Floyd County has first Female Fire Chief


There is a new chief at Mud Creek Fire Department and she is the first woman to hold the position in Floyd County history.

22-year-old, Stephanie McKinney, is a senior biology and psychology major at the University of Pikeville...while also being a member of the fire department for three years.

With the most training hours last year in the department, she says her work ethic caught others attention...naming her chief.

McKinney says she is also thankful for the outpouring of support from all the other departments in Floyd County.
