Welcome to Women and Firefighting Australasia (WAFA).

Our Vision

Promoting equity across our sector to empower all women to embrace their strengths.

Our Mission

In collaboration with individuals, communities and emergency services, we build confidence and empower women to achieve their full potential and be supported as women, in their roles within our sector.


WAFA acknowledges and recognises the indigenous peoples and cultures of Australasia and the sacred connection that they have as guardians of the land and environment. We are also dedicated to supporting our members in upholding any specific commitment to indigenous people that each of our member parties may have.

Connection: "The energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship."

— Brené Brown
