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 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.
