The Long Beach Firefighters
The Long Beach Firefighters Memorial Association was founded in 1954 with the goal to promote and support fellowship amongst Long Beach Firefighters and their families. It has been a long-standing tradition of the organization to provide opportunities for families to come together at various events throughout the year. From the old traditions of the Fourth of July Fireworks Show, to the future traditions of Pizza Night and the Luau; the intention is offering an environment that encourages our Firefighters and their families to share more than a work schedule. In addition, the Long Beach Firefighters Memorial Association works to make a lasting impact on the community by fundraising and supporting other Long Beach nonprofits. The association raises those funds through events like the annual Golf Tournament and Car Show. It has always been important that we support organizations like the Long Beach Fire Museum and Long Beach Search and Rescue Explorer Post; as they have provided opportunities for future and past firefighters to stay involved with the city and the department.
The Memorial Association would like to thank all the families and friends that came out to our Inaugural Luau at Marine Stadium. We enjoyed great food, music, and water sports!
Our organization strives to put together events that provide an opportunity for our “Fire Families” to get together. Upcoming, we have our Annual Golf Tournament coming up on September 16th, 2019 at Virginia Country Club. Please contact Jimmy Smith with any questions or if you know anyone willing to donate.
Our next event on the books will be the Firefighters Picnic at the POA Park on Sunday, September 22, 2019, and we are looking forward to seeing all of you!
The LBFFMA would like to extend a great deal of gratitude to Tim Isaacson, Jimmy Smith, Billy Hubbard, Brad Robideaux, Michael Morrison, Richard Storey and AJ Jackson for your continued support, as you sacrifice time with your families to help make this organization successful! Hope to see all of you there at the next event!
