Welcome to the Official Website of

The Professional Fire Fighters Association of Midland, Texas

IAFF Local #4405

It is our desire to reestablish a brotherhood in the Midland Fire Department. The roots of our motives involve a true concern for the firefighters that eat, ride and sleep beside each one of us and the hope that we can assist their families in time of need.
 
It is our desire to have single, combined voice, representing a majority of the department, to address our concerns and issues… and bring them to the attention of departmental and city management and the citizens we serve in a forthright, rational manner.
 
It is our desire to use that voice to improve community relations, increase public awareness and promote the department.
 
It is our desire to give something back to the community beyond emergency services.
 
It is our desire to have fun while doing all the above.

2nd ANNUAL COATS FOR KIDS DRIVE

Text Box:

The Professional Firefighters Association of Midland is pleased to be leading an annual campaign called Firefighters Coats for Kids (FFCFK). This local program targets impoverished children living in our own community, providing them with brand-new, American-made winter coats that help them brave the cold and attend school regularly throughout the winter months. With your generous support, you will play a vital role to ensure that no child in our community is left out in the cold.

                 

With a great first year, in 2013, PFAM was able to purchase approximately 200 "BRAND NEW" coats at a total cost of $6,400. We are going to hold fast to another 200 coats for 2014 also. If you are interested in donating on behalf of this goal we would be happy to provide additional information to you.  If we can answer any questions about our program, please contact Eric Stewart at estewart@iafflocal4405.org .  A link where donation information can be found is available at the following web address: www.operationwarm.org/midland.

Please join in our mission to provide warmth and hope to the wonderful children of our neighborhoods.  The kids are our future!  You may download the following file for more details.

New Video Explains the Facts About Defined Benefit Pension Plans
 

Defined benefit plans were created to assure that after a career serving the public and risking their lives for others, fire fighters had secure, stable and dependable retirement income. Public employees -- including fire fighters -- have frequently forfeited pay raises to improve and protect their retirement benefits. Employees earn less during their careers, but receive good pension benefits that are guaranteed. This guarantee protects employees and family members in their retirement years. Equally important, the accidental disability provisions unique to defined benefit programs are essential for public safety employees who risk their lives every day saving others.

Defined benefit retirement plans are vital to retaining experienced and qualified workers, yet many local and state politicians consider public employee pensions overly generous and are calling for pension "reform" designed to completely eliminate defined benefit plans.

It is time that the truth is told about defined benefit pension plans.
