The Official Website of the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union
There is now a single point of contact for first responder mental health resources in the State of Michigan!! Wayne State University is launching the Frontline strong together website and phone #. The website is fst5.org. You can go there and get peer support contacts from across the state for yourself or if you need a CISM/peer support team to come out after a traumatic run, get mental health professionals, contact info as well who work with first responders that can help you through a tough time. You also can either call +1 833-347-8766 or click on the link on the website and you will be connected 24/7 to a operator who is also a crisis counselor if you are in crisis or need help. These operators not only for those in a crisis, they can connect you with peer support, cism/peer support traumatic call out and mental health professionals. In addition, they have resources for financial help, child care, substance abuse, caretakers and much more. These resources are for the first responders and their families. Please go to the website and use these resources. Now every first responder in the state of Michigan can get help and resources 24/7!!!. Firefighters from the MPFFU helped to shape how this website and phone number worked and designed. If you use this and have any problems, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.MPFFU LEGISLATIVE LOG - January 2023

The IAFF/MPFFU Political Training Academy
The MPFFU recently hosted the IAFF Political Training Academy in Novi on October 24th & 25th. Eighteen members from locals across the State attended. The class was taught by specially trained IAFF instructors: Cody Leever (President of Indiana Local 1262) and Christopher (Blue) Bartley, Directory of IAFF Government Affairs State Policy & Legislative Representative.
The IAFF Political Department developed this two-day IAFF State/Provincial Elections and Political Capacity Development Program to provide students with hands-on political training and access to statewide/provincial campaign experts and resources. The goals for the State and Provincial PTA are to provide members modern and up-to-date campaign skills, building a network of local leaders capable of managing small-scale local campaigns or playing key roles in larger state/provincial wide efforts and to enhance, and where absent build, increased political campaign capacity and structures in the state/provincial associations.
IAFF-FC and Aetna have teamed up to offer IAFF retired fire fighters and their spouses comprehensive Medicare Advantage plans. Click here to learn more.
