Progressive Fire Fighters Association of Washington DC
The Progressive Fire Fighters Association was established to create a liaison between our Black Brothers and Sisters within the District of Columbia, to collect and evaluate data on all deleterious conditions incumbent in all areas where minorities exist, and to compile information concerning the injustices that exist in the working conditions in the Fire Service, and implement action to correct them. To promote interracial progress throughout the Fire Service; and to see that competent Blacks are recruited and employed as firefighters, wherever they reside, and to aid in motivating our Black Brothers and Sisters to seek advancement to elevated ranks throughout the Fire Service.
- That all ranks and divisions of the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department reflect the ethnic and gender make up of the District of Columbia
- Transparency of all promotional processes, duty and positional assignments, and disciplanary processes for all ranks and divisions of the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department
