ABOUT LOCAL 493
United Phoenix Fire Fighters Association
We’re Local 493, the firefighters of Phoenix, Glendale, Chandler, Tempe, Peoria, and Surprise. Public safety is the bedrock of healthy communities. We fight for responsible public safety policies and budgets. Above all, we make sure that past, current, and future firefighters are treated fairly and that firefighting remains a respected profession. Additionally, we’re proud to endorse candidates who understand public safety challenges and are committed to protecting public safety resources.
