Most people ask why join the union?
The answer is simple, without your participation there would be no one to lobby for good firefighter legislation. Without your membership, there would be no funding to study new safety devices that could save your life someday.
Joining the local lets you be a member of the most progressive firefighter organization in the United States. As a member, you can take an active role in the local. The local lets you develop your skills and talents while promoting our profession.
With membership, you can access the vast resources of the IAFF or ask questions about personnel issues or other problems. Your union officials know how much about the department and can offer an unbiased opinion that does not reflect a managerial position on the issues concerning your employment, benefits, or pay. Make a statement about your profession of "always on the frontline."
