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.

Opening Ceremony for Fire Station 59
An opening ceremony for Fire Station 59, situated at 201 N. Jim Miller Road, is scheduled for Thursday, August 18, 2022 at 10 a.m. Fire Station 59 opened for emergency response operations on Friday, July 8, 2022, during the afternoon hours as firefighters assigned to 34’s moved equipment and belongings throughout the day. Because of the relocation of specialty
trained staff and response equipment, Fire Station 59 will now be home to DFR’s swift water team Fire Station 34 will no longer be a base of operations for swift water response.
In addition to swift water rescue equipment, Fire Station 59 will house Truck 59, Engine 59, and Rescue 59. Because of these moves, Station 34 will house Engine 34 and Rescue 34.
This newest addition to our inventory of fire stations was constructed from funds approved in the 2017 Bond Program. Fire Station 59 is a 13,756 square foot facility on 1 acre of property with modern design features including a transition zone for firefighter and bunker gear decontamination, energy efficient lighting and controls, and featuring roof access for rescue training. These are but a few of the innovative design features of the fire station.
Please join us for the opening ceremony on August 18th as we celebrate a station that will help DFR improve its emergency response in the areas served.
