Treasurer / Public Officer
Hayley Dun -
Fire and Rescue New South Wales
Hayley Dun is 27 years old and born and was raised in the small town of Nowra, which is 2 hours South of Sydney. Hayley’s father has been a firefighter all her life and growing up in that environment is what inspired her to chase the dream. “During my childhood experience at my local Fire Station there was only one female. As a young girl I found this particularly inspiring to see a female working in what society has us believe to be a“man’s world”. I knew growing up that I wanted to be someone to break the moulds and stereotypes.”
Hayley currently work in the Emergency Services Industry with Fire and Rescue NSW as a Firefighter and as an Aviation Firefighter with Broadspectrum on a military base. Previously she worked as a Senior Emergency Response Officer with a company subcontracted to Department of Defence providing a Search and Rescue, Medical and remote firefighting capability and working alongside CHC Helicopters. She was one of the first women to become a motor driver/pump operator at her FRNSW station.
“I would love to play a more active role in empowering and supporting women in or wanting to pursue a career in firefighting. It has been a long-term goal of mine to become a part of the WAFA Board as I feel it’s a great platform and support network for all to be assisted and supported in their current roles or pursuing careers. In my spare time I do a lot of Firefighter Stair Climbs for various charities as well as fulfilling my role as WAFA treasurer and public officer.”
