A group of women in a remote Aboriginal community in South Australia’s APY Lands have formed the state’s first Indigenous female firefighting team. For cultural reasons women in Mimili cannot work with the men in the Country Fire Service (CFS) brigade in the town.

But with the men often absent on cultural business and other help too far away, the women decided to undertake training so they could protect the community.
