Board of Trustees

State law gives the Board of Trustees responsibility for conducting all Fund business.

The ten member board consists of five active firefighters, one retired firefighter (elected by other retirees), the City Treasurer or individual performing those functions, the Mayor or an appointed representative of the Mayor and two citizen members elected by the firefighter trustees.

These individuals ensure that all assets of the Fund are used for the exclusive benefit of the Fund's members. Although they volunteer many hours of their personal time in service to the Fund, they are not compensated for their time. They are truly dedicated men and women.
