There has been a big push in many State Government Fire and Emergency Services across Australia to diversify their personnel.
WA is no exception to the fact that our various services have traditionally had more men than women for various complex reasons. We know DFES is working on addressing that for the State-owned services, but as you can see by just one of our amazing Brigades, the Local Government Volunteer Bush Fire Service is also doing its bit.
So here’s to the ladies on the frontline and the many thousands we know who also do equally important jobs supporting men in the same position.
And thank you to the awesome team at Bedfordale Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade for posting this very special article on your facebook page.
