Welcome to Orange County Fire Fighters Association
Money Being Wasted

Your Orange County Fire Fighters need your help. Orange County refuses to pay a competitive pay plan, and it is costing you more money by doing so.

How is that the case? Orange County spends a lot of money to train a new firefighter. It takes years to master the skills it takes to save your child from a burning building, your father from cardiac arrest, or your spouse from an auto accident. The county spends a lot of time and money training people, for them to just leave for better paying jobs; taking all of that training and experience with them. 

How bad is it? Compared to like size and similar work performed agencies in the state of Florida, and looking at employees on a case by case basis, we have employees 40-60% underpaid. Example: A 12 year OCFRD Lieutenant (who has been promoted two times) could easily start over as an entry level firefighter for the city of Orlando, work 414 hours less a year and make $1,000 more. His equal in Orlando will make $28,896 more than he will in one year.

What can I do to help? Contact the Mayor (407)836-7370, County Commissioners (407)836-7350, and County Manager (407)836-7366 and demand that they offer a fair and competitive pay plan.
