IAFF Celebrates 95th Anniversary

February 28, 2013 – The IAFF is celebrating 95 years of uniting fire fighters and paramedics to protect and enhance wages, benefits and working conditions, while providing better services to their communities. For nearly a century, the IAFF has been a leader in advancements that have changed the fire service and the lives of its members. From the coats on their back to the hours worked, this union has always been on the frontline.

The IAFF was formed in 1918 at a time when fire fighters worked seven days a week, had few benefits and safety meant putting a wet towel over their face before running into flames. By uniting fire fighters, this union became the voice of fire fighters and paramedics across the United States and Canada.  Read more.
