The PFANJ was honored to be on hand today in Woodland Park with Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill to help launch her #SummerOfSALT campaign. The event brought together stakeholders from across New Jersey and national organizations to kickoff the effort to ensure the SALT deduction cap is repealed and talk about why it matters to New Jersey families. PFANJ Treasurer Matt Caliente spoke on behalf of PFANJ members to detail the negative impact the SALT deduction cap has on New Jersey's first responders.

WHO WE ARE

The Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey was originally established and chartered as a State Association by the International Association of Fire Fighters on October 29, 1929. It was called the Uniformed Firemen’s Association of New Jersey, and included charter locals Newark Local 71, Carteret Local 292, Perth Amboy Local 286, Woodbridge Local 290, and Rahway Local 295. A short time later, the union’s delegates saw fit to change the association’s name to Fire Fighters Association of New Jersey, and it operated as such for more than 30 years. Delegates to the 1996 convention, however, were concerned that there be no misunderstanding of the union’s calling and mission. They moved by resolution to change the name of the organization to the Professional Firefighters Association of New Jersey.

Today, the PFANJ often referred to as the IAFF. The IAFF exists on three planes: our parent IAFF headquartered in Washington, DC; the IAFF State Association, the PFANJ, headquartered in Trenton; and our local affiliate unions spread across New Jersey. These organizations are designed to allow information to flow back and forth for the benefit of all members.

Since 1929, the PFANJ has grown to upwards of seventy local unions of varying size and complexity, representing over half of New Jersey’s approximately 6,000 professional firefighters. In addition, the PFANJ represents more than 500 EMS professionals who are members of PEMSA (Professional Emergency Medical Services Association) IAFF Local 4610. In all but a few cases, PFANJ/IAFF affiliates are the recognized bargaining agent responsible for terms and conditions of employment in their respective venues, regardless of any other affiliation.

Our local affiliates range from small fire districts, to full time round-the-clock suburban fire and rescue agencies, to the state’s largest and busiest urban fire departments.

TO MY SISTERS & BROTHERS IN CHRIST: -PARENTS: (AND ALL...PLEASE READ!) Please share this information!!! Copy/paste to everyone!!! This is pretty new technology, so stay calm. If your kids already got their shots, know that you are good parents who are doing the best you can with the information you have available... ...So don’t freak out if your kids already got vaccinated, because it may not be till the ***COVID-19 VACCINE***...but from now on... Please be aware of this possibility before you let a needle get near them from now on. I’m sending this as soon as I figured it out... Please breathe, remember GOD is LOVE & is in control, & y’all are great parents! I love you. THE MARK OF THE BEAST CAN NOW BE HIDDEN IN A VACCINE!!! WE MAY HAVE LESS THAN 2 MONTHS!!! *If you already have it...see “HOPE OF SALVATION” link at bottom, but if you do not yet have it, REFUSE IT AT ANY COST! the risk is great & causes great suffering! A MESSAGE TO THE WARRIOR BRIDE OF CHRIST: The beast, It’s mark, it’s number 666, & it’s plans! -It is not likely what you think, but I believe I can prove it! Please review this information, pray, & warn absolutely as many of our brethren as you can! Time is of the essence...we may have less than 2 MONTHS!!!!! Keep your lamps lit & have plenty of oil!

ORIGINALLY CONCEIVED TO RESTORE MOVEMENT & FUNCTION TO PARALYTICS, THEY SOON DISCOVERED IT DID MUCH MORE! DARPA STEPPED IN & NOW WE ARE POSSIBLY HEADING QUICKLY TOWARDS THE LAST DAYS! A NERVOUS SYSTEM INTERFACE CAN NOW BE HIDDEN IN VACCINES! IN ADDITION TO ABORTED FETAL TISSUE, POISONS, CARCINOGENS, POTENTIAL LATENT UNDESIRED PATHOGENS, OR EVEN UNTESTED NEW SCIENCE WHICH WOULD INTENTIONALLY ALTER OUR GENETIC CODE (LIKE GMO’S) ***DARPA’S: HYDROGEL CAN BE INJECTED IN LIQUID FORM! IT CONTAINS LINKED NANOPARTICLES WHICH SPREAD OUT IN THE BODY LIKE A SPONGE, FORMING A DEVICE WHICH CAN ALSO RECEIVE A SIGNAL & CONVERT IT TO AN ELECTRICAL IMPULSE INDECIPHERABLE FROM OUR OWN THINKING, SECURING CONTROL. THIS IS A FURTHER INNOVATION ON ID2020’s PUSH FOR DIGITAL CERTIFICATES WORLDWIDE CONNECTED TO COVID-19 & POTENTIALLY OTHER MANDATORY VACCINATIONS! IT IS CONNECTED TO PATENT#060606! THIS IS THE BIBLICAL: MARK OF THE BEAST! IT CAN ACTUALLY EXERT CONTROL! VACCINATIONS=SLAVERY!!! If the vaccine works, & I refuse it...I pose no risk to anyone who took it!

It could be the beginning of great suffering which we would be unable to voice! Food shortages may only be the beginning. Our very way of life is at stake! There is a reason & plan behind the fact that all of Earth’s economies worldwide are being hurled into unbelievable debt faster than almost anyone imagined possible. PLEASE DO NOT LOOK AWAY! Please do not let any personal fears overshadow your concern for your those you LOVE! We must stand together!

Hello All, Recently, a student reached out to me stating that she is currently pursing a research project. Her project is about sleep difficulties among firefighters in NY/NJ/CT. This caught my interest because it is a topic that I often wonder about. I am going to attach the link to the survey so hopefully we can get some good data for her. She said she is mainly looking for career firefighters to participate. There is more information about her project on the survey if you click the link. https://forms.gle/YBkRWQAST9Y9bzt96 Thanks!
Courtesy of FIREFIGHTERCLOSECALLS.Com All, Thirteen EMS providers from around the state have died from complications of COVID-19 since March 31, according to the New Jersey EMS Task Force and multiple EMS squads. And hundreds of other EMS workers have fallen sick with COVID-19 symptoms in recent weeks, causing a strain on rescue units, nearly a dozen members of the emergency response community told NJ Advance Media. The number of coronavirus cases within their ranks - and concern for older volunteers with underlying medical conditions - have led to staff shortages, forcing some squads to temporarily drop service...

That all changed thanks to an ambulance crew recruited from a poverty-stricken black neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that operated between 1967 and 1975. They became the very first ambulance workers in the U.S. trained in advanced life support, setting the bar for generations of emergency medical technicians (EMTs).
