The Philadelphia Firefighters’ & Paramedics’ Union, Local 22 of the International Association of Fire Fighters, which represents over a quarter of a million professional firefighters and paramedics in the United States and Canada. 

Local 22 has rich history stretching back over 100 years when the organization was founded as the City Firefighters’ Association. Today Local 22 represents the interests of more than 4,500 current and retired Firefighters, Paramedics, Emt’s and officers of the Philadelphia Fire Department.

We are dedicated to making sure that our members are provided with all that they require to ensure that the citizens and visitors of Philadelphia receive the highest level of professional fire suppression, fire prevention and emergency medical services possible when needed. We work to educate and inform the public about the dangers of fire and how a safe and efficient fire and emergency medical service, with appropriate staffing and deployment, can affect their lives.
