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.
A ribbon cutting ceremony for replacement Fire Station 32, located at 4262 N. Jim Miller Road, is scheduled for Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. All members of the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department, City of Dallas Officials, as well as the public are invited to attend.
New Fire Station 32 was constructed with a $4,000,000 budget from funds approved in the 2006 Bond Program. Station 32 is a 12,604 square foot facility on a 1.24 acre site with all the latest amenities and state of the art equipment to assist with energy savings such as a Geo-thermal unit to heat and cool the station. This is a four (4) bay facility, which will house an Engine and Rescue, but can accommodate up to twelve (12) firefighters and four (4) apparatus. Additionally, this facility is equipped with bi-fold doors for all apparatus bays, which could lower maintenance cost over the life of the facility.
Please come and join us for the ribbon cutting ceremony as we continue to move forward updating our facilities.
Item Posted 09-12-14 Assistance Opportunities for Family of David Leos:
David Leos, a 33-year veteran Dallas firefighter, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on August 7, 2014. Doctors at Medical City Dallas say David will be spending the majority of the next year in the hospital, requiring multiple rounds of chemo and possibly a stem cell transplant. David’s wife, Carol, and three young daughters live in Lindale, Texas (over 90 miles from the hospital). The family is facing not only mounting medical bills, but also transportation and lodging costs. They must completely redo major portions of their home to ensure David’s immune system is not compromised in the upcoming year. We have TWO opportunities to lend a hand to the Leos family, to support a brother who has dedicated his life to helping others.
We have another great opportunity to help as well. The Dallas HFFA has developed a Go Fund Me internet based assistance tool on behalf of David and it is up and running. We ask that you consider making a contribution in whatever capacity you can. These are the times we have a chance to step up and come together to directly take care of of a fellow afflicted with a serious medical condition. The fight against Leukemia is all too personal for me and my family, and I can tell you firsthand, these support systems make a world of difference. Giving is easy and just takes a few clicks. Please click on the link below to assist David during these trying times.
