Orange County Professional Fire Fighters

April 13-19, 2014 is Public Safety Telecommunications Week

Each year, the second full week in April is dedicated to the men and women who serve as the "first" first responders.


These are the people who communicate with those who call 9-1-1. Our Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs) calm the callers and give medical instructions before our emergency responders arrive on the scene.


In 2013 your Emergency Dispatch Center:

  • Handled 190,250 total calls
  • Dispatched 99,726 emergency calls
  • Answered 98% of all 911 Calls in less than 10 seconds
  • Dispatched 98% of emergency calls within 60 Seconds

This is the 60th year that the IAFF and MDA have joined together to help Fill The Boot.

We have a new contest this year. Each Friday we collect, Union members may enter a guessing contest for what the daily total will be.

If you want to enter this contest, click HERE to do so. This entry will only be used the week of collection and you will need to resubmit each week.

Only one entry per member. Please read  the rules on the submission form. Entries MUST be in before 5 PM on each Friday. (Friday April 4, 11, 18)

We will also award a steak dinner for the crew that raises the most amount of money per collecting capita.

We hope to raise more money than we did last year, so please get out to help fill the boot. Last  year we raised $100,783.

As you may be aware, we have a very important political race to win. Recently, two of your principal officers attended a very intense training program offered by the IAFF. 

The way we have been involved in politics does not work.

We will be making some very serious changes on how, what, when, and why we do things from now on.

We are looking for volunteers... if you are or are NOT interested in helping please complete this short form. This way we know if we have your help or not. 

Please take a moment to complete this questionnaire.

Committee Recruiting Drive

Attention Local 2057 Members

The new Bylaws have started, we are in need of members to participate on Committees. Committees are a great way to be involved in a small aspect of the Union and to make a big difference. Being a voice of the membership on one or more committees helps to ensure things are being done as a group collective rather than an individual one.

Please take a moment to look at the Committee Page, and see if any of the committees would interest you. If so, please contact the appropriate person listed.
