 Thank you to the following members for helping, or offering to help, the Local makes a difference at the polls: Leroy Bachert, Chris Groller, Jody Mongolitz, John Hammel, Jason Tatum, Zach Shepard, Lloyd Evans, John Eddleman, Tim Bruce, Chad Ege, Devin Grow, Bob Xander, Joe Kemmerer.
 Without your help, we would not have been able to make a big impact. We did just that yesterday. Pete Schweyer needed our help and we showed him and others watching, that Local 302 is a strong ally and will come out big for our friends. We made a significant impact in the polls no matter what happens. Pete is extremely grateful and will always be loyal to us. This is how we grow our Union as well as our Department.
 You, the members of Local 302, are our strength and without your support, we would not be able to demonstrate our resolve.
Thanks again to all of those who answered the call. We look forward to having more members come out in the future and help in showing that Local 302 is a must-have friend to get elected.
 We will post updates to our election results as they become more clear.
 Next up the Mayoral race in 2021.
Thank you,
Adam Perreault
 Tuesday is election day and we need help at the polls. This is an extremely important election year for Local 302. Our friends who help secure funding, protect Act 111 and workers rights, and help to give Allentown Fire Fighters a voice on the state and Federal stage are facing serious opposition. If the opposition candidates win we will no longer have representatives that will stand up for us. I promise you they will only care about their crazy anti labor or anti public safety agenda. We need you to come out and represent Local 302 at the polls and show support for candidates who will support us and answer our calls day and night. This is how we will continue our growth in strength, safety, and numbers as Allentown Fire Fighters. Supporting candidates who support us allows us to secure funding for special teams equipment, new apparatus, and negotiate good contracts. We need members
 to staff both morning and afternoon polls. This is it, this is how we stand up for our needs as Allentown Fire Fighters. Don’t assume that someone else will do it, come out and help. Text or call Perreault (484)892-1787 for details and availability.

November 3rd is rapidly approaching. This election is not only pivotal in the presidential election but even more so locally. Pete Schweyer our current Representative is facing a serious challenger and stands to lose the seat. Pete has been a staunch friend of firefighters and has been instrumental in helping to rebuild the Department. Let’s support our friend get Pete re-elected. To get this done we need to show force. We can show force by handing out support literature at the polling stations. This is a very effective method of supporting a candidate.  We get to the voters as they go in to cast their votes. A lot of times this makes a difference in undecided or uninformed voters. We need a lot of members to come out and show Local 302 Allentown Fire Fighters support Pete like he supports us.  Do not assume someone else is going to do it, we need everyone. Contact Perreault (484) 892-1787 with your shirt size and availability.–


 Local 302 Allentown Fire Fighters are proud to be partnering with the YMCA in re-starting the Firehouse Fridays program. Every Friday from 3-4 at Hibernia Fire Station located at Ridge and Tilghman we serve the children of Allentown under 18 bagged meals and meet the families of our community. Unfortunately, COVID has forced the program to make some changes to meet safety guidelines but we are working with them to continue serving the families of Allentown.


If you can’t sit at the firehouse kitchen table and explain and justify the money you’re spending on behalf of the union. You Don’t Deserve to lead.

I’m picking up the yard signs Monday for Pete Schweyer so we will start distribution next week. I need guys to help get them out in mostly the soutside and some areas of center city. Pete has been a huge advocate of ours and is apart of why our Department has added new equipment and apparatus over the past few years. He has a viable opponent and we cannot afford to lose him. We need guys to come out and help us get Pete re-elected. Don’t assume someone else will do it. All we ask is two hours or if you have more time available, even better.

Contact Perreault, (484)892-1787, with your availability and any questions.  —

 We’re back in the political season. All that has transpired over this summer from COVID, de-funding Police and local protests, to a major storm, show us how important it is to support our political friends.
 One such friend is State Rep. Pete Schweyer. Pete has been instrumental in rebuilding our fleet and securing funding for various equipment needs. He faced a challenging primary season which is still carrying on in the court system. We cannot afford to lose his experience and influence in Harrisburg. The City’s political landscape is changing and our friend’s political opponents are not going to be helpful for us at the state level.
 With that said, starting next week I am in need of help putting out yard signs for Rep. Pete Schweyer. We did it during the primary and his campaign was extremely grateful. Please come out and help us get Pete re-elected. The more members we get out, the faster and easier it is.
Thank you to all who have supported our political efforts. Your help is what builds our Local and Department.
