We are hosting a

All Pro Productions is making phone calls on behalf of Local 4392

The International Association of Firefighters Local 4392 is made up of 3 former IAFF Locals. Formerly Locals 2620, 3834 and 3353 represented the Firefighters of Derry, Officers of Derry and the East Derry Fire Precinct. We are recognized by the Town of Derry and the State of New Hampshire as a collective bargaining unit.

 

Our primary mission is to ensure the safety, fair treatment and equitable working conditions for our members. We do this in a variety of ways, which include collective bargaining, committee representation, political involvement, training, and sending delegates to conferences. Secondarily, we take a proactive approach in attempting to constantly improve the services our members are able to provide to the public. We are very concerned with the level of fire and emergency medical protection provided to the citizens and visitors of Derry.

 

In 2005 the Derry and East Derry Fire Departments merged and formed one Local representing the members of the Derry Fire Department. During this merger no personnel lost their positions or rank. Currently there are 2 bargaining units; the firefighters and officers units are covered under separate bargaining agreements with the Town of Derry. Fire Dispatchers are covered under the Firefighters bargaining agreement.

 

The Local has 70 members and has 2 collective bargaining units. The Executive Board is made up of a General President, a Vice President of each unit, a Secretary, a Treasurer and a Chief Steward. Each Battalion in the Derry Fire Department has a union steward.

 

The Local is affiliated with the International Association of Firefighters and the Professional Firefighters of NH.

 

The Derry Fire Department currently staffs 4 fire stations and 4 Battalions. The Fire Chief and Administrative Offices are located at the Derry Municipal Center at 14 Manning Street.

 

The fire personnel work 24 hours on duty followed by 72 hours off duty. There are 15 firefighters on duty each day in Derry divided up amongst the 4 stations. The shift is commanded by a Battalion Chief, a Captain on each Battalion and a Lieutenant at each station. Each station is staffed with a firefighter and a firefighter/paramedic. In addition these personnel, the department has a Chaplain from the Salvation Army who is very active with the members at incidents and during activities of the department.
