Becoming a firefighter has some of the most demanding physical and moral requirements, so finding qualified applicants is particularly difficult. As one of the busiest departments in the country, Atlanta Fire Rescue’s force doesn’t come close to reflecting the city’s diverse populations. Our goal was to use feelings of pride, honor, and a sense of duty to inspire women, Latinos, and LGBTQ candidates to become the next generation of Atlanta’s bravest.
Potential candidates needed to know it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from or how you identify, if you can step forward and pass the tests, you instantly earn a place in a close-knit family of elites.
The earliest report indicated that over 160 women and 80 Latinos have applied to be some of Atlanta's bravest. To date, these unprecedented numbers continue to climb.
