THANK YOU TALLAHASSEE FOR STANDING WITH FIREFIGHTERS!
We have some great news to share! Firefighters have a collective bargaining agreement and we owe our community a huge THANK YOU!
Your phone calls, emails, stories and support made all the difference!
HERE'S WHAT WE ACHIEVED TOGETHER...
A LIVING WAGE
Firefighters agreed to a generous wage freeze in the first year while increasing take-home pay for starting firefighters who are the lowest when compared to other Tallahassee first responders. We've achieved this through flex-insurance monies, increased incentive pay and reduced mandatory retirement contributions.
Fire-Paramedics will receive a more fair and equitable compensation for their knowledge, skill, and advanced life support level of patient care. Your Fire-Paramedics provide the largest pre-hospital healthcare in the region and continue to be on the front-line of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Improved firefighter health and safety through wellness initiatives. Helping to change the culture with measures to reduce nicotine use and keep firefighters healthy. Since the State of Florida provided benefits to firefighters diagnosed with forms of occupational cancer our firefighters are taking new steps to remain cancer free so that we can serve our communities longer.
