We’d like to welcome members and visitors to the Raleigh Professional Fire Fighters Association website.

It’s been a year of changes, up hill battles and more. We have new leadership on our executive board. We’ve teamed up with the Raleigh Police Department to fight for better wages. We continue this fight.

We’ve also seen the best in our men and women as they battled a massive apartment building fire in March and responded to Houston to assist following Hurricane Harvey’s devastating impact.

We are proud of our work and our members, and we also realize we have a lot to work on. If you have any questions about our Local, are interesting in joining or anything else, please feel free to contact President Shawn Burns at


Congratulations to the New Recruit Academy

Recruit Academy 42 graduated on September 27th. Led by Capt. Jamie Hill, 36  recruits completed a thirty-two week training program. At the conclusion, they will be state-certified firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians, and graduate as probationary Raleigh firefighters.

As the academy completes EMT certification, the recruits each completed a ride-a-long with current line personnel as well as a 24 hour shift at Keeter Training Center. Their 24 hour shift will consist of normal daily duties while also responding to emergency calls with the training staff.

We would like to acknowledge the hard work of the staff at Keeter Training Center as well as the various companies and personnel that contributed time in assisting with training our new recruits. Recruit Academy 42, keep up the hard work and we look forward to you joining us throughout the city!
