Firefighters are there for you
on your worst day.

DEATH AND DISABILITY

The modern firefighter is an all-hazard responder who is frequently called upon to be the first line of defense to respond to a broad range of emergencies across the County, State, or Country.

RETIREMENT

Being a firefighter is a physically demanding career that is not comparable to most 9-to-5 jobs. That’s why the retirement system can’t be directly compared to typical pension plans and 401K accounts.

SAFETY ON THE JOB 

Firefighting is a dangerous profession, and a growing body of research and data shows that firefighters are at an increased risk for different types of chronic illnesses, such as cancer and heart disease.
