The Sugar Land Citizen’s Fire Academy Alumni Association (CFAAA) has teamed up with the Sugar Land Fire Department (SLFD) firefighters to bring the community a glossy, 13 month, action-packed 2016 calendar, and it is sure to please! The featured firefighters have worked hard to bring their best.

The Sugar Land CFAAA is a 501(c)(3) organization that works independently of the City of Sugar Land and the SLFD. They are dedicated to supporting our local firefighters and their families.

Proceeds from the sale of the 2016 calendar benefit two CFAAA sponsored programs. The Scholarship Fund was founded to financially assist firefighters’ children in pursuing their educational and vocational studies. The Hearts and Hoses Program supports and recognizes the true spirit within the SLFD to lend a helping hand by providing financial assistance to firefighters and their families when in need.

For a second year, the CFAAA was honored to present 2015 scholarship awards to seven outstanding college-bound students who are children of Sugar Land firefighters. This was three times the amount presented in 2014. With fire department leadership, firefighters, family members and CFAAA members in attendance, the students were honored for their accomplishments. The goal is to grow this program throughout the year and present much more for 2016!
