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.
Annual Meeting – Otis “Buck” Banks Burial Fund
The annual meeting of the Otis “Buck” Banks Burial Fund (OBBF) has been scheduled for Friday, October 29, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. The meeting will take place at the Dallas Firefighters Association, 10956 Audelia Road, Dallas, TX.
The Board of Trustees will be accepting nominations for three positions on the board that will expire December 31, 2021. Active and retired uniform members in the OBBF for a minimum of six months, and in good standing, are eligible for nomination. Trustees serve three year alternating terms. Selection as a trustee entails bi-annually meeting to discuss administrative issues governing the burial fund and interacting with the membership.
The Board of Trustees would like to thank the membership for your consideration and contributions this past year. For additional information on membership or Board of Trustee responsibilities, please contact President Mike McLemore (18C) or Treasurer Elaine Maddox at (469) 323-5891.

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
