Have you ever considered becoming a firefighter?  With a long history of being stereotyped as a "man's job" today's trends indicate more and more women are thinking of public safety careers. Every day in Fire Service, highly trained women are engaged in firefighting, fire prevention and emergency medical services (EMS) making significant life safety contributions to local fire departments and their communities.  Do you have what it takes?

A Day In the Life of A Firefighter video is a great introduction to women in the fire service told by women in the fire service industry.  The clip was filmed in California featuring California firefighters. While there are some organizational differences in Fort Wayne, the video provides a glimpse at the day and the life of a firefighter.
