Thank you for your interest in the Allen Firefighters Association. The Allen Firefighters Association has worked hard to achieve an open dialogue, and strives to maintain that dialogue with the administration of the department, the City of Allen, and members of the City Council. This dialogue helps to ensure the Allen Fire Department remains among the most professional and well trained and equipped in the state. Also through this dialogue, we hope that the City of Allen maintains its high standing as a desirable place to live and work.
The AFFA is a Local member of the International Association of Firefighters, and through that organization works to improve the fire profession throughout the country. 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.
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 Allen's citizens and visitors, the AFFA also actively supports many charities. As a non-profit association, the AFFA regularly provides assistance for organizations committed to aiding for others. Some examples are listed on the Charities page on this site. The AFFA also provides for employees 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 AFFA is funded through membership dues and donations from local citizens and businesses. If you wish to make a donation to AFFA, please feel free to visit the supporters tab above. We also welcome your questions and comments.
