What's New at IAFF 1945
In order to make this years St. Patricks day a successful one we need your help. Gabe, Tony and Myself have spent hundreds of hours on the back end planning this day. We need your help the day before, the day of and the night of the event.
Help is needed with set up, serving, sales, clean up and whatever small tasks that we didn't think of. Remember all of this work is worth is as money that is raised goes into the right pockets when they need it most.

Three of your Local 1945 E-board members just returned from a 2 day CPFF convention hosted by Local 5 in Colorado Springs. This is a meeting where most locals from the state gather to receive a state of the union address, visit and network with other locals, and get some insight on what issues other locals are facing, have faced and what they learned.
As everyone can imagine we are not the only local facing tough issues, in fact most of us are facing similar issues. What we did learn is we will continue to have the courage to ask the tough questions and continue to work for all of you; the membership.
