35 Years of Operational Women

back to list

This year, MFB is commemorating 35 years since the first operational women joined our organisation.

To celebrate, we have developed a travelling exhibition featuring the stories and first-hand accounts of the inspiring operational women who helped shape MFB.

Join us this weekend at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) to honour the vital role women have played in emergency services and pay tribute to their important contribution to Victoria’s fire and rescue service.

The free exhibition features photos, interviews and historical research to capture the stories of just some of the women who have helped shape MFB.

The exhibition is being hosted at the Fire Services Museum of Victoria (FSMV) until Friday 16 November. FSMV located at 39 Gisborne St, East Melbourne and is open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 9am to 3pm, and Sundays 10am to 4pm. 

The exhibition will travel around Melbourne and Victoria throughout 2019, alternatively you can read about our story https://www.ourstorymfb.org.au/
