Dear fire service colleagues, Thank you for being a member of California State Firefighters’ Association - the state’s oldest nonprofit trade association working to advance the professionalism of the fire service in the Golden State. There are many reasons to join a professional trade association of your peers, and we hope you peruse the following pages and learn a little bit more about the many exclusive benefits and services CSFA provides to its members. Since its founding in 1922, CSFA has worked to make the fire service better, safer and more responsive to the needs of Californians. Our membership includes all ranks of the fire service – from students in fire technology programs to seasoned fire chiefs. Members are paid professionals and well-trained volunteers, serving in metro, tribal, state, federal, industrial and local fire districts throughout California. In addition, all aspects of emergency response are represented by our members, from dispatchers to mechanics, and from fire prevention professionals to administrative aides. We are the most broad-based fire service organization in the state and we take pride in our diverse membership. Beyond the practical, educational, and money-saving benefits described within these pages, there is another, equally important, reason that you may have joined CSFA. As a CSFA member you are part of a firefighting community that stretches from Oregon to the Mexican border, and from the rugged high Sierra to the beaches of Southern California. Your CSFA membership provides the opportunity to network with others throughout the state in the dynamic and diverse world of emergency services. Please take advantage of all CSFA offers you, especially in the areas of training and professional development, and check the CSFA website often throughout the year for important fire service updates and monthly updates to this list of membership benefits. Welcome to California State Firefighters’ Association!
