The TFWA is comprised of wives and significant others of Troy firefighters, as well as other women who have a special interest in this activity. In addition to providing support to firefighters at incidents in the form of refreshments, they work to provide “care kits” to families who have suffered a fire and cannot stay in their home. These kits provide basic essentials on a temporary basis as well as pre-arranged overnight stays with local hotels. Their work is self-funded through various fund raisers held throughout the year.
The TFWA has been instrumental in the creation of the Firefighters Memorial Tree Planting at Firefighters Park in honor of our past firefighters.
