This is the website of a firebuff who lives in Montreal, Canada. My interest  in the fire service is of course very different from my daytime job. I am an accountant and management consultant. My friends and colleagues don't understand what firebuffing is and that I share this hobby with many others.

See what the Montreal Gazette had to say about this firebuff on January 18, 2002 by clicking Gazette Article


The goal of this website is to provide information to fellow firebuff's (and my friends and colleagues) and to share the knowledge and resources that are afforded by the World Wide Web.

This site is updated regularly. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. Please e-mail me with your suggestions, links and other materials at mdbindman@gmail.com
