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.

August 14, 2017 Message From DRFFA Board Regarding The DPROA Federal Lawsuit:
The DRFFA Executive Board met on August 11, 2017. The focus of our meeting was to continue the discussion regarding our participation in supporting the Lawsuit filed in Federal Court by several DPD plaintiffs (now joined by fire fighter Steve McBride). This lawsuit demands the release of DROP accounts to the named owners. Currently the DPROA (Dallas Police Retired Officer Association) has provided most of the funding for this suit. We, the DRFFA, have invested $10,000 in support of the lawsuit.
The lawsuit is a fact of life – nothing we do can or will stop it. We know a faction of our membership did not participate in DROP and believe a ruling in favor of the plaintiffs will severely damage the pension. Others who have participated in DROP feel strongly that the money in their DROP account is theirs.
The position we have adopted is that we will support the lawsuit to the extent that our members will provide money specifically earmarked for the lawsuit. We will not use your regular monthly dues for this effort. Thus far the response to our request for lawsuit funds has been lukewarm. We are making one further appeal for donations. We have suggested $500-$1000, but any amount will help. We will be guided by your response.
Mail checks to:
DRFFA
P.O. Box 831666

Make check payable to DRFFA, note “Lawsuit Fund” in memo field.
