Welcome to the Dallas Retired Firefighters Association Website.  The DRFFA is made up of Dallas Firefighters who have retired from the Dallas Fire Rescue Department.  This website was created to keep our members informed and to help foster a sense of community.

Retirees are active in the community and serve as a great resource for our on duty members.  Retirees help with recruit training, serve on the pension board, serve as critical incident stress volunteers and many other functions.  There are groups of retirees who travel together and meet regularly for information and fellowship.   Welcome to our website.

Item Posted 02-10-15 — Make-up Photography Sessions for 2015 DFR Yearbook:
The 2015 Yearbook make-up photography sessions have been scheduled to permit members and retirees another opportunity to be a part of this special and historical project. The yearbook committee is working diligently to ensure a quality finished product. During the recent photography sessions, members expressed an interest in purchasing their photographs.

The sessions were streamlined since the photographer was not fielding requests for individual pictures. However, after the make-up sessions are concluded, the photographer will catalogue and organize photos prior to posting on a website that will permit members/retirees to order their photos. More details regarding ordering of these photos will be made available in the near future.

The Yearbook Committee also encourages members/retirees to submit their action or scene pictures for potential inclusion in the yearbook. A special e-mail account has been set up for this purpose and photos may be e-mailed to dfdphotos@gmail.com. Alternatively, members may submit photos copied onto DVDs or CDs to Hilda Navarro located at City Hall-Fire Dispatch, L1CS.

Members and retirees are strongly encouraged to participate in one of the remaining photo sessions if they have failed to do so:

Tues., Feb. 17, 2015 (B-shift) 1551 Baylor St. (Suite 200) 0800-1100
Sun., Feb. 22, 2015 (A-shift) 5000 Dolphin Rd. (Auditorium) 0800-1100
Tues., Feb. 24, 2015 (C-shift) 5000 Dolphin Rd. (Kitchen by gym in Building A) 0800-1100

Finally, all retirees are encouraged to pre-order their yearbooks. A DRFFA email was sent out dated 01-27-2015 titled On-Line Ordering of 2015 Yearbook: that explains the On-Line Ordering process. Please refer to that email to place an On-Line Order of the yearbook.

Item Posted 02-10-15 — Walk of Honor Work Day Planning:
It has been discussed that we have a mid-March work day to make several changes and repairs to the Walk of Honor. Tom Taylor will be coordinating and scheduling the work day. He has asked that we poll our retirees to see if there is anyone who has a masonry saw and the requisite skills for making the brick cuts required for the needed repairs and the new brick cuts that the Walk of Honor needs. Please contact Tom at (972) 394-6082 or his email anitatom2@verizon.net if you can be available with your masonry saw to help out.
