Igniting Change: Women in the Fire Service


Poster for Igniting Change: Women in the Fire Service
Women have been making a difference in the fire service for decades. This production brings together women working as Firefighters, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians at the Lakeland Fire Department and other departments across the nation.
They share their stories about what inspired them to become emergency responders and how a job became a rewarding, lifelong career. They found their calling and hope to inspire other women to do the same.
Download a copy of the poster and help us share the word, that women can make a difference, in the fire service! 







See and learn more about Igniting Change: Women in the Fire Service, and what the department is doing to raise awareness about careers in the fire service, through local media coverage of the effort.
