     Laurel View Country Club, 310 W. Shepard Ave, Hamden


    As most of you may know, our good friend and brother Paul Rapanault is going through some challenging medical issues. Paul is a fighter, but he needs our support now.

    We have been in constant contact with his family and let them know Paul is also a member of our family.

    Although he is currently having difficulty speaking, his vision is very good.

    We need to show Paul how much he means to the firefighters of Connecticut.

    Please send Paul something to see we are all pulling for him (PLEASE SEND CARDS ONLY!! NO FLOWERS). Let’s try and brighten his day!

    Paul’s address is:

    Paul Rapanault

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

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.”

    “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.
