Is it harder for a woman to get hired?

The Charleston Fire Department is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate against race or gender.  All candidates have to pass the same physical ability exam.   Women enjoy respect in the Department because they have demonstrated their abilities in order to be hired.   In training everyone is held to the same standard.   During the CFD Training Academy, one of the most important things instructors look for is that recruits are giving 100%.
