Girls on Fire - History

Girls On Fire, a not-for-profit organisation, was founded in 2016 by Bronnie Mackintosh, station officer with Fire & Rescue NSW. As 95 per cent of Australia's firefighters are currently white males, Bronnie is passionate about increasing both the number of women and different ethnic groups in the fire service, to create a more diverse, inclusive and effective workforce.
