BENEFITS AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS
With support of the IAFF, these are just some of the resources and programs available to members.
EDUCATION AND SCHOLARSHIPS
Between multiple scholarships, and reduced tuition through Kaplan University, an advanced education has never been more affordable. The IAFF also has an online learning module that allows students to learn at their pace, covering topics such as retirement, health and safety, legal issues, human relations, politics, healthcare, and more.
Did you know that union members get to have a union representative present during any and all disciplinary meetings? Wether its career-altering, or something relatively minor, it doesn't hurt to have someone in your corner helping guide you through the process. Arbitration, negotiations, legal insight, and expert counsel are all available to you through the IAFF.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Line Of Duty Death assistance, Peer counseling, Health and Wellness initiatives, Cancer prevention, Suicide prevention, PTSD resources, Smoking cessation, Burn Injury assistance, and more are a click away through the IAFF. These are all available to our members.
Fireground survival, communications, leadership, HAZMAT, FireOps101, Online learning, Firefighter safety, and more are all training topics for members to take advantage of through the IAFF.
Let's face it, every department depends on funding for basic operations. Through the IAFF, members can learn how to succesfully write grants, utilize pension tools to ensure retirement preparation, access the IAFF Financial Corporation where they can get advice on investments and insurance, apply for an IAFF credit card with special member rates, and can even take advantage of discounts through businesses like Amazon and AT&T.
JUST FOR FUN
Maybe you like to ride motorcycles. Maybe you consider yourself a wine aficionado. Are you a sportsman? The IAFF has clubs just for members with similar interests.
