Women in the Fire Service UK

Women in the Fire Service UK (WFS) is a volunteer-led and non-profit organisation.

We work with our members to help improve the recruitment, retention and progression of women in the Fire and Rescue Service. We are well-known in the industry for our training and development events in partnership with the Fire Service College. We provide information and advice to women contemplating a career in the fire service; coaching and mentoring; a portal to search/post jobs; and provide speakers for schools, careers fairs, and fire and rescue service Equality, Diversity and Inclusion events.

We exist to advance equality, addressing the gender imbalance in the Fire and Rescue Service. Government figures (2020) show just 7% of firefighters in England are women.

We want to see more women visible in the industry and beyond, so more women pursue it as a career, resulting in a more inclusive and equal service.
