Asian Firefighter Association 

Urgent Projects

The Asian Firefighter Association is an unofficial organization that was established to embrace cultural differences within the fire service and is open to ALL firefighters (future, present, and retirees).



Our Mission

Over 30 years ago the Chinese Firefighters Association was formed over a firehouse meal when Michael Mann (a non-Asian Firefighter) and the first Chinese-American Firefighter of Contra Costa County Doug Wong decided to get a bunch of firefighters together for a traditional Chinese New Year's dinner.

The tradition grew and the number of Chinese Firefighters in Contra Costa County has tripled in thirty years to three Chinese-American Firefighters.

The annual tradition of an annual Chinese New Year's dinner now includes over 100 members of the Fire Service Community, family, and friends.
