    Due to the spike in COVID cases from the Delta Variant and its ability to break through the vaccinated population, the Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association of Connecticut Executive Board has decided to postpone the 22nd Biennial UPFFA Convention scheduled for September 19, 20, 21, 22, 2021 at Foxwoods Casino Resort, until April 24-27, 2022. 

    We apologize for the postponement; we feel this decision will protect all delegates, vendors, and guests.

    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
