Our new name - Women in the Fire Service (WFS UK)

January 2014 sees a marked change to our organisation with a new name - ‘Women in the Fire Service UK'.
 
For over 20 years our organisation has grown and after consulting with our members, it was felt ‘Networking Women in the Fire Service’ no longer reflected our aims and goal.  Although there is still a level of networking involved we are more focused towards training and developing, as well as supporting.
 
It will be a gradual process over the next few months to complete our name change in readiness for our relaunch at the Training & Development weekend in June.
