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!
Sunday February 7, is the joint Local 330/FOP 7 Super Bowl Party at the FOP lodge.
During the game there will be a Wing Cook-Off challenge between Fire and Police. At this time we have only 1 participant from Local 330 making wing sauce and competing. If you have any interest in representing Local 330 , please let me know and I will get word to Kevin Evans. You only have to prepare the sauce of your choice. Wings are provided.
Even if you don't want to participate in the wing cook-off, please make plans to come out and enjoy a fun filled afternoon at the FOP lodge and watch the Super Bowl! Please feel free to bring your significant other.
Starts at 5:00 and wings will be sold after judging around 6:00.
Full service bar, plenty to eat and drink all night.

With the beginning of the New Year, the application process for the IAFF-Motorcycle Group (Ohio Chapter) is once again open.
This chapter serves as a way for Ohio members to plan and organize rides that are closer to home. The idea of a one or two day ride is preferable for many of our member's who are still active fire fighters. Read More....
AFD will again be participating in the Firefighter's Chili Challenge. The date will be Friday January 16th at Lock 3 (and maybe January 17th also). We are looking for nominations on who should represent AFD this year.
