"Opening doors for women in the fire service"


Welcome to the wesbite for the North Star Women's Firefighter Association.  We are a non-profit organization that assists with mentoring, networking and training women in the Fire Service, and those interested in joining the Fire Service. 

2012 has been a busy, but great year so far!  We have had some great presenters already, including Brenda Berkman and Jona Olsson.  After Jona's workshop here in Minnesota, she was awarded the 2012 Volunteer Fire Chief of the Year Award.  Many congratulations to Jona.  Those who know Jona, know that she truly deserves this award.

On September 30th, many firefighters across the state had the privelege of being a part of the Minnesota Fallen Firefighters Memorial Dedication at the State Capital Grounds.  This was a very moving, and historical event.  We are grateful that the families of those who gave their lives now have an appropriate memorial showing our appreciation and remembrance for their sacrifices.

This week, the NSWFA will be heading to Duluth for the Minnesota State Fire Chief's Association Annual Conference.  If you are attending the event, please stop by our booth!

After the MSFCA Conference, we will be hosting a training session at Flint Hills Resources on October 27th, and our Weekend Conference on November 10th and 11th.  Check our "Events" page for more information on both of those.

Please contact us if you have any questions, or would like additional information.

Thanks for visiting our site, and stay safe.
