This year the FPASA wanted to honour women in the Fire and Emergency Services as they truly are our unsung heroes. Women, and men, risk their lives every day for our safety and wellbeing, however women experience discrimination and a host of other historical issues which are now being addressed on a national level. The National Disaster Management team, primarily Dr. Moses Khangale and Mr. Lloyd Phetu, acknowledge the significant contribution of women in fire emergency services and together with the FPASA wanted to pay tribute to women who inspire us every day.
