General App Questions

How do I get the CPF Mobile App?

The CPF Mobile App foriPhone and iPad is available at the iTunes App Store. The CPF Mobile App for Android smartphones is available at Google Play.

When I touch the Campaign 2012 button, it sends me to a login page. Why is that?

CPF's Campaign 2012 information -- as well as a variety of other special content -- is available to active and retired CPF members only. Please REGISTER HERE to get this special content. You can also register to view this content through the app itself.

The videos and some of the content sometimes loads slowly. Why is that?

Like most mobile apps, CPF's works best with the fastest connection possible. When you can, try to view videos when you are on a WiFi connection. Some of the features -- notably the "Where's The Fire" section -- link to external sites, where bandwidth may also be a factor.

Does the CPF Mobile App work on Android tablets?

What about the Kindle Fire or Nook tablets?

When I watch videos in the CPF Firevision section, it asks me to choose a browser. Which one should I choose?

Pick the one marked "YouTube". Video playback on Android works best when running through the YouTube dedicated app. When the browser choice is presented, choose the YouTube button. It will take you to the CPF Firevision mobile page. You can watch any of the programs there. Return to the CPF app by using the "Back" button on your Android smartphone. If your problems persist, contact us at

Close the program and restart. If the problem persists, send us a note at Be sure to give us the model of the phone and the Android operating system you are using.
