Your #PFFAZ legislative team successfully secured an additional five million dollars for Arizona fire districts in the recent Arizona state budget. This funding allocation marks the initial step towards alleviating the state’s fire district crisis.

Representatives from PFFA Fire Districts and the legislative team will discuss with state representatives the most effective way to distribute these crucial funds among districts.

While this is a positive first step in addressing a widespread issue impacting members statewide, further actions are necessary. The collaboration between state legislators and PFFA was crucial in achieving this milestone. We urge all members to support pro-FIREFIGHTER candidates to ensure that similar progress continues. For a list of endorsed candidates for the upcoming primary, please visit the link in our bio. #azfirefighter #azfiredistricts

What does this mean. How do fire districts get more money from the state.

Good job, but as you allude to 5 mil is a drop in the bucket statewide. Please read and vote for firefighter endorsed candidates. You may not live in the district that benefits from the funding, but you may be passing through that district and need their help.

Great job team!!!

But you continue to support City of Surprise Mayoral candidate Aly Cline after she was censured by her own fellow council members for violating various campaign laws and has questionable moral behavior. You should withdraw your support for this candidate! acrobat.adobe.com/id/urn:aaid:sc:VA6C2:ed1c6f53-cc50-4bc0-84b6-852516898215

Brothers and Sisters, this PFFA voter guide contains our recommendations for the upcoming state and local primary elections set for July 30, 2024. Your PFFA team works diligently to determine which officials will work for the best interests of fire fighters, including our pensions, workplace safety needs, and funding for our fire departments.

We hope that you will give strong consideration to these candidates when you cast your ballot. Please be aware, we do not make endorsements in every race.
Also, some candidates do not seek our endorsement, so they do not appear in this guide. Finally, because you will receive a primary ballot that corresponds with your party registration, you may not see some of the endorsed candidates on your ballot.

Your vote is personal. The PFFA team provides this endorsement list to help with your decision-making. We recommend candidates who strongly support fire fighter issues. We never tell our members how to vote, nor do we expect you to follow our advice.

The inception of the PFFA came about as a successor to the Arizona State Firemen’s Association, which was founded in 1924. During that time, Tucson Chief Joseph Roberts was the head of the Firemen’s Association. Interestingly enough, activists in that original organization were mostly chiefs and the organization was open to all firefighters, professional and volunteer. One key activist in the AFSA was Phoenix Deputy Chief, Jake Siken.
