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.

We set a record last Saturday with 39 in attendance at the breakfast.
What a wonderful time with friends and some that I had not seen in over thirty years. The next breakfast is June 7 at eight A.M. If some of the regulars had been there we would have taken over the entire room. Join us in June for another wonderful time of laughter and old memories. Ray and Chip
