Membership Information

Please click the link for a chapter or member-at-large application.

The Alaska State Firefighter's Association is comprised of Firefighter's from across the State of Alaska.  Each Firefighter is a member of a local chapter.  Chapters generally encompass an entire Fire Department.  The annual fees for each chapter are based on the population served by that chapter.  As an example, if your Fire Department serves a population of 1500, the annual dues would be $250 and would include a membership for each member of your Fire Department.

 The Alaska State Firefighter's Association offers many benefits to our members, they include:

  • Scholarships for Dependants
  • Ken Akerly Training Grant (for annual conference)
  • Death and Disability Benefit of $10,000

Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance (AD&D insurance) from Provident helps provide added protection for Volunteer firemen and emergency medical responders.*Volunteer firefighters and emergency responders are covered by our AD&D insurance while performing any activity of their organization, and when they are off duty. Members are covered 24 hours a day for injuries sustained anywhere in the world, and this includes riding as a passenger in any aircraft being used for the transportation of passengers.*Our AD&D coverage includes a Seat Belt Benefit which is an additional 10% of the AD&D benefit that may be payable if an insured person dies as the result of an accident in any vehicle while he or she was wearing a seat belt.
