The Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation recently awarded two $3000 CFFF/Motorola Foundation Education Bursaries and one $6000 CFFF Scholarship to the children of firefighters honoured by the CFFF. The presentations took place at locations across Canada.

 

At the annual Memorial dinner in Ottawa Bursaries were presented to the children of Tecumseh Firefighter Donald Massender who died in the line of duty in December 2009 and was honoured at the 2011 ceremony.
