Blog Post Image: What does a fireman do?

New York City firefighter Sarinya Srisakul speaks about her work in the FDNY Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014, at a Manhattan fire house. Srisakul, who didn’t work with another woman for five years, took pictures when she did because it was such a rarity. In the nation’s largest fire department, out of more than 10,500 uniformed firefighters, only 37 are women, one of the lowest percentages of any big-city department. That number is expected to grow after a record number of women took the latest exam following heavy recruitment spurred by a landmark court order three years ago, but advocates say more needs to be done.
