Welcome to the web home of the Professional Fire Fighters of West Virginia. The PFFWV is chartered and affiliated with the International Association of Fire Fighters, AFL-CIO, CLC.
The International Association of Fire Fighters chartered the PFFWV on December 20, 1930. The membership of the PFFWV is comprised of Local Unions of fire fighters in the state of West Virginia. The PFFWV serves 23 locals with about 1000 active and retired members.
The 2019 biennial PFFWV Fall Training Summit will be held October 15th-17th. Weirton IAFF Local 948 will host this years' event which promises to be a combination of great information, networking opportunities and excellent hands-on training.
The Fall Training Summit is a unique partnership between the PFFWV and the WV Professional Fire Chiefs Association. It serves as a demonstration vehicle as to how labor and management can work together to perform our jobs better for the citizens which we serve. We urge each of our Locals to attempt to work in conjunction with their respective fire chiefs and city leaders to send as many of our members as possible to this valuable training experience.
As was the case with our inaugural Summit in Charleston, we ask that you try to be respective of class sizes and distribute attendees among the various classes. For our more "experienced" union leaders who do not wish to participate in the hands-on training, please select the option of Day 1 plus networking opportunities. As a reminder the cost is $100 for all 3 days including H.O.T Class or $30 for those attending but not participating in a H.O.T. Class.
The host hotel is the Holiday Inn Weirton at a cost of $94/night. Please book your rooms ASAP as the block expires on Sept. 14th. The phone number is 304-723-5522 and the group code is WFC.
