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.
If you or your Local wants to assist with Clean Up (Muck) and Demo of IAFF Members homes in the Houston/Beaumont Texas area, please contact Brandon Day in the Houston Command Center at 214.415.0201.
We're all thinking about our members in Texas and Louisiana who are on the frontlines of Hurricane Harvey helping communities and their citizens knowing their own homes and possessions may be lost.
The best way you can assist your brothers and sisters is through the IAFF Disaster Relief Fund, which provides short-term, immediate financial assistance to IAFF members affected by major disasters.

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.
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!
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?
