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.
Special Meeting Called for by the Pension Board.
The Board of Trustees has called for a Special Meeting of the Board on Monday, 9/26 at 2pm to consider possible changes to DROP policies. The staff is recommending to the Board that no change be made which would limit or restrict withdrawals from Retiree’s DROP accounts. Please continue to monitor dpfp.org for the most current information.
Important Update 8-13-16 Trial Delay Message From Tom Caton Regarding the Arredondo Case:
A jury trial in the 16-firefighter Arredondo case was scheduled to begin on Monday, August 15, 2016. On Thursday, April 11, 2016, the trial judge met with lawyers for the firefighters and City and determined that a postponement of the trial was warranted. The court and parties had been unable to meet before Thursday to work through a number of significant pre-trial issues, which was going to slow the trial and waste jurors’ time. The court informed the parties to plan for trial in Arredondo before the close of 2016.
