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.

(Item Posted 07-01-14) Tuesday, July 8, 2014 Retirees Luncheon at Furrs’s Cafeteria in Garland:
I have heard that Furr’s declared bankruptcy. That is true. It is also true another company has stepped in and bought the Furr’s company and the cafeterias will continue to operate as usual for the time being. So plan on showing up next Tuesday at the Garland Furr’s and enjoy lunch with the other DFD retirees that will be there.

(Item Posted 07-01-14) I have not heard anything about a new meeting place for the East Texas Retirees Luncheon that has been held on the second Tuesday of even numbered months. If anyone knows anything about the plans for this luncheon, please let me know at drffa.sec@charter.net .
