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.

DRFFA 2020 Dues are now being accepted
Dues for the Calendar year 2020 are now due.
Our treasurer, Dale Ellis has asked to send out a reminder that 2020 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 not required to pay dues. Be sure and keep us up to date on your contact information and email address.
As has been reported, a number of our members signed up for payroll deduction last year and when Dale took their forms to the pension fund they refused the forms for two reasons:
1. Dale had highlighted the forms to show people what to fill out. The pension fund refused them because the form had been altered.
2. The Pension fund also refused them because they were sent through a second party. They will only accept these forms if they are sent from each member directly to the pension office.
These forms were shredded by the Pension Office.
Members that would still like to convert over to 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 pocket shift calendars and DRFFA automobile decals may be ordered from Pat Warnock. Please send an email to Pat Warnock stating how many calendars you need and include your name and mailing address. Pat’s email is email@example.com
