    FOR FIREFIGHTERS, BY FIREFIGHTERS.

    The IAFF is the driving force behind nearly every advance in the fire and emergency services in the 21st century—from the introduction of shift schedules early in the last century to the enactment of SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response).  With extremely active political and legislative programs, and with recognized experts in the fields of occupational health and safety, fire-based emergency medical services and hazardous materials training, the IAFF has established professional standards for the North American fire service.

    Today, the IAFF is the primary advocate for firefighters.  The IAFF provides a strong voice in the development and implementation of new training and equipment, and has worked hard to ensure the proper staffing of fire and EMS departments.

    The IAFF is a member driven organization…FOR FIREFIGHTERS, BY FIREFIGHTERS.

    The only way we can overcome the challenges that firefighters face today is to stand united.  Without commitment and active participation from our Jefferson County Firefighters, we already have and will continue to lose the benefits that have been granted to our profession. 

    We must protect what we have and work together to secure and build the future.  This cannot be accomplished without the continued effort and perseverance of our IAFF Local 3972 Members.  As a truly member-driven organization, FOR FIREFIGHTERS, BY FIREFIGHTERS, IAFF Local 3972 has grown from its 15 charter members in 1999 to the over 100 today.  But, our work is not done.  In spite of the work and dedication of many positive Fire Service Leaders in Jefferson County, there is still much to be done.  Misapplication and violation of department plicies, inappropriate disciplinary practices, inconsistent salaries, disparate health benefits, challenging working conditions, training issues, and excessive threats of Chapter 75 hearings through intimdation tactics are just some of the challenges we must overcome.

    JOIN TODAY TO PROTECT AND SERVE THOSE WHO PROTECT US.

    BECAUSE IN UNION, THERE IS STRENGTH!
