Welcome

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 Traditional Owners as custodians of the lands where we work together with the communities of Australasia. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of these lands, their spirits and their legacy.
