Florida fire department shift made up by all women for first time in history
In a profession historically dominated by men, a group of women made a big wave at a Florida firehouse last week. Last Friday, the entire day only women were working in the Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue Station 65. The message these women aim to spread is one of equality and diversity while encouraging young girls to chase their dreams.

For the first time, it was manned by a shift made up of all women Station 65 on that day, from from the top down to your captain, the driver, the firefighter, the rescue lieutenant, the paramedic, every single person, uh, was female with that day of that shit, the proof is in the picture.
