Local 2580 History and Facts
Updated On: Jul 29, 2009 (08:58:00)
CHFFA Local 2580 History
 
  • First IAFF Local 2580 chartered in June of 1977 with 11 charter members listed on the original charter.  The original charter is on display at CHFD Station 1.
 
  • First Local / Association disbanded circa 1998.
 
  • Current IAFF Local 2580 re-chartered in August of 2001.  Forty-Eight (48)  members signed the 2001 charter.  It, too, is also on display at CHFD Station 1.
 
  • Discussion about reinstituting the Association and IAFF Local occurred in late 2000, early 2001 after the off-duty death of CHFD Brother Pete Sznerch, who, along with his daughter was killed in a motor vehicle crash in Florida in December of 2000.  Brother Sznerch, who was a IAFF member at his original department in Pinellas Park Florida, had several pieces of IAFF identification with him and his vehicle.  The identification alerted responding Florida Firefighters that they had a brother in need.  The local in Florida stood by in the hospital with Brother Sznerch’s surviving family, taking care of any needs and providing financial support until they returned to North Carolina.
 
  • 2 time PFFPNC Local of the Year.
 
  • 90% participation rate in an open shop local.
