This March, on the 8th, International Women’s Day is commemorated, and the Fire Department wants to highlight the important work carried out by the 71 women who are part of the Fire Department.
Currently, women are represented in all areas of the same, both in the fire department, whether professional, voluntary or forestry, as well as in the volunteer work of the provincial Civil Protection group, the operators of the Provincial Coordination Center or the different professionals from the administrative area. Without distinction of genders in the performance of their jobs.
Certain areas, such as administrative, are made up mostly of women while in other facets such as firefighter women were pioneers when they joined the Fire Department in its first year of foundation, although today their presence in this area is still much lower than that of his male companions.
