FSWO Announces New Ways to Become a Member

FSWO expands our membership categories to better reflect our community and our goals.

Greetings to our members and supporters,

FSWO is happy to announce that we have redesigned our membership categories to better reflect our diverse membership. As a member-driven organization, our members are the foundation of everything we do. As FSWO grows within Ontario, Canada and the world, we want FSWO to be an organization where all fire service members and supporters who support our mandate and vision are welcome.

The changes to our membership categories and fees described below are rooted in our commitment to

1) Better represent the concerns of the FSWO membership
2) Deepen FSWO’s relationship with its members
3) Better fund FSWO in accordance with the services we provide
