      IAFF Local 42, IAFF Local 3808 and the Kansas City, MO Fire Department are working on a joint initiative through its Labor Management Committee process to approve and enact new protocols and procedures to reduce the risk of cancer amongst our members.  This is the first step in our efforts to create a Cancer Prevention Program and will be seeking funding to improve for washers and dryers in more facilities to clean our PPE.  The Kansas City Star featured the video that is shown below on their website talking about the new changes being made on the fire ground to greatly reduce the risk of absorbing toxins within our body where we are most likely at risk.

      IAFF Local 42 is working on similar policies and procedures in all of its bargaining units and we will provide updates to our membership as they develop. 

      Currently there are two (2) vacancies for Trustees of the St. Florian Fund.  The Fund is seeking persons who are interested in serving.  The Fund was established to “provide charitable and educational assistance to current and retired Kansas City, Missouri fire fighters and their families and to members of the general public who have an announced interest in or who have been impacted by public safety.”  Experience in non-profits, finance, fund raising and/or the law is preferred but not required.  Interested persons should notify Sherwood Smith at ssmith@iaff42.org on or before May 15, 2017.   

      The 30-41 Memorial is in need of mowing crews this summer. Generally one group mows a month at a time (3-4 times).

      If you can assist with landscaping, trash pick up or you are a fire crew that works near the memorial your assistance is also needed in watering trees, shrubs and grass in the dry months.

      If you are near the memorial and can assist with trash pick up please do so, the memorial sits on a busy street and is often in need of trash pick up.

      If you can assist with mowing or landscaping this summer please contact Dave Thurlo, via phone at 816.820.4323, or email at davethurlo@gmail.com thank you all for your help in preserving our memorial.

      Tickets are on sale NOW at the Union Hall
