Dear IAFF Brothers and Sister,
Welcome to the official Akron Fire Fighters Association Local 330 Web Page. Local 330 was chartered through the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) on April 8, 1932 and today represents over 350 Firefighters of the Akron Fire Department. Local 330 is the sole bargaining voice of our members.
Local 330 members are active participants in our community and we take great pride in both our department as well as the City and the citizens we serve!
Please take some time to look around our site and get to know us. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of our Executive Board members.
President, IAFF Local 330
MDA & Local 330
2014 marked the 60th Anniversary of the partnership between the IAFF and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Firefighters from across the United States and Canada have made the promise to not stop raising money for MDA until a cure is found for the over 45 neuromuscular diseases that comprise muscular dystrophy. Local 330 members have been raising money every year through a multitude of events to help battle these debilitating diseases.
MDA research grants currently are supporting more than 250 projects worldwide.
Akron Firefighters Local 330 and Retirees, along with many friends of Local 330, hosted an "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" at the Union hall on Saturday, August 23. This was done in memory of retired L330 members Steve Moyers and Bob Pratt as well as retired Shaker Hts L516 member Shaun Probert......all of who lost their battle with ALS. With approximately 60-70 people in attendance, we were able to raise $2251 in just over 1 hour! Thank you to all who attended and participated! A special thanks to retired L330 member Ernie Davis for spearheading this event and L330 member Dave O'Neal for all the work organizing this for us!
