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.

4/26/17 DRFFA Save Our Pension Campaign – Appeal For More Money:
The Pension Bill (HB3158) fight continues at home and in Austin. Your DRFFA Board continues to believe that passage of this bill without unfriendly amendments is our best bet for saving the Pension. There is still a long fight ahead. We must get it passed on the House Floor and then through the Senate which may be an even tougher fight according to our lobbyist. We are also faced with a severe Public Relations problem. Regrettably the Mayor has chosen to portray us as thieves and brigands. Together with other employee groups we are attempting to engage the services of a professional Public Relations firm to counter our negative image the Mayor has successfully implanted in minds of Dallas citizenry. These efforts will be expensive so today the Board of the DRFFA decided to make another appeal to our membership for additional donations to our “Pension Rescue Fund.” A suggested amount for this round is again $100.00. If you cannot afford that amount, any amount you are able to contribute will be appreciated.
Checks should be made payable to “DRFFA” with note in memo field “Pension Rescue”, and mailed to:
DRFFA
P.O. Box 831666
Richardson, TX 75083-1666

You have been generous in your support up to this point. To date we have spent money on lobbying, t-shirts, expenses associated with having one of our own representing us in Austin, a buy-in to the legal actions initiated by the DPROA. If you want more detailed information about our spending thus far, please feel free to contact me at dwhebh@gmail.com or (972) 742-5443.
