MADISON, Wis. — Last week, the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin (PFFW) announced their endorsement of Governor Tony Evers’ re-election. PPFW represents 4,000 career firefighters and EMS personnel in 110 communities across the state.
This endorsement emphasizes Gov. Evers’ dedication toward supporting Wisconsin’s firefighters and EMS personnel. In his first term, Gov. Evers has remained committed to increasing local funding for first responders and improving public safety. Additionally, this past year Gov. Evers announced a $30 million investment toward EMS and he has signed legislation that makes it easier for firefighters and most EMS personnel to get treatment for PTSD.
Recently, Gov. Evers also announced his next budget would include over $90 million in increased shared revenue funding, and a new $10 million public safety supplement plan to specifically help communities address EMS, police, and fire needs.

Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin (PFFW) State President Mahlon Mitchell today announced the endorsement of Governor Tony Evers for another four-year term as Governor.
“The PFFW makes this endorsement because of his ongoing support for issues affecting the health and safety of our members, our families, and the communities we serve,” President Mitchell said.
“Time after time Governor Evers has done what he can to deliver the resources to our communities so we are able to respond in time of either personal or community needs. Unfortunately, he has not received the support for his efforts in the State Legislature,” the PFFW head stated.
“The Governor has pledged to continue his past efforts and we plan to be there with him fighting for the resources our communities need.”
