Welcome to the Birmingham Professional Firefighters Association (BPFA) weare the local affiliate of the International Association of Black Professional Firefighters (IABPFF).
The Birmingham Professional Firefighters Association is a non-profit organization formed in 1982 by themembers of the City of Birmingham Fire Department. Our purpose is to address issues relevant to our membership, such as promotional opportunities, testing procedures and hiring practices, etc. While these issues remain a part of our focus, we recognize the need to broaden our scope to include community service.
The Birmingham Professional Firefighters Association realizes the importance of community service. To that end, three years ago we established “The Burn Victims Assistance Program” to provide some of the much needed items lost by our citizens in house fires. Each year our organization assists hundreds of families in the City of Birmingham and surrounding areas with much needed clothing, furniture, food and monetary donations.
The Birmingham Professional Firefighters Association recognizes that our organization is only as strong as those that we empower to carry on the vision. We also realize that the empowerment process starts while we are young and impressionable and continues through adulthood. In keeping with this idea, the Birmingham Professional Firefighters Association has instituted an “Adopt-A-School” program through which we provide our members the opportunity to interact with Students fromschools in the community that we serve. We present ourselves as positive role models helping the students with problems that they face from day to day.Our pilot school that we adopted was Hemphill Elementary School.
After our first year working with Hemphill Elementary school we were chosen as the "New Partner of the Year" at the Birmingham Board of Education Partners in Education Banquet.Thementoring program has been well received bystudents and teachers alike.
