BOISE, Idaho – The Professional Fire Fighters of Idaho (PFFI) have announced their endorsement for Brad Little to be Idaho’s next governor. The organization’s president, Tom Lovell, praised Little for his knowledge of the state and the day-to-day issues that face Idahoans, including his commitment to job growth and education and his continued support of the Public Employees Retirement System of Idaho (PERSI).

“We appreciate Lt. Governor Little’s open door policy and his willingness to listen to us,” said Lovell. “His experience makes him the best candidate to lead Idaho in the right direction and allow organizations like ours to have a seat at the table when important decisions that affect us are being made.”

Little recently participated in the PFFI’s annual FireOPS 101 training to gain a better understanding of the physical demands, extensive training, risk factors and life saving techniques the men and women of our local fire departments face while serving to protect Idahoans on a daily basis.

“Having recently completed the fire training course, I was able to get a glimpse of the demands these first responders face on a daily basis. These men and women are hardworking and dedicated to their profession, and it is an honor to have received this endorsement. I look forward to working closely with this incredible group as Idaho’s next governor,” said Lt. Governor Little.

The Professional Fire Fighters of Idaho has a long-standing history in the Gem State and the organization represents more than 1,200 professional firefighters from all across the state.
