About IAFF 45
Newport Firefighters Local 45, affiliated with International Association of Firefighters (I.A.F.F.), is primarily a Labor Organization representing the members of the Newport Fire/EMS Department in Newport, Kentucky. Established in 1918, Local 45 was one of the first sixty-six locals of the now more than 3,100 I.A.F.F. affiliates across the U.S. and Canada. Today, in addition to business of being a labor organization, Local 45 continues to sponsor programs such as College Scholarship Awards, Youth Sporting Events, Holiday Family Assistance Program and Smoke Detector Installation/Maintenance Program. Many of these programs were developed and financed by Local 45 members who were inspired to give back to the community after interactions during emergency responses.
