Your union needs your help to provide needed emergency funds to our IAFF Disaster Relief Fund.
Over the last two weeks, you've seen your brothers and sisters in action in response to Hurricane Harvey, working around the clock to rescue literally tens of thousands of civilians, while risking their own lives and knowing their own homes were likely damaged or destroyed. And throughout, your union was on the ground helping them in their time of need, providing food and water, direct financial assistance, vaccinations, behavioral health support and anything else needed to make sure they get through the incident.
And now, as Hurricane Irma - one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever make landfall - is hitting Florida, where tens of thousands of members are in the storm's path, we are ready to mobilize a team to be the ground to support our members again with whatever they need.
The assistance we provide our members whenever they are displaced from their homes, whether it’s from a hurricane, floods, wildfires, tornadoes – any kind of disaster - is possible through our Disaster Relief Fund, which is resourced for normal levels of these kinds of disasters.
But we aren’t funded at a level to take on these multiple unprecedented consecutive events like Harvey and Irma. We have to rely on contributions to make up the difference – and that’s where this IAFF needs your help right now by donating to the IAFF Disaster Relief Fund as soon as possible.
You can send a check to:
IAFF Disaster Relief Fund
1750 New York Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20006
Or you can make a donation by credit card online at www.iaff.org/disasterrelief.
Thank you for generosity and support for your brothers and sisters in their time of need.
