Indie Select
Firewomen: A Viewpoint Presentation
Program Description

In a class of 50 Boston Fire Academy recruits, only six are women. Like the men, they brave the rigorous 14-week training regimen that many recruits fail. Who will make it? Watch these young women in a real life "Survivor" where challenges include a journey through the " Maze," a zero-visability search and escape simulation; and the "Burn House," a space filled with fire and choking smoke. Get a glimpse of their lives away from the burning buildings and an insight into what drives them in their struggle to make it in this life-threatening profession.
