Manchin Congratulates Huntington Fire Chief Jan Rader On Her Retirement

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) congratulated Huntington Fire Chief Jan Rader on her retirement and future endeavors. 

“I have never met someone who exudes the values of public service more than Jan Rader. Our state, country and world would be a better place with more people like her. It’s impossible to quantify everything Chief Rader has given to Huntington and our entire state. As the first woman in West Virginia to lead a professional fire department she broke down barriers for young women and served as a true inspiration for all West Virginians. Her leadership in combating the drug epidemic has been instrumental and we are all grateful. I know she will continue to lead Huntington forward as the new Director of the Mayor's Council on Public Health and Drug Control Policy.”
