Story

We are training to ski 1,130km from the coat of Antarctica to the South Pole in November 2023. This journey will be unassisted and supported, pulling 80+kg pulks (supply sleds) in temperatures as low as -50c with possible wind speeds of over 60moh in approximately 55 days. That's more than 20km every day.

Conquering this route using mind and muscle power alone will be a World's First as this has never been achieved by an Emergency Services Team.

Join us on our journey to eradicate gender stereotypes and to increase awareness of the impact of poor mental health.

We are preparing to face one of the harshest environments in the world to give you full insight of who we are as ordinary women – who are capable of doing extraordinary things. As firefighters, we are often portrayed as strong individuals who are resistant to tragedy, and able to cope and to continue at any cost.

This isn’t true.

Mental health affects firefighters. Gender stereotyping affects prospective firefighters. Both can affect us all.
