Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and to learn more about your local fire fighters.
As members of the International Association of Fire Fighters, the 180+ members of Local 1401 are part of a family of over 300,000 professional fire fighters throughout the US and Canada. As a labor organization our focus is on ensuring adequate staffing for emergency response in our communities; staffing that protects the safety of our citizens and our fire fighters. This mission is carried out through collaborating with fire department management on day-to-day issues, working with the staff of our jurisdictions and being actively engaged with elected officials.
As responsible and compassionate members of our communities we work hard to support those in need through a host of charitable endeavours. Our signature charitable program is the Santa Rosa Fire Fighters’ Toys For Kids program; each year this program distributes holiday gifts and school supplies to over 4500 children in need in the greater Santa Rosa Area. We are humbled year after year by the outpouring of support from all of you during our toy drive and fund raising efforts. We also raise funds for the Alisa Ann Rusch Burn Foundation and the Muscular Dystrophy Association to provide much needed research and support for those suffering from burn injuries and muscular dystrophy diseases.
L1401 also sponsors the Santa Rosa Fire Fighters Honor Guard which stands at the ready to support the families of fallen fire fighters, police officers, EMS workers and military personnel by providing honors befitting the service of their family member. The members of the Honor Guard take a solemn oath to be reverent, respectful and faithful in honoring those who have given their life in the service of others.
As the president of L1401, my door is always open to our community as an ambassador for our members and to provide any assistance that I can.
Thank you for supporting your fire fighters and for taking the time to learn more about L1401
