To order a plate, print and fill out the 803FO Form found here http://doa.alaska.gov/dmv/forms/pdfs/803FO.pdf. Bring your completed form as well as a $50 plate fee to the DMV. You must present the form in person as well as bring proof of membership to the IAFF. A copy of your IAFF membership card will be sufficient proof of membership.
Contact your AKPFFA Vice President if you have any questions.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of AKPFFA member Jake Bender to the Alaska Fire Standards Council. He was one of three members submitted by the AKPFFA Board for consideration to the State of Alaska Office of Boards and Commissions. He will be occupying the seat dedicated to the AKPFFA after a successful legislative effort to include the IAFF in discussions regarding state standards and certifications. He is a 14 year firefighter with the Anchorage Fire Department where he currently holds the position of Safety Officer and a member of Anchorage Local 1264. We look forward to hearing from Jake at the State Convention on the current business of the Council.
For now Jake can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year our members spend countless hours in their respective communities supporting local charities and groups. A favorite of the IAFF for over 60 years has been the Fill the Boot program. You see us every year around Labor Day standing alongside roadways, holding our boots high in hopes that you will help us fill them with contributions to support this cause. Below we're sharing with you a simple statement that shows you why we hold our boots high and will continue for years to come. Thank you to anyone that has ever taken the few seconds it takes to roll down your window and join us.
