Your Irving Fire Fighters were recognized by the Muscular Dystrophy Association at the "2022 Louis E. Hebert and Tom Riddle Leadership Seminar" hosted by the Texas State Association of Fire Fighters and the Professional Fire Fighters of Oklahoma. The IPFFA finished 2021 as one of the top fundraisers in the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) 11th District. Thank you to everyone that donated and helped make our annual “Fill the Boot” fundraiser a success. We could not have done it without the support of our citizens!
Since 1954, fire fighters across the country have collected critical funds in the community – one dollar at a time – as part of the Fill the Boot program to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). The partnership between MDA and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) began when the IAFF signed a proclamation designating MDA as its charity of choice, vowing to continue raising awareness and funds to ensure effective treatments and therapies are found. The dollars raised through Fill the Boot fund MDA’s mission of empowering people living with neuromuscular disease to achieve their potential.
