Although statistics vary, they consistently show that women make up just a small percentage of first responders in the United States. This holds true locally. Prescott Woman magazine reached out to local police and firefighters to learn more about their first responder experiences. While each woman shared a unique story, they all have in common the desire to help their community members and a sense of fulfillment that comes from doing so. None of them shies away from a challenge, and many of them said the day-to-day variety of their job keeps things fresh.

The relationship Cecilia and Candace have developed is about an even bigger movement: women empowering women. Candace said she’d love to see businesses cross collaborate on a larger scale, choosing female-led partners to support one another.
