THE FSFA

The Florida State Firefighters Association (FSFA) Chartered in 1925 is the oldest firefighter association in Florida, essentially the trailblazers for many of the other associations and organizations that have come after it.

03

DRT

The FSFA has developed a disaster response team that focuses on getting first responders back on their feet and back to work as soon as possible following a disaster. Most recently, hurricane Michael proved the importance of having this team in place.

04

STATE FIRE MARSHAL

“The State Fire Marshall’s office deployed the FSFA to provide repairs to the emergency workers homes and food for their families.” This benevolent service is quintessential for the local response to the communities and citizens by allowing the first responders to focus on life saving emergency response while having the peace of mind knowing their families and homes are secure
