The Arkansas State Firefighters’ Association (ASFFA) is a statewide network of firefighters. We allow firefighters from all over Arkansas to connect with one another and access resources and benefits. We also provide representation for all firefighters, and work with Arkansas lawmakers toward legislation that lets us be heard and helps us be safe.

The Arkansas State Firefighters Association was formed and has been ongoing since 1920, and is the oldest and largest association that works for ALL Arkansas Firefighters.


Fostering a good relationship between firefighters and lawmakers is essential for helping us advocate for ourselves by connecting with elected officials, paving the way toward legislation that protects us. When we make ourselves heard and keep ourselves safe, the citizens of Arkansas can stay safe, too.


Ongoing education is necessary to help firefighters learn the best safety practices and techniques. We help you to obtain the right certifications while building leadership skills and advancing your career.


Effective training helps us respond quickly and effectively to whatever incidents might arise. Good training helps keep firefighters out of harm’s way, and helps us serve our community to the very best of our abilities.

we work better together

For over 100 years, the members of the Arkansas State Firefighters’ Association have joined forces to keep our firefighters safe and improve the quality of our lives and careers. We’re a support network that acts as a resource for all Arkansas firefighters: volunteer, part-time, and full-time alike.
