Brothers and Sisters in Massachusetts(and anywhere else where Unions are strong) don't realize how good we have it until you hear the Tennessee State President explain what its like to be union in that state. We are extremely fortunate!!!

Thank God for Unions. Especially the IAFF. The greatest Union to work and belong to. Your proud supporter of Union firefighters Patrick

Thanks for classing it up there boys. You really help your union by acting like 12 year olds who just discovered profanity.

OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SERVICE

In Tampa, as with other major American cities, the evolution from all volunteer to career fire companies occurred due to the arrival of steam technology. Tampa’s first organized volunteer fire department was founded in1884. Seven “bucket brigades” were organized to serve the city. On May 10, 1895, the city council passed ordinance #307 authorizing Tampa’s first professional, paid fire department. A. J. Harris was named chief to preside over 22 fire fighters in five stations at an annual budget of $18,000. The paid firefighters worked in the stations for ten to twelve days at a time. Most of the firefighters lived near their duty stations and were permitted to go home for meals, provided they could return within one hour. Their salary was equivalent to that of police patrol officers, about $600 a year. From May 10, 1895, forward the fire department began to evolve. First the “bucket brigades” were slowly replaced by hand operated pumpers pulled to the scene by the firefighters. Fire hydrants and steam engines were introduced to do the work of pumping water to firefighter’s hoses. With the introduction of steam engines came the requirement of horses to pull the extremely heavy apparatus.  read more
