United Yuma Firefighter's Association

Covid-19 has been a difficult time for every public safety member across the nation. From protective equipment shortages, to quarantines it’s been a challenging time.
One thing that has held true is just how amazing our community really is. We have been fortunate to have received so much love and support from the citizens and business in Yuma. We wanted to say thank you! Thank you for the food donations, the homemade masks, and mostly the smiles and waves we receive when we drive by. Thank You Yuma ! #yumastrong

When we heard our local Intensive Care Unit nurses were working hard to treat Covid-19 patients, we thought we’d show them some love. The United Yuma Firefighters Charity donated lunches from Firehouse subs to the entire day and night ICU crew. The Yuma Community has been so good to us, we had to pay it forward. Thank you to the men and women who work day in and day out helping to keep Yuma safe and healthy! ... See MoreSee Less

“Protection of pensions” that’s what the last item on the list says, in the picture below. This illustration was used in 1928 during the IAFF convention. Unfortunately for us it seems that some things haven’t changed. In Arizona and other states across the nation, Firefighter organizations have led the charge on pension reform. The truth is the Arizona PSPRS found itself in a difficult position after the Great Recession. Like many other organizations during this time we faced many challenges; challenges brought on not by the actions of our members but instead the economic downturn that hit every industry in our great nation. The Professional Firefighters of Arizona spent countless hours working with politicians looking for solutions to keep our firefighters benefits, while also creating sustainability in the system. It is incredibly disheartening to hear local officials consistently blame the PSPRS for every financial problem they face, and use the funding of the PSPRS as their go-to reasoning to justify a myriad of unfunded priorities. The voters of Arizona approved pension reform which went into effect one year ago; this reform is working but it will take time. Local government leaders who publicly discuss the PSPRS with a total lack of context or full disclosure of facts are only breeding resentment against our firefighters and police officers; hardworking, honest men and women who place their lives on the line to protect our citizens.  

If you would like to know more about what is actually happening with the PSPRS and how it is affecting your local government, please contact us, because somebody needs to serve as an advocate for the public safety personnel who serve your communities everyday.
Congrats to Jake Gompert and Kate Gompert on the arrival of their new baby Marshall 6lbs 13 ounces. Both Mom and baby are doing awesome !!! Welcome to the newest member of our Fire family!!!
