Firefighters on Fire! online diversity profiles feature firefighter role models for young women and people of color ages 15-25. The goal is to inform, inspire and enroll the next generation of qualified, inclusive, diverse and safety-conscious firefighters and first responders.
Our goal is to reach out to qualified, diverse potential candidates who have never considered firefighting as a career or volunteer opportunity. The two-minute profiles will reflect the powerful real-life stories of six, diverse firefighters; from growing-up in tough neighborhoods, to the challenges of being a single mother and a firefighter, to coming out as an LGBTQ member, to overcoming a variety of socioeconomic challenges. The featured profiles will share why these diverse and inclusive firefighters love the fire service, what inspired them to get involved, and what potential career and volunteer firefighters need to know to be successful today and in the future.
