RIAFC urges fire service support of the 100 Club of RI


The 100 Club members have a special feeling of gratitude for police officers and firefighters.

Membership eligibility for the 100 Club of Rhode Island is determined by a Board of Directors chosen by and from 100 Club voting members. New members must be sponsored by a minimum of two current 100 Club members in good standing. Membership is open to individuals who share the beliefs and objectives of The 100 Club of Rhode Island.

Membership categories include Active or Retired Police or Fire at $50 per year, Individual at $100 per year, and Lifetime at a one-time cost of $1000. All dues are tax deductible. To preclude any conflict of interest, only Individual and Lifetime members can vote, serve on our various committees, or serve as an Officer or member of the Board of Directors. A general membership meeting is held once a year.

The 100 Club of Rhode Island was founded as an entirely civilian organization in 1972. However, in response to many inquiries from actively serving public safety officials who appreciate our services to their families, active full-time law enforcement officers, firefighters, and rescue personnel became eligible for non-voting membership in June of 2014.

If you are interested in joining the 100 Club of Rhode Island, please print out and complete the membership application or call/email Lorraine C. Slaney at (401) 421-2500.

RIAFC Installation of Officers

The Rhode Island Association of Fire Chiefs and the RIAFC Foundation held their annual installation of officers banquet recently at the Haversham House in Westerly.

Each board was installed by Chief Fred Stanley who was also honored for reaching the amazing milestone of 50 years as a fire chief. Chief Stanley was named the first and only president emeritus of the RIAFC and presented with his own personalized gavel set and a plaque recognizing his honorary position.

Also recognized at the event was Chief Donald Ardito, retired, as he retires his position as the long time treasurer of the RIAFC. He served 28 years in that position.
