IAFF Briefing on Interoperability and Communications Issues

IAFF to Use Thunderclap to Promote IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial
April 10, 2014 -- Ahead of the release of a much anticipated Memorial Day Public Service Announcement (PSA), the IAFF is testing a new social media application to promote the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial fund and help amplify the message and expand the power and reach of social media.

Haz-Mat-CBRNE Funding Extended in Canada
April 7, 2014 -- The IAFF will be able to train hundreds more Canadian first responders to respond safely and effectively thanks to a two-year funding extension for the IAFF Haz-Mat and CBRNE Training Initiative announced March 27. The funding extension will allow the IAFF to expand the program into Quebec and other areas of the country that have yet to fully take advantage of the opportunity to receive free Haz-mat and CBRNE response training through the program, which has already trained close to 2,000 fire fighters, police, paramedics and other first responders in more than 200 communities across Canada since 2009.

Supreme Court Decision on Campaign Contributions
April 3, 2014 -- On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an extremely troubling court decision striking down the ceilings that Congress has imposed on an individual?s donations to presidential and congressional candidates, political parties and some political action groups. These ceilings are called ?aggregate limits? and eliminating them for federal candidates, as this decision has done, will dramatically impact federal campaigns. Because the reasoning the Court used will be transferable to state campaign finance laws, it will also soon affect state and local races as well.
