It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that OAPFF Secretary Treasurer Mark Horton has passed away. Mark was tragically killed in an auto accident on his way to an IAFF Training Seminar this afternoon.
Mark was a tireless advocate for our profession. His leadership was essential as we fought some of the biggest battles our organization has ever faced. Senate Bill 5, pension protection, and cancer presumption are just some of the victories that we accomplished during Mark's tenure as Secretary/Treasurer. More than that, Mark was my friend whose counsel I valued.
Please keep Mark, his wife Barbara, and all of those affected by his untimely passing in your thoughts and prayers.
Rest easy Brother, we've got it from here.

Text Messaging from UnionCentrics.com. Whether it's a member alert, meeting notification or emergency call back... now you can send a broadcast text message to your members. The message is delivered directly to their cellular phone... no internet access required, just a simple basic txt compatible cell phone.
This feature is seamlessly integrated into your site and is member authenticated. Members can simply edit their profile to opt in or out at anytime.
While broadcast email is great, it relies on the member to regularly check their email for news and updates. Broadcast text messaging goes directly to their cell phone and decreases delay in responding to your message.
No sending fees! Usually, technologies like this use third party providers and require sending fees on every message sent. One message sent to 500 members could become very expensive. Our system is built right into your members profile. Please note members receiving messages on the cell phone could incur fees from their cellular provider.
