NEW CASTLE COUNTY UNIFORMED FIREFIGHTERS LOCAL 4417
The New Castle County Uniformed Firefighters Union was organized by a group of 10 Christiana Career Firefighter/NREMT's in November 2004. The group was accepted by the International Association of Firefighters in January 2005 and assigned the I.A.F.F. local number 4417. Local 4417 has been recognized through the NLRB and is the first unionized organization for (combination department) Career Firefighter/EMT's in the State of Delaware. Since creation, the I.A.F.F. Local 4417 continues to increase in membership working for various stations throughout New Castle County Delaware.
I.A.F.F. Local 4417 partners with MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) in raising money for awareness.
