15 honored as part of Women’s History Month 


CHICAGO, IL  – Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka saluted 15 fire service leaders, including two of the state’s female Fire Chiefs, on Tuesday as part of her office’s celebration of Women’s History Month.

In presenting the leaders with personalized proclamations, Topinka applauded the tenacity and courage of women who have not only entered fire service, but risen to the highest ranks of their departments.

“For years women interested in fire service have been told they need not apply,” said Topinka. “But you broke through that barrier, rose to the highest ranks of your Departments, and in the process showed women and girls everywhere that anything is possible if they work at it. I thank you for your service.”
