The London Fire Fighters Pipe Band was originally formed in 1921 as the St. Thomas Legion Branch 41 Pipe Band. Since then, the band has performed and competed under several names, including the Chrysler Highlanders, MacNish Distillery Pipe Band, and St. Thomas Police Pipe Band. Since 2003 the band has been sponsored by the London Professional Fire Fighters Association.
We welcome pipers and drummers of all experience levels to join us. Our organization is currently comprised of two competitive bands - one each in Grade IV, and Grade V. We also welcome non-competitive players, and as a group we perform in many parades, ceremonies, and other special events throughout the year.
The band is a not-for-profit corporation.
The London Fire Fighters Pipe Band is proud to be sponsored by the London Professional Fire Fighters Association (LPFFA), the bargaining unit for employees of the London Fire Department. The LPFFA was established in 1918 as Local 142 of the International Association of Fire Fighters, and represents approximately 400 full-time fire fighters and officers, communications operators, fire inspectors, support staff, and administrative personnel. The band is not affiliated with, or supported by, the London Fire Department or the Corporation of the City of London.
