First Female FireFighter of Pakistan
Shazia Parveen, is the first female firefighter of Pakistan
and possibly, of Asia as well.
She belongs to Vehari district of Punjab, Pakistan.
But this wasn’t that easy for her, to just step out and
stop the fires across the town.
She had to go through
extensive training in Punjab Emergency Service Lahore.
“Amongst the 600 people there, I was the only
woman who completed the training.”
Jump, fight fire, climbing up the roofs with
ropes were all part of her training.
It was her dream to have a job like that.
So when the female department of 1122 services opened,
it was, in a way, a dream came true for her.
Describing her ecstasy, she said: “I was told during
the training that I would become the first lady firefighter of Asia,
which made me extremely jubilant and it was
like my dream had come true.”
As a female worker, her work is also being acknowledged and
appreciated by his male counter-parts.
“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, Set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.” Shazia Parveen
