Registration: Women of Rescue Conference

Women of Rescue Survey


Thank you for taking the time to engage in this survey! Women of Rescue is currently distributing an interest inventory to gauge the needs of women within the fire service and emergency medicine fields. These surveys will directly reflect the itinerary for the upcoming Women of Rescue, first annual Women’s Conference held on November 16, 2024, at ACE Adventure Resort. Your voice matters!

In the fire service and emergency medicine fields, it is apparent that women are vastly underrepresented. It has been estimated that women make up about 35% of staffing in emergency medicine and a shocking 5% to 10% of firefighters. This agency’s goal is to foster collaboration, connection, and targeted training to both support current women within the rescue fields and also inspire other women to join.

The Women of Rescue first annual conference will welcome women from West Virginia and surrounding areas to engage in top-notch training, networking, and have some fun along the way. Our agency’s purpose is to enlighten the women of West Virginia regarding opportunities in the fire service and rescue fields and enhance their abilities through instructional, demonstrational, interactive, and collaborative exercises. The first annual conference will be a one-day session but will be expanded to a multiday event in the upcoming years.

In addition to the 2024 conference, we also pride ourselves in promoting women-led trainings across the state. To follow along, engage, and collaborate with our efforts, please join our Facebook group: Women of Rescue | Facebook
