Grassroots Wildland Firefighters - Quarterly Update
Grassroots Wildland Firefighters was formed in 2019 by active and retired federal wildland firefighters. The intent of the group is to address everyday issues such as pay and classification, comprehensive health and well-being, and workers’ comp claims.

We recognize the increasing demands on federal wildland firefighters as the fire environment has continued to increase in complexity, size, and duration. The federal government has failed to keep pace with this changing dynamic and firefighters are left with increased mental illnesses, increased rates of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and pay that falls below minimum wages in many parts of the country.

GRWFF is focused on making our diverse group of voices heard by leadership and elected officials. Our website has links to facilitate communication to officials. The organization is actively engaged with members of the House and Senate to find solutions to these issues.

We acknowledge these are complex and multifaceted issues spanning several government agencies. This will be a long battle as we build on previous work to create a better quality of life for those who sacrifice so much of themselves to protect life, communities and natural resources.
