Are you retired from the fire service and wish to meet like-minded others? Perhaps you’re a spouse, partner or dependant of someone in the service? Or are you passionate about organising and taking part in fundraising, whether it’s Car Washes, recycling or running? Whatever it may be, My Fire Fighters Charity (MyFFC) will have a group for you to join!
Working in much the same way as Facebook Groups, MyFFC offers you the chance to join any of 20+ groups, covering a vast range of topic areas. Once joined, you can meet others who share your interests, kick off conversations, share ideas, post content and have fun.
There are a broad selection of groups to choose from, all designed to bring people together from across the UK. The first step is to register for MyFFC and then you can explore all of them and join in the discussion.
Below is a brief overview of just a few of the groups on offer to all who register, and you can watch our video explainer here to get you started:
