Women in the Fire Service UK (WFS) was set up in 1993 as a self-help group. Our members of all genders, come from all roles across the Fire and Rescue Service – from ﬁreﬁghters and control staff, administrative and support staff and senior officers, to members of airport, defence and works ﬁre services.
Since its formation, the membership have sought to influence the equality agenda, taking active roles in research, for example into women’s ﬁt ﬁre kit, supporting positive action initiatives, working with the government in nationwide campaigns for recruitment and playing a part in national groups with other stakeholders. We are recognised nationally, currently holding a seat on the Fire Sector Federation, amongst other inputs to the local and national agenda.
“Enabling and inspiring confident and successful women to build a more progressive Fire & Rescue Service”.
Working together • Future focused • Sharing strengths
Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
