The Washington State Fire Fighters’ Association was established in 1923. The mission in part is to represent the volunteer firefighter. It was the case then as it is now, to be vigilant in representing and improving the health & welfare of the volunteer. While diligent, over the years the WSFFA’s efforts began showing real worth in the legislative arena during the 1991 legislative session, when the WSFFA President Joe Basta appointed then Board member T.J. Nedrow as the Association’s Legislative Chairman.  In 2000, the WSFFA increased its investment in the volunteer as the Association began contracting the services of Ms. Tamara Warnke, Lobbyist.  Thus began a significant endeavor that has resulted in formation of a WSFFA Legislative Committee for further representation, benefits and success for the volunteer.  Since 1991 the WSFFA tenacious legislative efforts has grown to earn the respect of friend and foe alike.
