Equity on Fire

In partnership with Women in Homeland Security SoCal, SCI held an informative panel discussion on the current climate in fire services and what is being done to end harassment, discrimination, and abuse for firefighters, as well as end the historically skewed professional archetype of the role of firefighters to be more inclusive of all races, genders, and sexualities.

The panel included remarks from Los Angeles Fire Department Battalion Chief Kris Larson and Orange County Fire Authority Captain Lauren Andrade and was moderated by Los Angeles Fire Department Commissioner Rebecca Ninburg.
