Woodlands, TX. – Grassroots political organization Firefighters and EMS Fund provided valuable support to the Woodlands Professional Firefighters Association ahead of the general election on November 3rd. Firefighters in Woodlands, Texas fought for candidates who prioritized public safety and publicly endorsed six local candidates.
Firefighters & EMS Fund worked directly with Union President Erik Secrest to provide support for their efforts ahead of the election.
Mr. Secrest made this statement about working with Firefighters and EMS Fund:
“Right now, we are in campaign season. We actually used half of your donation for a full page endorsement advertisement in a community newspaper for our 8 candidates.
We also recently hosted a FIRE OPS 101 event to educate elected officials of the challenges we face day in and day out. This way, when we approach them at our Town Hall or at the State Capitol with issues we are having, they can better understand and relate because they have personally gone through this training.
I definitely see the value in organizations like Firefighters and EMS Fund. Other than being familiar with the organization’s name, I have had no previous experiences with Firefighters and EMS Fund. Their willingness to support organizations like ours and assist us with furthering our goals and agendas to keep our brave men and women safe is invaluable.
Politics are critically important when it comes to making sure our men and women have the equipment, tools and training to safely and effectively perform their jobs and allow us to better serve our citizens.”
Firefighters & EMS Fund is dedicated to advocating for the safety and well-being of firefighters and their families in our political process. The organization supports local ballot initiatives across the country and works to elect political leaders at the state and local level that understand our firefighters’ and public safety officers’ interests.
