A message from the Darreff Family

Thank you from the Darreff Family
We wanted to pass along this message we received earlier today from Phil Darreff, Bob Darreff's son: My mother and I want to thank you and the department for all that you did for my father during his hospital stay and for the honors at the funeral. We are immensely thankful for the donations and support. Furthermore, we are very appreciative and forever grateful that the members of Engine 56 and other companies remained by my dad’s side in solidarity for the duration of his journey, it was truly amazing. We wish you and the entire Philadelphia Fire Department a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2020. From, The Darreff Family

One Philly
7.1 During our most recent weekly update, the One Philly team reported that the following issues have been resolved and should be reflected in our next pay cycle:
• Hazmat Premium Pay will be accurate.
• Hazmat OT pay will be accurate.
• Hazmat Longevity pay will be accurate.
7.2 In essence, the 3% Haz Mat calculation has not been accurate, and that issue is resolved. The Philadelphia Wage Tax rate has been adjusted to reflect the lower rate that was effective July 1, 2019. A refund, although minimal, will be in your paycheck before year’s end.
7.3 In the near future, we expect a few additional major issues to be resolved:
• OT Location on Fire paystubs should be resolved in the next two pay cycles. This means that that all OT payments that are included in each paycheck will be listed on that paystub.
• Leave balances (sick, vacation, AL, Comp) will reflect accurately on your paystub for the first time since One Philly went live within the next two pay cycles. This is a huge issue that has impacted the majority of our members. We will blast out a message once we have confirmation that this issue has been resolved so members can reconcile their balances accordingly

Franklin Institute

Franklin Institute Discount Tickets

Hello Local 22 Members:


I hope you are having a great October.  I wanted to send you an update with a new code that our Local can use on Franklin Institute tickets for the upcoming special exhibit.


On October 19, the museum will open a world premier exhibit that will be the first of its kind in Philadelphia.  Based on the internationally bestselling book series, The Worst Case Scenario: Survival Experience, the exhibit is an immersive, hands-on experience that challenges guests to think about how to survive in unbelievable (yet plausible!), situations.  Do you have what it takes to jump between cars on a moving train?  How about the ability to detect a lie?  The ability to survive in quicksand?  In this exhibit you’ll be faced with wildly ridiculous scenarios, you will experience them firsthand, and then you will learn about real people who have survived to tell their stories. 


As always, members of Local 22 can save up to 20% off oftickets.  Follow three easy steps.


  1. Go to
  2. Login or create an account
  3. Purchase tickets using your organization specific code: PFF22GRP
  4. Enjoy The Franklin Institute!

Missing Overtime

One Philly Update - Missing Overtime

Through an internal audit of our most recent payroll processing (Thursday September 26), it was discovered that approximately 75 of our members were shorted overtime dollars that were to be paid to them today.  The bulk of these members were part of the most recent FEMA deployment.  Local 22 has been working closely with PFD payroll since last evening to address this issue and it was agreed today that these missing overtime payments would be processed as a special supplemental payroll immediately.  Members who were affected should expect a second deposit into their normal direct deposit account in the next few days.  As always, members are reminded to monitor their pay for accuracy.
