GARLAND FIRE FIGHTERS ASSOCIATION
IAFF Local #1293
WHO WE ARE
Serving Those Who Serve You
On January 18, 1948, the Garland Fire Fighters Association was chartered as a Local of the International Association of Fire Fighters. For more than 60 years, the GFFA has been Local #1293.
The Garland Fire Fighters Association's primary purpose is advocating for its members, ensuring safe working conditions, appropriate equipment, and wages and benefits consistent with other firefighters in the area. The GFFA accomplishes this task by working with Fire Administration and City Staff and by being politically active.
The Garland Fire Fighters Association is committed to being a part of the community we work in. Through our Charities, we provide support to those in the community in need. Each year the GFFA hosts a Shopping Spree, providing an opportunity for kids in need to shop for Christmas for themselves and their family. Our annual toy driver provides toys for hundreds of Garland children each year. Garland Little League, multiple schools, Sons of the Flag, and many more are GFFA Charities beneficiaries.
The Garland Fire Fighters Association works with other Local in Texas and across the nation to provide safe working conditions for firefighters.
