The Bedford Firefighters Association is a nonprofit organization made of the members of the Bedford Fire Department. The purpose of the association is to interact with the Bedford Fire Department with its responsibilities regarding the suppression of fire, the performance of rescue services and fire prevention programs. It is also to accept and raise funds for the purchase of equipment for the fire department and rescue services.
