General Information About the Garland Fire Fighters Association
The Garland Fire Fighters Association (GFFA) was established on January 18, 1958 with 24 charter members. This charter is displayed at the GFFA headquarters. History is important to us because it guides us into the future.
Today the Garland Fire Fighters Associaton has a membership of 240. Ninety-four percent of the sworn members of the Garland Fire Department are members of GFFA.
Activities of the GFFA include our work through Galand Fire Fighters Associaton Charities Corporation. Each year we raise funds through member and corporate contributions to our Charity Fund. For the past 20 years we have provided Christmas to underprevileged Garland children. Each Christmas, GFFA sponsors a shoping spree for children at the Wal-Mart (south Garland). GFFA also supported many other projects that were brought to the membership throught the Charities Committee such as Habitat for Humanity fund raising projects, assisting citizens with minor property repairs and the annual MDA Fill the Boot campaign.
Our office is located near historic down town Galand, at 111 S. Garland Ave. in the lower level of the Chase Bank building.
Our Goal: The safest environment for our Fire Fighters on the job. Fair compensation/benefits for our members. Serve the citizens of Galand in the best manner possible (Customer Service). Be an organization that fosters fraternity and brotherhood for our members.
