    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 info@fst5.org.

    The IAFF Political Training Academy is Coming to Michigan

    The MPFFU is going to be hosting the IAFF Political Training Academy in Novi on October 24th & 25th.

    The IAFF Political Department has developed this two-day IAFF State/Provincial Elections and Political Capacity Development Program to make it easier for members to attend. This two-day classroom seminar is taught by IAFF trained members and will 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.   The MPFFU is providing a hotel room for those attending on October 23 and October 24.  Food and beverages will be provided on the 24th & 25th as well.  Please email tchesney@mpffu.org by September 30th, if you are interested in attending this course.  Send your name and a couple of sentences explaining why you would like to attend.  It is as simple as that.  You will be notified by October 1st if you are selected to attend.

    McColl-Delegato Labor School Scholarship Award Recipients

    The MPFFU Executive Board is pleased to announce that the following members have been awarded the 2023 MPFFU McColl-Delegato Labor School Scholarships.  The Wayne State University Labor Leadership Development School has been educating union leaders and activists for over 50 years. 

    The Delegato/McColl Scholarship was created for active members of the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union to obtain the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to become union leaders at the state, local, and international level.  This scholarship is intended to educate less experienced union members in an effort to prevent knowledge gaps at the state and local level created by the departure of many of our distinguished union leaders.

    This year, the MPFFU received a record number of applications for the Scholarship.  After reviewing the applications, the MPFFU Executive Board decided to award each of these outstanding individuals the scholarship this year rather than making several of them apply in future years.  Congratulations to each of you!
