2016 Community Cares Award Recipient: Richmond Firefighters' Society


Local heroes to the citizens of Richmond in many ways, the members of the Richmond Firefighters Association not only dedicate their lives to helping others, they have also undertaken a leadership role to improve local health care.

The Richmond Firefighters Association represents all of Richmond’s 215 firefighting, training, investigation, fire prevention, public education, and mechanical staff who work around the clock to keep the citizens of Richmond safe. In emergencies, they are often first to help on scene here in Richmond, and are extending their care and concern from the field to Richmond Hospital. Each member of the Richmond Firefighters Association has had a longstanding leadership role in Richmond by putting his or her own life on the line every day.

In addition to their contributions to safety in Richmond, members have generously chosen to give from their own financial resources to help improve local health care in Richmond. Their exemplary leadership, commitment, and personal donations serve as an inspiration to partners in the community, as well as residents who strongly believe in improving health care right here in the heart of our community.  


Thomas & Amy Fung

Pioneering, visionary and inspiring are some of the numerous attributes that characterize the outstanding qualities of Mr. Thomas Fung. As founder of Fairchild Group and as a real estate entrepreneur and businessman, Thomas is a formidable and admirable force in our city, our province and our country, sparking development and investment while encouraging community and health here at home.

Having chosen Richmond in 1989, Thomas launched Aberdeen Center which helped to contribute to the transformation of Richmond from a bedroom community into a vibrant and prosperous city. Today, while Richmond continues to have strong rural and community roots, the city is also distinguished worldwide as an international destination renowned for its high quality living, leisure and employment as well as a desirable location for raising a family.

With a long-term vision, Thomas has pursued his ideas and dreams with conviction and determination, demonstrating that anything and everything is possible. A passionate promoter through his company, Fairchild Group, Thomas has been a bridge for communities to build on the strengths that unite us and the values we hold in common.

Together with his wife, Amy, Thomas, is an enthusiastic supporter of health care philanthropy, lending the power of broadcast and promotion to Richmond Hospital Foundation to reach the Chinese community and inspire donors to give.
