Submit Your Photos

It’s time for a new and improved!

Photos above courtesy Lee Wilson, Raleigh, NC.

We will be renovating and improving YOUR North Carolina State Firefighters’ Association website in the near future. The site will of course be mobile responsive (meaning friendly viewing, reading and navigating on your mobile device).

To help get things started, we are asking firefighters to submit photos to be used on the new site. We’re looking for photos with people (firefighters) in them. They can be current or historical. Include training, incidents, your station or apparatus…. but please include people in the shots. Take a group shot at your next training session in front of your best truck. It’s that simple.

We’ll need them in digital format, so if it’s an old photo, please scan and upload.

2014 North Carolina State Firemen’s Association Legislative Day

2010 Legislative Day

Legislative Day 

May 28, 2014

Please mark your calendars and plan to attend. It has been said a thousand times, and it is so true—legislators want to speak to members they represent. House and Senate members respond best to those who vote for them.  This is a most important time to make friends and tell our story.

On May 28th, 2014, we will meet and greet our House and Senate members.  Our goal is to have at least one member from each politica district in Raleigh, so we need our members from the East, West and Piedmont to attend legislative day.

We will meet at the NCSFA Office at 09:00, hold a briefing from our lobbyist, go speak with our legislators about issues facing North Carolina firefighters, and then meet at the Nature Research Center (Museum of Natural Science) in the 4th floor meeting room for lunch. Please contact Kris at with any questions and to let us know that you will be in attendance.

There are 120 members in the House of Representatives and 50 members in the Senate. Not sure who represents you and your area? Look them up here.

Legislative Days of previous years have been a huge success. Last year we encouraged the passage of HB 327, HB 357, and HB 358.  We were involved in the passage of the  2013 Appropriation Act which included funding for the Volunteer Safety Worker’s Compensation Fund and VIPER.  Please plan to participate in our 2014 visit to the State Capitol.  Because of the strong participation of our members in 2013, we were successful with about 90% of our Legislative Agenda items.

We need you to participate.  Sign up today with Kris!
