Firepac Intro
Updated On: Mar 27, 2007


Firepac 10 refers to our involvement as a labor organization in the political activities within our community and region. It means we care about who is elected to serve as our political leaders and that we care enough to get actively involved. As firefighters we serve our communities for 20 - 30 years, however many of the political leaders generally serve from 4 - 8 years. For the most part our political leaders have been elected via a perception of the voting public that they have the interest of the voters at heart. We all know this is not always the case. It is imperative for us, as firefighters, to engage political issues and candidates. It is our goal as a labor organization to actively strive to help elect candidates who understand our concerns. Many of our issues are a matter of life and safety for ourselves and those we serve. Internal research has shown that our members and their families are "high-percentage" voters, meaning that we tend to vote in every election. With just our members and their families we carry over 200 votes, that is an amazing figure. Firepac 10 members are familiar with the issues and candidates and are knowledgeable of the political arena. All political and government related activities of our members are directed by the P.A.C.  As anyone knows, a large group of people with a common goal can be very powerful and produce results. Our profession is an occupation that has earned trust and admiration of the citizens we serve, we can provide a high-profile presence at political activities. Working together we can secure our workplace and provide the best in emergency services possible for our residents.
