Smart Girl Meredith Walker spent yesterday in the company of female firefighters at the International Association of Women in Fire and Emergency Services's 2014 conference. All of their stories and experiences are unique, just like Regina's. Take a moment today to reflect on the work these women and men do. Thank you to Women You Should Know for sharing! #SpreadtheLove #AmyPoehlerSmartGirls
On 9/11 firefighters went to Ground Zero to do the impossible. They were trying to put out a fire that no-one could reach. Many weren’t meant to be at work that day, saw the death and destruction on their TV screens – and grasped the incredible danger of it – and still showed up anyway. 346 men and women who laced up their boots, put on their helmets and solemnly trooped to Ground Zero to do their work didn’t come back.
