IAFF Ladies’ Auxiliary

Mrs. Ernest W. Howard calls for the organization of an International Association of Fire Fighters Ladies’ Auxiliary. She wrote, “It has been said that for every union man gained, for every addition to the ranks of organized labor, there should be an addition to the ranks of noble women who carry on the battle for better working conditions with their menfolk. And so it follows that every local of the IAFF should be supported by a strong Ladies’ Auxiliary, a Chinese wall, shall we say, against the lamentations of the weak politicians who seek to cut the budget and lower the standard of living of firemen and their families.”
