GCFFA Monthly Meeting

CHANGE FROM NORMAL TIME
Thursday, January 10


Port Bolivar VFD


Dinner begins around 6:30 PM



Recent changes to the GCFFA

Our President, Dan Key, has retired from his position effective January 1, 2019.  Dan has been a huge asset to this organization both as a member with Friendswood VFD, a Board member, and finally our President.  Dan was also a key player as our representative in Austin when the Legislative Branch was in session.  He fought for us and the Fire Service repeatedly throughout his career and kept Galveston County Strong!  Dan was the President of our great Association during the SFFMA State Convention held in Galveston in 2015.  Dan has been the Day Captain of the Friendswood Volunteer Fire Department, Board Member of the Sunset Commission, Instructor at TEEX Weeklong training in College Station, and numerous other committees.  He meets with the Galveston County Commissioners each year to present our Association statistics to insure that each department receives their annual money from the County.  Dan has truly been a valuable asset to our Association and will be greatly missed!  Congratulations DAN on your retirement.

Now.....
We welcome Tommy Cones to the GCFFA Board effective January 1, 2019.  Tommy has been in the fire service for many years and comes to us from League City Fire Marshals Office.  This year, he was responsible for successfully attempting to break the Guinness book of world records for the largest amount of people participating in a STOP, DROP, and ROLL activity in 2018.  He was able to put together the activity with the help of his staff, and gather 1989 people to participate breaking the record of 1719 people.  Congratulations Tommy.  We look forward to having you on the Board for many years to come.  

James Wistinghausen will remain a longtime member on the Board representing Precinct 3.  He will now be taking over the Presidency of the Association.  James was recently re-elected Chief of the Bacliff Volunteer Fire Department and has served as Chief for over 30 years.  He brings many years of experience as a Board Member and Vice President of this great Association and we look forward to him leading us in 2019.


STOP!!!!  DROP!!!! ROLL!!!!

Congratulations League City Fire Marshal's Office for Breaking the Guinness World Record.  

The old record was 1719 people rolling at one time...

NOW.....1989 people Stop, Drop and Roll!
