In 1975 I was one of 2 women who were fire fighters in the Umpqua National Forest in Oregon. There were no separate accommodations for us, especially when we were part of the hot shot crew that traveled to fires in Michigan and Montana. Our fire chief was so supportive, he felt a well rounded team needed to include what each gender brought to the table including strength, endurance and perspective. I wish I had taken more photos of that time and kept a journal to document our unique journey. Some of the men were threatened our presence but overall we were a team and it was truly a memorable experience. I attribute part of the success to having strong and fair leadership.
