Phoenix, AZ — The Professional Fire Fighters of Arizona (PFFAZ) today endorsed John McCain’s reelection to the U.S. Senate, highlighting his leadership on public safety.

“There is no person better positioned to protect the people of Arizona than John McCain,” said President Bryan Jeffries. “As co-chairman and one of the last remaining founding members of the bipartisan Congressional Fire Caucus, John McCain authored legislation that improved firefighting technologies and training and provided funding for the National Fire Academy. In the wake of 9/11, he fought for more than a decade to make sure first responders had the public spectrum necessary to establish an inter-operable, emergency communications network. John McCain understands and appreciates the work of first responders and we encourage the voters of Arizona to return John McCain to the U.S. Senate.”

“I am honored to receive the support of the Professional Fire Fighters of Arizona, a group of brave men and women who proudly serve our community,” said John McCain. “Your courage is an example to the rest of us, and inspires many others to serve a cause greater than self interest, to live bravely, purposefully and selflessly. Thank you for your willingness to risk your own safety to protect Arizona families.”
