Product description

Book Description

Fire Woman is the story of how a young woman brought up in rural Wales coped in the testosterone-fuelled world of the fire brigade, where even today 96 per cent of all staff are male.

About the Author

Josephine Reynolds signed up as a trainee firefighter with the Norfolk Fire Service in the summer of 1982. At just seventeen years old, she was the first ever woman to join the fire service full time in the UK. After falling in love with fellow firefighter David Blakeney, an ex-French Foreign Legion fighter, the pair married and headed to the Amazon to continue their adventurous life together.
