HR 1886, Federal Firefighter Flexibility and Fairness Act

We, as Federal firefighters, are now engaged in a big push to garner support and co-sponsors for HR 1141, known as the Federal Firefighter Flexibility and Fairness Act.

This cost-neutral federal legislation resolves trade time inequities for federal firefighters. Specifically, the bill ensures that we would get new trade time parameters similar to those provided for city firefighters under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations.


To make this happen, we need your help! A simple app has been created to help you look up your representative and fire off an e-mail in support of the legislation. Please take a moment to help New Mexico-based Federal Firefighters.

With warm regards,

Dusty Warden
President, White Sands Professional Firefighters Association
