Overview

Genois Wilson, Firefighter: She Dared to be First by Carol Butler

The book, Genois Wilson, Firefighter: She Dared To Be First is meant to be an inspiration to both young girls and young boys to encourage them to strive for their dreams, no matter what they are. The story follows the career of Genois Wilson Brabson who became the first female firefighter in the City of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Although there may not be many more opportunities for more “firsts” in the world, Mrs. Brabson’s experience led to the success she achieved during her career with the Fort Wayne Fire Department. Genois studied hard, worked hard, and believed in her dream. She was also ready physically and emotionally ready to take on Chief Lorraine’s challenge! She retired in 1995 from the Fire Department as District Chief of Public Education. In 1975 Genois Wilson Brabson was a true trailblazer. After thirty-seven years, in 2012, the City of Fort Wayne named Amy Biggs as its first female Fire Chief.
