The Los Angeles Firefighters Association (LAFFA) was formed in the first part of 1924 after the abolishment of what was then the Fire Department Union.

The main purpose of the LAFFA has always been liaison between the members and management to better the working conditions of the members of the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD).   Information in the form of complaints, gripes, and ideas for improvement are solicited from the members and then discussed with management.  Most of today’s benefits with regard to working conditions have at one time or another been the subject of discussion.

 In 1925 William Meyers was elected president.  He reorganized the Association.  The Constitution and some of the By-laws formed at that time are still in use by the Association today.

 The men and women coming on the department, often accept as a matter of course, many benefits which have entailed long and arduous efforts on the part of an unpaid group of people whose only reward has been the satisfaction of doing something for their fellow firefighters. read more
