Strathcona County Firefighter Paramedics Spouse Association (SCFPSA) is made up of the spouses or significant others of Strathcona Count Firefighter Paramedics. It is SCFPSA’s goal to support our First Responders, their Families, and our connected community. We work towards this goal by developing efficient channels of communication, campaigning for and facilitating educational opportunities, and by developing better understanding of what benefits and rights already exist for our members, spouses, and their families.
Knowing our department is made stronger through strong connections, we seek to support one another as friends and strengthen the relationships within our fire family. Some ways in which we do this include supporting SCFP Members and their Spouses in their business efforts through our Business Directory page; connecting through meetings and family social events; partnering with or assisting our Members’ Union to host celebrations, fundraisers, and public awareness campaigns; and communicating through our email list, confidential SCFPSA outreach program, or on our private Facebook Group.
How to Join
All married and common law spouses of Strathcona County Firefighter Paramedics are welcome to join the SCFP Spouse Association, including the spouses of new recruits yet to start and the spouses of former or retired Strathcona County Firefighter Paramedics. We appreciate the wealth of wisdom that comes from lived experience and are grateful for the support of those who have come before us.
Our association is privately run (i.e., unaffiliated with Strathcona County) and fairly informal. If you are the married or common law spouse of an Strathcona County Firefighter (new recruit, current, former, or retired), just sign up for our email list to stay in the loop of what’s going on or contact us if you’d like to volunteer your time or skills. You can also join our private Facebook Group.
The SCFPSA Facebook Group is set to “closed,” which means it can be found in a search engine but nonmembers can’t see its membership body or read our discussions*. SCFP Spouses can request to be added to the group.
*It should be noted that Member privacy is paramount. While there are available avenues for those seeking assistance on private matters, the intimate details of individual SCFP Members should not be shared in public settings – this includes in meetings and on our Facebook group.
We’d love for you to attend our association meetings or events when possible but it’s not a requirement of membership. Membership in this association should never feel like an obligation and if the more social aspects of it aren’t for you, you are free to simply make use of the website or email list as needed. In whatever capacity you want to use this association, we are here for all SCFP Families.
