Brownsville Firefighters

Happy International Firefighters Day!!! This job takes us to some very unique locations for a variety of reasons. Some tragic, some inspirational, some dangerous, but all of them memorable. The best part about the fire service will always be the family we make along the way though. Sadly, not all of the firefighters pictured below are still with us but they are apart of our lives nonetheless. We thank all of our brothers and sisters for their dedication and service. We proudly recognize those who gave their lives in the line of duty. We also pray for those that struggle with service related illnesses or injuries. We are all very proud of the communities we serve so we also thank you for allowing us to be apart of your lives as well.

Take care out there, everyone!

Serving Our Community Proudly

The Brownsville Fire Fighters Association Local 970 was established on March 1, 1948. With over 70 years of continuous affiliation to the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF), we are one of the oldest labor unions in South Texas. We are also a proud affiliate of the Texas State Association of Fire Firefighters (TSAFF). Our membership is comprised of approximately 165 men and women who proudly serve the Brownsville community as firefighters, paramedics, and rescue personnel. We work closely with the Brownsville Fire Department and the City of Brownsville to not only provide EMS and rescue services but community awareness as well. We are constantly looking for ways to expand our presence in the community. We always love an opportunity to give back to the amazing citizens that have given us so much. While the mission of the fire service is to “protect lives and property,” the BFFA proudly supports our brothers and sisters as they fulfill those duties. Though the challenges we face are ever changing, the Brownsville Firefighters will always be there to answer the call with courage and professionalism.

Good morning, everyone. Just a reminder that the last day of early voting is tomorrow. We’ll be supporting Commissioner Ben Neece for re-election and we hope you will too. Come be apart of
this pivotal moment in our city’s future. With so much growth and change within reach, your vote could be instrumental in the success of this community. We hope to see you at the polls. 

Have a great day!
Good morning, everyone. Just a reminder that the last day of early voting is tomorrow. We’ll be supporting Roy de Los Santos and we hope you will too. Our community needs your input on its future so your vote is extremely important. We hope to see you out there. 

Have a great day!
Good morning, everyone. The polls are open so there’s no better time than the present to make your vote count! We’ll be voting against Proposition 8 on the ballot. Prop 8 is the formation of an audit and oversight committee. That may sound like a good thing but our fear is that it could be used to justify the suspension of certain long-time city services. Rumors of emergency medical service privatization have been around for several years and could potentially be explored through this action. Brownsville EMS and now the fire department’s EMS division has served this community faithfully for decades. We’d like nothing more than to continue that proud tradition. We humbly ask for your support in this matter. 

Thank you all and have a great day!
Hello, everyone. We just wanted to show our support for Commissioner Ben Neece running for re-election for Brownsville City Commissioner District 4. As always, we want to encourage you all to exercise your right to vote no matter which candidate you support. The more we all participate in the democratic process, the stronger our city becomes. Below is also a link to find the closest polling location near you. Best of luck to Commissioner Neece and all of the other candidates! 

Have a great night, everyone.

Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. We hope you are all having a wonderful evening. We just wanted to remind everyone that early voting has already begun and continues until April 27th, 2021 for Election Day on May 1st, 2021. The Brownsville Firefighters will be showing our support for Roy De los Santos for City Commissioner District 3. As always, we respect your right to cast your vote how you see fit but we strongly encourage you all to make it out to the polls to help decide our future. There is so much on the horizon for Brownsville and our surrounding communities and we are going to need strong leaders to manage that growth. Best of luck to Mr De Los Santos and the rest of the candidates. We hope to see you all at the polls!

Thank you and good night!
Good morning, everyone! Have a great weekend with your families and friends. We also give our thanks to those essential workers that continue to keep us healthy, protected, and well supplied. Stay safe out there!

Good morning, everyone. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and many blessings for you all in the new year. God bless!
Good evening, everyone. We hope that all of you are doing well. Christmas is right around the corner and so too is the department’s annual toy drive. You can help too and all you have to do is make a purchase at the Alton Gloor El Pollo Loco on 12/9 from 5pm-8pm. A portion of your purchase will be donated to the toy drive. Thank you so much and we hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. 

Good night.
Happy Halloween, everyone!! Though the rules for Halloween fun are a little different this year, we still hope you all have fun with your families today. Be safe out there and thanks to all the frontline workers for serving our community and keeping us safe. 

Have a great day!
Good evening, everyone. As some of you may have heard already, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #2035 are in danger of losing their hall. Covid-19 mandates forced them to close down for many months but they have finally reopened at half capacity. The Brownsville Firefighters paid them a visit today to make a donation and see how else we could help. We have a long history with our VFW brothers and sisters. Our monthly meetings have been held in their hall for quite some time and many of our own firefighters are veterans themselves. Their sports bar serves as their base of operations for their many civic contributions including honor guard and flag detail services. We proudly support our veterans as well as local businesses and we ask that you do the same in their time of need. 

They will gladly accept your donations but would love for you to come by and see them at 1801 Veterans Drive in Brownsville. They will have live music this Saturday with $15 beer buckets. You could also stop by and watch the Cowboy’s game for even better beer specials. 

Best of luck to you VFW #2035 Brownsville. God bless you all for your service to this country and to this community.
Good evening, everyone. Don’t forget that we’re still taking orders for our Breast Cancer Awareness shirts until the end of the month.

Any orders placed today at the link below will be ready for pickup on 10/26. Get them in soon!

Have a great night!

Good morning, everyone. I just got word from our partners at Team Graphix in Los Fresnos that they will begin processing orders later today. We started this drive a little late because we’re utilizing online ordering for the first time but we both wanted to make sure you guys have your orders as soon as possible. All the orders taken in by today should be ready for distribution by early next week. They advised me that there are many open carts so be sure to finalize those orders as soon as possible so you can be part of the first group to get your shirts. We’re doing great so far and we appreciate all of your support.

Thank you and have a great day.
Hello, everyone. Below is the design and the website where you can order your 2020 Breast Cancer Awareness shirts. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Imelda Santillana and her family as they continue their fight against this terrible disease. Our friends at Team Graphix in Los Fresnos are still working on the site so the colors on the graphics may be a bit off but the logos and colors that will be on the shirts you receive are the ones pictured below. This is all new for us but we’re learning as we go to improve our customer service. 

We have our classic navy tshirt as well as a dri fit option available. And back by popular demand is the 3/4 sleeve baseball shirt. We’ve added more colors this year as well as youth sizes. Your orders can be shipped or picked up at Team Graphics in Los Fresnos. We’ll take orders throughout the month🎀

Thank you.
