Congratulations to Assistant Chief Laura Baker

From the Arizona Daily Star:

On Monday, Baker received her assistant chief badge from the Tucson Fire Department. She’s now attained the highest rank that a woman has held in the history of the Tucson Fire Department.


“I’m very humbled by being the first woman assistant chief for Tucson fire,” Baker said. “I have a tendency to downplay the gender side because it shouldn’t matter. But the reality is that the significance of me being a woman in a leadership role is very important.”
