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.

Message From Tom Caton Regarding Update On Arredondo Case ( 2D Lawsuit):
The court had previously informed the attorneys that it had March 13, May 8, and May 15, 2017, available for trial to begin. The attorneys for both groups of plaintiffs in the Arredondo case informed the City of Dallas that they were available on any of the available dates. The City’s lawyers claimed that they were not available for March 13. Consequently, the trial court ordered that a jury trial in the Arredondo case will begin on May 8, 2017.
The Court also heard arguments on a motion for summary judgment filed by one group of plaintiffs, and a motion for reconsideration of a prior ruling filed by the City. The Court did not rule on either motion but, instead, informed the attorneys that rulings would be made in the future after the judge could review the motions carefully.
