FSWO announces 2015 winner of the President’s Trailblazer Award, Sue E Jones

Sue is a trailblazer on a number of fronts. She was one of the co-founders of Fire Service Women Ontario and Camp FFIT at the City of Ottawa.

Sue is well known amongst the FSWO members and has been with the organization since its inception in 2009. She has been in the fire service since 2005 and she can attest first-hand to the hard work it takes to pursue this career. Early in her career, Sue understood the need to reach out to women and be a supportive mentor. She recognizes the importance of giving back to the community and has been a volunteer at many fundraising events, including for Habitat for Humanity where she worked with Women in Emergency and Protective Services to build affordable housing and to raise $20,000. She has done pretty well every job on the FSWO board and she was the founding editor of the very successful FSWO magazine. Congratulations on your award and thank you for all you do, Sue.
