It’s a girl! Er, it’s a woman!

Oklahoma City Fire Department’s first female operations district chief was named recently.

Cathy Hayes is a 19-year veteran of the fire department and one of 17 female employees, News9.com reported.

“When we are all decked out in our gear and everything we look exactly the same. You can’t tell if you’re a man or a woman,” Hayes told the television station.

There are other women in other chief roles, too. In fact, the department is hiring. Learn more at okc.gov/fire/employment.
