MADISONVILLE, Ky. — More than half of the city’s 60 firefighters voted last summer to organize under the International Association of Fire Fighters, AFL-CIO, which has 300,000 members in the U.S. and Canada.
The group received its charter membership on Dec. 17, said Henry Strader, president of the Madisonville Professional Fire Fighters Local 4921, which is part of the western Kentucky district.
