National Firefighter Benefit Summit


Through the clout of this Association's membership and the volunteer efforts of firefighters working together, MSVFA will make tremendous strides on behalf of all firefighters in Minnesota. This clout will enabled us to introduce and pass legislation aimed at improving working conditions and safety standards for volunteer firefighters. MSVFA will constantly working to help volunteer firefighters in Minnesota. We strive for involvement at every level. Members will serve on committees and projects both on the State and National level. MSVFA hopefully after October will have representation on the National Volunteer Fire Council, an advocacy group that works diligently on the national level for our nation's volunteer fire service. The MSVFA strongly encourages every volunteer firefighter to join the NVFC. Click here to join the NVFC

On the legislative level, MSVFA will continue to introduce and fight for legislation to improve the fire service, or to oppose legislation that would have a negative impact on the volunteer firefighter. We 'go to the wall' to assist State agencies to secure funds for their budget requirements. We assist the Minnesota Firefighters to facilitate the passage of legislation to improve and increase retirement benefits.

Emphasis on membership remains a very important priority. A combined effort of the current membership, plus the potential numbers of volunteer firefighters in the State (19,665 est 100 FDs have not reported yet), could accomplish much that is needed for the fire service. It is important to remember that numbers do count when dealing with the Legislature.

We believe that once you have read about and are familiar with what the Association has and will continue to accomplished for firefighters, you will want to join the thousands of active members who have decided to stand up and be counted.

As an Honorary member, you already benefit from the overall activities of the Association as well, but your addition to the active membership rolls would add to the numbers the organization needs to achieve its objectives on behalf of the entire fire service. As our active membership grows, additional benefits can also be implemented.

As you can see, most of the advantages enjoyed by the individual volunteer firefighter today can be traced to the collective efforts of a group of firefighters working through the mechanism of MSVFA.

Wouldn't you like to be a part of an organization to make a different in your profession? Your active membership is very important to us, because sometimes ONE PERSON can make the difference.

Joint today and help us to help you. Only $10 per year per active member and $30 per year for associate members.
