International Women's Day 2021

This International Women’s Day, VFBV wants to celebrate the women who contribute so much to VFBV, CFA, emergency services and their communities.

The theme for International Women’s Day in 2021 is “Choose to Challenge” – where a challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change. Each day the more than 12,000 female CFA volunteers challenge the stereotype of what a firefighter is and how women can be involved in any and all emergency services, while also leading the way for future generations.

Thank you for today and every day to all the fabulous, dedicated, highly skilled and much appreciated women in the CFA and across all fire and emergency services.

Lets all work together to encourage women challenge what it means to be a volunteer with CFA, together we can all make a difference.
