Tomorrow morning at 7 am, Captain Eric “Buck” Johnson will walk out the doors of Station 4 one last time after faithfully serving the citizens and visitors of the City of Green Bay and Village of Allouez for the last 26 years. Captain Johnson started with the Green Bay Fire Department on March 1st, 1993 as an EMT-Paramedic. He joined the National Guard as a Flight Medic in 1985, and faithfully served our country until 2005. Prior to being hired on the GBMFD, Eric worked for the Oconomowoc Fire Department for 10 years. He worked at various stations throughout his career climbing from the rank of Private to Captain, with most of those years serving the West Side at Stations 3,4, and 6. He was also a Training Captain for 6 ½ years, and served on the Hazardous Materials Team and Arson Task Force. Throughout his career, Eric has had many interesting calls. There is one that sticks out to him more than any of them, and that is the day that we lost Lieutenant Arnie Wolff at the Edgewood Fire in 2006. Captain Johnson also remembers the Leicht’s Dock Fire, multiple large fire scenes with victims trapped, and a drowning in a pool off of East Mason Street where the child was resuscitated and made a full recovery. When asked what Eric will miss the most, he stated he will miss the talks around the coffee table with the crews in the morning, as well as trying to encourage younger members starting out their career. With retirement, he is looking forward to teaching Fire Science classes at NWTC, working at De Pere Fire Rescue as an Assistant Chief of Training, and if there is any time left… hunting! Please help us in congratulating Captain Eric Johnson on his 26 years of service protecting the citizens and visitors of our great community from the perils of fire and medical emergencies… ...

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!
