2020 has been a challenging year delivering too many hardships, injustices & heartaches... making the victories & celebrations that much more special and worthy of acknowledging. And it’s usually in the quietest of moments that significance has occurred... Saturday 24th October 2020 - B Shift, Station One, Engine 31 - sees its first all-female promoted crew... Captain Natalie Forst, Driver Adrienne Selbitschka and Firefighter Jessica Meuwissen.
Ability to do the job is top priority... and gender, orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, creed, et al of the person in the position shouldn’t matter IF all have had equal access.
