The Tennessee Professional Fire Fighters Association (TPFFA) was chartered on June 20, 1960 by the International Association of Fire Fighters and is affiliated with the Southern Federation of Fire Fighters. The TPFFA protects legislatively the interests of all persons engaged in full-time firefighting, fire prevention, fire instructors, EMS, fire/EMS dispatch and other emergency related services in the State of Tennessee.
The TPFFA currently represents 30 affiliates with approximately 4,500 active and retired members across the great State of Tennessee. Our membership has representation on three state boards and commissions, including the Tennessee Commission on Fire Fighting Codes and Standards, Tennessee Emergency Medical Services, and the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System. We currently have two TPFFA members serving honorably in the Tennessee State House of Representatives.
The TPFFA has two principle officers, President and Secretary/Treasurer, that are elected by and serve under the direction of delegates of the TPFFA. The organization’s other elected positions are Trustees, Finance Committee members and members of the TPFFA Legislative/PAC Committee.
The TPFFA also has comprehensive political action that starts with our locals being fully involved in political grass root efforts in their respective communities. The TPFFA encourages endorsement of our friends in politics from all parties who will stand with us on our issues. Upon receiving our endorsement our friends know that they are receiving a respected endorsement with an engaged membership willing to work tirelessly on their behalf.
The TPFFA is Always on the Frontlines – Protecting the Protectors
