about us



The Escondido Firefighters Association (EFFA) represents the professional Firefighters serving the City of Escondido, California. We are affiliated with the International Association of Firefighters (Local 3842), The California Professional Firefighters and The California State Firefighters Association.

Each year the members of the EFFA respond to approximately 15,500 calls for service throughout the City of Escondido and the unincorporated San Diego county area of Rincon del Diablo.

The EFFA is a member driven association which works to maintain and promote quality working conditions for its members. The EFFA is also committed to being a positive force in the community we proudly serve. We are involved in a number of charitable efforts each year and take pride in making a difference to the citizens of Escondido on and off duty.
