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 08-02-14 — Tara Burmeister: Information Regarding a Further Tragedy in Her Family:
Tara Burmeistser, daughter of deceased retiree Dean Burmeister, called Elaine Maddox yesterday and informed her of a lightening strike that has destroyed all of Tara’s possessions and her home. No one was injured but she is now homeless and has only the clothes on her back.
Please keep Tara and her mother who was being cared for by Tara, in your thoughts and prayers. Several members have responded to the above email with offers of help for Tara and her family. Rather than my trying to be a go between, Tara has consented to allow me to include her phone number in this email so that all who want to assist can contact her directly. She says if she cannot answer immediately when someone calls, please leave a message and she will return the call at the earliest opportunity. She is most appreciative of the caring responses of DRFFA members.   Her telephone number is 214-707-1734.
To those members who sent me emails with assistance offers, please call Tara to make your offers directly to her. (DWB)
