On behalf of the Brother’s and Sister’s of the Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin, I warmly welcome you to the new PFFW website. On this site you will find information about our organization, the firefighter locals we represent, and the value we place on serving the citizens of Wisconsin and protecting Public Safety.

The Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin represents 4,000 fire fighters in over 100 local communities statewide. The PFFW advocates an effective allocation of fire fighters, EMS personnel, and mobile resources to operate successfully on the scene of a fire or medical emergency. The PFFW is nationally recognized for assisting in efforts of building an emergency response system that delivers a time-critical response to area citizens.

When we are not responding to daily emergencies, we are working within the communities teaching the importance of fire safety, raising awareness to our charitable organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and Firefighters’ Coats for Kids, and taking part in the political process ensuring that our local elected officials and our state legislators understand the importance of our profession and what it takes to ensure your safety.

The PFFW’s core objective is being an advocate for career firefighters in Wisconsin, which is the most important function that we serve. The PFFW also serves to cultivate a closer feeling of friendship and fellowship among the fire fighter/EMTs of the State; to promote legislation to advance the interests of fire fighter/EMT personnel; to maintain and improve an effective and substantial pension law; to promote a safe and healthy working environment for fire fighter/EMT personnel; to promote emergency medical services as a fire-based service; to protect the fire fighters/EMTs in their positions; and to maintain and improve the right to collectively bargain for fire fighter/EMT personnel in every department in the state.

Our site enables our members to access much more information. Please check out our Facebook page and Twitter feeds to stay up to the minute with the latest news in the PFFW.

If you should have any further questions about our organization, please feel free to contact our office at 608-251-5832 or email us at pffwoffice@pffw.org.

Thank you for visiting our new website and supporting the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin!
