  • Rochester Hills Professional Fire Fighters Union, IAFF Local 3472
    Apr 06, 2009

    Jul 25, 2008
    The men and women of the Rochester Hills Professional Firefighters Union are a collective bargaining unit made up of fulltime firefighters for the Rochester Hills Fire Department. Its members are professional firefighters/paramedics, fire inspectors and administrative support personnel
    Jul 25, 2008
    In 1987 the citizens of Rochester Hills began receiving fulltime fire protection by hiring from the paid on call personnel within the department. The fulltime staff certified and then de-certified a local affiliation with the Firefighters Association of Michigan (FOAM). In 1992, the fire fighters voted to certify a local affiliation, as the Rochester Hills Professional Fire Fighters (RHPFFU), with the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF). The RHPFFU was chartered by the IAFF on October 21, 1992. The ten charter members worked fulltime as firefighter/dispatchers for the Rochester Hills Fire Department. In 2000, the city increased the fire fighter staffing and removed the fire personnel from dispatch. The department began Advanced Life Support services in 2002. With the growth of the City of Rochester Hills, the local has grown to over thirty (30) members and now consists of three platoons of Firefighter / Paramedics providing fire and emergency medical services 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Staffing also includes the Fire Prevention division with Fire Inspectors conducting fire inspections and other Fire Prevention responsibilities. Also, a Training / Safety Officer and an EMS Coordinator conduct classes and maintain ongoing education for both Fire and EMS operations.

    RHPFFU local 3472 has contributed time and moneys to a variety of charitable organizations. The local participates in the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) annual Fill- the –Boot campaign to raise funds for Jerry’s kids. Members have helped with children’s burn camps. The Relay for Life annual pancake breakfast is cooked by RHPFF for those raising funds for cancer research. The local has adopted a stretch of Avon Road between Livernios and Adams and members participant in bi-annual clean-ups. The Older Person Commission (OPC) of Rochester has also enjoyed several breakfasts cooked by Local 3472 members. In December 2008, the RHPFFU had the honor and great enjoyment to adopt a local family and ensure a special holiday. Members from the local took the family shopping for needed food, clothes and some youthful entertainment. The local looks forward to make this an annual event to further our involvement in our community.
