About Arthur F. McIntyre
Arthur retired from the San Francisco Fire Department in 1976, after 30 years of service – the majority of which were spent at Engine 17, located behind the Mint at 5th and Jessie.
In addition to his career as a Firefighter, Arthur was also a veteran of WWII, a referee for both High School and College level basketball, a supervisor of the officials for the Pac Ten Conference, and was a key advocate for the improvement of working conditions for Firefighters in San Francisco.
In 1951, at the request of then Fire Chief Edward Walsh, Arthur became the ﬁrst manager of SF Fire Credit Union. Through his vision and tireless efforts, Arthur served as the spark that made the Credit Union what it is today.
