Welcome to CSFA!


The Connecticut State Firefighters Association, Inc. (CSFA)

CSFA.ORG - CT Firefighter Memorial and Academy

Welcome to the Official Website for the Connecticut State Firefighters Association, or CSFA.

(First, please bookmark this website now for easy access to CSFA in the future.)

This is the place to learn everything about CSFA, our mission, our goals and our proud membership of brave Firefighters that spans the state of Connecticut.

We hope that some day soon Connecticut State Firefighters Association membership will include every fire company in the state, volunteer and career, because of the great benefits our members receive. We also hope that the public will learn more of our efforts to help educate communities and Connecticut’s Firefighters on issues related to safety from fire.

Who are the members of CSFA?

The Connecticut State Firefighters Association is a non-profit organization that has more than 26,000 members (22,000 Volunteer Firefighters, 4400 Career Firefighters) and we hope to soon be able to say that every Firefighter in our state is part of our organization.

Coming soon to this website will be a complete list of Fire Departments and Fire Companies that are members of CSFA.

Please make sure that your Fire Department or Fire Company is up-to-date with CSFA membership dues to ensure the best benefits coverage for yourself and family.

 What is CSFA?

The Connecticut State Firefighters Association (CSFA) is the focal organization for Connecticut’s Fire Service Members in matters relating to Federal and State legislative initiatives, Firefighter Death and Disability Benefit Claims and the exchange of pertinent information. CSFA coordinates with the various Fire Service organizations at the national, state and regional levels.

Why join CSFA?

Over the past five years, the Connecticut State Firefighters Association has paid out almost $1 million in benefits to members and their families. The officers of CFSA, its current members, their families, and many other “friends of the bravest” all know the many benefits of membership in our organization.
