      Dear Members of the Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters of Connecticut:

      Health and wellness of our firefighters remains at the core of our mission.  We all understand that Firefighting is a high-risk occupation.

      We are proud to keep our communities safe but we must also keep ourselves safe through healthy lifestyles.  As a UPFFA of CT member, you are part of our family and your wellness matters to us.  In November 2016 Dr. Mary O’Connor, Director of the Center for Musculoskeletal Care at Yale New Haven Health and Yale School of Medicine, joined us at the CT/RI Health, Safety & Labor Seminar held at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino.  Many of us had the opportunity to learn about risks, nutrition, exercise and ways to stay healthy.

      Please take this opportunity to view the video, ‘Promoting Health and Wellness of Fire Fighters’, featuring our own members as they explored an individualized health test.  This program has been well-received and will be an integral part of the CMC Musculoskeletal Performance Laboratory, which is in the design phase.

      Through our new partnership with CMC at YNHH – we can offer you an advanced individualized health testing at a reduced cost.  Recognizing that for many of you this will be an out of pocket expense, we have a special firefighter price of $125 for treadmill and body composition testing (a $200 value).  All information is confidential.

      Please take 2 minutes to explore ‘Promoting Health and Wellness of Fire Fighters’ at Yale New Haven Health | Center for Musculoskeletal Care –  Fire Fighters Video

      For more information please contact: YalePerformanceLab@YNHH.org

      In good health & Fraternally,

      Peter Carozza, Jr. 
      President, UPFFA of CT

      Dear UPFFA of Ct. Member:

      We have developed a member questionnaire/survey; the purpose of this questionnaire/survey will enable the Officers, Executive Board, and Staff the ability to provide the highest level of service to our affiliated locals.

      In filling out the questionnaire be sure to include your contact information, this will enable us to reach out to you in the event there is a question regarding your response.

      We encourage our rank and file members to participate in the questionnaire.

      Click here to access the questionnaire.

      To All IAFF Affiliate Leaders: No one knows better than all of you that this union and our members have been under attack for a number of years now. Scott Walker, John Kasich, Chris Christie, their wealthy friends John Arnold, the Koch brothers, the Ricketts and many more are all on the offensive against us.
