The Massachusetts Antique Fire Apparatus Association Inc. was founded as a local group in early 1977, a local chapter of the Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motorized Fire Apparatus in American (SPAAMFAA) located in Syracuse, New York.
The purpose of this the organization is to promote and preserve antique motorized fire apparatus. HOWEVER, YOU DO NOT NEED TO OWN APPARATUS TO BELONG! We welcome anyone with an interest in the history of the fire service! Currently, we have approximately 150 members. It is open to all upon application to the Board of Directors. Annual Dues are $15 for an active member, family memberships ($15 for the first member and $5 for each additional member), $50 for an Affiliate (fire department, museum or groups) and $300 for life membership.
A general monthly meeting is held the first Sunday of every month (excluding summer months) at a different location throughout the eastern part of the state.
An Annual Fire Apparatus Parade, show and flea market is held the second Saturday in June. We publish a bi-monthly newsletter (The Box Alarm) with a calender of events, for sale section, wanted page plus articles & photos relating to antique fire apparatus (parts of this description reprinted from the original MAFAA website, courtesy of Ray Pitts)
