McMinnville firefighters have recently rejoined the International Association of Firefighters, the nation’s largest organization representing emergency service professionals.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the organization represents more than 298,000 professional fire and emergency medical personnel who protect over 85 percent of American citizens. With the ultimate goal of providing enhanced protection for citizens, International Association of Firefighters members are provided with countless free educational opportunities that educate members in such areas as enhanced fire and rescue technique, fire prevention, occupational accident, and fatality reduction.
The IAFF also works closely with federal government officials in support of grants such as the SAFER grant. These are critical programs which provide federal aid to improve the readiness of our nation’s fire and emergency services at local levels.
The IAFF is the single largest contributor to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and last year firefighters collected $27.5 million for MDA. McMinnville Firefighters Association will be involved in collecting donations for MDA and other charities this year.
The United States Fire Administration ranks Tennessee within the top five states pertaining to fire deaths. McMinnville Firefighters Association is eager to become active in the community by aiding citizens with fire prevention and awareness techniques.
McMinnville Firefighters Association desires to work closely with city officials and McMinnville Fire Department to make the community a safer place to live and visit. Any input or questions from the community are greatly appreciated.
Association officers can be contacted by e-mail at email@example.com.
