Remembering the Fallen

All Fired Up

First, it was with a saddened heart that we learned Nenana Fire Department lost one of their members,Johanne Nolywaika, in a vehicle accident on January 11, 2016. First Vice President Dan Grimes was able to attend the memorial services along with other area firefighters to offer our heartfelt sympathy.

ASFA business:

The ASFA Executive Board is currently pinpointing dates for a Budget and Spring Board meetings. Until then, the following has been happening around the state with ASFA.

Competition Committee

The Firefighters Competition is being revamped, and the committee currently has some good dialogue. The committee does need a couple more chapter members to assist with developing new events and rules. The ASFA requires any changes to competition to be announced 6 months prior to the Alaska Fire Conference to all chapters. The competition committee should have, at minimum, a list of events, alternate events, and equipment required by ASFA Spring Board. (Spring Board TBA this week.)

Pick.Click.Give

The ASFA is again part of Pick.Click.Give in which you can donate to an organization when filing for Permanent Fund Dividend. When donating, a tax deductible form is sent to your email. This year there is a Double Your Dividend sweepstakes when you Pick.Click.Give. The ASFA received $4,600 last year.

ASFA Raffles

The ASFA/AFCA gun raffle is currently being reconciled. There were about 725 tickets sold, which covers the raffle expenses meaning success!

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at jjstubblefield@writeme.com.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Stubblefield, President

ASFA AD&D Benefit Policy
The ASFA pays for its members to have Accidental Death and Dismemberment Policy through Provident. Our membership is determined by the member lists ASFA chapters from around the state send in with dues.

Members are not required to fill out beneficiary forms.  If there is no form on file at claim time, the state beneficiary statutes are used to determine the beneficiary paid.  The order is typically spouse, children, parents, siblings, and then estate.  If any members wish to elect a beneficiary that falls outside this order, it is important that they keep an updated form on file with their department or the association chapter.  Below is the appropriate beneficiary form for any members who wish to keep an updated one on file.
