This section is dedicated to all the retired members of Local 798, who worked many long hours to maintain and improve the working conditions and benefits enjoyed by all San Francisco Fire Fighters. Retirees’ efforts established a solid framework of working conditions and benefits for active members to build upon.. Let us never forget . . .
