History

In 2005, the inaugural Australasian Women in Firefighting Forum (WIFF 2005) was held at the Holiday Inn, Sydney Airport.

Three resolutions were made at this Forum:

  1.  A report on the Forum was to be presented to the Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC) - completed in 2006;
  2.  Another Conference was to be held - Women in Firefighting 2006 was held at Darling Harbour in Sydney in June 2006; and
  3.  A professional association was to be established for women in the Australasian firefighting industry.

Consequently, Women and Firefighting Australasia (WAFA) was incorporated in November 2007. Since that time WAFA has been steadily working to promote women in firefighting by working with organisations, fire services and individual members.
WAFA has experience running several highly successful conferences since the inaugural Women in Firefighting forum in Sydney in 2005. Since then conferences have been held in Darling Harbour, the Yarra Valley, Adelaide, Canberra, and most recently in Brisbane in 2016.
