Santa Clara County Fire hosts Women's Career Day Symposium
County Fire's Mc Cormack Training Center served as the setting for a gathering of women from all over Northern California interested in learning about a career in firefighting. The event opened with an introduction to women in the fire service presented by Captain Deborah Stocksick, followed by a series of hands-on activities that included advancing a hose line into a smoke filled structure and the use of various rescue tools typically deployed to extricate victims from auto accidents.
This was a well-attended event that afforded participants an outstanding opportunity to network with others interested in becoming firefighters while also offering a realistic glimpse into the multi-faceted work of today's fire service.
