We are affiliated with the International Association of Firefighters and the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts. As a union we take pride in ourselves and our profession and it is our mission to seek a harmonious and professional relationship with our employer, so together we can work in collaboration, to provide the highest level of service to the citizens of Easton. We value the importance of promoting professional conduct and compassionate service in an atmosphere that encourages teamwork, professional development, diversity, respect, honor, trust and support amongst our members. We also promote as safe and healthy a working environment for firefighters as is possible through modern technology and the establishment of just and reasonable working conditions. The health, welfare, and safety of our membership and the citizens of Easton, who we took an oath to protect and serve, is our TOP priority.
We’re honored to serve the community as Firefighters and EMT’s, but we also believe in the importance of serving our community outside the capacity of our profession by supporting local causes, scholarships and youth sports. We also volunteer our time for good causes such as blood and platelet drives and have offered our services to various humanitarian efforts such as assisting the search and rescue efforts in Brimfield after the devastation caused by tornadoes. We further volunteer our time and effort toward the causes of the various charities we work to support and also take it upon ourselves to carry out our own personal charitable efforts, such as our annual delivery of holiday food boxes to the elderly and less fortunate members of our community.
