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.

Dallas 2020 FD Kick Off

Memorial Tee Shirt to honor Blake Wilson
My name is Matthew Wilson and I am a firefighter/paramedic with DFD. As many in the department know, I tragically and unexpectedly lost my 2.5 year old son, Blake, last October. Because we are coming up on the 1 year anniversary of his passing, many have helped design a shirt and logo that would honor my son, and DFD. A tee shirt campaign has been created and we would very much appreciate you sharing this link-to-purchase with the retirees. We want nothing more than to have people say his name, and remember our son…but we also remember the love, support, and emotion that DFD provided us with during that terrible time. It was so appreciated.
Thank you again for considering spreading the word on our campaign.
