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 the Second Driver Lawsuit:
The 16-plaintiff test case (Arredondo v. City of Dallas) is set for a jury trial to start on Monday, August 15, 2016.
As a previous posting explained, in February 2015, the Supreme Court of Texas issued an order refusing to hear the City of Dallas’s latest appeal. The Supreme Court of Texas then, in August 2015, overruled the City’s motion to reconsider that decision. The next month, the appellate courts returned the cases to the Collin County District Court for further proceedings.
Attorneys for the plaintiffs and the City appeared in Collin County District Court on January 20, 2016, to discuss scheduling further trial court activities. After hearing the City lawyers’ attempts to delay trial to the end of the year, the District Judge ordered that a jury trial will begin on Monday, August 15, 2016. The City’s lawyers assured the Court that the City will be ready for trial on that date, but also told the Court that the City will file unidentified motions in the coming months that, we presume, the City hopes will either delay trial or resolve the case in the City’s favor. The legal team, of course, will continue to prepare for trial and will respond to any efforts by the City to avoid trial.
