    It is a great honor that the North Haven Professional Firefighters Association , IAFF Local 2987, has been awarded the United Nations 2021 Special Award of World Bicycling Day for promoting safe cycling for school children. The North Haven Firefighters have been promoting bicycle safety for the last 25 years through their bike helmet safety program. Each year the firefighters visit every first grade class in the public school system and explain the importance of bicycle safety and wearing a helmet while riding. They then host a day at the fire station where each first grader signs a safety pledge and is given a new bicycle helmet. The program began 25 years ago after the firefighters responded to several bicycle accidents involving children who were not wearing helmets. The firefighters saw a need to showcase the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle and the program was born. Through the years the firefighters have given out more than 2500 bicycle helmets to children of North Haven.

    World Bicycling Day was established in 2018 by the United Nations General Assembly by acclamation of all UN state members. This year the Special Award of World Bicycling Day was given to 13 recipients around the world. The North Haven Firefighters award was 1 of 4 awards given out in the United States. The 2022 World Bicycling Day will take place next year on June 3. For more information regarding World Bicycling day please visit their website at: https://www.un.org/en/observances/bicycle-day

    The Federation of State and Provincial Professional Fire Fighters (FSPPFF) held its officer elections by mail-in ballot and virtual submission in December.

    Two officers – Chair Pete Carozza (Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters of Connecticut) and Vice-Chair Bobby Lee (Hawaii State Fire Fighters Association) were re-elected to their positions. Texas State Association of Fire Fighters (TSAFF) Secretary-Treasurer Brandon Day was elected FSPPFF Secretary-Treasurer, a position left vacant by Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois Secretary-Treasurer Tom Roate who decided not to run for reelection.

    “Brother Day comes to our executive board with a wealth of knowledge and experience,” says Carozza. “I know he will be a great asset and am looking forward to working with him.”

    Day also serves as 11th District Field Service Representative and Garland, TX Local 1293 vice president. He is also a member of the IAFF Disaster Relief Go-Team.

    “The FSPPFF has served as a great resource for all of us to stay informed about issues affecting the fire service and how those can best be addressed,” says Day. “I am looking forward to being a part of the process.”

    The FSPPFF meets periodically to exchange legislative, political action and current issues affecting firefighters in states and provinces and to provide a means for a stronger relationship and coordination between state and provincial associations.

    Peter Carozza, Chairman

    Robert Lee, Vice-Chairman

    Brandon Day, Secretary-Treasurer
