Welcome to Women and Firefighting Australasia (WAFA). WAFA is a non-profit professional organisation to support women either in, or considering a career in, the Australasian firefighting industry.
The Gender Balance Overview of Australasian Firefighters 2015 is a WAFA initiative to establish the current state of play for all Fire Agencies within Australasia. As a base we hope it will encourage Agencies to set statistical objectives for gender balance and, in turn, improve all diversity reporting.
More information on the Hot Right Now page.
WAFA membership is open to both men and women, salaried or volunteer, and is open to people in any aspect of the industry from catering and administration through to firefighting and senior management.
