This is the first ever Australian national forum for women involved in firefighting

A forum that we hope will:
  • Recognise and celebrate the contribution of women to firefighting in Australia

  • Discuss the issues faced by women in firefighting

  • Develop strategies and support networks

  • Encourage greater participation of women in all aspects of firefighting and fire management

Five volunteer members, who will represent the CFS, departed for Sydney tonight to present to an Australian audience, what the roles of Women in the Fire Service in SA are.
