Our History

The Firemen’s Benevolent Association of Tampa

Established in 1909 the Firemen’s Benevolent Association of the City of Tampa has served the men and women of Tampa Fire Rescue for over a century. Founded as a widow’s and orphan’s fund for the families of fallen firefighter’s the FBA has grown to support the health and welfare of Tampa’s Firefighters and has stood to provide physical, emotional and financial assistance to its members in times of need.

 

These brave men and women who have dedicated their lives to the service of their community are, at times, faced with hardships of their own– devastating hardships that impact not only themselves but their families as well. In keeping with the rich traditions of the fire service and its brotherhood, the Firemen’s Benevolent Association was organized to offer assistance to our firefighters during these difficult times.

To all Benevolent Association Members:

Open enrollment is upon us and the FBA would like to provide some clarity regarding the Voluntary Benefits available to Tampa Firefighters.

All who have previously enrolled in AFLAC may continue those policies, add new AFLAC policies AND/or elect to enroll in the newly available Colonial policies. Mike Wall will continue to serve as our AFLAC representative as well as the new Colonial policies that are now a available.

The Executive Staff at our Local 754 has done an unprecedented job in establishing this new Health Trust including all of the ancillary voluntary benefits that we now are able to offer.

Any elections that result in a change to an AFLAC accounts - whether cancelling, modifying or adding coverage - all changes must be processed thru the Benevolent office to accurately post on payroll deduction.

If you have any questions contact Mike Wall or the FBA office for assistance.

Stay safe!!!
