LETTER FROM THE IAFF GENERAL PRESIDENT

To All IAFF Affiliate Leaders,

We need your help to provide needed emergency funds to our IAFF Disaster Relief Fund.

Over the last several weeks, you've seen our members 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 you've also seen this union helping our brothers and sisters in their time of need, providing food and water, direct financial assistance, vaccinations, behavioral health support and whatever else is required to make sure they get through the incident.

And now, with Hurricane Irma moving through Florida, where tens of thousands of our members are in the storm's path, we are again mobilizing a team to be on the ground to support our members with whatever they need. While Hurricane Irma had lost some of its strength as it made landfall, it has brought widespread destruction throughout the state, and our members' needs will be great.

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. That Fund is resourced based on decisions made during conventions, by our delegates, who have properly provided for it to be resourced for normal levels of these kinds of disasters.

But we aren’t funded at a level to take on these multiple, unprecedented events like Harvey and Irma. We have to rely on contributions to make up the difference - and that’s where this IAFF needs your affiliate’s help right now.

I am personally asking you and your local to step up to help our members affected by these devastating hurricanes 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
Suite 300
Washington, DC 20006

Or you can make a donation by credit card online at www.iaff.org/disasterrelief.
Our union is able to continue to stand strong for our members because we all pull together in times of need. You know we have your backs, and I know you have ours.

Thank you for your continued generosity and support.

In Solidarity

Harold Schaitberger
General President

LOCAL 30 MDA GOLF OUTING UPDATE

Brothers and Sisters,

 

I’m happy to report that this year’s MDA Golf Outing raised $11, 296. I would like to thank all of you that supported the event by participating, sponsored holes, and/or bought raffle tickets. We had just over 100 golfers and nice weather. We had an appearance by the MDA State Ambassador Keisha Graves. She asked me to extend her gratitude to all of you for how much that we do for the MDA each year. Keisha is a Cambridge resident and looks forward to being a part of our future events. New to the event this year, we had a “golf ball cannon challenge” sponsored by Nationwide Insurance. The participants shot a golf ball out of an air rifle at the green (about 300 yards away). The person who got the ball closest to the hole received a 1 week vacation to their choice of 3,000 affiliated resorts (airfare not included). The winner was Mike Kotowski (son of retired Lt John Kotowski) with his ball landing only 9 feet from the hole. (For the record, my 6 year old son Will, shot the ball closer but was disqualified because of his age and that he wasn’t a registered golfer! haha). The golfers had some great prizes to choose from and the Grand Prize went to FF Jeff Keefe. Thank you to the Wayland Country Club for their continued hospitality over the years. Thank you to Mike Fahey and Sylvia Williams of MIT Management for their continued support and coordination with getting another great turnout by the other MIT groups. In addition to MIT Management and their affiliates, I would like to thank Local 30, the Cambridge Firefighters Federal Credit Union, and FF Steve Kelley for their generous donations. Thank you to Local 30 President Chris Haynes for volunteering at the event. Special thanks to Bill Hugh for his time and dedication selling raffle tickets over the past month and volunteering at the event.

 

Thank you
