Welcome to the NRFA Website

The NRFA is going through a major change in the way its organised to the way members are accepted into the Association.

We will be changing to a new Membership System. On joining the Association from now until 15th December 2017, all Firefighters will be offered free membership until the end of this year and then follow up yearly payment will be made through Direct Debit from your Monthly/Quarterly Cheque.

The New NRFA Application Form will be available here ASAP.

Under our new Chairperson, Stephen McFadden who is stationed in Buncrana, County Donegal, the change has gone underway and you as members will see the benefits very shortly.

This website is currently under construction and when it is finalised, all documents relating to the Retained Fire Service will be available to every member.
