SPAAMFAA, The Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Motor Fire Apparatus in America began in Syracuse in 1958, the brain child of Dick Horstmann. The Society's mission is to, as the name suggests, to preserve the history of fire apparatus. The Society has over 3,000 members in the United States, Canada and other countries. 

​​The CNY Chapter is mourning the loss of two founding members of the Society, Dave Sinclair and Tom Laun . Both men were members of the Syracuse Fire Department and served with distinction.

Many SPAAMFAA members will recall the two as they shared experiences on the job and early days of SPAAMFAA.

May they rest in peace.
