Less than thirty women are part of the Montreal Fire Department, compared to more than 2,300 men. In recent years however, things have started to change, thanks to the " Les filles ont le feu sacré" program, an initiative intended to make young women aware of the attractions of the rewarding but very demanding job. During their studies, the hopefuls must redouble their efforts in order to be accepted in a field that doesn’t make it easy for them. We see this in the path full of pitfalls for young Justine and Karine, who would like to follow in the footsteps of Mélanie, a firefighter for 10 years at Barracks 41 in the Parc-Extension district.
