The IAFF, Why We Fight!

Ask Your Legislators to Take Action on PFFM Filed Legislation
Updated On: Feb 01, 2017

The Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts is constantly working to improve the safety, working conditions, and to protect the benefits of its more than 12,000 members.  Part of that process is filing and supporting legislation on Beacon Hill that directly impacts our members.  

With your help we have the opportunity to pass the following PFFM priority legislation again during this term:

·      HD 1347 – Rep Claire Cronin - An Act relative to firefighters cessation    
program         
·      HD 1670- - Rep John Velis - An Act Relative to Parkinson's Disease Disability and Death in Firefighters
·      HD 2154 – Rep Daniel Cahill - An Act relative to disability benefits
·      HD 3108  Rep Nick Collins - An Act relative to disability or death caused by contagious diseases, presumption

Remember to let your lawmakers know that these are important issues for you, your family, and the citizens you protect.
