Board Members

Joe Bourque


My name is Joe Bourque, and I currently preside as the President of the Murrieta Firefighters' Association, Local 3540. Born and raised in Los Angeles, I began my fire service career in 2006 with the Cathedral City Fire Department and served as the Secretary to CCPFA's Executive Board for three years. I came to the Murrieta Fire Department in 2011, was appointed to the Political Action Committee as Treasurer in 2012, and elected as Treasurer to MFA's Executive Board in 2014. I was Treasurer for three years before being elected President in 2018.

With what little free time I have, I make it a point to spend it focused on my family. Together, we enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, fishing, hiking, and various other outdoor activities. And when time is of the abundance, my wife and I will plan a SCUBA diving trip somewhere tropical.

I find it both an honor and privilege to represent the fine members of L3540 and I would be remiss not to acknowledge the exemplary work done by the previous executive boards before me. I also value the incredible team that I currently have, and could not attribute our successes without their commitment, dedication, and hard work. Considering all of our recent accomplishments, I'm excited to see our future growth, both in our department and our association

Brian Jackson

Vice President

Hello, my name is Brian Jackson. I'm the Vice President of MFA L3540 and an Engineer/Paramedic with Murrieta Fire & Rescue. I reside in Rancho Cucamonga, the city I grew up in, with my wife and son. I have been in the fire service for over twenty years and have served Murrieta Fire & Rescue for the past fourteen years. My involvement on the Executive Board of MFA L3540 began six years ago. I served two terms as secretary and the past two years as Vice President.

As an association we have come a long way and have had man accomplishments. This is due to a great working relationship with fire management, city leaders, and stake holders in our community. I believe by working together we can strive for competitive wages, benefits, and working conditions for the members of MFA L3540 while keeping an emphasis on safety for our Firefighters and the community. This will maintain the high level of service our customers have come to know and appreciate from Murrieta Fire & Rescue.
