A BRIEF HISTORY OF OUR ASSOCIATION
The Burlington County Professional Firefighters' Association, Local 3091, is affiliated with the International Association of Fire Fighters, AFL/CIO/CLC. In addition, we are members of the Professional Fire Fighters Association of New Jersey, which is the State Charter Association for the International.
We are the oldest bargaining unit for career Fire Fighters and Emergency Medical Technicians in the following Burlington County townships: Medford, Westampton, Willingboro, Cinnaminson and Mount Laurel.
We received our charter on March 10, 1987 and through
the past 20 years we have seen our Association grow from our first President,
Joseph Verrill, and 3 initial founding members, to our present active membership
We welcome back 14 returning members from Cinnaminson FD.
We are presently involved in numerous charitable fund raising activities on an annual basis, including Alex's Lemonade Stand and our "Fill the Boot for MDA" campaign, which occurs each year right before Labor Day .
Proceeds from our Poker Night events are utilized to support the "Sean Fund." The "Sean Fund" is a fund established to assist members of our local, or their family members, who might need financial assistance with any medical condition in which their medical coverage or insurance falls short, or those members who are falling on hard times.
