    • What is the Southern Federation of Professional Fire Fighters? 

      This organization is known as the SOUTHERN FEDERATION OF PROFESSIONAL FIRE FIGHTERS, and was organized February 2, 1995, in Nashville, Tennessee. 

      The purpose of the Southern Federation of Professional Fire Fighters is to provide the best possible resources, services and communications for Southern Federation affiliates of the IAFF; to develop a united effort and consensus of opinion with regards to our common concerns in the South, with the goal of having a positive effect on the IAFF, its constitution and By-laws, policies and resolutions. 

      The Southern Federation of Professional Fire Fighters encompasses the IAFF State Associations and Local IAFF affiliates in good standing within the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Dela­ware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.  Associate membership is allowed to any member or affiliate of the IAFF of any state not currently affiliated with the federation and IAFF members at large. 

      The Association holds an Annual Conference in which delegates of the organization attend. The Conference includes educational modules, presentations that assist delegates in accordance with the organization purpose.

      Foley Local 4772 member Cody Carraway’s son, Easton, is in St. Jude Hospital in Memphis.  His son was diagnosed with cancer (Sacrococcygeal Teratoma). The little boy is 15 months old and has some difficult days and months ahead. Speaking with Brother Carraway they expect to be in Memphis at least 6 months for his treatment.

      Foley Local 4722 is raising funds to help Cody & Kahlee as they care for their son. If you or your local would like to make a donation follow the directions below.

      You can deposit your check at any Regions bank or send it to me, Danny Todd at the address below. I had the pleasure of meeting Easton, Cody & Kahlee at St. Jude hospital and they appreciate the prayers and show of support from the IAFF and firefighting community.

      Cody is posting on Facebook. His March 19 post is powerful and moving. PRAYERS FOR EASTON, CODY & KAHLEE.

      Account #0247514787
      Checks can be made out to Cody Carraway but in the memo section it should say: for Easton Carraway. The back of the check should say for deposit only and must have that account # written on it.

      Vote for our IAFF Member David Harer’s  panel!

      Did you know the Koch Brothers’ network has key positions on Trump’s team?


      For more than a decade, Netroots Nation has hosted the largest annual conference for organizers, grassroots activists, and independent change-makers, drawing nearly 3,000 attendees from around the country and beyond.

      We want UnKoch to be a part of it this year-- but we need your help!

      Panels at Netroots are chosen based on public interest, meaning we need everyone to vote for our proposal! We plan to feature a diversity of voices from our movement that will really highlight the incredible progress we've made over the last year:

      • Mark Hammond will talk about the lawsuit GMU students just filed against their university for Koch agreements
      • Laura Wright will discuss how faculty at Western Carolina University achieved faculty oversight of their Koch-funded center
      • David Harer will highlight how Koch-network professors at Troy University attempted to dismantle the Retirement System of Alabama
      • Chad Stanton will examine how UnKoch research relates to his ongoing student organizing with Color of Change

      Can you take 3 minutes to vote for our session-- UnKoch My Campus: Resisting the Political Corruption of Higher Education?

      Sincerely,

      Samantha Parsons
      Grassroots Campaign Strategist

      If you would like to help, please Click Here to Donate! Garth Goodwin, a 17 year veteran of the Waco Fire Department, suffered 2nd degree burns and a severe spinal cord injury while working off duty. He was performing routine maintenance on an elevated billboard sign and came in contact with high voltage power lines that caused him to fall. Unable to move his legs, he laid there for an extended period of time until someone who lives close to the scene discovered him and called for help. He was transported to Hillcrest Hospital in Waco then air lifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas where he is currently receiving treatment for the extensive injuries he suffered. A long term diagnosis is still unknown. The entire Goodwin family appreciates the overwhelming concern and support for Garth. Of course all prayers and well wishes you'd like to pass along are appreciated more than you will ever know. Garth's circle of family and friends reaches far and wide and he needs us all now more than ever. Thank you again and we will post updates as soon as we can.
