Although over 2,500 fire fighters are proud members of the PFFAL, our programs help protect the lives of EVERY fire fighter and EVERY citizen in Alabama. We represent the fire fighters themselves, and not the departments that they work for. Your contribution is not used for salaries or the day to day operation of any fire department. We do this to fund the programs that our Alabama fire fighters faithfully stand behind. By helping us, you are standing behind the courageous men and women who make our communities a safer place to live and raise our families. Our members include the Professional Fire Fighters of :
Alabaster, Albertville, Anniston, Athens, Attalla, Bessemer, Birmingham, Calera, Cullman,
Daphne, Decatur, Demopolis, Dothan, Florence, Foley, Forestdale, Fort Payne, Gadsden,
Gardendale, Gulf Shores, Guntersville, Helena, Homewood, Hoover, Hueytown, Huntsville,
Irondale, Jacksonville, Leeds, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery, Mountain Brook, Muscle, Shoals, Northport, North Shelby, Orange Beach, Pelham, Phenix City, Prattville, Rainbow, City, Russellville, Saraland, Scottsboro, Selma, Tuscaloosa, Tuscumbia, Vestavia Hills.
• SAVING LIVES through support of the burn centers at The University of Alabama Birmingham and The University of South Alabama.We now fund 100% of the virtual reality equipment now used at the Arnold Luterman Regional Burn Center at USA Medical Center in Mobile. This amazing tool has proven to ease the pain and suffering of burn victims undergoing treatment and physical rehabilitation.
• REBUILDING LIVES through our Disaster Relief Fund. This resource provides assistance to the families of fire fighters killed or injured in the line of duty.
• SPONSORING Safe Call Now. This critical resource helps fire fighters, EMTs, law enforcement and their families to cope with and recover from emotional trauma suffered in the line of duty.
• BRINGING HOPE through the Pink Heals Fire Trucks. This program raises awareness for ovarian and breast cancer, as well as lending much needed moral support to women facing these issues.
We do not use a professional fundraiser and instead chose to conduct our fundraiser ourselves. Our fundraiser is new, and is still unknown to most people. But our organization is not and represents the men and woman of one of the most respected professions in Alabama. Without the help of the community our life saving programs would not exist. Whether it be fire, auto accident, medical emergency or natural disaster, we are the first to respond. As fire fighters, we realize that we may be needed to go beyond the call of duty. That is a call we proudly rise to answer.
