Constantly Active in Our Community
The local 69 represents our members of the Denison Fire Rescue. We are an organization under the Texas State Association of Firefighters (TSAFF) and The International Association of Firefighters (IAFF). The TSAFF gives us a voice and recognition at the State government level. The IAFF is our voice and representation at the National level.
Our local 69 represents our members in front of our fire administration, City Manager, Mayor, and city council. We strive for unity and solutions which benefit our members and the citizens of Denison. As an Association, we can represent our members with support for our local city political representatives. We can work with them, back them, and support them for the appropriate protection of our members. Our members benefit with representation for disciplinary appeals, grievances, and legal matters. They are covered by a legal team and legal counseling.
We are involved in the community and involved in helping the citizens of Denison is different ways. Such as:
We give two $500 scholarships each year to Denison High School students
We participate in Fill The Boot for the MDA
We participate in the city sponsored “Keep Denison Clean trash pick up”
We have donated money to the Firefighter Against Testicular Cancer (FFATC)
Our Mission is to serve our members and the citizens of Denison in the highest professional manner.
We shall not strike or take part in any sympathetic strike, as our position is peculiar to most organizations, as we are formed to protect the lives and property of the community.
