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.
Last Alarm Bell is temporarily going out of service.
Due to the renewed spread of the Covid virus, the Last Alarm Bell will be out of service beginning tomorrow, August 13, 2021.
This decision was reached after talking to the DFD chaplains about the risks to our members and the families that we serve.
The Last Alarm Bell Ceremony that was scheduled for October 9, 2021 has now been postponed until a later time.
DRFFA 2021 Dues are now being accepted
Dues for the Calendar year 2021 are now due.
Our treasurer, Dale Ellis has asked to send out a reminder that 2021 dues of $60.00 (That’s still only $5. per month) are now being accepted and remind everyone of our address:
…..PO Box 327
…..Maypearl, Tx. 76064
Also, duplicate payments will be returned if you are unsure if you pay monthly or not. If you paid yearly by check before, you will still need to do so. Before making a payment you can call, text or email Dale to make sure.
We do not send out statements but rely on our email notifications.
Just a reminder, surviving spouses are lifetime members and are not required to pay dues. Be sure and keep us up to date on your contact information and email address.
Members that would still like to skip the hassle of sending in a check every year and have the fee deducted by payroll deduction are advised to go online and download the form or call the pension office and have them send you one. After filling out the form, mail it directly to the Pension office. Members that do so are advised to make sure and check off each organization that you donate to including the Burial Fund and the Museum. The Pension Fund website is DPFP.org
