada . They elected Thomas G. Spellacy of Schenectady, New York the first president and William Smith as the first Secretary-Treasurer, neither of whom stayed on past 1920. The delegates debated on a name for the new organization, deciding between the International Brotherhood of Fire Fighters, the International Union of Fire Fighters, and the International Association of Fire Fighters. They also proposed publishing a magazine for their members, decided the salary of officers, and approved a motion to create a Fire Fighters Fund, to benefit orphaned children of fire fighters. #IAFFhistory

TBT This is one of the original Norwich Township Fire Stations. This building is located at 5321 Norwich Street in Hilliard. According to the Franklin County Auditor's website this building was built in 1940. This station was in operation until 1981 when it was vacated by the Fire Department. In 1981 this station and the old Hilliard-Rome Rd station were combined and moved to the (original) fire station located on the Franklin County Fairgrounds property. This building is still standing today! It has been owned by several businesses since it operated as a fire station servicing the community.
Don't forget to change your smoke detector batteries this weekend.
