It is vital, particularly in times like these, when pensioners are under threat,
that fire-fighters stand together.

The National Association of Retired Firefighters was founded in 1968, to fight for
conditions of former firefighters and Fire Service widows and their families.
NARF consists of locally based branches, which enable members to meet, socialise,
and keep in touch with old comrades from within their own Brigades, and Direct Members
who have no local branch, or do not wish to be a member of a branch, but would like
to belong to an organization consisting of like minded people that they understand,
and will represent them.
However, most importantly, being part of a national organization allows retired
firefighters to unite, and their voices to be heard at a national level. Being national
also allows NARF to be represented on other important bodies for the retired, such
as the National Pensioners Convention, and the Public Service Pensioners Council,
Age Concern England, Age Concern Scotland, and Age Concern Cymru.
