    • What's New at APFF

      The 2019 Bill Lundy Legislative Conference is taking place this week at the Arkansas State Capital. At the direction of the Arkansas Professional Firefighter political director Mattew Stallings. Memebers from around the state were updated on issues that can impact firefighters. Cancer Legislation like HB1299 sponsored by Rep. Nicole Clowney. This could help those who get occupational cancer a bit more time to fight the disease. Instead of requiring a firefighter with cancer to return to work or get fired. HB1345 would address issues with occupational cancer and retirement. HB1614 sponsored by Representative Hawks, this would provide firefighters a bill of rights. Police officers already have one. Active and retired APFF members lobbied the Arkansas House and Senate.

      Brothers and Sisters, 

      So far the 92nd General Assembly is off to a bang. There is comprehensive restructuring of the state offices in the works, with over 1400+ pages being drafted. There are structured attacks on working men and women of the states’ retirement plans in the works. But strong relationships have been made over the past few years to stand in solidarity against any, and all, trying to take away the promise of a pension.

      The hard work of our very own legislative director will never go unnoticed. This week HB 1299 and HB 1345 were introduced by a strong advocate for us, Representative Nicole Clowney of Fayetteville. HB 1299 brings to light the gap we face, as firefighters, with a death benefit but nothing for a disability caused from occupational cancer. HB 1345 will address the ability for all firefighters in the state to retire because of the debilitating circumstances one may face with occupational cancer. These bills are not slam dunks, but are a start to a bigger picture that needs to be painted for our state. This will also go to show firefighters in the state that this APFF will stand up for them and their livelihoods. 

      If you know a firefighter in Arkansas who has won or lost to occupational cancer please share the following registry.

      It is with a heavy heart that the APFF reports that the Pine Bluff Fire Department has lost one of it's members in a tragic vehicle accident on Thursday, April 11th.

      Pine Bluff Fire Fighter Caleb Satterlee was driving along US Highway 425 North at the Drew and Lincoln counties line when he lost control of his vehicle and spun out.  His vehicle crossed the center line into oncoming traffic where it was struck by a tractor trailer.

      Funeral Services were conducted by the Stephenson-Dearman Funeral Home on Sunday, April 14th.

      Satterlee was a full-time employee with the Pine Bluff Fire Department.  Please hold his wife, Amy, and his family in your prayers.

      Oct 9, 2012 - IAFF Local 4544 (Cabot FD) and the entire 14th District mourns the devastating loss of their Local President, Marty Stumbaugh.

      On Monday, October 8th, Brother Marty Stumbaugh suffered a sudden and fatal brain aneurysm while out of state.  Brother Stumbaugh is well respected by his coworkers and the loss is very tragic.  He is survived by his wife Mindy, his daughter Macy (8) and his son Mason (2).

      Visitation will be on Thursday, October 11th from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Mt Carmel Baptist Church, 163 Mt Carmel Rd in Cabot, AR (72023).  The funeral service will be on Friday, October 12th at 11:00 AM, also at the Mt Carmel Church.  Interment will follow at the cemetery across the street from the church.  The funeral services are being provided Thomas Funeral Home in Cabot.

      As can be imagined, a loss like this places a considerable financial burden on the family.   An account has been established with Arvest Bank at 510 W Main St in Cabot for those members or Locals who would like to help Marty's family in this time of loss.  Checks should be made payable to the Marty Stumbaugh Family Fund and can either be mailed directly to the bank.

      Cabot Fire Department Chief Phillip Robinson and IAFF Local 4544 wish to express their sincerest gratitude for the outpouring of support from firefighters across the state of Arkansas.
