Thank you for your interest in the Irving Professional Fire Fighters Association.
The IPFFA is proud to be the collective voice for the members of the Irving Fire Department. We are the advocate for providing the highest level of fire protection, rescue and EMS services to the City of Irving while ensuring that adequate working conditions are maintained for our members. We are actively engaged in providing the relevant information and data to leaders locally, statewide and at the federal level so that they can make the best decisions possible for their constituents and fire fighters.
The IPFFA is a Local member of the International Association of Fire Fighters, and the Texas State Association of Fire Fighters. Through these affiliations, we are working across the state and the nation to improve the fire profession. The IAFF is the leading advocate for firefighter safety and citizen protection in the United States. The IAFF is on the frontlines helping to introduce safety initiatives through building codes and legislation in Washington D.C. and Austin.
The Irving Professional Fire Fighters Association has worked hard to achieve and maintain an open dialogue with key decision makers including City of Irving staff and members of the City Council. This communication helps to ensure the Irving Fire Department remains among the most professional, well trained and equipped in the state. We are also committed to helping the City of Irving maintains its high standing as a desirable place to live, work and play.
In addition to being an advocate for public safety employees, attempting to improve the fire service as a whole and working to maintain a high level of service for Irving's citizens, businesses and visitors, the IPFFA also actively supports many charities. As a non-profit association, the IPFFA regularly provides assistance for organizations committed to providing aid to others. The IPFFA also provides assistance for members in need through our Benevolence Program, which offers financial aid to members who have endured a life changing event, a serious illness or injury, or a tragic occurrence.
The IPFFA is funded through membership dues paid by members of the Irving Fire Department, both active and retired. We also accept donations from local citizens and businesses to assist in our charitable efforts. If you wish to make a donation to IPFFA, please feel free to visit the supporters tab above. We also welcome your questions and comments.
