Coats for Kids 2014

West Bay Auto Union Account

Brothers & Sisters,

A new account has been set up at WestBay Auto Parts for our local membership to use. 

Its use saves you 25% on products they sell, not to include oil and fuel products. The more we use it the greater the chance we have at possible future increased discounts.  Just go to any Westbay and give them the code of "2819" and enjoy your IAFF discount.

A very special thank you goes to Brothers Charlie Bratcher and Joe Eberle for setting this up.

IAFF Justifyit Campaign

Texting and driving is an epidemic sweeping our nation and your community is not immune. With an average of 3,000 deaths per year, it’s time to put an end to distracted driving.

As fire fighters, it is our responsibility to keep the community safe and we see texting and driving as one of the most preventable risks across the nation today. The #JustifyIt effort is designed to educate the community on the dangers of texting and driving, the distractions it creates and the horrible damage we’ve seen it cause, based on our experience as fire fighters responding to accidents.
