The International Association of Fire Fighters chartered the PFFWV on December 20, 1930. The membership of the PFFWV is comprised of Local Unions of fire fighters in the state of West Virginia. The PFFWV serves 23 locals with about 1000 active and retired members.
2017 PFFWV Fall Training Summit
The PFFWV is proud to present our 1st biennial Fall Training Summit. This event will be held in Charleston, WV on September 25th – 27th at the Embassy Suites. Charleston Professional Firefighters Local 317 will be the host for this inaugural event. This unique opportunity offers training in both job related and union skills. The PFFWV is working in conjunction with the West Virginia Professional Chiefs Association, as well as the International Association of Fire Fighters to provide an excellent source of training for our members. This is an opportunity that we encourage all locals to take advantage of regardless of size.
It is obvious that there will need to be limits on class sizes. Each local will be guaranteed spots based on the same formula as delegate participation at convention (please see PFFWV Const. & By-laws). In an effort of fairness to each local, please distribute equally among the classes. Remember, as each person learns, he/she has the capacity to bring this new knowledge back and share throughout the department and local.
