New NFPA 1710 Explainer Video

For years, affiliates have battled politicians who make decisions on how many fire fighters a community has, based on budget figures developed by number crunchers. In most cases, this flawed approach leaves the community short of the number of fire fighters needed to successfully protect the residents and businesses they serve.

In past decades, there were very few tools to make credible arguments in debates on this issue – beyond our own experience. But over the past few years, the IAFF has been leading the charge on scientific research to help community leaders better understand how to best protect the taxpaying public.

NFPA 1710 is the internationally accepted standard on minimum crew size and operational staffing for career fire departments. Telling the 1710 story is difficult, even to IAFF members but this video can be the key to start a discussion.

A new explainer video on the NFPA 1710 Standard – an essential tool for conveying the message that proper staffing levels are essential for keeping your community safe - promotes the science of fire fighting and educating policy makers through leaders and the media in your community.

Remembering the 343 FDNY Fire Fighters on 15th Anniversary of 9/11

Message from General President Harold Schaitberger:

“Fifteen years ago on September 11, 2001, on a beautiful and then horrific Tuesday morning on the south end of Manhattan, we were faced with a catastrophic moment in our country and our profession. 

“343 of the very bravest from FDNY made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our nation and on behalf of the citizens they were sworn to protect. And at the Pentagon, hundreds of members from locals in Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland battled the flames and risked their lives to pull people from the rubble.

“Our two incredible locals, the Uniformed Firefighters Association Local 94 and Uniformed Fire Officers Association Local 854, were faced with a disastrous moment, for which no playbook had been written.

“This union of ours, our members and leaders across two great countries came together in an incredible display of solidarity to begin taking care of the families of our fallen and those who were left behind.

“The details of our work, the resources, the financial assistance – more than $164 million for the 9/11 Disaster Relief Fund – and the support from our combined efforts are well chronicled. In the face of an unspeakable disaster, the pure solidarity displayed by everyone across this union is a moment that we should all be proud of.”

Winning and Improving Presumption Laws
The number of states without presumptive legislation for fire fighters who contract cancer continues to shrink. In April, Idaho became the 34th state to win presumptive protections. Read More...
Rates of PTSD in Fire Fighters
Rates of PTSD in firefighters may be heightened more so than in other professions. See, many people will experience a potentially traumatic event at some point in their life. But just because you have experienced a traumatic event does not mean that you will definitely go on to develop PTSD. Read More...
