ABOUT THE TOOLKIT
This toolkit was designed to assist District Vice Presidents and their Field Service Representatives as they actively work to grow our union. The resources provided are meant to be readily available to assist you in those efforts.
WHY WE FIGHT
From your first day on the job and every day thereafter, the IAFF is fighting for you and your rights as professional fire fighters and paramedics. For more than 100 years, the IAFF has unified fire fighters and paramedics in the shared mission to protect and enhance wages, benefits and working conditions while providing better services to the communities they protect. Over the decades, the IAFF has been a leader in advancements that have changed the fire service and the lives of our members – from the coats on their backs to the hours they work, the IAFF has always been on the frontline.
The IAFF is dedicated to improving the lives and careers of our EMS members. With more than 320,000 members across the United States and Canada, the IAFF supports EMS providers in part by participating in payment reform and advocating for EMS legislation at the federal, state, provincial, and local levels.
