AFFI Honor Guard Membership

The Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois Honor Guard is a unit comprised of Union Fire Fighters. To become a member of the Honor Guard, you must attend the Annual Honor Guard Convention. At the Convention, there is an Induction Ceremony for all new members. There is a three year commitment, and you must attend at least two of the District training sessions each year, which are posted on the Districts section of this web site. Registration for Convention is $115.00 for current AFFI Honor Guard members.  There will be an additional $55.00 new member fee to cover the cost of items given to new inductees, bringing the first year total to $170.00. Once an active member, if you are unable to attend the Annual Convention, a $25.00 Membership Fee is required to maintain active membership for the year. If you are interested in becoming a member or just want more information about our organization, please contact the AFFI at (217) 522-8180. Membership is open to all AFFI members.

The Honor Guard has over 600 Members throughout the State of Illinois. The size of our organization allows members to respond to any assignment on a relatively short notice. The Honor Guard performs each year at the Illinois Fallen Fire Fighter/Medal of Honor Ceremony, as well as the IAFF Memorial Ceremony in Colorado Springs, CO. The Honor Guard is dedicated to performing duties for line of duty deaths for Illinois Union Fire Fighters.
